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.

    CREDIT: -$0.00

    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!

    I bought this iconic Schott B3 sheepskin jacket in ebony a few years back and it’s quality, reliability,durability impressed me so much during the harshest coldest Canadian winters that i had to get it in the brown/white color this time around! I simply can’t say enough good about Schott, truly.. All the way from my two 618 perfectos, my short and longer peacoats to theses B3 jackets, i couldn’t and wouldn’t have it any other way!

    First of all, what a great jacket! The quality is really amazing. This jacket can really take a beating and keeps you warm in a winter blizzard.

    The fur of the jacket is more yellow than i was expecting, but i guess this does vary from jacket to jacket. But then you dont have to worry so much for getting it dirty and miscoloured. I bought the regular brown version.

    A real bad ass jacket that will turn heads and get noticed. Im really happy with it. I guess i dont have to worry about freezing ever again!

    Im 6’2 and have a slim body and size 36 is perfect. I was a bit worried that it would be to short, but its not. Schott customer service know what they are talking about :)

    And super quick delivery as well, Im very happy :)

    ok fit, the fleece is very good. Jacket is warm. I live in MN. I rated the jacket only a two because of the finish of the leather. It came with scuffs and scratches all over. I called customer service and their comment was that is how the jacket should look. My old bomber jacket which I wore for 30 years still looks better than this new one. Reason for buying a new one was that the fleece was wearing out an I had ripped the leather in one spot.

    This jacket just exudes style. I hate to take it off once I’ve put it on, it’s like wearing fur lined armour. Material and Construction are superb. I made one woeful error in not heeding the advice of others before me that suggested ordering a size smaller than your regular measurements. Had to send the first jacket back as it was 2 inches too big everywhere (sleeves, shoulders, waist, drape). But now I have a size 46 that is a perfectly sublime fit.

    I have truly been a "Schott roll" over the last few weeks,...first with the Hand Painted Rough Rider followed by the B-3 Bomber in Brown/Gold. I must admit one hell of a way to start! Even "WOW" cannot describe the quality and workmanship of these iconic jackets! At 5'9" and 165 lbs. with fairly broad shoulders, I am an L in the Rough Rider and 40 in the B-3...true to size fit for both. Very proud to wear these made in the USA jackets, with my only question being what is my next Schott jacket! Any recommendations welcome...Phil.

    1st off let me just say that this Jacket runs big so I would order it a size down. Also this jacket is very very warm, so if the climate where you live doesn’t get below freezing very often, you might not get to wear this much. It’s extremely well made & heavy duty. This is the type of jacket your grandkids will be wearing one day. The zipper on it is very thick & overall it’s just well put together. If it got colder more frequently in Delaware I would’ve just exchanged it for a 46 in lieu of the 48 that I ordered which was too big but i unfortunately ended up having to exchange the jacket for something more practical.

    I've wanted the B3 from Schott for a while and finally pulled the trigger. I couldn't be happier! I am 5'10" 165 pounds 42" chest, and I ordered a 38 & a 40. The 38 gave a really nice slim fit, but I ended up keeping the 40 so that I can wear layers under if I choose. The leather is beautiful, and the shearling is super comfortable and warm. It has been windy and in the 30's the last few days in the Chicago suburbs, and I kept super warm walking the dog. The quality is top notch and I see myself wearing this coat for years to come.

    This jacket is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever purchased! I purchased the brown one with white fur (looks more yellow which I prefer). The jacket is extremely warm and is windproof even when not zipped up. When zipped up, no cold could penetrate this jacket. Despite weighing five pounds, the jacket does not feel that heavy when worn. It is definitely still on the stiffer side right now, but it will be broken in with more use. Everything feels extremely durable on here too; the waist adjustments and belted collar are both very solid. If you are looking for a slimmer fit on this jacket, SIZE DOWN. I bought this in a size 38. For reference, I'm 5'8, have a 38 chest, and weigh about 160 pounds. The jacket fits well, but there is definitely some extra room. I probably would have ordered a 36, but the 38 is still great. The arms are on the bigger side as well, but the sleeve length is perfect. I would like to add that when I purchased this, a thread was coming out of the cuff. I contacted a Schott representative and they told me that someone most likely just forgot to cut the thread during the sewing process; since then, I cut the thread and everything has been good. This jacket is extremely stylish and practical (and makes me feel like Leon Kennedy!) so it is definitely worth the money. It is my first real leather jacket and Schott has done a great job with it. I am already eyeing other Schott jackets, If you're looking for a winter jacket, buy this!
