be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I never write reviews but just had to for this. I’d been eyeing this jacket for over ten years and finally pulled the trigger now that I’m at my brokest and the world is falling apart. SO glad that I did: this jacket is everything that I’d wanted it to be. I won’t try to describe it: I’ll just urge you to find a way to try one on. It’s only in the wearing that you’ll understand.
I fully intend to grow old and die in this jacket.
What can I say? You get what you pay for. Ordered Monday, delivered Friday. I found Jeri Reyes to be a big help with any questions I have a 40" chest at 6'2" and about 175# and the large fit perfectly. Well done Schott! Now I am dressed in American made apparel from head to toe! And that's not a bad way to go!!
I've had this jacket for over a decade now. I wear 2XL and have a 50" chest and 38 waist. True to size. I'm 6'1" and 250 lbs, and I stiil lift weights but not what I used to be. This jacket is the bomb. The metal buttons pop off but I had 100 lbs woven musky fishing line to have them resewn. No issues since then. However, given my size and my stature this might be a specific issue with me. I have a hard time find heavy wear gear. Gail is great at sizing you if you are a bigger male.
Heavy leather like I bought the whole cow.. Feels bulletproof,. Makes you feel bulletproof. Beautiful styling lines with collar down or popped. Does not disappoint.
Heavy, warm and radiating with style, this coat will immediately take its place as a showpiece fashion item. The catalogue photo looks great but when you see this in person and on your shoulders, you see the photo fails to do justice to this fabulous garment. High quality leather, superior crafting and timeless styling make this a stunning addition to any wardrobe.
I now own two Schott jackets and looking at my closet, these make we wonder why I ever bought coats from a department store.
Received my order 90 days after purchase. Ordered when it was on sale then received a notice it was back ordered etc...Perhaps that explains the delay. YET; this item is absolutely insane. Am 5 foot 10, 210 lbs and 46-48 chest, So the XL fits perfectly.
This jacket is thick, durable and has a very nice shine . The quality of the garment is outstanding, just like all Schott items . The cut is timeless, fits like a glove. This jacket can withstand any kind of weather. Be one of a kind with this superior leather jacket with military style. Lead from the front with this double breasted body armor.. Dare to own this amazing jacket.
I have had this jacket for a couple of seasons now and it is absolutely fantastic. The first day I wore it, I received a compliment from a woman I passed coming up the stairs from the 14th street station on the 8th avenue line. I have received numerous comments from then on (especially from the wife; it revs her motor whenever I slip this jacket on). This is a very stylish jacket. The construction is superb and it continues to hold up well. The fit is true and the jacket fits like a glove. Take from a real native New Yorker, this jacket is totally worth the coin.
I live in a Rocky Mountain climate - wind, snow, rain -- hot days of summer - cold nights year round - and can confirm that this jacket is the best I've ever owned. Strong enough for the roughest weather - yet stylish to the max - and always look good. Takes a while to break the leather in - but when it does - it is a great fit - and it will last a lifetime and beyond. Another great product - from a great American company. Thanks for keeping the spirit alive and well.
I've been wanting one of these coats for some time and finally jumped in. Ordered on Thursday, coat arrived on Monday. All I can can is WOW! This is one fabulous coat - leather is wonderful, near perfect fit. I usually wear a 42 Long but got the XL since this is a slim fit. Coat fits well in torso and sleeves are just long enough. The coat is very heavy and I think I look pretty darn good in it. I'm rather tall so I can carry off the look of a double breasted coat. I can't wait until the weather cools - this heavenly coat is going to get lots of face time in public.
Free delivery and fast! Ordered Monday, wore it Friday. From New York to Blaine WA during a major snow storm! Very cool jacket!. My wife’s comment: “It’s a chick-magnet”. I’m okay with that. :-) As for the leather, not too heavy, medium weight. Nice shiny leather with lots of fine natural cowhide grain. Quite soft too, buttons are easy to undo and do up. Sturdy smart looking buttons. (Although I replaced mine with genuine Canadian Navy brass buttons - now the jacket is super-cool). My chest measures 43”, I ordered size L and the fit is perfect. Awsome jacket for walk-abouts if you don’t own a submarine Many thanks Schott.
