    The softest leather you will ever feel in your life.
    Thick and tough yet incredibly supple. I love how easily I can move, and how comfortable I feel. Will definitely keep me warm all year round.
    My only qualm is that it’s a little short; I originally found this jacket used in a medium but it was too short so I ended up getting a size large. I am 6’3, usually wear a medium but a large fit me well with the hip buckles fastened tight. Can’t wait to put some use on this jacket

    I wear an 18/37 dress shirt with 46” chest and wide shoulders. The XXL fits perfectly. A 642 size 48 is a little short in sleeves and tight across my shoulders so I’m thinking that XXL fits like a size 50. I wear 34/36 Levis so I’m hard to fit off the shelf. The leather is incredibly soft the finish is not shiny, more of a matte finish with dark grey highlights. WOWED!!

    I ordered this exquisite jacket back in 12/21 - was delivered in 5/22 and I have never looked forward so much to the cold as I do right now. Description on is website is accurate, but perhaps an understatement of how bad-ass this jacket is.

    My last leather jacket, of a much less premium brand, lasted me about 15 years and I wanted to find a premium product that would last at least that long. Given my assessment of the craftsmanship, materials, and reputation of Schott, I am certain I got the right jacket.

    Customer service was highly responsive, knowledgeable, courteous, and patient with me as I worked through sizing questions and an exchange to get the best fit.

    If I can think of any improvement, it would be if they offered a true 42 instead of a 42-44/L. My build is 42" chest and 32" waist and I am looking for a slim fit. I tried squeezing into a M, and although it fit better around my waistline, my chest is too broad. The L fits perfectly in the chest, but there is excess room in the waist. I may see if I can find a leather worker who can take it in.

    Buy with confidence knowing that the craftsmanship and service are topflight. I look forward to buying additional Schott products in the future.

    I loved this jacket, the thick leather and quality. However, for me, the fit wasn’t quite right for me. I am 6’1” 195 with a 43” chest, and ordered XL (I like loose for layering). The shoulders and arms fit well, I just felt the torso wasn’t quite slim enough feel for myself. I would recommend highly though.

    Love this jacket, it is very heavy with thick leather, but soft and no need to break in. The finish is more matte, and almost a dark gray color which I love. I am 6’1” 195lbs 43”chest and ordered XL, which fits me perfect with some room to layer. Large, for me, would have been too snug. A little too warm for the upcoming summer in Seattle, but look forward to wearing in Fall/winter.

    Jacket took a long time to come but worth the wait (glad I was patient).

    Large was a little snug in the body (I'm 6'0" and weigh 190#). Exchanged it for an XL that fits great.

    This is a damn nice jacket that will get passed down when I am done. I hope that they will appreciate it as much as I do.

    Thanks for a quality made in the USA product!

    I look and feel just like ole' Mad Max wearing this. I'd gladly scrape pavement with it, too. Never wore any thicker leather and a most supple jacket, it is. Sheila wants me for it, but I won't let her near it.

    If you add up all the textile and armor you'll ever get, this turns out cheap over a lifetime.

    I got one of these back in Summer, medium. And one this winter, large. 90-degree heat? It's got ventilation. A front zipper, Adjust four inches down - just nice.

    This along with a kick start for my '72 in front of the dandies? That's the right life.

    This is my third Schott leather jacket, and another pure classic by the legendary manufacturer. I love the simplicity of the design in this model, and on the flip side is very comfortable to wear. Echoing what other’s have said here the leather is the best I have ever felt in person (I’ve had a few leather jackets). It is however ever so slightly more gray (charcoal) in color to my other Schott jackets, but this just adds to its unique charm in my opinion. If your on the fence on this one just bite the bullet - your are unlikely to be disappointed. This one’s a keeper and allows you to fly under the radar, whilst literally wearing the Best there is, and still proudly made in the USA. Perfecto Capeesh!

    Let me try to explain how much I love this jacket.

    Like so many, I gained weight during the pandemic. Enough weight where I couldn’t zip up my medium P693. Now, everyone has reasons they want to lose weight. They want to be healthy. They want to not feel out of breath when doing normal activities. Or, if they’re like me, they want to be able to zip their P693.

    When you spend north of $1000 on a jacket, you’re expecting it to be the best jacket you’ve ever worn. You will not be disappointed. It’s smooth. It’s warm. It’s heavy. It’s strong. It’s Schott quality. It’s luxurious. It’s an investment.

    It’s downright perfect(o)!

    Of course, it’s a Schott Perfecto, so it’s a fun jacket to have but you still will not be prepared for the big s___eating grin that will fatigue your smile muscles every time you pull on this jacket. This matte black Perfecto is beautifully understated with a vibe of mystery. And no worries about your girlfriend making off with it as its heft might well sprain the fair maid’s wrist, heh. Fun aside, though, the craftsmanship and know-how to produce the leather in this jacket and the artistry, integrity and work ethic its construction and fit showcase make you humble and grateful to share and proudly wear this made in the USA gift. My third Schott jacket and I feel really lucky to have this one, I mean really lucky! You have to see this jacket in person to appreciate it fully. Thank you, Schott!
