be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
My new (and first) Schott jacket arrived last week. I found the jacket to be exactly what I was expecting based on the website description- so well done Schott. Normally I wear a Belstaff, but I have to say my new Schott competes handsomely, so now I am thoroughly spoilt for choice.
I’ve had this jacket for 2 years now and “love it” is an understatement. I dress it up, I dress it down, I wear it with sweats to the gym, The quality of the jacket is amazing. I’m a 44L suit but bought a 42L in the jacket so it would stretch to fit perfectly and it did. I’ll get my next Schott leather this year.
Ordered the 141, Size 44, Brown. Fits perfect, used the online fit recommendation. This jacket is my all time favorite. Had a leather jacket back in school, but nothing like this workmanship and feel. Everytime I wear it, at least one person will ask what I ride, and I tell them I do not own a bike...they respond, "well you got the right jacket if you ever do!" Nothing beats good ole American Craftsmanship. Thanks
FINALLY figured out what to get my son for Christmas and just missed a mailing cut-off. Out of kindness, Schott's customer service representative did something I'd never expect - offered 2 day shipping free of charge. The jacket is beautiful and fit my son perfectly.
Great jacket got it in 4 days
The style and the quality of the leather is top shelf. One issue I have with this jacket is the zipper on the two main pockets. I like the fact they are silver and not brass, but they could be more substantial. I hope they hold up over time? I use these pockets often for keys, ear plugs, and a tire gauge when I ride. At 6’2 225 I was right to get this jacket in the tall size. The inner pocket was a nice bonus. If you had the 141 long in brown it would definitely be a winner.
I deliberated this purchase for a while. You will not be disappointed. This is finest quality leather jacket that hard earned money can buy! The sizing is perfect. Forget measuring your size ....whatever size suit jacket you wear order that size and you can still get a sweatshirt under it comfortably... but a t-shirt will still look great as well!
This jacket is so much fun to wear and play in I give it a 10! very sexy jacket
I bought a Schott Flight jacket mod. 184 25 years ago and it is always in very good condition. When I had to choose a new motorcycle jacket my first idea was ... Schott! I spent hours on Schott's web page and 141 was, for me, the best! I ordered and after 5 days it was delivered to my home. Incredible jacket, very beautiful and comfortable! Thanks Schott NYC!
So I had a long journey before settling with the jacket.
Before anything, I wanted a minimalist jacket that isn't the perfecto style jacket. So I bought the Cafecto because it was different and unique from the others. After getting it, it didn't really meet my expectations. It just didn't look right, especially unzipped. Typically with leather jackets, you want them unzipped for a good look. But with the Cafecto, it couldn't achieve that look. So I ultimately returned it (and lost $10 for the fee).
After doing more research, I settled on a cafe racer. And I wanted it in brown because it works well with my skin tone. The other brown cafe racer jackets wasn't really my kind of brown, whereas the 141 brown was just my style. The brown is so dark that it can pass as black. It's like having two leather jackets in one. So I purchased a Schott 141 in a size 38, as recommended by the fit guide for a standard fit.
I received the jacket and it was great, except for the fact that it didn't fit well. The sleeves ended just at the first knuckle of my thumbs, which isn't what I like. And the length of the jacket reached past my waist. So overall, it was just too large and I have to exchange for a size 36.
After getting the size 36 jacket, I can confidently say that I am happy with the jacket. It doesn't feel too tight on me, nor does it feel like anything's too loose on me. Of course, this means I cannot wear a sweater underneath the jacket, but I'm fine with that. You want to keep the inner wear to a minimum when wearing a leather jacket anyway.
All in all, I highly recommend this jacket if you're shopping for a good leather jacket! If you do decide to get the 141, get the size that will get you a slim fit, otherwise the standard fit.
