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.
I've had my Schott 141 on my back for the last 16 years and I still feel as though I made the right choice so long ago. I've worn this jacket on and off a motorcycle , sometimes for weeks at a time and truly feel as though buying this brand and model was one if the best decisions I've made. It still feels and fits great, in fact its gotten better each year. I've had more than one offer to buy it from me on the spot and I'll never let it go.
First motorcycle jacket ever worn. Great fit. Did not go wrong with size 42 ; I'm 5'5", 143 #. Impressed with the hefty weight/feel and clean-cut.
Thank you Schott.
My shape is unusual with 190cm height, a short torso, and monkey arms. This jacket in 44L fits very well at the sleeves and is nice and snug at the chest and hip. My chest is 43 inches so this fits well with another layer, at the hips it fits snugly and lets no air in. Felt comfortable in near freezing temperatures! The only downside of the long size is that it might be too long for me for actual riding, as it bulges up a little if I bend my legs up. But looks great walking the streets of Manhattan!
I am 6'2" and 210 lbs. I wear a 44L jacket and ordered a 44L 141 racer jacket in black. It fits perfectly. This is one of the highest quality products I have ever purchased. Customer service was excellent and it arrived at my house 2 days after purchase. It is very comfortable and has kept me warm riding in December. I just love it.
When I opened the package I was blown away with the look of this jacket. Simply beautiful. The quality is unmatched. Brown cowhide leather with the goldish zippers and hardware are stunning. I ordered a 40, 26" length and the fit is perfect for my 5'8" 165 lbs frame. I like a little extra room in a jacket and this jacket gives me that, but the fit to me is still fitted and slim enough that it doesn't make me look heavier than I am. Jacket length hits me just below the waist which I am happy with. I love the lining insert for a little extra worth, or remove it on a warmer day. The leather is a little stiff at first but has already softened with a few weeks wear.
This is my 4th Schott leather jacket and they just keep getting better and better. I have been riding motorcycles for 40 Years and have had a lifetime search for good riding jackets. While I have had a few that were OK, none of them can compare to Schott. This 141 in brown with brass hardware is just amazing, the leather is so soft yet thick and it felt totally broken in in just a few hours. It is just perfect on the bike and off, I wear it all the time. I am 5'11/212 with no gut and I ordered my normal jacket size of 46 and the fit is perfect.
Since I got a coupon for a 15% discount on my next purchase, I am now thinking I might have to add a 641 to the lineup. Be forewarned, these things are addicting!
this product is fantastic, awesome, I like it!
This year my 141 is 2o years old. I bought it in 1998 and other than some VERY light fading due to age and me having NEVER cleaned or treated the leather, it's practically in perfect shape. ZERO rips, tears, snags, you name it. All the zippers work like new and look new. The old saying "You get what you pay for" definitely applies here. If your budget allows it and you're looking for a jacket that will outlive you....it's Schott all the way!
