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.
I don’t normally leave reviews however, this time I felt that I must for two reasons. Firstly the jacket. Simply put it’s SUPERB. Secondly sizing. I live in the U.K so it was vital I ordered the right size as returning was not going to be an option. I have a 41 inch chest. I was able to try the 618 in a size 40. This was a snug fit not too tight. I spoke to Schott support who were excellent. They gave me all the measurements for both jackets so I could see the difference. I was advised to go for a size 42 to allow for the slightly tighter fit of the 613sh. This advice was spot on. Perfect fit. Thank you.
Could not be more impressed with my Schott Perfecto 613sh. I’m 6’1” 180 lbs and I wear a size 40 suit jacket, I ordered the same size for my Perfecto. Man! It fits like it was made just for me! The HH leather is beautiful and the workmanship is 5 star til the last stitch.
Look out Brando
I’m coming for ya
I recently purchased a Schott 613SH.
I am super pleased, the quality and the design is top notch, it is everything i hoped for and more.
Customer experience was great, thank you Jerri for all your help and promt replies.
Five star product and five star customer experience.
Now i am ready to buy my next Schott!
Stunning jacket and very quick delivery to Australia - couple of days. This is just a perfect jacket and fitted me true to size. As close to the original from what I can see, and no need for football underarms while riding. The only thing I would I say is beware of additional duties in Australia for purchases above $1k Aussie.
So happy with my new 613SH!!! It's a perfect fit!! Slim through the body and arms, and has high armholes for a snug but comfortable fit around the chest. Leather is a bit stiff but I'm hoping it will break in with more wear. Love the jacket....definitely Perfecto!
This Perfecto has to be one of the finest jackets that Schott is currently making. The pictures are good, but don't quite do it justice. You really have to see this jacket with your own eyes and hold it in your hands to appreciate its quality. Achieving the right fit with jackets like these is crucial so I was thrilled to see a slim cut variant of the 613 become available. The sleek cut of the 613SH is extremely flattering on my athletic frame. There was no need to size up or down.
I bought this as my first horsehide leather jacket and I have to say that I'm very impressed with its quality. The smooth grain and slightly glossy finish really make this jacket stand out, even from other leather jackets of a similar style. It was a tad stiff when it first arrived, but it has broken in rather well by now and is quite comfortable to wear.
Overall, I am thoroughly satisfied with this Perfecto. The jacket manages to be flashy, rugged, and sophisticated all at the same time. I know I'll be wearing it with confidence for many years to come.
This jacket seems to be as close to the original 613 as you can get. The leather is beautifully smooth and shining. It even smells and sounds good! I've tried many brands of leather jacket, but nothing is as good as this. Delivery was incredibly prompt - just three days from New York to London - and Jerri at Schott was very helpful about measurements.
Unless you're fairly overweight, I would ignore Schott's advice, and go for your normal size for a snug fit.
The Schott Perfecto 613SH is absolutely stunning. It’s sleek (but still rugged), gorgeous, rock ’n’ roll perfection. Its cut is perfect, the finish of the horsehide leather is beautiful and the jacket quite simply looks as cool as f**k.
With the more fitted cut, slimmer sleeves and lack of underarm footballs, I’d recommend to all folks who, like me, prefer their biker jackets to have that snug 'rocker' look to buy this jacket in their usual chest size. I also own an awesome standard cut 613, which fits me superbly in a size down from my normal size, but you really don’t need to size down with the 613SH. All the dimensions on this one are absolutely perfect on me in a true to size fit.
The eye-catching, glossy look of the horsehide on the 613SH definitely ramps up the rock ’n’ roll factor of the Perfecto even more, and something feels incredible about wearing leather from such magnificent animals. It gives a feeling of style, cool and armoured invincibility that’ll see you confidently swaggering into whatever situation you find yourself in whilst wearing this jacket. Trust me, you'll feel like a stallion in this one.
The quality of Schott products, combined with their excellent customer service, make them a pleasure to purchase from and delivery, even across the Atlantic to me here in the UK, is seriously fast. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
You own a leather jacket but it’s not a Schott? I suggest you think again as the difference in quality is remarkable. To rejig a quote from Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale: “There are leather jackets and leather jackets; a Schott is the latter”.
