be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I bought this jacket for spring/summer/fall riding. Most lighter weight leather jackets are vented, which means air flows into the arms/torso. Venting can be nice in hot months, but too cool in mild months, and frankly chilly on longer rides in any season. This jacket is not vented, which is exactly right for mild but cooler spring and fall riding, and even summer, when too much air flow can be chilly. I am 6’1” 235 and ordered a XXL. The jacket is roomy in a t-shirt, and comfortable over a hoodie, and I like that. I also like the simple, clean style. This is my third Schott jacket. Schott makes a great product, worth every penny. Made in the great USA.
I waited years before pulling the trigger on this jacket. It's perfect, timeless and I love it.
I also have an old Schott jacket I've been wearing for the past 20 years and it still looks brand new
This jacket was my first purchase from Schott and I could not be happier with it. I live on the west coast of Australia, so there are no stockists here to try one on. I am 5’11” (180cm), 176 lbs (80 kg), with a 39” chest. I like a slim fit. The guide recommended a medium. Spot on. It is short, as a motorcycle jacket should be, but not ridiculously so; it sits on my belt at the back. It was shipped within a day of purchase and arrived in a week (that’s very good for down here), carefully packed, on a hanger, stuffed with nice stickers for the kids. My jacket doesn’t look comically ‘vintaged’, as if I was trying to pass it off for a 1950s original. Rather, it looks lived in; not pristine. It’s beautifully soft and comfortable. And as every other reviewer testifies, it smells incredible.
Beautiful design, craftsmanship, leather -- and aroma!. A real treat -- and so nice that it is made in AMERICA! Thank you for all the care and pride obviously put into this jacket.
This is my first Schott Jacket and I love it. I'm 5 ft 7 , 180 lbs, 41 inch chest and I ordered the Large. It fits great with a hoodie. My only personal complaint is I think the sleeves are about 2 inches too long for me. When I'm riding though, the sleeves are at perfect length over my wrists so I'm not sure if they are designed that way for riders (this is a motorcycle jacket after all). Hope this helps anyone.
I own a 530 cafe jacket. Amazing build quality. Like Jose's comment i also wish Schott would offer the perfecto and one star jackets without the belt. Kudos for offering the cafecto.... beautiful jacket without a belt but not everyone wants that style. Times are changing.... keep the traditional but offer options for those who would like something more understated or dont want everything scratched during daily use. Love Schott ....im hunting for my next jacket.
My first Schott, it’s so comfortable, soft and enough thick for everyday.
I’m 46 years old, 5,7 ft tall, 159 lb weight, 39 inch chest and “M” is the correct size, shoulders are ok, I can wear a thin hoodie and it’s the limit of tightening or a tshirt and don’t look loose.
Highly recommend this jacket, I was looking for a classic Perfecto but I don’t like the belt ,for me is un useful and will scratch the gas tank of my bike.
Quality: supreme...is the touch , how it smell, the fit, the color of the skin, the hardware.....
It is a light weight but thick enough to show the quality and good handcrafted.
I will buy a medium or heavy weight if they can make it as soft and comfortable as this.
Don’t think to much, is a extraordinary jacket.
