    Leather Type, Fit and Construction:

    Our classic café racer is a true four season riding jacket. Customer demand has kept this design in constant production for over forty years. We know you will agree that it is our most versatile leather jacket! The Model 141 leather jackets for men are made with U. S. sourced, chrome-tanned, drum dyed, heavyweight naked leather. This hide has a softer "hand" when compared to our steerhide and a matte finish. It is chrome tanned and processed to provide many years of use without the need for treatments or conditioners. Right out of the box this jacket will feel like it was custom made for you.

    Schott NYC uses heavyweight naked cowhide to help your leather jacket become your "second skin". Motorcycle jackets need to be as tough as the people wearing them. For wind protection and added warmth the 141 features an inside wind flap under the main zipper, a zip out pile lining and zippered sleeve cuffs. Our bi-swing back panels and under arm footballs ensures that this jacket moves with you eliminating that restrictive feel often found with other leather motorcycle jackets. Nickel plated brass hardware complete this timeless American made classic that is built to last a lifetime.

    As with all leather jackets, Schott only uses the best, highest quality leather available. In the same tradition started in the late 1920’s, highly skilled workers hand-cut each panel for the model 141. Available in both regular and long sizes we often suggest this model for our taller customers. Offered in sizes 32 to 54 in regular and 36 to 54 in long we are confident one of these regularly stocked sizes will fit. Schott sells this leather jacket model true to size, if you wear a 42 suit jacket simply order a size 42 and you will even have room for a sweatshirt underneath for those colder days. Of course this is just our best recommendation, as always we suggest you carefully check our sizing diagrams and measurements to determine best fit.

    The Schott Model #141 is still proudly made in the U.S.A. Our customers know that the quality and construction of our jackets are unparalleled. From the heavyweight thread we use to the strong American hands that do the crafting. We build our leather motorcycle jackets to the same indestructible standards as the old style leather medicine balls. One-hundred plus years of being the best is your assurance that Schott Brothers stands behind every jacket we make.


    The Cafe Racer leather jacket design that became mainstream in the 1960's was developed in England. As soldiers were returning home after WWII they caught the bug of souping up older, prewar motorbikes. These motorcycles were raced between local pubs and cafes which created the need for a streamlined, minimalist leather racing jacket. Traveling at times in excess of 100 MPH was a fairly dangerous proposition on the roads that were more like trails at the time. Heavy horsehide and of course a strong main zipper added a certain level of protection for these speed happy daredevils. One would imagine there were wagers made and records set during these early cafe racing days.

    Schott Brothers has produced a café racer leather motorcycle jacket since we produced model 666 RS for Beck in 1956. It was called a "Leather Racing Shirt" and cost $28.95 at the time. Schott also marketed our own racing jacket as the model 641XX. In the early days these leather jackets had symmetrical zippered pockets on the chest, an adjustable snap collar strap and zippered sleeve cuffs. As they were worn and abused many examples found today are missing any signs of the original inside linings.

    Rooted in tradition, the Schott Model 141 continues this cafe racer style from the 50's. Based on these early leather motorcycle jacket café racer designs the 141 has changed ever so slightly. We feel our updates have made a legendary design better and even more versatile. Schott continues production of the Café Racer motorcycle jacket style, as always, right here in the U.S.A, with a Schott family member hands on in the factory every single day.

    Great leather great jacket. Fits a little tight with the liner in, but it’s good when I remove it. I live in Texas so it should be fine. I’m afraid if I went up a size sleeves would be to long.

    This is a high quality leather jacket. I'm a motorcycle rider and it fits perfectly when standing or when my arms are extended to reach the bike grips. I'm 6'0", 200lbs, with a 44.5 inch chest. I bought a 44 and it fits just right...a snug but comfortable motorcycle fit. I can wear it with the nice liner zipped into it, and I can also wear another thin motorcycle liner-type jacket under it and it's still comfortable and warm on 50 degree days. With the liner zipped out, it's comfortable on 70 degree days. I'm very happy with this jacket. I've got other motorcycle jackets but this is definitely my favorite. The Schott's quality is so good, I've decided I'm going to buy a lighter weight street jacket. If you want a high quality leather jacket, I don't think you can go wrong buying a Schott's jacket.

    I’m 6’1” 260lbs with a 48” chest and I ordered the 50 tall. It fits great just the right length. Would probably have to pull the liner to wear a hoodie under.

    I'm not using this jacket for motorcycle riding. I wanted a longer length. I'm 6foot 3inches 245 pounds and most of my weight is in my belly. I measured my chest size at 49 but I'm not sure that's accurate. I have a size 50 long and a size 48 long. Neither one is a very tight fit but the size 50 is looser. There is room with the size 50L to pretty much put as many layers as I want to underneath. I haven't tried putting layers under the 48L. I love them both. If I had to choose between the two I think I would choose the 48L. I hope this helps.

    If you’re looking for a leather jacket as far as I’m concerned there’s only one place to buy it and that’s Scott’s Leather , the best workmanship and leather there is no other place

    I had been looking at the 141 for a while and struggled with the price. I’m 6’2” with a 37” sleeve so I knew I needed the long. I’m typically a 44L in suits. The salesperson was extremely patient and honest with me. He said the 44 was good but would stretch a little. The 42 was snug but would be a second skin once I broke it in. I went with the 42L and it was the best decision. The jacket fits great with a t shirt or a hoody. I can dress it up, dress it down, it always looks good. I’ve had it a year now and still treat it like I just got it. Best money I’ve spent in a long time. The leather quality, hardware and craftsmanship are top notch. I’m waiting for the custom ordering to reopen so I can get a navy jacket.

    I’ve had several leather jackets through the years, including a couple +$400 Harley jackets that I thought were my favorites...until I put this on. Believe me, I had a hard time pulling the trigger on twice the $$$ compared to every other jacket I’ve had, but holy shit this Is one of those things that if you can afford it; don’t talk yourself out of it. This is one bad ass, heavy duty, well made, heirloom quality jacket. I really wish I would’ve known about Schott 30 years ago, still kind of surprised I never had, but pretty sure I never would’ve bought another. This jacket is that nice! I am 5-10, 185#, 43” chest, 32” waist and the 44reg fit perfect out of the box. Now I’m never a big fan of the removable liners, so with that removed it fits perfect to me...hangs right, room to move but not baggy at all, and room for a hoodie or something thick underneath if needed, I’ve never had a jacket before that fit right with just a t-shirt, but also had room for a couple layers, but take out the liner, and this punches that ticket. The liner is extremely warm, so a long sleeve T-shirt will be all you ever want under it anyway, which fits well but layers may start to get a little tight. The quality of the leather and Craftsmanship are understated if you’ve never had a jacket of this quality before....just a super, well made jacket that will out live you, and God forbid, keep the road off you if you find yourself horizontal. I ordered the standard length 26”, and I briefly considered exchanging for the longer 28” version, because I was use to the longer kidney protection cuts in the back. But bear in mind that this jacket screams biker, and for my height, the longer length is unnecessary and would change the style I think.,In my opinion, if your taller than 5-10 then maybe the 28” will be something you should consider.? The ONLY thing I would recommend to Schott, is to offer a couple different zipper options. An antique looking brass on the black jackets, or even a silver that was less shiny would look great.... but that’s just me not liking super new, shiny though; unless it’s on the bike. I figure time and wear will tone it down before too long. Hope this helps for sizing questions someone reading this may have, because honestly, you’ll see that the price is right once you put it on!

    This company and it's products are the standard in leather today. American Made. Quality Craftsmanship. I need the extra 2 inches in length for coverage while riding on my 73 BMW cafe racer. Not disappointed and you won't be either.
