I'm 5'7" -110 thus finding a jacket small enough to fit me while still being long enough is rather tough. The form fitting cut of this jackets works great for us skinny motorcycle guys that want a jacket that fits and still offers protection.
Smells fantastic, leather feels and looks great. Love the style but the fit is like no other jacket I've ever owned. For starters, I have another cafe racer style street leather jacket that actually is smaller without a bi-swing back at 38 vs this 40 that fits better. I also have a motorcycling specific cafe racer leather jacket with armor made in Europe where they design with a trimmer fit than here and that fits better with a better range of movement also without a bi-swing back. That fits great at the same size medium 40" chest. I am 5'7" 152lbs. with shorter legs, longer torso and arms. I have a fit build for 62 with 39.5" chest and 30-31" waist jeans and no gut. The shoulders on this 530 are small and really restrict movement, the chest is ok but could be bigger, the body below is big and longer than I am used to in this style of jacket. The arms however were seriously long! All the way down creeping past my knuckles. Don't tell me they are cut that way for guys riding with apes 'cause even Schott will tell you this is not a motorcycling jacket. Besides, neither of my 2 motorcycle specific jackets suffer from overly long sleeves and in the riding position there is enough room in the shoulders that the sleeves don't ride up past my wrists and I can move around comfortably without restriction or bi-swing backs. So with this medium 530 cut I can't go bigger without the waist area getting too long and voluminous with the arms even longer and I can't go smaller to make the length and volume of waist, or the length of arms fit better. I opted to have the arms shortened by 1 5/8" for $100 and hope that the shoulders, chest, back area stretches out to fit me better. If this fit the way my motorcycling cafe racer jacket fit I'd have given 5*.
Perfect fit and look.
Bought the jacket online on 3/25/22 and rcvd it 3/29! Been wanting this jacket since I was kid. Found Schott sized myself online. Perfect fit and the quality is top notch!!
Schott craftsmanship- A rare & unique example of fine work, great care and attention to the details in creating a very standout jacket. Perfect fit, beautiful finish, very comfortable to wear - you don’t want to take it off. Standing in line for brunch, looking at the leather coat in front of me, I wanted to say - “too bad about your coat - you should have bought a Schott!”
Extra small was a bit too tight around the torso for me (30" waist), so I decided to do a trouble-free exchange for a regular small, and now my new jacket fits as if it was tailor-made. Thanks for everything, Schott...you guys are the best!
This Jacket is Awesome. Quality is USA!
Fit guide is excellent! I ordered a medium and fits like a glove. I’m 5-8 164#. It’s really Neat!
It’s pricey but worth every penny. Looks good with anything……….feels even better!
If I had all the money back from cheap jackets, I could have bought this twice. You get what you pay for.
I ordered this after I purchased and received the WAXY LAMBSKIN DELIVERY JACKET. The leather is just as soft and more durable. I am 5’11”, 190 lbs with an athletic build, and the jacket fits perfectly. I was traveling to Chicago last week for a long weekend of fun and delayed my trip by 6 hours waiting for delivery. It was worth the wait, Chicago was cold and windy, and the jacket keep me warm while a walked around the Mag mile shopping. Not to mention, receiving several unsolicited compliments of how nice and what brand jacket. Another winner from Schott NYC.
I was looking for a really nice jacket since my old one was a pretty entry level jacket and wasn't worth maintaining anymore. I found so many options and people online kept raving about Schott so I took a chance and let me tell you, it blew my expectations out of the water. The quality is top tier, the dimensions were spot on (I am 5'10, 190 and it fits like a glove, not too tight but not loose, just enough room). Everything was meticulously cared for. This jacket will likely outlive me. I will be having more business with Schott in the future. The only thing I would change about the jacket is having an inner pocket on both sides. It's only on 1 side. Not a deal breaker, just preference. 10/10
I'm 5'7, 150lbs, 48yo. Originally bought the 654VN in Medium, but the vintaging process shrinks it down quite a bit and it was just too tight. Exchanged (painlessly) for the 530, also in Medium. The fit is much better, though the sleeves were a bit a long (I know, I know, motorcycle jacket yeah yeah) so I took the bold step of soaking the sleeves in hot water for a minute and then I threw the whole jacket in the dryer with a few dry towels on low heat. And now? It's perfect. Shrunk the sleeves down a bit, left the rest fine, and took some of the waxy 'new' look off of the leather. What you you say? These jackets are expensive, because they're just the best. Thick, perfectly made, just gorgeous. It cost a lot... but I feel like a million bucks every time I pull it on. Just go for it.
