The Converse All-Star Leather Jacket is a pristine combination of two ‘rebellious’ articles of clothing. A black leather jacket and a pair of chucks comprises half of the American archetypal outfit – all you need is some blue Levi’s denim and a white t-shirt. Schott Leather, a staple in all-American fashion since 1913, introduced the Schott Perfecto Leather Jacket in 1928, which became ubiquitous in the post-War fashion scene. Today, Converse and the Chuck Taylor is bringing it back the 50’s with the Schott Leather uppered Converse All-Star Leather Jacket, part of the Converse First String premium collection. These will retail at $200 and release exclusively at Converse First String retailers on December 15th so take a look at a the detailed images below and let us know what you think of the design.
