Which Perfecto is the right one for me?

Gail, I'm 6'3 and have a size 44 chest. I really want the Perfecto 613 but don't know if that's the right one for me. I do want a star on each epaulette. I spoke to customer service and the woman said I might want a 118L but I know there is no star on the epaulettes. I would get them custom if I have too but the stars are important. I need some specific measurements on the two models Perfecto 613 size 44 and 118L size 44 chest. Can you please help me make the best choice so I can finally have the Schott Leather Jacket of my dreams. Thank You...

Just based on your height of 6' 3" you need a long size, the 613 will be too short on you. Customer service was correct you need the 118L, but this jacket does not have the stars. I do not get into measurements on the blog, if you want to contact me on sizing or having a custom jacket made and the cost you can fill out our custom form under the jacket style. Gail

Once I get the Perfecto 118L how or were do I get the star epaulettes that go on the Perfecto 613 so I can put them on with a soft hammer? How much are the two stars?

You can contact me by email for the stars, but I must advise you they are not easy to apply once the epaulet is made. Stars to the epaulets are applied before the epaulet top is swen to the bottom of the epaulet, meaning only the top piece of leather, attaching once sewn you not need to go through both sides. The stars are only light weight steel with prongs that can bend easily. Some customers have informed me they had to make the holes in the epaulet or each prong before they could attach. You may want to check the website selling trims, as I have seen stars with a stud in the middle that would be easier to apply. Gail

Thanks for getting back to to me. I got one last question. I know Schott is American made, I was wondering where Schott get's its cowhide from and from what type of cow?

The leather is US domestic heavy native steerhide finished in North America. Gail
