Wonderful feel to leather
Fit was perfect
Detachable collar a very nice feature
If it had a 1-piece back, I'd buy this in a second. If it had a 2-piece back like the old 674, I'd buy it in maybe 2 seconds. But a flight jacket with 3 back panels and a seam running up the middle? No thanks, not a chance. Strictly Banana Republic territory. (Schott is suddenly doing this a lot lately.)
Response from Schott NYC: We read this and we respectfully disagree. There is a misconception that a one piece back is somehow "better". Sometimes some makers cut jackets into tiny panels to get a better yield on their leather or because the leather they use has a lot of damages. That is not what we are doing at all. We added a seam in the back to this jacket to give it more shape so the jacket looks more form fitted and slimmer. Otherwise there is no way to put shape into the back and it can look like you have bat wings. If you prefer a single piece back we offer this as style 184SM in the same exact leather with a large single back panel.
I love it
