be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I live in south Texas. The weather here changes every 15 minutes it seems. This jacket is thick but still feels like no leather jacket I’ve ever worn. It stays cool and Feels great. A lot of motorcyclists don’t wear leather here for more than 2 months out of the year. This jacket stays cool and would save a lot of skin.
I'm a 44yo and have never owned a proper leather jacket. I've always thought they wouldn't work for my personal style (I'm typically a peacoat/trench/field/flight jacket guy). Finally decided to take the chance, and after looking at styles and brands, decided on Schott. I'd actually first been looking at a cafe racer jacket, figuring it'd suit me better - but then something inside said if I was already trying something new, I may as well step all the way out of my comfort zone. I am so glad I did, bc the 626 is AWESOME.
I'm 6'1, 215-220lbs, 46 chest, broad shoulders/pretty athletic build. Though some reviews suggest sizing down, the Schott size assist advised getting an XL, so I went with that. The jacket arrived today, and is freaking beautiful!! The leather is robust/thick, unexpectedly soft & (thankfully) not nearly as shiny as some pics make it look, rich deep black, and the zips/appointments are all VERY well done. Overall craftsmanship is superb, and you can tell immediately. The fit is snug around my shoulders and arms - as it should be for a slimmer fit - but not overly restrictive. I'm sure as I wear the hell out of it, it'll loosen up and mold perfectly to my shape, as well as develop some great character. VERY satisfied customer, thank you!!
After looking at the sizing guides I went with a Medium. I’m 6’1” and 170lbs. The jacket couldn’t have fit better. It exceeded my expectations and I’m thrilled with the purchase. After wearing it for a week or so it’s already forming to my body and the leather is relaxing. I plan to have it the rest of my life. If you want the best you got to pay for the best.
The quality and fit of this jacket are so amazing. I have an original Perfecto jacket (I swear it weighs 80 lbs!) and also bought a Cafe Racer style jacket from Schott last year. But, I was looking for a bad ass jacket that I could wear in the spring and early fall as well because the other jackets are on the heavier side.
I’m a bigger guy who’s built like a linebacker at 6’1” and 265 lbs. I went with the website’s recommendation of buying a XXXL even though I usually wear an XXL. The jacket fits perfectly. Everyone should buy this jacket for the warmer weather- you will not be disappointed!
This is actually 6/5 stars but I'm taking one off because I put it on and then remember I drive a Toyota Corolla
6"2 / 180 lb / 38.5 chest and wearing size M jacket
Loves the jacket, ordered a small but thought a medium would be better. Communication and shipping was fast and easy. Would order for you again.
I've owned a few Perfectos over the years - some 118's, a 618, a PER70 and the 626VN. I still have the 626VN but sold the rest. The 118's were too boxy, the 618 too short and I just didn't like the PER70. The 626VN looks great but I'm very finicky and am not a fan of the zip placement on the sleeves. What I always wanted was a more sleek and somewhat longer version of the 118. The 626 fits the bill in every respect. The XL comes with a 27 inch back length which is exactly what I wanted. Zips on the sleeves to the back with gussets (unlike the 626VN) and the bi-swing back panels make it a more comfortable jacket than its vintaged first cousin. Actually, the lack of sleeve gussets and and bi-swing back panels were little niggles I had about the the 626VN. This is my second 626 as the first one I bought had a high gloss finish. The second one, the one I'm reviewing now has more of a sheen than a high gloss. I hate high gloss! So another win. I swapped out the buckle for a buckle I took from a 118 and stuck a couple of stars on the epaulettes and now it's everything I was looking for. Now if only I could stop sniffing it! God I love the smell of leather!!
First of all I thank you for the quick delivery! I did not expect that it will work really so quickly because of Corona crisis.
I am actually mid aged woman who loves mens´ motorcycle jacket. Hence, my review will not correspond to the "average" customer´s review.
But anyway, I love this jacket although the sleeves are bit too long for me; but most of the jackets have sleeves which are too long for me.... So please do not mind.
I hope you will survive the Corona crisis!
This was my first schott jacket, I reviewed several posts and used the size guide to determine fit. I am 40 years old fairly fit, 6 ft 210 lbs, 42 inch chest, size 35 jeans. The jacket fits snug in shoulders and underarms, not tight. Chest and abdomen have about an inch of play when zipped, just right, if I ordered medium it would be too tight in the pits. I am able to cross arms and its snug. If there was one drawback it would be that the sleeves are slightly longer than I would like, no big deal. Definitely worth it, absolutely great jacket. Shipping was speedy amd arrived without problem. The reviews are accurate, great American company.
This jacket is sweet went with 3xl and was a little to loose for my taste off the bat. The brown is rich and the cowhide has a beautiful texture to it. Return was quick and hassle free. My third jacket and I and very pleased yet again.
