Utilitarian pieces, adopted by rebellious figures. The Dr. Martens boot and Schott NYC Perfecto® jacket have a lot in common. This collaboration is a fusion of British and American counterculture.
The 1490 Schott NYC boot takes cues from Schott NYC’s iconic Perfecto®, the original leather biker jacket made famous by nonconformists in the second half of the 20th Century. Built from our signature Smooth leather, the 10-eye boot is enhanced with metal hardware, snaps, rivets and zipper pulls – all trims on the original Perfecto® – as well as core Docs markings: a grooved smoke sole, yellow welt stitching and an AirWair heel loop.
- The 1490 is the archetypal Docs boot. Created to conform. And worn by those who don’t.
- Polished Smooth is the original Dr. Martens leather: super durable, with a smooth finish polished to a high shine. Clean with a damp cloth and care with Dr. Martens Shoe Polish
- Our Goodyear-welted lines are heat-sealed at 700°C and reinforced with our signature welt stitch
- These Dr. Martens x Schott NYC boots arrive in dual-branded packaging
Airwairs original signature leather: a firm, finished leather with a smooth, semi bright appearance.
[Smooth] = Clean Away dirt using a damp cloth, allow to dry apply correct colored wax-based shoe polish to restore shine as desired.
Dr. Martens run true to US size with a little wiggle room for breathability or thicker socks. UK size on shoe.
Do up the buttons and straighten the collar upwards, then turn inside out.
If you’ve been out dancing around at your local gig venue, wash it at 40˚c to get it really fresh.
If your shirt isn’t so dirty, wash it at 30˚c, or better yet, why not wear it again.
After washing, gently re-shape your Fred Perry Shirt whilst it’s still damp.
Please, steer clear of the tumble dryer. It hates your clothes.
Hang your Fred Perry Shirts up inside out and either dry flat, or line dry in a shady spot.
