Take a trip back in time, and try to remember that precise moment you decided you wanted to wear a leather jacket. Maybe you saw a guy on a motorcycle, or maybe you were watching a movie, or maybe rocking out to your favorite band. Whatever that moment was, this was probably the jacket that you saw in that moment. The 118 is a icon. I've owned mine for a decade and the jacket just gets better with age.
For size reference, I'm 5'9 215 lbs. with a 47 inch chest and 36 inch waist. The 48 regular fits perfectly with enough room to layer a heavy flannel underneath.
Put it on. You won't be sorry.
I bought this jacket as a casual jacket after having a similar style of jacket many years ago. Bought direct from US, no issues. Be prepared for the import charge, still a bit cheaper than buying in UK though. I bought mine online, tried on a 40" and a 42" from a UK stockist. I am a 42 chest. 40 was too small and first 42 was too big, more like a 46" (don't know what was going on there, wrong size label fitted maybe?) The 2nd 42 jacket I tried is good fit. Fitting is neat but this is the style of it, room for a t shirt or shirt under, that's all. I love it, well made quality item. I would imagine my jacket will just get better as it wears in. Customer service from US was excellent,(Denise) helpful and prompt replies to my questions about sizing. Highly recommended.
I'm 72, been riding Harleys since I was 22, others as a kid. Owned many leathers, even a Bates. Sold it to buy this; the finest, best fitting jacket I've owned yet. 152 mile run today in 37° weather..wind chill @ 75MPH..legs cold, chest warm. GREATEST JACKET. Won't buy another because this one will outlast me;)
The 118 is the best perfecto/biker leather jacket. I love this jacket is so soft , smooth , and comfortable comparing it the 618 beloved steerhide. I am 5 10 185 lbs athletic build size 40 chest however i sized down to a 38 for a slim fit bad boy look.
This jacket is truly Perfecto. It is completely perfect, from the style to the fit. The quality is unmatched. The leather is soft yet tough. If you want perfection, this is the classic motorcycle jacket to get. It will last a lifetime. I’m sure it will outlast me. Great job Schott! Perfect jacket and perfect customer service from beginning to end. Keep up the great work.
The cut the fit the leather and quality. Are all perfect. Order your true size. It’s going to fit and feel great. You want to add this one to your collection for sure.
The jacket is really well made and great quality leather. I’m 6’1” and 220pounds with a 46” chest. I ordered a 46 regular which fits me perfectly with a hoodie worn underneath which is exactly what I wanted.
If you want a really fitted jacket I wouldn’t say the 118 is for you as it’s a more relaxed fit in my opinion.
Really happy with my purchase
This jacket is so many things but these three matter the most to me. One it created the biker jacket category, Two if you don't own this jacket then you own a jacket trying to copy this jacket "There's only one Harley Davidson and there's only one Schott NYC" Three it's made in the USA. Conclusion, stop pretending and get a Perfecto!
Outstanding quality, fit, and finish. I have had multiple long rides in this jacket and it has kept me warm, comfortable, and looking good.
Perfect addition to your collection . Great leather weight . If you ride also just the right cut to feel comfortable. Quality as you always expect and get with a Schott purchase . It’s going to be one of my favorite ones for sure . I’m sure you be delighted also . It is very true to size .
