be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I have in the past worn jackets much more expensive that are not as comfortable and as solidly made as the jacket I received from you. I had read about Schott for a number of years and wanted to try the product because of its long history and the fact it is made in America.I am very glad I did. I do not need any more clothing but next winter I will buy another leather jacket from Schott.
I got this jacket via FedEx this morning.
Took a long time looking at the different cafe racer jackets Schott offer but as I am 5’9 152 pounds and have a slightly shorter torso, I wanted to find a cafe racer jacket that wasn’t too long in the body.
This jacket is perfect, the leather is soft and thick but the fit is perfect for my build on the shoulders, sleeves and waist, but most importantly on the length, as it’s 24” rather than 25.5 or 26”. It’s still a slim fit so not one to wear a thick pullover under, but it’ll be great for the spring and summer.
Have to say that the customer service from Schott was also fantastic: quick answers to my questions via email and they shipped the jacket in super quick time: ordered on Tuesday and arrived in the UK on Thursday.
Superb jacket, had tried numerous alternatives before buying, as it’s lambs in there is no stretch in this, chose xL on the basis of fit to shoulder, wanted some additional flexibility to layer underneath, had been considering a more expensive jacket but lack of need to break in was a deciding factor, help from the store in SF much appreciated
Luxurious leather, Perfecto perfection. This P234 is my second Schott Jacket, having also purchased the P665, and neither disappoint. The P234 is the antithesis to the P665. The P665 is built like a tank and feels like it could stop a bullet. Conversely the P234 is buttery smooth and luxurious to the touch. There is certainly no break in required for the P234 and the leather feels truly soft and luxurious. Everything about the jacket screams luxury and class. The P665 feels like it would take two years to break in, and this P234 is a pleasure to wear from day one. The P665 is very function forward and could easily be used for riding. The P234 is fashion forward, and certainly not appropriate for any protection while riding. That being said, the Lambskin leather still feels thick and substantial, while maintaining a very soft feel. The inner lining is classy and the interior pocket is a nice addition. I appreciate the 24” length on the back and the matte black color is amazing. Pictures definitely do not do this jacket justice. Some helpful details: I am 5’ 7” 215 with a muscular build. 48” chest, 35” waist, 24” sleeve and 18” neck. I ordered a Large because I wanted it more slim fitting. I have no intention of ever zipping this jacket, and I think they look better slim fitting. I also don’t anticipate layer with this jacket. A t-shirt underneath is all I’m planning on. This will be a fall/spring jacket for me. The sleeves are probably 1” too long for me, but I’ve found the sleeves zip up to a relatively tight cuff and feel comfortable. The upper arms are a bit tight, but not ridiculous. I could probably zip up the jacket but it would be tight on my chest, and the same goes for snapping the collar. Overall there is absolutely nothing to be disappointed in with this jacket and it exceeded all of my hopes and expectation. Typical Schott quality and attention to detail. I love everything about this jacket!
