The quality, fit, comfort, stitching, finish, color just everything was perfect. Extremely fast service. Couldn't be happier.
The quality and craftsmanship of this jacket is amazing! I'm 5'9 134# and the 118 size 34 fits perfectly. Arm length is a little long even for riding, but I have short arms. I emailed customer service and they told me that shortening the sleeve length would be no problem. I'm very happy with my purchase! I'm already looking at the 618 for my next one.
I actually initially ordered the 118 in a size 38. To give you some context, my measurements are below:
The fit was excellent around the chest, but the only issue for me was the sleeves were a little too long and wide for my liking. I can see how this fit makes 100% sense for bikers, i don’t happen to be one though.
The quality of this leather is UNREAL! This one is cow hide I believe and was buttery soft and very comfortable. It’s got all the bells and whistles needed for riders.
For myself personally I’ve always worn moto jackets because i love the esthetics and fit of a nice leather.
I ended up returning the 118 for a 613S in my chest size (40) as it was recommended by Denise (if I recall correctly). And boy, was that the best decision I’ve made! It fits exactly like a new leather should fit in the beginning, snug but not too tight with enough room to break in over the years. I’m incredibly happy with the customer service/support I’ve received from Schott and happy I chose this incredible company!
Ordered several jackets to see which one fit the best. The 118l was the only one that fit me in the arms. I sized down and can still fit a sweatshirt under it. Now that I've had it a few weeks I know I made the right decision. It's the classic, no BS, real deal motorcycle jacket.
I bought this primarily as a riding jacket, but will wear it casually sometimes too. I am 6'1", 187 lbs., and my chest measures at 41.5". I have a somewhat athletic build, with a thinner waist at 32". I bought a size 40, which the sizing chart recommended for a slimmer fit. I typically like all my clothes to be somewhat form fitting without being too tight, and the 118 fits the bill perfectly. When I first put it on, it was a little snug but had some room to spare. I can layer a hoodie or a flannel underneath just fine. You just have to know that it is a little snug (especially when brand new), but I like that type of fit. If you like a more relaxed fit, and you match my build, you could go with a 42 and be alright too. It also begins to quickly form to your body as well, so keep that in mind. I don't feel I even have to mention quality. Amazing craftsmanship and beautiful leather. You really can't go wrong.
The Perfecto 118 is the nicest jacket I’ve owned in my 73 years. It’s very well made and great on the ride. It fits just right, thanks to the customer service lady. (I would’ve ordered the wrong size without her guidance). I also ordered the faux fur collar which comes in handy when it’s colder and removes when it’s not. Best quality products from best quality workers, keep up the good work. Thanks.
I first bought one of these back in 1989 in Geneva, Switzerland. Shortly after, it was stolen... Over the next thirty years I have gone through many jackets, some ill fitting, some okay, but none measured up to the original Schott. So yesterday, I finally stepped up and ordered a new Perfecto 118. To my shock, it arrived only 24 hrs later, from new York to Vancouver Canada. Straight out of the box, it fits perfectly and feels like it was made specifically for me. Although pretty expensive, the main reason it took me so long to get one again, ($1250.00 Cdn dollars with the exchange rate and duty), no regrets. This baby is worth every penny. I did gamble a little on the sizing. I normally wear a 42, but I remember my first jacket all those years ago was a 42 and did feel a little small. I am 5'11, 160 lbs. This time I got a 44 and it is perfect.
This jacket is amazing. Excellent quality and service. Thank you everyone at Schott!!
Very happy with my whole experience in purchasing this jacket, the webpage, service, and the the jacket is excellent quality worth every penny.
Keep up the good work !!
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.
