question about snap button...

Hello Schott, I recently got a Schott leather jacket. I love the leather.

I notice the snap button on the collar makes a little jiggle sound most of the time when I walk (when it's unsnapped). The little metallic ring inside the button is what makes the sound. Is this supposed to be normal for this kind of jacket, or do I just have one that jiggles? Thanks.

To be honest no one has ever asked that question before and to be honest  I do not know. Can someone who has a jacket with the collar snaps help answer, does the snap make a jingle sound when not snapped? gail

No worries. The snaps on the collar of my jacket have a nice rattle if they're not snapped. I think my Schott looks great and sounds great, too.

Oh, okay, so it seems like it's a normal thing that is part of the jacket. I think I noticed it because I've been doing a lot of walking and less riding...... Anyone else have any thoughts/comments to contribute on this?

I own two perfecto jackets (618 and 626) and they both make the "jiggly" sound you're referring to when buttons are unlocked.  It's normal.

I just randomly got on this page and do not own this specific jacket bran; however, i have similar issue - this rattling/jiggling sound of the snap buttons (when unsnapped) on a different premium coat/parka brand and honestly also find this a bit annoying / irritating. It depends on a person maybe, but quality clothes should have quality throughout the entire item and "feel like quality-made". I am pretty sure noone would want smth to jingle or rattle on your new meecedes benz or porsche so same goes for clothes.

My belt buckles on my 613-618 also make an annoying jingling sound when I wear my jackets unbuckled !!

I guess metal snaps can and do make a sound, but most people do not even notice the sound. Kind of like when you start that Benz or Porsche you here the engine, or turn on the wipers there is a sound, which we do not really hear when driving, it's just a normal sound of the car. Somethings are just norm for an item, which seems to be metal snaps and yes hanging unbuckled buckles,  possibly a cheaper plastic snap would not make this noise. Actually our snaps are made in the USA and are made to a military spec for a snap, so the quality of the snap is of higher quality. Possibly the sound of this rattling/jingling to you is like someone making a scratching sound across a chalk board. What is annoying to one person is not to someone else, possibly your best option since this is annoying to you is avoid purchasing jackets with snaps. Now I have to listen more closely when I wear one of my jackets to see if I hear the snaps making a noise. Since you own a premium parka not a Schott jacket which also has this problem, it appears the problem is not unique or a use of a lesser quality snap is the cause.

pour candle wax into where the rings sit to keep them fused in place while still allowing them to fully an functionally snap the button in place. Did this for my cenior year jacket and worked like a charm.

The question is so delicate, I have already tried a lot in my practice snaps. But as practice shows, I stopped at the Snap Fastener Kit. I am engaged in small leather orders. Everything fits me. Are there any other options.
