Awesome fit. Beautiful leather. Truly Just a fantastic jacket.
I've worn this jacket now for several months and have mixed feelings about it. Great leather; thick, soft, yet protective. Excellent vintage style low luster finish but needs to be wiped down much more frequently than a shiny finish because it's kind of a dirt magnet (I motorcycle).
Now about the fit, somewhat disappointed here, and it's why I docked 2 stars. I'm 5'10" muscular 180lbs, 42 chest, 32 waist and normally wear large. This jacket fit me great in the shoulders where I wouldn't want it any smaller, but it's rather unattractively loose in the waist even with the buckles tightened all the way.
The jacket looks decent when I wear it open but awkward when zipped up because it's kind of a bell shaped thing on a V shaped guy. I even considered throwing it in the washer and dryer to shrink it up but will probably just be safe and have it altered instead.
Overall, great quality jacket with a unique finish and style. Perfect if you need lots of belly room, but not if you're looking for a trim fit.
Perfect jacket. Got two compliments the first day I wore it. Gave her your contact info. Looks great with my cowboy hat too!
Color, style, weight and hide as represented. Quality product.
I may be the first one to review this jacket. I have two other Schott jackets and I usually like to read reviews before shelling out these kinds of bucks, but there were no reviews so I took the plunge blindly.
Glad I did, this is a very nice jacket. Nice thick leather, thin cotton lining, all high quality as you’d expect. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect with a waxed finish, but the leather is soft and supple, and thick. It looks weathered. The leather feels and smells great.
I like the fit. I’m 5’10”, about 170. Usually on me shirts and jackets are either too tight in the shoulders but fit around the waist, or fit my shoulders but are too loose around my waist. I ordered a large, and it’s a nice fit. I tightened the side straps to the third hole, and I love the fit. Not tight in the shoulders but I can comfortably wear a sweater under it.
The sleeves come about to my knuckles, and the bottom of the jacket is neither too short nor too long. I have a Schott 689 motorcycle jacket,and this jacket is a few inches longer than that one.
I’ve received several compliments already on how the jacket looks. It’s not a winter coat, but definitely is suitable for spring and fall with a layer underneath.
All in all I’m quite happy with this jacket, and highly recommend it if you’re looking for a quality, unique-looking leather jacket.
