be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
this jacket is the bomb. i am. a fairly skinny guy, 5'10, 125lb, lean but with muscle, kinda like bruce lee, also i do martial arts.
man this jacket got me feeling some kind of way, it makes me feel good. it fits like a glove, everything is perfect with a t-shirt underneath.
the quality is good, i got another jacket from farfetch made by some european brands, les hommes, cost over 2000 euro, and this jacket blow that one out of water on everything.
man these guys know what they are doing when it comes to leather jackets.
I grew up in the Northern US, and used to own a standard weight leather jacket, but now I live in the Southeast, so I wanted something a little lighter and the 626 is perfect. The construction is spectacular, and I’ll be able to wear this jacket 3 out of 4 seasons. The zippers are heavy duty, and the sleeve length fits me just right. I highly recommend this if you want something that feels great, looks great, and isn’t too heavy. (It’s still heavy. Just not too heavy.)
I love all the attention I get from this jacket. Random people will stop me to compliment it!
I’m 45 yrs old, weightlifter, 5’9”, 205lbs, 46” chest, 32” waist I went with the XL. It’s a bit tight in my upper back, however, I was worried about going XXL because of the longer sleeves. I feel like in just one night out the XL has stretched slightly to form to my size.
Even though it’s billed as lighter version I believe it’s tough enough to be used for riding.
Schott, you have a customer for life!
I look for any excuse to wear this thing.
Just a tip, it fits a half size small - try on in store or go off the sizing estimator.
This was my fourth leather jacket. High quality jacket, truly soft and fits the body perfectly, L size fit liked a glove.
Looking forward to continue buying more leather jackets from Schott and there is no other better brand!
This jacket is great for someone who can’t wait for a jacket to break in it feel like it already is
Comparing this 626VN to my 118, leather is smooth and soft, feels already broken-in, just need to wear it a few times for the jacket to conform to your body shape. I didn't realize the zippers on the sleeves are at a different position comparing to my 118, they sit slightly more on top as compared to the bottom on my 118. Those zippers also open straight to the arms with no lining under them, again this is new to me as I never owned a 626 before, my only experience is comparing it to my 118.
The jacket is vey good but sleeves is too big
I was a bit on the fence paying $870 for a jacket, especially when it was mail order and I couldn't try it on.
When it came in the mail it was love at first sight!
The craftsmanship was superior to any jacket I've ever owned and the fit was as expected slim and fashionable.
Oh and my wife loves how it looks on me so BIG plus!
The 626VN is best captured in the first two (2) pictures (showing the front and back of the jacket) which boasts its vintaged looks. I'm 6'2" with a 42"inch chest, 193 lbs with broad shoulders and found the XL to fit best for my shoulders. However, the jacket was a bit too big overall in the chest and back, and so decided to size down to the Large which gives a fitted or slimmer fit. The range of mobility is somewhat limited, however I am not using the jacket for riding. I also wouldn't plan to have thick garments under the jacket either - living in South Florida this suits just fine. I was also considering the PER70, but decided against its higher level of vintaging compared to the 626VN. The quality and build is top-shelf. With some wear and stretching the jacket seems to be taking on a good fit.
