be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I don't know what else to say. It's incredible.
Unbelievably beautiful. Fit and finish amazing, sizing chart was accurate. I am 6 ft250 lbs, jacket is snug on the beer belly otherwise shoulders and arm length great. Despite being almost 60 this jacket works as an everyday wear. Surprisingly warm with cotton liner, glad I didn't get the 118 , would have been cooking in the fall and spring.
This is my first Schott MC jacket. I'm 5'8" and weigh 140. The jacket fit perfectly and the quality is excellent. Beautiful jacket!
I am 6'2 180lbs. I got a medium for a slim type fit. This jacket is ridiculous.. "Perfecto"
If you want to look killer at concerts, this is your jacket. If you want to look like a rockstar, this is your jacket. I have three shot jackets. A 234, a per 70, and a 626. If you want one that looks aged and worn get the per 70, otherwise get the 626. Both have a slimmer fit. Both of these jackets are great because they don't have underarm footballs which mess up the aesthetic. So glad I have a 626.
Strangely enough, the women's 626 doesn't have buy swing arms, but the women's 626 VN does, the men's 626 VN does not have by swing arms. So if you want by swing arms and you're a dude, get the 626. If you're a woman get the 626vn. I got my girlfriend a 626 VN and she loves it. I love my 626 and feel like it's the best offering from shot if you want the quintessential look and jacket. I can't wait to go to some concerts and for the cooler weather to return.
Killer fit and look!
Follow the size guide for an awesome fit.
I went with a medium. I am tall at 6'2" and 180lbs. It fits great and looks awesome without any bulkiness. The leather is really nice and the stitching and detail is spot on.
If you're a musician, this jacket is great for stage use and looks very rock and roll. Best jacket for going to concerts as well.
Their slim fitting jackets like the Per70 and the 626 are meant for slender type folks, if that is you, then this is your jacket.
(On a side note) Schott flip flopped the bi-swing feature offered between their men's and women's jackets. The women's 626vnw has bi-swing arms but the 626w doesn't. In men's the 626 has bi-swing arms and the 626vn does not. I got my girlfriend a 626wvn also and she love it. It's her first leather jacket, She is petite and I got her a small. Both of our jackets have the same features but hers has a vintaged finish. The 626 is totally Badass.
If you want to look cool at ALL concerts and everywhere you go, then you owe it to yourself to get a Schott 626 or Per70.
If you want the best fitting biker jacket for looking awesome at concerts, this is it. I am 180lbs, 6'2" tall and not overweight. The guide said to get a medium. It is perfect. I also got a Per70 not long ago in a Large and it's great but the fit on the 626 is divine. The classic 626 has the bi-swing back with no underarm footballs and is perfect. I can still fit a hoodie on if I wanted to. The fit feels tailored and it looks really good. Don't worry, it's not terribly shiny, and some of the shine will wear off after breaking in. Anyway, this is the quintessential looking and fitting jacket with all the bells and whistles. Flannel lining, belt, epaulets, coin pocket, full panels of leather. The only thing I would change if I was designing it would be to locate the sleeve zippers more on the top or side rather than underneath (just for looks). This jacket is SICK. If you aren't overweight, this is the model to order unless you are an actual biker and wanted something thicker. Though I would think one could totally ride in this jacket especially in the less colder months. This jacket will be perfect for going to concerts or for stage use too (if you're in bands like I am). Trust the size chart. Also this jacket isn't squaky like my per70 (the collar makes hella squeaks, I'll need to hit it with a little talcum powder.) The Per 70 is a ridiculously badass jacket too, I should have kept the medium and not exchanged it for a large, although it fits great too, just not as snug and fitted, but still has a fitted look and not that boxy gut on other models. I recommend both of these jackets. The 626 has shinier hardware than the per70. All in all, I will be wearing the effing crap out of this jacket in all but the coldest months with the Per70 and 234 thrown in the rotation here and there. I think the 626 will be my main go to biker jacket for life. Thank You Schott. It arrived in 3 days.
great fit, posture and quality of the leather and the lining.
The jacket I wanted all my life! It got delivered here in Canada and i couldn't take it off. Very light, silky inside, not over warming. Perfect for motorcycle. Thank you SCHOTT! you hit it out of the park!
Perfect for Florida motorcycling fro Fall to Spring. I am happy that I purchased it.
The leather used to make the jacket is absolutely stunning, soft and overall not heavy on the shoulders. Even the collar feels soft and warm against the neck and easily bends around your neck, instead of trying to push your neck forwards like some of the really heavyweight leather jackets. The cut and design is wonderful, as some who is tall and a narrow cut it fits really well with plenty of room to move. Without a huge unwanted gut, that seems to be built into so many jackets once the size goes over medium.
The only room for improvement would be using a natural material to line inside the sleeves, the polyester lining while durable leaves much to be desired.
