be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
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!
First, order your true size. I initially tried sizing down, and it was too tight all over. Thankfully Schott makes exchanges painless. Now that I have my 42, it is an amazing jacket. The leather is stunning and, equally so, is the hardware. It looks and feels every bit of its heritage and reputation.
Now, some buy this purely as a fashion jacket, but I ride and I did buy this to be my cold/cool weather jacket. As a riding jacket it is incredibly comfortable. I was tempted to get a tall (I’m 6’2”, but I have longer legs than torso, and the standard length is exactly where I want it on a cruiser-type motorcycle. It doesn’t bunch up when I sit on the saddle. Also, I love the ability to zip up all the way. It kept the wind away from my neck, and with a full face helmet, I do not need a gator or neck warmer. Sleeves are plenty long, and mobility is excellent. Some riders criticize not having armor, and while that is ideal, this is probably some of the highest quality protective leather you’ll find on any jacket. Also, I have broad shoulders and I’ve had issues with armor hurting my shoulders during long periods, so for me it’s a wash.
Wonderful heirloom quality piece.
Growing up in Brooklyn NY. I remember putting a 118 on layaway at a Harley dealer. I always missed it. I finally bought a new one. I love putting it on. It’s such a great feeling. The quality and the smell of it. I couldn’t ask for anything better. Thanks for still being around, and making great jackets. I also just received my 141.. I just want to wear them all the time.
This jacket is absolutely perfect, the fit and quality is impeccable, I know this jacket is timeless and will last a lifetime.
WOW. Right off unboxing this heavy beast you can see the top quality leather and detail. Instant badass feeling when you wear it. To anyone having reservations, I'm a slim and tall guy at 1.85 and 67 KG with a 35 chest. I ordered 36 and the fit is RIGHT where I want it for layering but also looking good with a t-shirt. Length and sleeve length is exactly right. So don't have any reservations over it being bulky or something. If you order your right size, it will be just so good. Thanks Schott!
I am very happy with the jacket very good quality, even it cost me a lot of money from the exchange rate, shipping cost, import duty tax but still very happy, money well spent. from Sydney Australia
