    Really glad I visited the San Francisco store, I was able to compare each of the Perfecto options they had in stock. Once I put on the 618HH, I knew my mind was made up.

    I'm 6'0 and about 150lbs, normally fitting nicely in a 36. If you're looking to put a layer in besides a t-shirt, take Schott's advice and go a size up. The 36 was snug - looked slick, but I knew I wouldn't be able to layer into it.

    I ended up taking a 38, the fit feels perfect and versatile. The 618 lands right where I want the length of my leather jacket.

    The horsehide selection is A+, beautiful cuts that are consistent and luminous.

    I absolutely love the sheen of the horsehide leather on the 618HH. Denise was so amazing, as I returned the 613H and ordered the 618HH, and had Denise add the stars on the epaulettes. It came out amazing, as I really love the "one star" look. The steerhide is nice, but it was too matte for my liking. If you are thinking between horsehide or the steerhide/cowhide, the horsehide is the way to go.

    Great jacket, but it really does run small. I'm a 37 and had to go up to a 40 because the 38 was just too tight

    If we were talking about anime, the 618hh jacket would be what the protagonist wears in his/her ultimate (strongest) form!

    Absolute perfecto!

    This is the second 618hh I have: one size 40 for layering during the colder weather and one size 38 for just over a T-shirt during the warmer months. Either way, it can be badass and/or super chic!

    It’s the perfect jacket. I ordered the 618 model, horse hide size 46. I wanted it a little loose so I can wear a hoodie under it. I am 5’11 and 165 lbs. The size they recommended was right on. A 44 would be just right, and form fitting for me, but the 46 gives that extra room I wanted. These guys know their business. I was expecting some blemish or irregularities as is usual when you don’t buy at a brick and mortar store but there was nothing but perfection right out of the box. The leather is thick and man is it rich! The horse hide is no joke. Italian leather at its best. American quality craftsmanship on top of that. Every stitch and every seem is perfect. All the hardware and very detail...perfect. If you are thinking about it, and are having second thoughts because of the price, just save a little longer. You are making a correct decision with this investment. I am too poor to buy cheap clothes!. It’s solid. I am very happy with my purchase.

    I was very disappointed to see Schott no longer puts the American flag tag in their 618hh. All this talk and hype about being an American icon and they remove the Old Glory tag from their jackets? What gives? It is replaced with a "made of USA and imported materials" tag. This is VERY upsetting to me.

    On to the reason I gave it a 2 star rating Instead of a 1.

    The jacket arrived in 2 days as expected. Customer service was very helpful. The Quality of the jacket is great. This is a SERIOUS motorcycle jacket. This is NOT a fashion jacket. Don't complain about longer sleeves, underarm footballs,and stiff leather. Schott makes poser jackets for that. This jacket is made to throw a leg over a shovelhead and see where it takes you.

    I am 5'10" and 200lbs. I have a 44" chest and I ordered a 46. I have plenty of room to layer and I might have been able to get away with a 44, not sure. The 46 fits pretty good.

    I would return this great MOTORCYCLE jacket, but I didn't notice the missing flag until after I removed the tags from the jacket. Do the RIGHT thing Schott, BRING BACK THE FLAG!!!!

    Response from Schott NYC: First and foremost we are happy that you like the jacket. We wish we could put the American flag in this particular jacket too, but since there is no source for horsehide in the USA we need to import the horsehide from Italy. As a result we must call it Made in USA of imported materials. If you want a Made in USA jacket we make this same exact jacket in USA steerhide style 618 or USA naked cowhide style 118. From time to time we have Made in USA horsehide jackets from a USA tannery, but these are only available on a limited basis.

    The 618 HH is a phenomenal classic motorcycle jacket. The quality is unsurpassed. However, I ordered my usual jacket size 38 instead of going up a size as recommended. The jacket was too tight. I'm in the process of doing an exchange, and decided to go with the 603 Cafecto. Slightly less heavy but still the classic lines. I'm looking forward to getting it! Customer service was excellent, too!

    This is my 3rd leather jacket I’ve purchased from Schott. It is my absolute favorite! The quality is amazing as always. I just wish the sleeves were a inch shorter on my coat, then it would be perfect. You definitely won’t regret your purchase!

    I’ve had many asymmetrical biker jackets in the past but have had many complaints about quality of leather, durability and overall aesthetic. This horsehide perfecto is just that - perfect in all those categories. I’ve only received it a week or so ago and the leather will take at least a few months to break in. But I’m dedicated to the process, and once it does it’s gonna be a perfect leather jacket that’ll last a lifetime with minimal maintenance. Might even outlive me!!
    I’m 5’11 and 130 pounds and I usually wear a 38. I know it was recommended to size up but being a skinny dude I stuck with my size and was not disappointed. I can wear it with a t-shirt or layer up with a light sweater.

    Cheers from New Jersey!!

    There is not much to say about it but that : BAD ASS. It'a above my expectations. Beware of one thing about its sizing : It's recommended to take one size up as it is slim fit, but I disagree. I am a size 38-40, I wanted slim fit and that's what I got with 38. It's not snug wearing a t-shirt, and wearing a hoodie is possible while not feeling constricted. To me, it's slim/true to size. Besides that, It' shinny beautiful, see-my-butt short and smells awsome.
