Our classic Perfecto Jacket now available in horsehide. Hand made right here in our factory. Similar to the 618, this jacket runs slim, so order one size larger than normal.

Horsehide Perfection
I'm nervous anytime I buy something without getting to try it on first. Especially if it costs me a almost week's pay but I put my fears aside and ordered the 618HH after talking with Gail and Jerri and it's a PERFECT FIT! I love the shiny look and feel of it. So glad I went with HH over the 618 steer. Excellent craftsmanship, super fast 2 day delivery and great material...What more can you ask for in a leather?
I ordered this in a 48 even though I have a 44 inch chest and I'm glad I did. With a thick shirt on underneath it fits snug. Can't wait to break it in...

Great Jacket-- Market Niche Oportunity
I just got mine size 34. I own several Schotts including a patent leather I had custom made thru you website. I'm always looking for the very thight-one-size-too-small fit, and the 34 is just about good enough, I'd rather have a 32. My suggestion: start making 32s. I guarantee a market. As you know your market has and is expanding to the fashion crowd. I've talked about this w NYC Schott LES store guys and they agree. There's nothing like a Schott. Make them smaller.

Thank you, Gail! Thank you, Jerri!
After a couple of months of extensive research into 613, 618 and 118 models, I've finally received my horsehide devil!

I didn't think I'll get the horsehide. I though about saving one hundred bucks.

But... In the meantime I got a couple of cheap second hand Perfectos (70' 613 and one 418) just to have something to try on and measure before I commit to buy a newer jacket I could wear. One thing I noticed with those two that made me reconsider my initial idea of buying a second hand Perfecto. They do take shape of their initial wearers! It may not be a problem for you, but it was certainly a problem for me. My arms are a bit longer than normal and both those s/h jackets had their elbows stretched just a bit above my own elbow, which made the sleeves move a lot and leaving a bump right above my elbow. I then decided against getting a s/h jacket and buying a new one instead. Still, it was supposed to be a cowhide. It became horsehide just because Gail and Jerri were so amazingly patient with me, that I did decide to get it! Everything good you have ever heard about their service is in my experience true.

The other reasons the horsehide didn't grab me at first was because I thought it looked too shiny and read a lot about how long it takes to break it in.

Although the jacket certainly does posses some sheen, it is far from that ugly plastic-looking-leather kind of sheen. It just sort of makes the jacket look a bit more passers by friendly, if that makes sense :)

It does squeak when taken straight out of the box. It also squeaks less after only a few hours, so if you think it's something you wouldn't be comfortable in public about, it may be a good idea to wear it around the house for a couple or so days just to rub that sound off of her. When brand new, it squeaks so that people could probably hear you in a quiet cinema. Probably.

It is incredibly well made, it was shipped incredibly fast. You all know this... It was in Melbourne on Thursday. Shipped on Monday.

Now, although I measure 6"2', 153-158lbs, chest size 36.5'-37', I got it in size 38 and I'm very happy about it. It fits snug and I mean it. It is still not small! I can zip it, I can still breathe and stuff. But, if I lived somewhere else where the weather is cooler and I need to wear a sweater or something like that, I'd get me a number 40. I can still wear this one with something more substantial underneath though. The way I wear it with a shirt or a T-shirt, 40 would be too loose. Sleeves are exactly on my wrist.

I can see why Schott suggests one size larger on these. If I rode a bike, it would make sense. I don't ride a bike, I don't have a gut, so when I tighten my 38 in the first hole on the belt, the way it looks, that's all I need from a jacket.

Did I say I'm extremely pleased with the jacket, with the whole idea of it being manufactured in America and with the Schott's customer service. Well, I am.

Thank you very, very much!

Everything you expect from Schott! Great fit and finish. This classic jacket is a great value. My wife is having second thoughts about letting me wear it without her, guess she is afraid of the chick magnet appeal of the perfecto. Awesome product great service.

I love that funky shit!
Today I got my first Perfecto HH and it is just perfect. I love not only the jacket - I love the customer service, the US quality of horse leather and the style. It is a legend. Looks great with 1955 Levis 501 jeans, Red Wing Engineer shoes, Schiesser t-shirt Franz and a NY base cap! All the best from Berlin, Germany!

Incredibly fast delivery! Only 5 days after ordering the jacket, I had it at home. And I live in Norway.
Schott's reputation is true. Great leather, great work. As recomended I ordered it one size larger and it fits like a glove. Now I just have to break it in and make it mine!
