Classic B-3 Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket

STYLE: 257S

(61)
This B-3 is the classic WWII sheepskin leather "Bomber" jacket.

COLOR

    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!

    GREAT JACKET

    Published: Mon, 3/21/2022 by KT

    Great jacket, fit and finish are excellent. Followed the sizing guidance based on height, weight and measurements but found the jacket to be a bit small. Customer service was great with free shipping to return for a larger size. I know it can be tempting to buy a no-name B3 style jacket, but you really do get what you pay for. I expect to get many (very warm) years of use from this.

    My only complaint is with the color of the fur. I would consider the photos to be a darker ginger color, however both jackets I received had a much lighter color - I would call it honey. For how much these cost, it sucks that the color isn't as dark as in the photos, but the super high quality of the coat makes it worth keeping. I'd probably knock off half a star for the color. Would absolutely buy it again, but would likely go with the lighter cream color.

    GREAT JACKET!

    The jacket is awesome. Looks great and is very warm. (As noted by others, the jacket gets a lot of compliments.) Given how warm the jacket is, I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on as it did not feel too heavy. I initially ordered the 38 and exchanged it for a 36. (For sizing, I am 5' 9' about 160lbs with 38/39 chest and 31/32 waist. I thought the 38 was just a little too big. The 36 fits well. While I may not be able to wear a thick sweater, I can definitely layer under the jacket if I want to.)

    This B3 looks and feels like it was transported from 1943. It is a beautiful, warm jacket. Worth every dollar.

    AWESOME

    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!

    BAD ASS PIECE OF OUTERWEAR!

    Published: Thu, 2/4/2021 by JB

    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 :)
