be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
The jacket came pretty quick maybe less than fours days I believe. The quality is definitely in this jacket came nicely packaged and folded. I'm 5'10 & 155Lbs and I bought a medium it's hits that spot of not being to roomy and not being too tight. I wish they had a black one like this I'd definitely buy it.
I am a little bit of a (leather) jacket aficionado. When looking for a flight type of jacket, I found it hard to really make up my mind. Either they were too classic (bulky), to modern (still a flight jacket?), or too expensive. The so called slim fit of this 174s did spark my interest, but with no possibility to check it in person, I found it hard to pull the trigger.
Also, after previously having discovered the magic of veg tan leather, I was hesitant toward this jackets’ “naked cowhide” (which I believe is regular chrome tanned). Anyway, I decided to give it a go. The leather is actually fantastic on this kind of jacket! Thick, yet supple, but not overly so. (I have another Schott in waxy natural pebbled cowhide, that while beautiful, i find just too pliant.) It’s also flawless, 100% consistent all over in thickness and grain. Smell is good too. Compared to veg tan I d say, only thing that strikes me as ‘missing’ is the typical ‘creaking’ noise; this leather is basically silent.
5’11” 166lbs 40-1/2 inch chest went with M. Spot on for a slimmer fit.
I thought the shipping rates to Europe on the Schott website were on the expensive side, BUT within 2 days delivered, I must say it was amazingly fast and hassle free, so that makes it worth it.
This jacket is my 5th Schott jacket, and the replacement for the first one which I had purchased...30+ years ago!!!
I love the slimmed design, closer to the body. The fit is perfect (I am 5'11", 190 lbs wih large shoulders). The leather quality is impressive, without a single flaw. The bright satin lining is another delighter.
My 13 years old son is already talking about stealing this jacket as soon as he's tall enough to wear it!!
This is a classic jacket with a flattering fit -- broad at the shoulders tapering down to the waist. The workmanship is superb (fine sewing). I am 5'11" and 170 lbs, ordered an M and it fits perfectly. The sleeves are a bit long, but that's ok with me (if you ride a bike they would be perfect). It came from the US to Sydney in less than a week and was delivered promptly with no bull from the courier company. It's warm enough for winter here, but if I had a wish list, the only thing I'd wish for would be a zip-out liner for when I travel to colder climates. But all-in-all, I'm very happy with this jacket.
Response from Schott NYC: We didn't out the zip out liner in this style because it's a slim fit but we have a zip out liner in the same style in a more relaxed fit - style 184SM. That's the classic that we've been making for decades.
Wish they still produced this jacket in Size Small. Ordered a Medium to "try" and it was simply too big... BUT the jacket is absolutely beautiful. I was heartbroken when I had to send it back, I almost kept it even though it didnt fit me. If youre looking for a modern take on the G-1 and they still have your size, this one is definitely worth a look!
SCHOTT PLEASE MAKE THIS IN SIZE SMALL!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this as a 21st birthday present for my son. I’ve had the non-slim fit version for over 30 years now - still comfortable, still weather proof, & stylish enough to wear almost anywhere. Don’t use it much in the Australian summer, but live in it all winter.
The jacket arrived on time. Feels & smells fantastic. Looks like it’ll last at least 30 years.
I own a lot of leather jackets but this is my second Schott and when you open the box on a Schott jacket it's unlike any other jacket. The smell of the leather and the quality are in a class all by itself. The fit on this jacket is superb. I loses all the bagginess of the A2 and G1 bombers available from others. The leather is just plain sexy. The smell of the leather is sublime. This isn't a leather jacket, it's a Schott.
i love it ,for a 177/65 skinny asian sleeve could short 3cm would be perfect. Still love it. best jacket ever
Got mine and tried it for a few days before writing this review. I like it very much for its sturdy quality and workmanship (except for a minor imperfection, but is acceptable). The fit guide on the website is rather accurate. Also I like the slim fit of this jacket because it doesn't look bulky on my body of 5'9' and 190lb. I can say I'm 99% happy with this product but I'll give it a 5 star.
Wonderful feel to leather
Fit was perfect
Detachable collar a very nice feature
