be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I think I got the last brown XL jacket....nice!
Initial quality looks good and the jacket certainly smells wonderful. I am 6'2 and usually wear 44 chest jackets and the XL fits quite well. I have long arms, and this size fits well here.
As another person noted, the diagonal zipper is only slightly diagonal once you wear it, but no problem.
The leather is quite stiff but I was surprised at how light it is. For example, I have a 141 jacket in 44L cowhide that is much, much heavier in comparison. So I think the perfect season for this jacket is Autumn or early Spring.
Very happy, it's expensive but hopefully lasts a lifetime.
This is the jacket I have dreamed of for years. Beautifully made, amazing leather, and a subtle design without the flashy chrome snaps and epaulets that have always turned me off in similar jackets. Truly breaks my heart that the cut just doesn't fit me - too tight across the shoulders and too loose around the hips. Wish I could exchange my body for one that would fit this masterpiece.
I absolutley love this jacket. It fits will and keeps me pretty warm. I am able to walk around 34 degree weather and still keep warm. The only con I have with this jacket is(and I am really nitpicking here and I dont know if this my fault) that as i broke in the jacket the signature slanted zipper became less pronounced and straightened out a little. I dont know if this is like this because the way I broke the jacket in or it just naturally becomes less pronounced over time. Either way love the jacket and would recommend.
My vintage perfecto was stolen a few years ago and I wasn't sure I could still pull off the whole belt / epaulet thing at my age. But part of me was still grieving the loss of the jacket I'd worn for decades.
I saw this clean perfecto come out in a limited edition horsehide and thought it might be the perfect compromise.
I love it--it's exactly what I wanted. The lack of extras and the black hardware makes it sleeker and somehow more grown up.
The leather is quite stiff to start but it's so well made that, barring another theft, it should be the last Perfecto I ever need.
I am 5' 11' and 155 lbs and bought the small. It's perfect.
Schottnyc makes the best quality leather jackets you will ever purchase. I simply found the jacket I wanted and put my personal attributes and I was recommended the size Large being that I’m 6’3 and 185 pounds. The jacket fits awesome and has enough room to fit a hoodie or sweatshirt underneath, also I love the classic all black look to it! The price is enough to dent your back account but it’s well worth the money for a USA made garment and that will never loose its style!
And I received it 3 days after ordering!
I would highly recommend this item to anyone, just make sure you choose wisely on purchasing a high price item online. Make sure you are happy before buying.
Absolutely fascinating color (brown). Real quality jacket. Jacket has beautiful pattern. Looks premium, feel premium. Very thick and heavy leather. Just quality thing. You don't buy it every day, just once in a lifetime.
I have a Schott 613HH in black. I love the jacket and receive compliments on it every time I wear it The size 44 is a slim fit and fits me perfectly. When the chance to buy a limited edition brown HH came out I balked at the price,but purchased it in brown. Basically the LE HH is the same jacket as my black HH, without all the metal MC belt,stars,and regalia. Only real complaints are one the large vs the 44 size is a similar fit,but the LE not as fitted on me as the size 44 black jacket. Two it is a very pricey jacket in my way of thinking. I do get compliments on this new jacket every time I wear it. The leather is gorgeous and I am not sorry that I bought it even if it is an expensive purchase. I love the Horse Hide jackets from Schott. Keep up the good work Guys,Made in the USA.
The jacket is obviously made of beautiful leather with a wonderful aroma. Fantastic quality. Great looks. After wearing the jacket around the house and still being concerned how stiff it was, I decided to bite the bullet and wear It on a ride on my motorcycle. That was enough to convince me. I’m super impressed with the jacket and am convinced it will get better and better with time. It’s a keeper.
I've purchased high-quality leather jackets previously in Europe and South America but I was never impressed with anything sold in the USA as most are made in China nowadays. That is until I found Schott's offerings. And the calf leather jackets made in Italy are great but a bit delicate for my taste. The Horween Chromexcel #8 is simply one of the greatest leathers money can buy and helps make this exclusive Perfecto jacket one-of-a-kind. It's definitely pricey but it's meant to last a lifetime and worth every penny. Now the fun part begins, breaking her in. :-)
I've been hoping for a jacket which could be a lifetime "signature" jacket for me. But most jackets online are cheap and not created well. And most other jackets with some uniqueness would make you look like you're heading to Comicon dressed as Cosplay. Not this bad boy. Now to get to work breaking it in.
