    I bought the jacket online, the fit was perfect, no issues, it’s a well built tough jacket, my first Schott leather jacket. Before this I used to buy cheap leather jackets, I won’t be making that mistake again. I will definitely buy another Schott leather jacket.

    Love my new jacket! Fit is perfect. Leather is thick but soft enough for comfort. Very solid build.

    Just receive this jacket and haven’t wore it outside yet . I ordered one too large trying to find the right fit and a size smaller was just right. Customer service handled my exchange in a timely manner with excellent knowledge about fitting and procedures. My first take on the jacket is the quality is over the top and it should last a lifetime. Price was more than I wanted to pay but to get a leather jacket like this you will have to invest in longevity and good quality at this price .

    This is my first leather jacket and it’s just what I was looking for. It fits me great (5’ 11” 180# ordered a large) and feels awesome. I thought the 135 would be the one for me so I ordered both but after trying them on I knew right away this was the one. This has a much more fitted look and contours to my body much better.

    One thing though...what’s up with the lining? Mine is different than the photos. It’s a dark orangish brown with these little red berry flower things and twigs. It doesn’t really matter since it’s on the inside but it just seems odd.

    Again this jacket is killer though. Customer service was great too. Last thing, if you’re not feeling the chains on the breast pockets you can just unzip them and tuck the chains inside the pocket and zip it back up. Took me about 40 hours to think of that so figured I’d post it here haha. Thanks.

    Recently purchased this jacket after lurking around it for a month. Price is a consideration but this garment is the real deal. I had not one bit of the classic buyer's disappointment, when you get something and it doesn't quite measure up to your expectations/hopes.

    It is well made of top quality materials and was a joy to put on. I look forward to many years of wear.

    On another note your service was also excellent. I was dubious about your sizing recommendation which was for an XL when I am usually a large. I bought the XL and the fit is as I want it. I ordered the jacket on a Monday , it arrived Wednesday afternoon. Thanks again from a happy customer.

    This is a fabulous jacket. I have never used the word "fabulous" before regarding any leather jacket I own (5). This jacket is pre-eminent! Schott has really knocked this one out of the ballpark.
    It looks awesome, and is a joy to wear. It is a bit heavy, and that takes some getting used to, just like many other things in life - single-malt scotch whisky, chilis, and marriage (!) But, like all of these, it is just wonderful!

    This is, quite simply, the finest leather jacket I have ever owned. (I own four.) Good-looking, insanely well-made and comfortable. It is a bit heavy, but one gets used to that through frequently wearing it. As others have said, if you are considering it, pull the trigger and get it. A gift from the gods of leather!

    Naked cowhide has a beautiful matte finish. Schott heirloom quality. Size medium was perfect (5’8” 180lbs 42” chest) if you want the fitted look. Sleeve length and back length was perfect for someone my height. Cut slightly below belt line without making you look short. Leather jacket search is over!

    This jacket is amazing! Absolutely flawless in every way! This jacket feels like something made back in the days when stuff was designed to last forever. This is my second Schott jacket and I'm eyeing more! Bravo!

    Soft but heavy weight leather in superior Schott quality made in the U.S.A.. Excellent design - works on and off the motorcycle ;-) I am 6'3", 220lbs, chest 46", and broad shoulders: A 2XL was the right choice for me, as I like to wear a sweatshirt underneath. With a length of 28 + 3/8 inches it works well for tall people. I highly recommend this jacket and would buy it again: It's something else - don't hesitate.
