Awesome jacket, great customer service.
My first Schott and I am very pleased with it. I like the brown color, and the craftsmanship and quality of the jacket are first rate. The sleeves were too long, but I had them shortened--I think it was worth doing that as it fits me much better now.
This is my second jacket from Schott. I like it because of the simple lines and lack of do-dads. It's a very warm jacket (I went on a walk in 10 degree weather today). Very sturdy leather. Two hand pockets and two interior pockets. One zipper pocket over left chest. I went through a bit of worrying with size etc,, but I think it fits pretty good. I'm a 60 year old man, 5'8" and 180 lbs and got a size 42. I did have to send it back to get the sleeves shortened by 1.5 inches. I probably could have lived with it, but it was pretty hassle-free (cost $75 plus postage to shorten the sleeves and took about two weeks). Great jacket. Solid feel. Good winter jacket, but probably a bit much for warmer climates. I'm glad I took the time and effort to get the sleeves shortened. I got the black one, and it's very nice and I think it's a great value.
This is a very heavy jacket, great for winter. It’s well made, thick leather (which I like very much) and very roomy. I ordered size 48 per the sizing guide, but it seems to be a bit too large. The waist line is also a bit too big. If it was tapered a bit, it would be perfect. Upon receiving, I wore the jacket out (and removed the tags), so I could not return it. If you plan to purchase this jacket, I recommend ordering one size down. If you like a roomy jacket, order per the sizing guide. The jacket has enough room for a heavy hoodie/sweater. This is the second Schott jacket I ordered (in January 2021) and I have a third one coming. The first jacket (793) is a 2XL and the fit is snug, the second (135) is a 48 and it’s too roomy, and the third (673) is a 2XL and it will be arriving by 8 February. Wonder what the fit will be. Bottom line, I like the jacket.
This coat arrived on a very cold and windy day, and right out of the box it was perfectly warm. The size was a great fit, and every detail of its construction was very well done. Small, but helpful things like the oversized zip pull, the gap between the zipper and the bottom edge of the coat, the length of the sleeves, and the soft collar, all speak to an obsession with design and ease of use. The only minor quibble I have is the weight of the coat - it is heavier than it looks! Once I put it on, it doesn't feel that heavy, however. Overall, this was well worth the investment (and cheaper than many other real leather coats I looked at).
After losing some weight, my old favorite leather jacket no longer fit. I waited a long time to replace it because I was looking for something special. When I found Schott's selection, I knew it was time.
After trying a different model first, I made an exchange for this (#135) for both fit and style. The customer service was amazing, and I quickly received the replacement.
It's still very new, but I'm extremely satisfied with the quality, look, and feel.
For those of you who are detail oriented, here are some notes on this model. I was nervous about the "pebbled" surface, worried it would look like inferior products I've seen with fake looking texture. I was thrilled to find it was beautiful and natural in look and feel. The hardware and construction is top notch, and the leather itself feels rich and heavy - but not overly stiff.
The only "negatives" (which are barely that) are that the collar is very traditional - and therefore a bit larger than my typical taste. Also, I'd originally tried a size 42, which was too small. I exchanged for a 44, which is a bit too big - but great for fitting over a bulky sweater.
I can't recommend Schott's quality and service more highly. I'll gladly recommend them to everyone I know who's looking for a quality piece like this.
The jacket is phenomenal, and I am very satisfied with the quality. The jacket is quite thick, and is great for cold days. 46 size fits perfectly on a sweatshirt, and for a T-shirt I would need a number less, 44. Since I live in Greece, choosing the right size was a difficult task for me, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Denise for her generous help. She was great. By the way, I am 195cm tall. weight 100kg. and my chest circumference is 113-115cm. depends on which tailor measures. The only thing I don't like is that the inside pockets don't close. There is no possibility of closing the inner pockets, so the possibility of things falling out of the pockets is great. So money, documents and other valuables cannot be kept in the jacket.
This is my first Schott leather jacket.
Wow, such quality compared to my other leathers.
I took a huge chance on buying this because I’m in Ireland.
I’m 5’8 and almost 15 Stones (210lbs) I think, so the size chart advise was for a 44” but read the reviews on here I went with the 42 and phew, fits like it was custom made.
It’s also worth ask Schott for the size file on the item your looking at,they are really quick to reply and this is how I made my size choice.
The 135 is soft but strong, great zippers, thick high grade leather.
The collar is just a little bit big and lays flat,I would prefer if it stood a little firmer,but not a deal breaker.
The sleeves are perfect, though at 26.5 I was fully expecting them to be too long. Nope, perfect. All my other leather jackets are 25” length in the sleeves and this 135 seems to be the same, which I’m delighted about.
I’m going to get this in Brown soon.
Hope this helps others to decide on their correct size.
Great work Schott and great service.
My favorite jacket. I'm 6'0", 175-185 lbs, depending... Size 40 is the perfect fit. I bought black, but am sure brown would be nice, too. It's December, I've had it less than a month, but am wearing it every day. I live in the Catskills and in Queens, NY. The jacket is warm, and I can wear it with just a T-shirt, zipped, in F temperatures from the 30s to 50s. With a sweater underneath and a hat, 20s F are no problem. The style is more conservative and versatile than many or most Schott offerings, which appealed to me. My initially skeptical wife quickly warmed to this purchase. I wouldn't change a thing about this jacket.
The jacket is beautiful, and the customer service outstanding. Had to exchange for size, very easy to do. Schott makes high quality products and they are efficient in shipping and exchanges. What more can you ask for? Highly recommend.
