I am no stranger to Schott nyc leather jackets. I was familiar with the Snug fit 618 and 613 from decades ago. So, I was concerned about ordering online and getting the right fit on the 118. After much measuring and comparing I decided to order true to size. I wear a size 40 Long suit, so I ordered 40 (the 118 is an inch longer in the body and sleeves than the 618) It fits great! Thanks for the size chart it also helped!
I would have to agree with other comments here, this jacket is truly amazing. The leather is thick, has an nice soft texture and looks beautiful. I followed online advice and ordered down (a size 40 and I am normally a 42). My one issue so far is that even though I have broad shoulders, there is still extra room when I zip the jacket up and I do get air in there when riding. I hope this becomes less of a problem as the jacket gets further broken in.
I received my jacket today, my chest is 42 and a half. I weigh 180. The chart said to get a 42 I did once it gets broken in it will be perfect. I can put on a long john top and tee shirt now. I will be able to add a sweat shirt once I get it broke in. That is all I want as I will not be riding if I need more due to the quality of the coat. It is very heavy and well made. I ordered it Sunday afternoon it arrived Tuesday morning. If you ride this is a must have. I am totally happy with the purchase.
Sup gals. Here's the deal. I'm 25, 5'10" and weigh about 145. I'm a tomboy and I have a very straight figure so I don't like how women's jackets come in at the waist. Like why?? My waist doesn't do that so why should my jacket? Anyway, my chest measures at 38, so thats what I bought. I'm stoked about my purchase, but keep in mind, this jacket is very roomy. It isn't fitted/slim fit, like H&M and other fast fashion brands have us accustomed to. There's room to throw on a couple layers underneath to actually stay warm on those winter rides. I'm happy with this because the winters where I live are unbelievably cold. However, if I lived in a warmer climate I may have exchanged for a 36. So keep that in mind. Overall, I'm so happy with this purchase. So ready to wear this jacket for the rest of my days and pass it down to my children because it is truly so indestructible and beautiful and classic.
I did a bunch of research before I bought my very first leather jacket. I kept coming to the schott perfecto. I bounced between a couple other jackets like the 626 and the 618 but i went for the 118 because of the the little extra mobility compared to the 626 and the extra inch in length compared to the 618. I'm 6 ft 2 in 195 lbs and that extra inch (I kept the 26 in length instead of doing the 28 in) was exactly what I needed for that perfect fit. I was also interested in a jacket that was slim fit to my body. I seen some reviews on youtube and the 118 looked very loose fit so I was a little worried about the look I was going for. I have a 44 in chest and have a very athletic build. Small waist (32 in) and a big chest. I just decided to trust the recommendation of the fit guide on this site and chose the very slim fit and it suggested a size 42. When I received the jacket and started to try it on I put one arm in and could tell it was going to be a perfect fit. The jacket fit like a glove. Like it was made specifically for my body. It truly is an amazing jacket and I'm glad I picked the 118. The durability of this jacket will definitely outlive me and I plan on leaving it to my son when I pass and I'm sure it will outlive him. Thank you Schott!
This beautiful Perfecto 118 is a gift to my son Steve. It is a matchless masterpiece of American craftsmanship and history. I’ll bet it will be an all time lifelong favorite, and he’ll remember his old dad every time he wears it. I can almost imagine him as Brando in high fidelity (size 50). Super cools!!👍👍 Thanks to Casey for helping make the purchase. She knows every product offered!
Purchased a 141 in 2014, didn't fit too well but still a very nice jacket. Recently I purchased the 118 and couldn't be happier, beautiful leather, fit and finish. I also used it for a few motorcycle rides and it works great, well done Schott.
The new 118 perfecto is a beautiful made in USA product. I still have my. 1984 118 , just outgrew it. Decided to buy a new one and no regrets. Fit and finish are perfecto....put it on felt like an old friend! For reference to anyone I’m 5’8” 168lbs with a 41-1/2” chest , went with a size 40 and it’s perfect . Thanks you Schott for still making a quality product!
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.
