Hands down the greatest garment to ever grace my body. The investment is worth it.
The thick heavy leather, the smell, the stitching, the attention to detail… the HISTORY of Schott. The action back allowing the arms to swing and reach the motorcycle handlebars without becoming tight is perfect. The 118 is what all other jackets attempt to copy and fail miserably at it. I wear mine as my primary motorcycle jacket. Remember, you get what you pay for, and the Schott is well and above worth every penny of an investment.
This jacket is seriously one of the best clothing items I’ve ever purchased, it may be the best! The leather is buttery smooth, heavy, and soft. What I really appreciate about this jacket is that it provides the right amount of flair and attitude. I figured if I was going to spend 1k, I would want to be noticed. I have a size 39 chest, and initially went with size 40. However, the 40 was too small as I couldn’t layer hoodies or sweaters underneath. Living in Ohio, it’s important to layer as our winters can be brutal. I returned the size 40 and went with a size 42, and the jacket fits perfect. The returns process was hassle free (great customer service). Overall, I love the versatility, quality, and beauty of this jacket. It’s expensive, but worth every penny.
I’ve always wanted this style of jacket since my childhood, and figured I would get the double rider from the folks who invented the design over a century ago. When I received the jacket, I was pleasantly surprised by the leather quality (smooth, buttery feel) and the overall weight. Living in Ohio, I needed a jacket that was heavy weight, durable, and had flair. I figured if I was going to spend 1k for a jacket, I would want to be noticed. The 118 I received everything I was looking for. However, I originally got a size 40 as I have a 39 inch chest (recommended size), but I later returned it and got a size 42 because it fit too snug for my liking. I absolutely love the fit of the size 42 as I like to layer thick hoodies and sweaters underneath. I may eventually get a couple inches taken off the arms as the jacket arms are a bit long. I don’t ride motorcycles, so the extra inches needed for reaching the bars isn’t needed in my case. Schott customer service did a great job of responding to questions I had. Overall, buying this jacket was a great experience. I look forward to passing this jacket down to one of my sons (they’ll have to rock, paper, scissors for it lol).
Not only is this the best jacket I've ever bought, it's probably the best thing I've ever bought. Everything about it is just quality. It looks ace, fits like a dream, and the little touches just add a bit of extra va-va-voom.
Plus it arrived from the US to the UK in two days.
I have wanted the classic Brando jacket ever since I can remember! There are many imitators but none compare to the original. Upon opening the box I could see that it was a real thing of beauty and when I put it on for the first time the feel of the leather the smell and most importantly the fit made me feel like a million dollars. I would not change a thing! I would highly recommend the Classic Perfecto motorcycle jacket!
First leather jacket I have had, and you certainly need to get used to the feel and weight of a heavy jacket. The craftmanship is superb and exchanges are very simple to do. Would reccommend.
My brother has wanted this jacket for a long time and I decided to purchase it for him . It is his Christmas and Birthday gift this year, he is thrilled.
It fits perfect, it is everything he hoped it would be.Thank you for a great product.
The jacket is incredibly well made. As far as quality is concerned the jacket gets 10 stars. I only have 2 issues. #1 it says order your normal coat/chest size and you’ll have enough room to wear a sweater/sweatshirt underneath it. I did not find this to be the case, at least not comfortably. Ordering in my regular chest size gave me “just enough room” to zip it up. #2 the sleeve lengths are WAY too long. At rest, the sleeves fully cover my hands all the way down to the ends of the tips of my fingers. Granted, Schott will shorten the sleeves for you for an additional cost (4 inches max: which may not be enough for some) but you have to buy the coat, ensure it fits, and then send it back to have the alterations completed. While a hassle, it makes sense how it must be done this way.
It is difficult to get just the right fit when ordering leather online. Exchanged jacket is snug and I don't know if it will loosen up or become tighter with wear..
I received my Perfecto 118 last week, and I have been wearing it. It’s a perfect fit and the leather looks awesome. Wearing this jacket is like my stress and anxiety melts away. I know it’s a material item, but it makes me happy and makes me feel cool. The price is well worth it for my happiness. Schott Rocks!
