be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
It’s my first leather jacket and straight away upon receiving it you could tell how hight the quality was. Theresa was really helpful in picking a size right for me because i sat in between a L and XL. It may be my first leather jacket, but it definitely won’t be the last.
This jacket is very high quality It was real noticeable right out of the box. This jacket is worth every cent you get your moneys worth. I have 8 Leather Jackets in my collection, and this jacket just went to the top. I can see this jacket lasting over 20 years, and more. Thank you Schott NYC you have set the bar real high. My wife and I agree looks like I wont be going anywhere else for a leather jacket. I will start getting rid of some of my collection. The other jackets don't feel right anymore the quality isn't there with my other leather jackets. I have jackets from HD,guess, and etc. Thanks again Schott NYC other companies should take a page from your book you guys clearly set the stage.
I had a knot in my brain before ordering this jacket because of all the reviews that are on the site. I measure 1.83 m (6”) for 79 kg (179 lb) and my chest circumference is 104 cm (41 Inch) I can wear this jacket with a T-shirt and the visual rendering is the one you see on the men model on the site (not the one with the, beard and the hair long because in his case I find the jacket too wide) ... I ordered an L (risky I am in France and the return would have been impossible) and the L is perfectly adjusted (exactly as the model is wearing from the site) with a light sweet hooded zips it also works (but couldn’t be thicker)
This jacket is really nice !
This jacket is really great. High quality leather that feels like a baseball glove, will take some time to break in. Looking forward to wearing this for years to come!
Very nice! Fits, feels, and looks great!....good quality and can tell it will last.
I was reluctant to buy this jacket online never having seen it in person. My concern was how a slim fit jacket would fit considering I’m 6’1” 270 lbs with a chest size of 50”. But, I decided to take the risk having bought a classic Perfecto during one of my trips to NYC a few years ago which I love.
I followed the recommendation of the online sizing tool which suggested I buy an XXXL! I normally wear a XXL for everything else.
I got the jacket about 24 hours later and I love it! The quality is so amazing and the leather is so supple. It’s also lite enough to wear during the warmer seasons of the year.
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
