That's a nice jacket mtds! That new leather smell is really something :) I'm
glad to see that the chain pulls are back again.

I know exactly how you feel. As a matter of fact, everyone who owns Perfecto
feels the same! :) When I ordered my 618, I had to wait more than a month to
arrive. To avoid huge duties and taxes I ordered it to my friend in USA. He
got the jacket in a few days, but I had to wait another month for him
to come to Europe... But it was worth waiting!
You got yourself an awsome jacket, one of a kind!
Enjoy wearing it!

Details of the new snap-down belt buckle in this post. This new feature
is fine with me; I will always know where the buckle is when I reach for it, and
it eliminates even the possibility of dinging my bike's finish.
Note the position of the buckle when it is snapped down. Since my
middle-aged waist almost fills the jacket, I have no problem with uneven
bunching of material when I tighten the belt. Overall, it seems like a
useful change to this customer.

Two inside pockets on this new jacket. I just sold an early
90's Perfecto 118 in 48L and it had only one patch pocket, located on
the lower left. I was happy to see the additional breast pocket on the
left. It is eight inches deep, and neatly lined with leather and dark

Tags and labels today.
It came with three hangtags attached to the left sleeve as
There are a total of five labels: Two sewn down at the back of the neck, one
flap-sewn inside the coin pocket, and two flap-sewn to the inside seam on
the right above the waist.
Does anyone know what the "1867609006" on the coin pocket label

This is the bar code number of your jacket. The first 4 numbers represents
the lot # for the production of the jacket and the 5th. number represents the
year it was produced ie 2006. The other numbers represent the bucket number
for the size and sequence numbers for internal use. Gail

I received my Schott 651 today, IN THE UK!!! wow!!
this is very very different from the current production harley jackets!!!!
man it hought harley skin is tough and proffesional, but this is totally different, the leather is thicker and feels oilly on the outside (positive way, feels warm), second, it's smooth, no grain.
it's a bit stiff, but i know it's gonna wear in and soften.
in fact, the leather itself is so strong i am worried the stitch works, the threads etc won't hold!!! will they?
i wanted to load photos, but my attachment function wouldn't work, help!!

I am happy to hear you are please with your purchase and impressed with the
jacket. In reference to the thread, we use the highest quality in strength
thread for our jackets. You will have no problem with the thread not holding,
our jackets are made to last many years. Gail
