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!

    I ordered this before going to the very North of Japan. Turned up spot on, superb. Size was awesome. Product itself, even better.
    I wore it on the first day with a t-shirt underneath - it was -12c. I then made any excuse I could think of to wear it every day, even when it warmed up a lot !
    First class delivery and even better product ! I have 3 Schott jackets now. Not sure that’s enough ……

    I'm very happy with my purchase. The jacket is very beautiful, the size is perfect (my chest size is 32 and size 32 fits me like a glove) and the delivery was super fast (I live in France and received my order in less than two days).
    I wish to thank the whole team for this great shopping experience : the production team, of course, for making this high-quality piece but also the commercial team for his responsiveness and his seriousness.

    The jacket is very, very warm. I live in Canada, with winters reaching -35 degrees Celsius. With just a jumper and this jacket, I can't even feel the cold.

    That being said, I've had some issues. The fur on the cuff was sent to me bald in some places. I noticed the stitching is loose in areas as well.

    Schott allows you to send the jacket to be replaced, but because I live outside of the USA, I did not want to deal with the shipping fiasco and any additional costs associated with this near 2,000CAD jacket.

    I hope that these small issues don't turn into something bigger over time. But as of now (about 6 months in), the jacket has served me well. By far the most compliments I've ever received for a piece of clothing.

    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.

    This jacket is extraordinary in every way. Absolutely perfect for the cold winters of Maine, could not be more comfortable. And I probably receive compliments on it 8/10 times I go out wearing it. I have a decent collection of fashionable jackets, but this out does them all. Might move to Alaska just so I can wear it year round.

    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.
