Schott offers a lot of different models of their iconic Perfecto jacket. Some of the differences are quite obvious while others are more subtle. Deciding which one is right for you is kind of a process. They are obviously all great jackets and you’d probably be happy with any one of them, but in my opinion the 613sh stands alone over all the others.
Every decision on the 613sh was the right one. It has the heaviest, stiffest, best horsehide that’s both shiny and an extremely deep, dark shade of black. It definitely takes some break in, but it’s well worth it. The old-school cut and omission of the underarm footballs gives this jacket a slightly trimmer, less bulky look without sacrificing mobility or reach on the bike. The omission of the collar snaps was a subtle but great move! It gives you the option of wearing the collar up (Fonz) and seems to work better when the jacket is in its fully zipped (lapels in) position while riding. Arm length is very generous. Obviously the stars are a must have!
I’m 5’11” 185 pounds 43 inch chest, relatively fit build. I wear a large t-shirt and 33 or 34 waist pants. I went with size 44 in the 613sh. Jacket looks good with either a t-shirt or a hoody. I also have a 618hh in a 44 which fits a little bigger overall than the 613sh. It’s a good runner-up if you need a little more wiggle room and like the underarm footballs.
Fantastic jacket. The fit is like a glove and true in size. If you want to wear a thick garment underneath like a hoodie you need to order a size larger than you normally would because this is a fitted jacket, not loose and sloppy at ALL. It fits snuggly against the torso. Looks fantastic and obvious of high lest quality, a very high end look that gets lots in compliments. If you want to stand out, THIS will do it!!!!! I’ve purchased FIVE jackets from Schott, I won’t buy from anyone else!!!
Ordered a size a bit small and exchanged that one for one size larger. Holy hell, it is a piece of armor. This is a beautiful jacket and I’m happy that I purchased it from the company that invented this look. Absolutely worth it. Thank you, Schott, for all that you do.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and it came quickly, packaged well & the jacket fit his perfectly. He loves it! Will definitely be ordering his jackets here. Very good quality too!
Putting this jacket on instantly makes you feel like a badass. Really, it feels incredible to wear and gets a lot of attention. The horse hide is really thick and heavy, which I love. Also, its considerably more lustrous than the cow hide option. I purchased mine at the shop in Los Angeles about a year ago. A few months back I met Arnold Schwarzenegger while wearing this jacket and he smiled when he looked at it, I don't think I need to say more.
I once tried 618HH size36 a few months ago. It was a good fit, or a little bit tight at waist and wrist. That means a good fit for Slim FIT PREFERENCE, a little bit tight for Standard fit to me. My size, HEIGHT 5 ft 8 in, WEIGHT 128 lb, CHEST 35 in ( 173cm, 58kg, 89 cm ). Actually FIT GUIDE shows size 38 for FIT PREFERENCE Standard, and 36 for Slim and Very Slim. I totally trust FIT GUIDE. 618 and 613 are FIT slim cut anyway. I had thought very difficult to purchase a leather jacket for my size slender, but Schott NYC!! I bought 613SH because underarm football of 618HH maybe too much to me and stars of 613HH are still charming. Horsehide is a great quality sturdy and shining I love. I ordered Saturday night at Schott NYC website and received in Paris, France, the box Wednesday morning, very rapid even one day earlier than estimated delivery date. Thank you Schott, GREAT!!!
Overall nice quality. Back length fine at 25 inches. I sat down on a chair an it "blouses up" in the chest area. Could be at least an inch shorter in the front panels. Beautiful jacket though!
Absolutely one of my favourite clothing items now. The pictures make the jacket look a lot more shiny than it actually is. The jacket came out pretty stiff but it was rather easy to break it in. The sleeves are still a bit stiff but I feel those are becoming comfortable everyday. There is a weight to the jacket, so you might want to be aware of it. If someone is buying for purely fashion purposes HH might not be the best option. I got it for fashion purposes and have no regrets but ymmv. The folks at schott were helpful with the additional sizing info. I am 5'10 with a slightly athletic figure. Got size 38 and tbh it fits me almost perfectly. The sleeves and height of the jacket are maybe an inch longer than ideal but it still fits great on me. The only complain would be its not as warm as I expected. If temperatures drop to 10 degrees celsius then the jacket alone may not protect you.
First of all thank YOU Denise for all your helpful online customer service! You have helped me to find the perfect jacket. I am 5’10”, chest 40”, waist 36”, i ordered a size 40 and it’s a slim fit which is what I like. Having said that, I will only be able to wear a t-shirt underneath it and probably lose some weight 5-10 lbs to look the part. So it all depends on how you like your look to be!
Having said that, I don’t find the horse hide to be too stiff and I love the shine and feel of the leather.
My dream jacket! The jacket is heavy weight, and the horsehide is a beautiful work of art and craftsmanship. As soon as I opened up the packaged and smelled that new leather smell; and took a look at it was awesome! This is a serious jacket and the real deal. Having a Perfecto from Schott to own is an awesome feeling to have. The jacket gives me a special feeling every time I wear it; that cannot be described unless you own a Perfecto yourself. I'm trying to save up to buy the 613s for my younger brother for his birthday.
I think he would love it. I feel this jacket is going to age well and only get better with time. This is why I think investing in a quality leather jacket is a smart purchase because if you take care of it; the jacket will only get better with time. After a week of wearing the jacket creases in the arms have started to develop. Although it is rainproof this is my baby and want to protect it and take care of it so it will age nicely. I will try and keep it away from rain, but If I get caught in the rain no biggie. I learned from my past two Schott's not to intentionally wear it in the rain and beat it up. Schott makes the best.
