I love this jacket. I have been riding for 40 years and never had a Perfecto. Just cheap no name leather that surely protected me but fit terribly. This 619 fits like a glove. The leather feels sturdy but not heavy and I can wear it on a hot day without getting overheated. Wish I wouldn't have waited so long to get one. I care more about function than form but people say it looks great too.
This is a smooth Jacket, easy to wear almost no break in time, & the gold hard were is so “awesome”
I’m 5’10, 162 pounds. 33 waist, 41 chest slim runners body, I were a Small on all my Schott leather Jackets, that’s what works for me.
Any questions call Schott there more then happy to help you find the jacket that works best for you & you’re body.
I hope this helps you.
Beautiful. I have the 626 and love it, good sale price recently for 619 and jumped on it. Received today and fits great similar to 626 (626 is slightly more snug and feels slightly thicker). Leather on 619 is a little more stiff which is nice. Looks amazing, feels great, hardware is nice and i see what others have said about buckle, its not bad i dont expect to kill any bears with it. Im 6ft 215lbs 44 chest 36 jeans, large jacket, fits comfortably close. Yes its summer in Florida and i bought my 3rd schott.. Im silly like that, cant help myself.
This beauty is the second Schott jacket that I have bought in 9 months. The quality of the leather, the lining and the hardware are superb. It’s described as lightweight but it’s heavier than I expected and that’s a good thing. The only gripes: the belt buckle feels very flimsy, almost plastic although I am sure it’s not and the zipper pulls for the pockets are very small and could use either a larger pull tab or a leather extension to make the job easier. I am 6” 1” and a 42 was recommended. I choose my gut and went with the 44. No regrets there.
This jacket gets lots of attention and at 60 years of age, all those that know me say the brown is a perfect combination of class and beauty. Unlike myself.
I bought this gorgeous brown 619 Perfecto the same week I had already purchased a brand new, brown Schott 626 Perfecto. They sound like they should be almost identical brown leather motorcycle jackets with asymmetrical front zippers, epaulets and half belts, so why did I get both? I certainly didn’t need both. I just wanted them, plus I got good deals on both — which is unusual for Schott jackets. The reason I kept both is because the leather on each jacket is different enough that you really won’t get confused. Both are considered lightweight cowhides but the finishing process is very different. The 626 has a mottled, medium brown appearance while this one has more of a uniform, dark brown, oil-tanned finish. If you push your finger into the leather of this 619 from the inside, the coloration turns pale and this moves with your finger, but it doesn’t leave a permanent change in the appearance.
This 619 is not only great looking, with the shiny brass zippers, snaps, and buckle (as opposed to the 626 with the black hardware) but it also fits extremely well — almost exactly like the slim-fit 626. At 6’0”, 225 lbs with a 46” chest, 35” waist, and a weightlifter’s (aging) physique, Schott’s Fit Guide recommended a size XL, but I have learned that Schott jackets run tight across the chest, shoulders and upper arms, so if you are thicker in those areas you should size up. I bought both jackets (and several other Schotts) in size 2XL (or 48, if the numbered size are available).
One feature I particularly like is that the buckle on the half-belt of this 619 (as well as that of the 626) has a female snap that secures it to a male snap on the body of the jacket. This keeps the buckle from flopping around when not being used and scratching your gas tank. I wish all Schott Perfectos with half-belts had this feature, because my 118, 618HH and 613 do not.
I highly recommend this 619 if you want something other than the three “B”s (Basic Biker Black).
Been eyeing this jacket for years but the price kept me holding off. I randomly came across the jacket again on sale and just decided to just hit the BUY button without overthinking. Totally worth it. The fit. The color hue of the brown. The quality of the leather. The craftsmanship. I love everything about it.
Schott Jacket #10. I can't describe how exciting it is to see that Schott box by the front door. Or how exciting it is to open that box and pull out a bran new Schott leather jacket. That being said, this jacket is another work of art. The leather is absolutely beautiful, and the more you wear it the better it will get. The brass hardware is a perfect match with the look of the leather. Even the lining has an amazing look. The leather, stitching, and hardware are all of high quality. It is a perfect fit and so comfortable. The zippers operate smoothly. When you throw this on, it screams open road. It literally takes you to a perfect spring day on your favorite Harley. I can't wait to wear this on my next road trip and adventure. Thanks again to the Schott team for another masterpiece.
The awesomeness of this jacket is beyond words. Worth every penny I spent. Please do not be tempted to make them in some other countries.
I was initially skeptical about buying a brown motorcycle jacket (a typically black leather type); however, after a week of use, it is nothing short of a classy, timeless piece. Sizing was perfect with a comfortable, snug fit, without the annoyance of being too large. It is a beautiful, elegant color all around the jacket, to which pictures do not do it justice. If you are looking to break the barrier of a generic black leather jacket, this model offers all the fantastic perks with a style that will turn heads.
This jacket was everything I expected and more, the fitting was spot on. The color is beautiful, I am sure that I will get many years of service and pleasure . I feel like I am wearing a pice of art. Thanks
