Brown Perfecto 618? Any thought?

I have many leather jackets including 3 Schotts and one of them 618, all of which are black. I have come up with a new question if I want to get a brown version of 618 partly because it is not so brown.

Some questions would be:

Would you buy a brown, if so why? if not, why?

Would brown be any different from black in terms of leather? 


Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts!

I have a 618 and wish it was the brown 613 in the recent thread "Authenticity Check for Schott One Star Jacket". Even though I own about eighteen black jackets to four brown ones, black has always seemed a bit showy for me. I don't like to be noticed and I reckon a dark brown jacket helps keep things a little more inconspicuous out in public.

I also think the brown 613 perfecto has a more old-fashioned down to earth honest look that looks less out of place in a non-bike environment.

Must have brass hardware

Thanks! Well I thought about and slept on it, will just pass that. If you are interested, there's a neat 618 in brown on eBay ending in about an hour. I think there are people betting thinking it's black haha. It's really dark brown, which I have many on my shoes, like oxblood. I do not find much justification on top though, bombers maybe. Cheers!

Can't justify it? So you don't own any brown belts or shoes? All leather should match as close as possible. When I wear black shoes I wear my black belt and my black 641HH. I'm getting a 618 in brown this month to have a riding jacket to wear with the same boots in brown and the same belt in brown. I also own two of the exact same leather cowbot hat; one black and one brown. 

This isn't OCD or being a snob this is just basic not looking like a jackass or a moron.


Get a brown leather jaclet. You need it.

Just bought on EBay a New Brown 618 in size 50. Don't Ride though the Brown Leather was more a Fashion Look.
