    About this leather: Our naked cowhide leather is a premium top grain cowhide that combines comfort and durability. The leather boasts a naturally tight open pore structure that ensures a softer touch and superior comfort. Its weight and warmth are on par with deluxe heavy steerhide. The full aniline, drum dyed process preserves the leather’s texture, enhancing its natural grain with a subtle, semi-matte finish. It is then vacuum dried (instead of toggle dried) that leads to a slightly stiffer result as the fibers are not stretched and softened. The leather is designed to age gracefully and expand its characteristics over time.

    Stiffness: Medium

    Very high quality! Varm jacket, perfect for people who sit in cars much. Choose one size bigger for comfort.

    I was scrolling pages for days to find a jacket worth every penny. Finally found one in Dark Brown, got my hands on it (Size 52) within a week here in New Delhi, India. The best part,
    1. There's always some room left for layering.
    2. The arms are pretty mobile because of the gussets at the back. So the Jacket doesn't shift while riding a bike or driving a car.
    Best purchase ever. Ordered the Naval Peacoat and waiting to get my hands on that!

    Only my 2nd or 3rd leather jacket in 82 years of life. Gave my last (and rarely worn) one to my granddaughter. After much research, and debating whether an elderly man could wear a leather jacket, decided to visit the Schott store in NYC. A great and fun experience. Tried on several jackets and with my wife's help, picked this one. I liked the idea that the collar and lining could come out, which means it can be worn in a wider range of temperatures. The knit wristband and cuffs were also a plus for me. The jacket is heavy, but less so with the collar and lining out. The leather will need some breaking in. I'm not so sure it's a city jacket, so will mostly use it when we are at our suburban home in NJ. Also bought a corduroy jacket to wear in NYC.

    SCHOTT 184 SM

    Schott does it again, amazing jacket. Just received my 184 SM today (2/3/23) in black and this thing is absolutely gorgeous!! The leather is heavy but soft and very pliable. I am 5'11", 215 lbs and the size calculator recommended size 46. That is what I ordered and it fits perfectly. I am a huge fan of Schott leather jackets and have a closet full of them. However, none of them are made for cold weather or have pile liners. So I saw the 184 with the zip out liner and it fits exactly what I was looking for. I have to admit that I'm not too crazy about the detachable fur collar but it is well made like the jacket and could come in handy some time. Bottom line, this jacket is a work-of-art and I love it!

    The A2 naked flight jacket is incredibly well made. It is serious quality and big cut above anything else I've seen in a flight jacket. Customer service is A1 as well; I ordered wrong size and it was exchanged in 2 days, free both ways. Will order from Schott again!

    Great company and great coat, I wish it didn’t have the two tabs on shoulders but could ask for better service. Amazing!

    I used to own a black bomber jacket with black fur and lining way back in the '80's. I found this jacket and it is amazing. The jacket is everything I hoped it would be plus more!. First, finding black bombers was difficult. Brown is all over, but I prefer black. So, when I saw this I was thrilled. The leather is softer than I imagined, and the collar is extremely plush and soft. The zippers are not flimsy, but strong which is needed for this jacket. It's constructed very well, and has weight to it. It's not a light flimsy jacket. The fit is perfect. Overall the quality is top notch, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a durable, good looking quality leather jacket that will last a long time.

    Just like the A2 I bought from you over 10 years ago. The jacket Looked and felt like my old friend from 10 years ago... except a little more stiff but with care and time it will loosen up be as comfortable as my old friend, less the wear spots. Keep up the traditions. Love my new jacket.
