I have been eying this jacket, perusing the internet, watched video after video on this particular model, for about a year. I finally made said purchase, was holding off till it was decent enough outside to wear.
I purchased a size Small, my chest is around 36 inches, I’m 5’6, honestly it had too much room. I could zip up easily, the sleeves went past to about my knuckles. I just didn’t like the fit of the jacket. Yes I could wear a thick hoodie, flannel, you name it underneath, and still have plenty of room. That’s not what I was looking for. I want a second skin, hugs the body, go to leather jacket.
Well, I returned it for an XS and yes it was snug, it was hard to zip up, but it’s exactly what I wanted. I’ve read and have also been told that it’s important to size down, since leather does stretch. I will say that this may not apply to everyone. Don’t buy a jacket you just can’t fit at all.
After a few outings, even wearing this jacket around the house, I’ve noticed it’s loosen up, it’s getting easier to zip up. The arms have slightly more room, overall it’s feeling better and better. The sleeves I prefer in length as opposed to the small, though I will have them shorten, but not by much!
The leather is great, it’s soft but it’s not thin by any means. It feels broken in, yet there is still and will always be, more movement as you wear the garment.
It has it all, the quality build, the smell, the noise leather makes when you move. The slim fitting profile, the subtle qualities of a Cafe Racer. It’s clean, no bells and whistles, no “fashion” gimmicks, just tried and true. If you feel out of place in a double rider motorcycle jacket, then this is it, seriously, look no further.
I just received my brand new 530 in brown size large about an hour ago, perfect fit for me. For reference, I am 6'0', 190 lbs, 46.5 inch chest, 32 waist, athletic build and the large fits me like a glove. The leather is very soft, feels already broken in. I'm betting it will stretch just a little which is fine. Any bigger I would be swimming in it, any smaller and I would not be able to zip it up.
This is my first from Schott, it will not be my last.
The jacket is beautiful and well made. But it is too short in length and sleeves for a tall guy. I bought a size Large for him. In coats he is a 42L. He is 6’4”, 185 pounds, lean and clothes fit him easily usually. The jacket was tight in the chest.
I think this jacket might be ok for guys under 6’ tall. But he is thin, and it being tight in the chest was unusual.
Of course it was returned.
Very happy with the jacket. Excellent quality. Ordered from the UK and import duties/taxes + shipping added another $400, but still worth it
Before ordering I had a very nice live chat with Christine from the support team. She was very kind and helpful with the measuring as the automatic fit guide had not been shure between sizes S and M. I am 1,89 cm tall and 72 kg of weight, chest 95 cm. She recommended to order size S.
I ordered the jacket and it was delivered to Germany quickly. It fit well. Tailor made just the sleeves would have been 2 cm longer and the jacket back would have been 2-3 cm longer. But it was a factory made jacket and the short and slim cut looked cool.
Unfortunately the jacket had some abrasions on the front and on the back and I had to make an exchange (the only thing which should be improved is the inspection before shipping).
I emailed the support about my problem and Jerri from the support was a great help. She sent me a label and FedEx took the item from my home. Only two days later I got a new jacket which had been picked out by Jerri personally. Thanks again Jerri !
The jacket looks good, smells good and feels good. I love it.
6'2" 40" chest. Medium fits like a glove.
Heavy duty, built like a tank. I expect this jacket to last decades.
The flannel inside is nice... maybe a strange choice fashion wise but hey, no one sees it.
Looks awesome. Feels awesome. You get what you pay for.
I ordered in brown because I already have a black cafer racer jacket (the rev'it gibson jacket with full armor). I love both.
Schott -- you need to make this jacket with D3 armor inserts and I'll buy 2 more.
This was my very first leather jacket and it fits perfectly. I’m 5’10 155 lbs. The Schott customer service verified my size and we’re a pleasure to work with. It feels like it was tailored to me. I love wearing a hoodie with it.
I’ve bought the slim bomber jacket and pea coat over the years. Great and wonderful company!!
Just a fantastic coat. Purchased for riding. I already own the peacoat and love it. So, when I needed a leather for the bike, this was a no-brainer. Fit and finish is spectacular. No break-in required. Thanks, again Schott.
Beautiful jacket delivered fast.
5'9" 145, small is a perfect fit for me.
