be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
it cost almost all my paycheck, but it was worth every penny.. because you're not just buying a simple leather jacket... you're buying a legendary jacket of the highest quality. This is almost a second skin for me, I use it for all events!
Since I started shopping around for a leather jacket to update my wardrobe, I thought it would be worth it to save up the money and go for the real deal. I did some research and I came across the brand Schott NYC and figured I'd give them a try. I went to a men's fashion store to see if they had any Schott Perfectos in stock which they didn't at the time (this was in October of 2021). I asked the manager to order me a model 618. He measured my chest size which is 44 inches and he recommended a size 46. I opted against the size 46 because I wanted a more tailored look. As soon as the jacket arrived and I tried it on the first time, it was a little stiff, but the jacket fits like a glove! Now that I have worn the 618 throughout fall, frequently in winter when it wasn't too cold and throughout the majority of spring, the jacket has broken in beautifully and was perfect. It's now starting to build some character. I then decided to get another leather jacket that was meant for warmer weather and already had that aged look. I stumbled across the 626VN and ordered the size Schott NYC recommended for me (XL). When I received the jacket and tried it on, the jacket fits like a glove in all of the right spots and it just looked absolutely killer! The only downside to this jacket I have to say for me is the sleeves are just slightly too long for my arms. I would say if the sleeves were maybe just a little shorter by at least an inch or two for my arm length, it would be perfect. Other than that, this is a solid piece in my wardrobe! I won't buy a leather jacket from any other brand except Schott NYC. They do not skip out or cut corners when it comes to quality control! Schott NYC, I think you make the best, most killer, most badass leather jackets out there, period!
Thought about it for years, finally pulled the trigger and couldn't be happier. Their quality products put the bad in badass. Arrived in only a couple days and the jacket is perfect. The pockets all around are even better and bigger than I expected. Fit is perfect and as it breaks in, gets more and more comfortable and form fitting. Get one now -
I’m really not sure how to articulate the magic of this jacket. I had high expectations, and it greatly exceeded them. It’s heavy, well made, and beautifully detailed. Schott’s legacy speaks for itself. And this jacket is truly a work of art befitting that legacy. Not to mention, excellent customer service. Which is rare these days. The prospect of what the jacket costs was a bit overwhelming at first, but having received it i simply couldn't be happier. You get what you pay for. Do yourself a serious favor.
perfect in every way. Fit was spot on. Customer service was exceptional. So stoked to finally have a Perfecto. The Gold standard.
if your thinking about this jacket. just pull the trigger and pull in to sickest jacket your hard earned money can buy. Cheap knock-offs be damned!
I just wanted to give you a heads up on my experience with the 626VN.
If you're here and considering buying a Schott jacket, you already know their reputation how well they're made.
You wanna know the fit, right?
I'm in my mid-fifties, 5'10", about 190 pounds (with a bit of a gut), and I usually wear a size "large." After reading the other reviews, I decided to size up to an "Extra Large" and I couldn't be happier. The jacket fit me perfectly, with enough room if I gain a few or lose a few pounds.
I know these are expensive jackets, but they are worth it. It'll last forever.
I selected the free shipping option and the jacket arrived 3 days early in Seattle.
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.
