The second you remove the plastic you are greeted with the most delightful smell and your fingers touch soft premium leather - woah. It’s an experience. When you slip this jacket on you know it was handmade and crafted, seemingly just for you - that’s how good the fit is. This has been mentioned constantly by other buyers, but it bears repeating.
I would rate this between medium and heavy weight, so as much as I’d like to, can’t wear it above 75 degrees. It’s got range, too - hoody, collared shirt, and tee - doesn’t matter.
Said simply, it’s perfection personified. Many thanks, Schott.
I have purchased several motorcycle style jackets over the years and I can honestly say that this the best one of them all. After reading the reviews for this jacket regarding the fit, I decided to order the 530 in extra small. The quality of the leather was/is superb, but it was a little too tight around the chest when I zipped it up, and I could barely move my arms--I wanted a slim fit, not sausage fit. Clearly, this was not my size. I contacted Schott, followed the exchange instructions, and shipped it back to them. The exchange was super easy and trouble free--great customer service! I ordered the jacket in small and it arrived within a week from the time I shipped it back. to Schott. The 530 in small fit me like a glove! I am 5'8", 155 lbs., 30" waist, and 37" chest. I can zip the jacket up without having to pull and force it together and the sleeves fall to about one inch under my wrist. Yes, it is pricey, but when you consider that this jacket will probably last for the rest of your life, it is worth the investment. Great product!
Looks good, fits good, feels good, smells good.
Staff, Jerri, was very kind and helpful. Thanks.
My first brown leather jacket and I am very satisfied with it. Great quality. Delivery was as promised.
This is my second jacket from Schott NYC.
I am one happy customer.
Top caliber materials and craftsmanship. The zipper is robust and the fit feels bespoke on my frame.
An XL was the perfect choice for me. I’m 6 foot tall and 200 pounds. Been a 6 day a week gym rat for decades.. I wear a 43 sport coat. The 530 body and arm length is ideal and I’ve got a long torso.
I don’t think jacket would be a good fit if you have a big gut. It’s just not cut to fit large waisted gents.
The leather is very supple and the look is clean and slim.
I have 4 other Schott jackets and I really like all of them but this is new favorite.
My 3rd Schott jacket and this one is my favorite. Awesome quality and fit. I feel like a different person when I put this on. Perfect medium weight. The bi-swing arms really help fwith freedom of movement. Bought the black and immediately ordered the brown once I tried this on.
It's harder to find true high quality hand made garments manufactured in the US by experienced craftsmen. Schott NYC is the best.
My 3rd Schott jacket and fits like a glove! Perfect medium weight, incredible quality and made to last a lifetime. You will feel like a different person when you put this on. Ordered it in black and immediately ordered the brown after trying it on. It’s rare to find true American made, high quality handmade garments in today’s world. This company has an amazing history and culture. You owe it yourself to experience this jacket and the Schott culture.
Schott fit guide was very helpful as was their comparison chart and filters. I find their slim fit is best for me vs. the classic fit. Customer Service was very helpful for guidance and information (thank you Jerri Reyes)!
I own quite a few leather jackets, including 5 Schotts. (Yeah, leather jackets can become addicting!) This 530 is probably the most versatile of them all. I have an old 530 I bought used in brown and loved it so much I got this new one in black. They’re buttery soft and comfortable with no break-in required, yet are much more substantial and durable than light lambskin jackets. The pebble-grained leather is gorgeous and the simple classic styling goes with anything. Quality hardware and construction throughout. Get compliments whenever I wear it. Seems to be that ”just right” compromise between stiff armor-like biker jackets and flimsy light fashion jackets. The flannel lining is warm enough for moderate cold weather, especially layered with a sweater or hoody, but is light & breathable enough to wear over a T-shirt on high 60’s fall/spring days. I’m 5’9” 175lbs with a 43” chest and the large fits almost perfect, just a touch long in sleeves. Pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to zip a Medium closed over my chest.
The jacket is expensive but the quality and versatility still make it a great value. It’ll last you a lifetime. And make you look & feel good every time you slip it on.
As with everything from Schott, this jacket is perfect. Love the leather, the fit, the look. Wouldn’t change a thing. Should have got one of these a long time ago. Classics never go out of style.
The 530 is so damn cool!!! The cut, the color, the smell, the craftsmanship, the customer support - Everything about Schott is SUPERB!
My husband is 5'10" about 215lbs with a 46" chest.
He is normally a L or XL in everything he owns (XL in every jacket and coat he owns) but the L and XL were too tight and he couldn't lift his arms and it was too snug around his torso. The 46" chest indicated for the XL is literally his chest size, he couldn't wear anything but a T-shirt underneath and he looked silly in it. I thought it would stretch with use but it was explained to me that isn't the case. The leather will soften up a little more over time and contour with you body shape but it won't stretch.
We ordered the 2XL and it fits him perfectly!! If you are in the fence with XL or 2XL you might want to go with a 2XL so you have the freedom to wear anything you want underneath.
The jacket is perfect for the chilly autumn/early winter season here on the Maine coast.
The liner is so nice. We love the plaid. It's a darker pattern than other photos we saw online where the liner looks almost like a mustard color pallete. Our liners in all the jackets were tried look exactly like our photo. It's very attractive!
One thing to take note of is the color of one of the jackets didn't look like the dark "oil rubbed" look on the website. It was more like a medium tan. So when you order I would suggest you call up the customer service number and indicate you want the make sure the brown matches the dark brown on the website, unless you aren't as particular. I specifically lived the website color because it matches his car interior and I wanted it to match.
It's my understanding that color might vary a little based on the leather itself. It's an organic thing and dyes might look differently on each item. That's just my understanding of it.
The jacket is absolutely stunning and my husband looks quite hot in it, which makes us both very happy. Five stars all around!
I'm hooked on this website and ordered his a sweater and a leather wine carrying tote. I think all of his future gifts will come from here now that I know how to size him.
