Need new main zip

Hello I am in the UK and am on my second Schott; it's a 10 year old 641 size 44 and the main zipper has broken. (I have ID'd it as a 641 because it's identical to the jacket in this post:) I cannot find anyone who can repair it in the UK to the original standard; they all offer sub-standard looking zips to replace the original. Is it possible to buy the exact same zip from Schott, and then I can get someone here in UK to fit it? Or do you have details of people in the UK who repair Schott jacket zips to the proper standard? Thank you for any answer.

No Schott people able to tell me whether the main zip is available as a part to order? Or is it that it's a generic zip that I should be able to get anywhere?

It appears there's no one from Schott who cares enough to answer. Is there anyone at all on this forum who's managed to buy a zip from Schott?

I spoke to gail at the warehouse sale on saturday about some repairs for my jacket and she said that they were too busy right now with custom orders to do repair work and to get back to them after the holiday season, that is probably why you have been unsuccessful in reaching anyone. good luck in getting the repairs and enjoy the jacket

I have a similar enquiry, i would like to buy a couple of snap buttons with the schott logo embossed on it, also, it'd be great to buy extra schott zips just in case. but this kind of heavy duty motorcycle zippers are supposed to be tough, what kind of manhandling was applied to break one?

Hi! I have a 118 Perfecto jacket and it is quite new. One of its side pockets (right side pocket) small zip hook fell off. The zipp is still closing though. Will this still be ok or do I need a new zip? Where can I get new one? Do you at Schott have them to send to your customers? Thank you!

I see you are in London, so the option to sending your jacket into us for a repair is not an option. We can send you a new zipper though and you can have the repair done by a tailor need you. If you look at the chain pull pocket pull you will see the chain pull is one solid chain and not removeable from the slider part of the zipper, which means the complete zipper needs to be replaced. You can contact Jerri in our customer service and she can help you in getting a replacement zipper for your jacket. I have listed her direct email address below.

I also asked Jerri for replacement parts, she answered 3 weeks later, she is very busy atm.

Gail on 10/04/17 at 06:51 AM
