I owned a Schott motorcycle jacket over 20 years ago so I’m familiar with the company, their history and unequaled quality. I decided I wanted another nice leather jacket but a more casual style. I first ordered a 665 Asset style that was the most beautiful and nicest jacket I’ve ever seen but ended up exchanging it for this 530 model because it was very heavy and stiff and would take a long time to break in. To my delight, this 530 is every bit as nice, soft as butter and the perfect weight - heavy enough but comfortable. For size comparison, I’m 5’ 11” 215 lbs with a 49 inch chest measurement and normally wear a size XL. The measurement chart recommended a 2X so that’s what I ordered and it fits like it was tailor made. I have fairly long arms and normally need a tall size in long sleeve shirts. My only fear in ordering was that the arms might be too short. I was pleasantly surprised that the arms are the perfect length for me. So if your arms are on the shorter side, you may find them a little long. A Schott jacket is not cheap, but it’s a quality investment that will last a lifetime.
Like many of us, I have been waiting to get this jacket for a while - and got it during Thanksgiving. The quality of the jacket is impeccable. Fit wise, I'd say the recommended size (on the website) worked for me - although I did note that the jacket loosened up a bit after a few wear. Overall very happy with the buy and can tell that it will last for a long time.
A well-made and well-fitting leather jacket can make you feel like a different person when you wear it. It's a similar effect as putting on a nice suit or a flight suit; you don't just feel different, people treat you differently.
I did a lot of research before I purchased this jacket and I'm glad I did. Every part of this jacket is very high quality from the zippers, to the buckles, to the snaps on the collar. The leather is very supple with no imperfections and feels as good as the day I first put it on (two years ago).
This is also a very tough jacket. I wear this jacket A LOT and in all different weather. I've worn it riding my motorcycle, while shoveling snow, running a forklift for twelve hours a day, and everything in between. With proper maintenance, I have no doubt this jacket will still be in good working order when I give it to my son in 17 years.
Bought this beautiful leather jacket for my husband for Christmas in XL. It fit perfect. The leather is absolutely gorgeous and worth every penny to be made in the USA was very important and worth the extra cost. So happy thanks
Excellent quality coat. Loved it, but the fit and style weren't quite right for me. I ended up returning it. I ended up ordering three different coats before I found the one that was perfect for me, and it was exactly what I wanted. Could not be happier. The return process was super easy. No hassle at all even though I did it more than once. No questions asked. Schott got me the exchange super fast on both returns.
I was hesitant to buy a $900 jacket online without seeing it and trying it on. I read endless reviews, researched articles, viewed hours of YouTube review videos, and emailed Schott directly for their sizing chart for this jacket. Eventually, I took the plunge and am glad that I did because the quality is exceptional! Anyone interested in this jacket should ask Schott for the sizing chart. In fact, Schott should have the charts online for each jacket. The fit is #1 priority when buying a leather jacket. What is currently available on the Schott website isn’t adequate enough when making a $900 decision.
Most of the reviews on here aren’t helpful enough to decide on which size to get. I’m 6’4”, 33 inch waist, 185 lbs, athletic build, 40 long suit, 15 1/2 34/35 shirt, 33 x 34 pants, Medium t-shirts. I have an upside down triangle figure with broader shoulders and a smaller waist.
I was trying to decide between M or L for this jacket. Based on the measurement sizing charts, the length between the two are exactly the same. The sleeve length is only about 1/4 inch longer in the Large. Chest size on Medium is up to 40 inch chest whereas the Large is up to a 44 chest.
I went with a Medium sized jacket. It fits like a glove! Honestly, the jacket looks better on me than the models that they have on the Schott website.
The quality is exceptional. The leather is heavy. The hardware is top notch.
A few disappointments. 1. The plaid cotton lining inside kinda sucks. I would have liked to see a higher quality fabric. 2. There is no interior left side pocket. The only pocket is on the right side. Come on Schott! I’d pay $10 more of a left side interior pocket. 3. I was expecting an intoxicating leather smell when I opened the package. Nope! Very little leather scent comes off the jacket.
Overall, this is a superior leather jacket! Once you do your due diligence on the sizing, just order it. You won’t be disappointed. Remember, the proper size is King.
Beautiful jacket. Size S for 5’7”, 160lbs, 32 waist is perfect. Liner is surprisingly warm; great for temperature range 30-65F. In retrospect I might have considered one of their similar lightweight racers for wear in more seasons.
Love this jacket the fit is perfect, I’m 5’8 150 pounds with a 32inch waist, small was perfect. The leather itself is very nice and I like the checkers lining. Well worth the price.
I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he loved it- it was true to size. His favorite part is that it is made in the USA. The leather is super soft and the fit was perfect on him
Loving the 530. Great feel. Waxy cowhide works for this style. Looks tough and thick, but supple feel.
*Sizing: I’m 6’0” and 210. XL fits right. For me. Not super snug, not super loose. I’ll wear this with flannel shirts, hoodies or sweaters.
This is so basic, but so classically cool that it can be worn almost anywhere. Dig it.
