Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket



Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket


This B-3 is the classic WWII sheepskin leather "Bomber" jacket.


    B-17s and B-24s were not pressurized and the unheated cabins got awfully cold at altitude. This sheepskin jacket kept our bomber crews warm during their perilous missions in the skies over Europe.

    The B-3 bomber jacket is clearly a winner in both warmth and style. Even non-aviators like Gen. George Patton chose to wear a specially-modified version of the B-3 (instead of the standard tanker's jacket). You too can rely on this classic heavyweight shearling to keep you warm on the coldest winter day, and you can count on its enduring style to survive the fickle trends of fashion!

    This is a fantastic jacket to wear during the winter and snow days! I always loved the look of it and when it came in the mail only one day after ordering it, I was very surprised by the speed of the delivery!

    The few things I would knit pick over though for such an expensive jacket at this price would be no inside pockets to store my wallet or anything small that I'd like to be in a pocket. Another thing would be the neck I feel like when I'm using it for support while I'm driving it's very rough. It could be me, but sometimes I feel like my necks lying on a rock when I'm driving or in general looking up.

    I have to say Schott has the best quality ever!!!!! I have this in the brown color way and I wear a size 32 and when I say I turned so many heads with this coat I feel like a celebrity with this coat on. I love it so much and it keeps you warm regardless of how cold it is. Definitely recommend rocking this coat with the iconic 40 Below timberland boots for that urban New York look. Thank me later

    This is an amazing jacket. I caught a deal on it from one of Schott’s retail partners. I wasn’t sure I should order it because, due to the discount I received, it was not returnable. But I am so glad that I bought it. This 257S is think and plush. Great for Midwest winters. I grabbed the brown/white combo, and it looks just like the jackets our World War II heroes wore. I am 6 ft, 205lbs, and the XL fits me well. Highest recommendation to anyone curious about this jacket. A real investment piece that will only get better with age. Well done Schott!

    I own a ton of leather and shearling jackets including from some high end Italian designers that could several time what Schott's shearling coat does. But this hands down the warmest of all my shearlings and it never fails to turn heads. Wearing a shearling jacket is not only functional but a strong, confident fashion statement and you truly can't find a better one. It doesn't hurt that is sells for much less than many "luxury" brand whose jackets are great but not as rugged as this one. I have this in 3 colors and would wear in bright orange if they had one. I would still out style 99% of the guys out there and you can too.

    At first I know about Schott NYC is from Resident Evil 4, I got myself Schott's B3 jacket the end of 2023 and I do not regret it, Vancouver usually won't be too cold, however, when the temperature drops down below 0 degree, this jacket will definitely be the one you need for a chilly day. I am 183 cm and 90 kg size 44 is perfect for me.

    My 257S B3 Bomber Jacket is wonderful re: style and quality, exactly as I expected. I remain a big Schott fan.

    I'm 6' 1" tall; I weigh 195 lbs, and I have a 43" chest. I have a 740 Pea Coat in 42 Long that fits like it was custom made for me and a 141 Classic Racer in 44 Long that fits similarly well with the plush liner in but is a little roomy without the liner. I ordered my 257S in 42, and it is long enough and fits well, especially with light clothing underneath. I might have preferred a 42 Long if it was offered. A 44 would have been too roomy for me in this style.

    Number 1) The B3 Bomber jacket for my son’s Christmas: a work of art and beauty. A lifetime treasure..
    Number 2) The new Moto leather Perfecto for me, the octogenarian! Gorgeous jacket! Now, I have to exchange it for a Large because of my weight gain. So I’m not the shape I used to be. I can’t wait to make the exchange as soon as I return from visiting my daughter in Texas.. I’m going to love it and the lift it will give me!
    Well, I gotta tell you; I’ve purchased 11 Schott jackets: 4 for me 2 for my son, 2 for my daughter, 1 for each of my 3 grandchildren .
    Surely I qualify for the Schott Brothers Elderly Customer Hall of Fame!!
    Get yourself one of these many treasures while they’re still available!!

    Got this jacket from Schott yesterday afternoon December 12, 2023… Please note: I ordered it on December 10 and I live in Canada, Richmond Hill, Ontario - - what a speedy delivery ! Never experienced such a care for customer before.
    Once I got package I opened it and I was in shock! Amazing bomber jacket, perfect fit, perfect style, such a wonderful piece of work - whoever did it is a master… my eyes are full of stars when I look at the mirror wearing it, feeling it, owning it to forever.
    This is my second jacket from Schott, and it is almost identical twin with the first one which I bought 34 years ago in 1989, however, this one is special as for the quality and make craft which is so unique… This size 54 fits me so perfect as for the man who is 6' 4" and full of muscles and life - to add I am 68 years old and as wearing it I look like Forever Young.
    Simply put - I am living dream… thank you!

    SIZING 177CM (5.9), 70KG(155), 98-99CM CHEST(38-39)

    I will not write about the quality, as I think that everyone knows its there - you can see it and feel it - the jacket is impresive.
    I want to help out anyone struggling with the size with similar body composition as me - as I struggled to choose the right one - I'm from Poland so I had no opportunity to try on the jacket.
    I'm 177cm (5.9), 70kg(155), 98-99cm chest(38-39). I have a "fit" build - flat belly(28-29inch), with a bit of muscles, a bit broader shoulders - but I'm not a muscle mass monster :)
    When I was searching for the jacket I was aiming to have a "standard" fit - not to tight, not to roomy - just right. Also I wanted to have space for a thin sweater or hoodie or a standard flannel shirt (not flannel jacket).
    I got a 38 - and in a t-shirt it fits great. In a hoodie or a flannel shirt its "tighter" but not too "cramped" - I can still move in it just fine, put my arms up and I don't look like a sausage. You can feel the back stretching/pulling a bit when I layer but not much - I just got it, so I guess it's going to be better after the break in period.
    Hope this helps!

    Love wearing this jacket on colder days on the motorcycle! Read many reviews and it was definitely a good idea to size down for a slimmer fit.
