Another one for Gail...

Hi Gail / Others who may know, I am hoping you would be so kind as to help me with a query... I've got what I think is a Schott jacket, because of the general feel and quality of it, but it looks like it's been relined, and there is no product lot / number or tag. Would you be able to tell me what make of Jacket this is? If it is indeed a real Schott (as far as you can tell that is) Or what photo/info you might need to verify it? I'd really appreciate it! Simon

The jacket is either a style 620 in Steerhide leather or a Style 520 in a Soft Steerhide. The jacket was produced with a heavy nylon lining and a detachable pile collar. The style 620 was produced from 1978 - 1981 and again in 1984. In 1982 & 1983 the jacket was produced in the soft steerhide style #520. The lining in the jacket is the original lining the back snap that you can see at the neck of the lining is to accommodate the detachable collar. Gail

Great looking jacket. Wish they still made this only in HH.

I just bought one of these, a 520, size 42, on ebay, in near mint condition and want the nylon fur or mouton collar for it.  Is that still available?  If not, would a 618 collar work?

Gail on 01/27/15 at 08:55 AM

The 618M collar may or may not fit. You can try the stock collar and if it does not fit you can return the collar and send the jacket into us to have a collar made for the jacket. If you check the collar 618M on our site you will see the styles we list that the collar will fit, on older jackets we just can not confirm, as we no longer have the pattern specs on these jackets. If you need to have a collar made you can contact Jerri in customer service and she can help you with pricing and instructions to send the jacket into us. I have listed her email below.

Gail:  Thanks for this info. The latest: I found a 618 size 42 collar and it fits OK.  The only thing is that there is there is no center snap receptacle under the outer leather jacket collar. 

Should there be one?

 It looks ok.

I understand these were often worn with a basketweave duty belt.  Can you recommend one?

Gail on 01/27/15 at 09:25 AM

I am not sure where you can purchase the basketweave belt. When we purchased this type of belt for the James Dean Limited edition jackets they were called the "Sam Brown" belts. Possibly on the web you can find the belt, be sure to measure the length you need correctly as a belt size for a jacket is much different then a belt for pants.

Yes.  I wear a 32 waist pants but measured 1" aroung the bottom of the jacket, and it fits around my waist at the hips just fine.  I will look for a vintage one to match the jacket.  Thanks for your help.

RE the collar:  is there supposed to be a snap receptacle for the fur collar on the outside, back-center of the jacket?

filfoster on 01/27/15 at 10:24 AM

Last question, and I appreciate the time you've given me on this so far:

RE the collar: is there supposed to be a snap receptacle for the fur collar on the outside, back-center of the jacket? There is just a button that is the back of the internal center snap.

Gail on 01/27/15 at 10:49 AM

If you look at the photos above there is a snap in the back, possibly the style 520 did not. I honestly can not remember and I no longer have the exact specs for the jacket. The belt for the jacket will have to be several inches larger then the circumference of the jacket. I would suggest you wear the jacket to a store and try on larger belt sizes until you have the correct size needed for the jacket.

FYI,  mine has a tag in the left hand pocket that looks like this:

                    Lot                         BNDL

                   1537                        003

                                     520

                                      42

 

The lining is the same but the Schott tag doesn't say 'Perfecto' but just 'Schott' and 'Sportswear'.  The flag size tag looks the same.

Yes, The jacket is a Schott jacket, but it is a jacket we made to offer at a lesser cost to the customer. The jacket is the style #520 in a pebbled cowhide which is a correctd grain leather. Our Steerhide and Naked cowhide jackets are Grade A & B hides which means they are very clean. The corrected cowhide leather is the same leather but a lesser grade and the scars and tick marks have been hidden with a print on the hide. Our steerhide and naked cowhide jackets in M/C styles will have the Perfecto label, jackets that were made to offer at a lesser cost had the Schott Sportswear label. The tag in your pocket confirms the style number.
