I bounce from working and living in Hong Kong to riding all summer in the Dakotas. I was really looking for a jacket that I could wear in both places/worlds; one that would function and protect while on a motorcycle but be fitted enough not to look ridiculous when out with the snooty, self-proclaimed 'fashionistas' of the city. This jacket is exactly what I was looking for, a true classic, updated!
I originally ordered a 613 but found the cut a bit too baggy for me, especially in the arms. The 626 is perfect. The only concern I have is that this would not be an ideal jacket for cold weather riding: the arm zippers are not backed with a leather flap (like the 613) so they will let some air by, and, because it is fitted, it would be difficult to wear multiple layers underneath. For me though, those aren't concerns.
Finally, the only downside I can think of is that because it is fitted, I too will have to keep fit. If I get fat, I will need to buy a new size!
Ordered the vintage cowhide motorcycle jacket 626VN online on a Saturday from Dallas, Texas. Order was filled and shipped that Monday per the email Schott sent me and I received the jacket the following Thursday. I usually take a size medium in a jacket or coat (40R), so that's what I ordered. Medium in this jacket was extremely snug (uncomfortably snug), so I filled out the return form which came with the jacket, packed it back in the box without removing the tags as instructed, and mailed it back to Schott the following day (Friday). I received an email the next Wednesday informing me the replacement jacket had shipped and it arrived the next Saturday. The large size fits fine. The jacket is exactly as I expected; the quality of the leather, the stitching, snaps and zippers are all very good, and of course it looks great. I wanted a lighter weight jacket and one I wouldn't have to spend a lot of time breaking in. This jacket should fit the bill.
Hello From France
I just don't know how to describe this jacket. It fits perfectly even on first wearing.
The vintaged process is just perfect, this jacket looks like it was worn for years.
The leather is soft and the inner coton lining is warm, let you move easily and have a really good looking .
It's my first real Schott "perfecto" i've some other brand leather jackets but no one is like this one and i already plan to buy an other A 118 i think.
Only warning make sur to order the good size if you want to wear it with heavy sweater. I'm 5,9' tall and 50" chest and It's most use for me with light shirts. With heavy pullover or other i'm little tight. But with t-shirts or light sweater "i'm home"
Thanks again and i see you for my next jacket
Customer Service was great Jacket came n just a few days Is wonderful,my son loves it Thanks
was hesitant about ordering a fitted jacket because I was afraid I wouldn't get the proper fit. of course you can always send it back for an exchange or refund if it doesn't fit but I find it a hassle in having to do that thru the mail. boy was I wrong. I'm 5 ft 11 in tall and weigh 175 lbs. I ordered a large and it fits me perfect. nice and snug (not tight) doesn't restrict my movements what so ever. the leather is nice and soft. very subtle but rugged at the same time. I have received many compliments on this jacket from both men and women. it just looks expensive. have owned several leather jackets so I know what to look for as far as quality. this is quality...
Schott really needs to get this jacket back into production. The leather is broken in perfectly. It looks like I've been wearing it for 20 years. If this jacket was next to a typical Schott Perfecto I think most people would choose the Vintage. It is tight though. I wear an off the rack 40R and the large is very snug on me. Not tall....5'10 175. Like I said its tight but an XL would be to long in the sleeves and body. GREAT jacket.
