Very happy with my 613s. Was shipped to the UK very quickly. the moment I put it on I could tell this was the one, I ordered a size up initially but ended up getting it in my actual size, which felt tight to begin with but now it's softened up it is a great fit. It's a perfect combination, fashionable but with the practically and durability of a real motorcycle jacket. The quilted lining makes it great for the cold UK weather, and with a sweater underneath it's really warm.
I had tried a 613 previously, the main differences between this and the standard 613 are the shoulders are narrower, the arms are longer and slimmer at the top. Also the front is longer so the bottom is the same length all the way round. If you're slim like me and find the 613 too V shaped, then this one is for you.
It used to be if one was 6 foot 4 and 200 some pounds and wanted an awesome Schott MC Jacket a 141L and 118L were the only choices. Not to put them down as 141L was an iconic choice for Tom Welling’s “Red Kryptonite” character in Smallville, and the 118L is a pretty versatile jacket with its soft texture and underarm footballs and padded kidney back. Supposedly the 585 and 1928 would have worked, but those options are gone – Regretful I didn’t give the 1928 a try when it was around (maybe 2028?). There is the route of going with the Jeff Goldblum or G Eazy route of an YSL where the sleeves are two inches away from where they should fall around the wrists - $5,000 is a lot to spend to have clothing look too small IMO..
I currently own a 118L and a 519. The 519 is an interesting jacket in that it is extremely soft and comfortable. Though it does have a finish meant to evoke horsehide, it is extremely soft and very easy to wear. If anyone has seen a broken in horsehide of steerhide they notice the break in lines in the finish. The pebbling helps evoke that shinier but broken in look. No break in required. The 2XL fit very well. My weight fluctuates between a 46L and a 48L.
I was hoping the 613S would be similar to the 118L and the 519 in being to meet the challenge of fitting me. There were elements of the 613 I always liked – The snap free collar, the amazing heavy steerhide finish and stiff look. Its 23.5 inch length of the standard 613 was an issue though. I am not JG, so I wouldn’t be able to pull that off. Surprisingly the 613s fit much better than I expected. Though I was warned the 613S is short it seems to me that it is the same length up front as the 118L (that rear padded kidney on the 118L accounts for its specification length), though not as long as the 519. Fit was almost like a glove. No, it is not a soft jacket like the 519, but it has a much edgier look. The stiffness is difficult to explain. The 519 and a broken in 118L feel supple when worn, the Heavy Steerhide feels like one is occupying it.
I like that Schott is keeping us tall guys in mind. Actually there is another Perfecto choice for a tall customer – a true horsehide 613SH, and some other slim fit XL/2XL models.
For my Perfectos here is the difference:
118L: Best for riding.
519: Great for comfort.
613S: Not as soft as the other two, but an iconic jacket that looks incredible.
If you are tall like me and want a Perfecto don’t forget to ask the nice Schott people for help with sizing.
After owning a Brown 519, I wanted a black leather for an edgier look. I found the 613S to be very simple looking, not too much hardware, and slim looking.
I'm normally worried for the fact that I can't find any schott related stores around my area and of course to be lucky enough to have the 'off-the-rack fit' as altering leather is really expensive as is.
I followed Gail's advice on the 519 which became a perfect fit at '42 chest ordering medium but the 613S is designed slim as well and come in chest sizes. I read a few reviews stating to order one size up but I stuck with my 519 size of '42 medium, mind as well order my correct '42 size.
One I opened the box, I noticed the weight of the jacket is heavier than the 519, leather is stiff (definitely protective thickness) taking a while to break in, and the fit...PERFECT.
The chest felt perfect having just enough room to put your fist into the jacket and rotating. You could wear a button down, neck tie, and a thin cardigan pull over sweater for this size, not sure if a really heavy thick sweater could fit unless one size up.
Armpits were tight but that's to be expected since there are no footballs but will contour with your body stretching the pit area out comfortably.
Shoulder to shoulder, neck to hip length, the slim fit around the waist area makes you look slim and not boxy/bulky, and most importantly the sleeve length were just on par with passing my wrist and ending before my thumb joint from the wrist AFTER the BREAK-IN time accustomed to my elbow creasing.
DO NOT SEND YOUR JACKET TO ALTERATION UNTIL AFTER YOUR ELBOWS BREAK IN 'SHRINKING' THE SLEEVE LENGTHS FIRST!!!
It's better to have longer sleeve to work with before break in time to alter afterward than altering the sleeves before break in time having really shorter sleeves after it has adjust to your arm length, you'll probably have to purchase another set of sleeves!!!
Wearing it due to its simple look and design makes it very flexible for any attire from dressing up to dressing down, definitely is a closet staple item. I received numerous amounts of compliments of the design, zipper hardware being thick, and just looking expensive as to other 'fashion' brands designs that even costs up to $5k.
ONLY ONE CON of this jacket would be is that the buckle doesn't a have a snap-on button that keeps it in its place like the 519. That should be a standard must have part in the design, it's very convenient not to have the buckle dangling around making noise, scratching something you're holding, whipping onto surfaces, etc. when unzipped.
There's no need to spend more than $600 - $1000, if the quality is there. Schott is the most iconic brand for their styling and quality that's made in the U.S. all for under a $1,000 when there are $5000 jackets from YSL fashion name that it senseless. It wouldn't surprise me if Schott went that route to fashion line of their using thinner leathers and charge 2 or times less.
You can't go wrong with this jacket, it's one of the best slim fitting designs.
So I've waited around 15 years to buy this jacket, and it completely lives up to my expectations. The 613S is probably less functional and more fashion (not having the under-arm footballs makes movement a little tougher, which for me is fine, I don't own a motorcycle nor do I intend to) and when they say slim fit, they mean it... which once again was fine for me, because I'm slim, like a tight fit, and want to stretch it out a little myself... but if you're going to ride in it, you probably want the underarm footballs. The jacket feels and looks amazing. You can just feel the quality and I love knowing I'm supporting American made apparel. I can't wait to re-review my jacket after I've beaten it up a little more and broken it in.
This is probably my 10th Schott jacket. I’ve had 118, 613, 113, 519, 618, and this is my favorite of all! Fits exactly how a leather jacket should. I’m 6’1, 183 lbs and I ordered a 40 for that Dee Dee Ramone fit!
The recommended size was a 44. When received it was huge in the chest and the arms were way to long. I am 5'11 and weigh 140 pounds.
The jacket is oustanding. Just didn’t give that 5 stars because the sleeves were to long for me. I had to send it to a leather tailor to get them fix and spent 130 CANADIAN dollars for that. Otherwise, I recommend the jacket.
I am approximately 5'7" and 125 lbs. which means I'm a small Asian dude and quite skinny. I was skeptical that this jacket might not fit me with its more American cut, but low and behold, it was pretty much an exact fit! Their size charts really helped and made me confident in my purchase. When it came, I was more than happy to feel the sturdiness and livelihood of the leather. Get this jacket!!! I highly recommend it!
Just got my jacket today and I am very impressed. High quality, great slim fit, craftsmen at it's finest. Read the other reviews, this is the best jacket.
I ordered mine from the factory on Monday, and got it on Tuesday! Talk about laser-fast shipping to eastern Canada! I'm 5'9", 44" chest size with 19" shoulders. However, I decided to size up to a 46, and what a wise choice it was.
While the 44 would've been an excellent fit, (I'll be getting that one too) the 46, while still sleek and slim, gives me some room for layering; hoodie, sweater, plaid long-sleeve + t-shirt, etc. And being that it's still quite cold at this time of year in my part of the world, the 46 makes perfect sense.
So in terms of sizing, at least from how my jacket feels on me right now, (no, I haven't taken it off yet) it's not necessary to size up unless you want to layer. You can just go with your chest size for a snug fit. Personally, I just wanted a little extra room, and a little is indeed what you get. As soon as you slap on a hoodie, sweater, plaid, or a combo over your shirt, you become a tightly wrapped parcel of awesome! The 46 is also longer by an inch. The bottom sits just below the belt line; for my height anyways.
All that being said, I must say, I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I saved for quite some time in order to get my new 613. and I love it! Jerri and Denise are true champs of patience with the barrage of questions I had while making my decision, and I do apologize in advance to both ladies for all my future Q&A's!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to breaking this guy in!
Cheers, Schott Family! You're second to none! Glad to be part of the club!
I just got my 613s yesterday from Snake Oil Provisions in Long Beach, Ca. It is the best jacket I have ever owned hands down!! The fit the look the way it feels on me how comfortable and easiliy accessible the pockets are to get in and out of, A WAY bigger and better upgrade from my other PLG Leather Jacket. The people who work at SOP in Long Beach were the nicest most helpful and respectful cool people. Very smart very informative about the jacket and just over all really awesome people! Thanks so much Schott for making an amazing product and thanks to SOP in Long Beach, CA for ordering the jacket for me and helping me with the questions I had. My first Schott that I will have for the rest of my life. A jacket I've dreamed of owning since a kid and now it hangs up in my closet as a BRAND NEW STRAIGHT FROM THE FACTORY JACKET!!! Can't believe it. Gonna wear it all the time and can't wait to break it in and live life in a genuine American Made SCHOTT PERFECTO
The Schott team did a great job providing direction on jacket and size based on my measurements. I have an athletic build and often times run into challenges with suit jackets and blazers - the Slim Fit Perfecto works amazing though. You can feel the quality from the instant you put it on. Know that people are going to stare when you wear this thing out. It looks incredible. I've paired it with jeans and pants/dress shirt and in both instances it looks fantastic. Can't wait to break it in more in the coming years.
Disclaimer: I own a 613US, not a 613S, but the leather, cut, and styling should be very similar. The jacket was bought a couple years ago, but am leaving a review for a recent experience from Schott customer service (Jerri specifically!).
It is really hard to find a good double rider. Jackets that use high quality sturdy leather and construction tend to look bulky and too functional, and jackets that fit well and feel luxurious tend to be fashion brands that cheap out on any and every aspect possible so long as it doesn't fall apart immediately.
The 613US by Schott is classic perfecto perfection. If you're looking for a classic biker jacket (these guys invented the double rider) with a slimmer, more fashion cut, AND you need the leather to be hefty and outlive your grandchildren, this might just be the one.
I am 5'9', 39' chest, 30' waist, 151lbs, and the 38 fits true to size with just a tinnyyy bit of room for a sweater. The jacket fits slim but not compress-your-nips tight, striking the perfect balance of style and traditional masculinity. A very very powerful silhouette indeed. I did have the sleeves slimmed because I am Asian and although athletic, I don't have the bulk to fill the sleeve in. This was a $25 procedure at my regular tailor, and it just made the jacket all the more sexy. That's right. It's sexy.
Recently after some carelessness during a night on the town, a collar snap came out. I contacted Schott expecting them to direct me to an appropriate dealer of snaps so I could match the tones of the snaps to the rest of the hardware better, and they replied asking me for my address. They are going to send me replacement snaps for free. TO CANADA. If you needed any more proof that Schott cares about its customers all over the world, and not just pre-purchase, look no further. A Schott jacket is a partner for life, just like Schott NYC itself.
This is my second Schott collection! I love this 613s! A timeless Perfecto! Amazing quality and perfect fit!!! Now I see most Perfecto jackets have a nice trim line on the sleeves like the 740c pea coat! Wow! I'll look forward to collect more Schott jackets! Excellent sizing, quality and they're "timeless!"
This is my second leather motorcycle jacket. The first jacket I owned was a Japanese slim fitting British asymmetric by Addict Clothing similar to this Schott slim fitting 613S, however the Schott feels sturdier and I have a feeling it is going to last a lot longer.
I've been looking for this style of jacket for a long time and have tried several different higher-end fashion brands, but have gotten rid of each one as something was never quite right. I purchased this jacket hoping it would be what I wanted: sturdy, slim, and stylish, and it does not disappoint. The 613s blends together the tough leather you expect from Schott with an extremely fitted yet comfortable silhouette. If you're on the fence with this jacket, know that the fit and finish will leave you more than satisfied.
The 613S fits like a glove. Most motorcycle jackets are bigger, looser and boxier. This one is a truly fitted model, slimmer through the body and upper sleeves. I have a 35" chest, 5' 9" weighing at 140lbs. and usually jump between 34" and 36" sizes in different models. I ordered the 36 so I'd have a little room to grow over the years and it's like a perfectly tailored suit. The 34 was snug, rockstar style. With the 36 I wear a t-shirt at it looks like a perfect fit. I can comfortably rock a hooded or denim jacket underneath too.
This jacket is incredible! I am 5'10 and 155 lbs. Slim/slender build. I have a very hard time with jackets fitting boxy and with the bicep area of the sleeves being way too big. This jacket seems to have slimmer arms and higher armholes. I ride, so I needed something that would keep me protected, but also look good. The weight and dimensions of this jacket do both. It doesn't ride up on me like a longer jacket would. I would suggest this jacket to anyone who loves classic looks, quality, and rock n' roll. The 613S fits my frame because I am smaller, but let's face it... Any Perfecto is cool. If the Perfecto was good enough for Springsteen, then it is good enough for the rest of us.
I've been looking at getting a Perfecto for some time, but getting the sizing right has been a big concern. I obtained a PER2 previously but the sizing runs quite large and I'm a pretty slender guy. Living in Australia makes it difficult to try before you buy. The Schott staff were super helpful answering all of my questions, so I decided to pull the trigger on a 613S. I'm very happy I did! The fit is classic/slim, and thankfully is true to size! My chest is a 38" I'm around 5'8," 70kg. It's a slim fit, but not full-on skin tight. Length is spot on for my height, sleeve length is perfect. I could have gone another size down, but definitely don't feel that I would have needed to. Finish is fantastic, all in all, exactly what I was looking for in a Perfecto. Great job Schott, this jacket is bad arse.
I am one of the voices on the forum that have been asking for this jacket for years now. I knew that a 613 comparable to the 613US would be a great asset to those who wanted the classic onestar in a more traditional fit. Here it is! It fits like my vintage 613s' and has the quality of the classic Schott jackets you need for riding. If you are looking at others on the market, you can stop here and rest assured this is the "One" you have been waiting for. I cannot recommend this one enough!!
This is the one we have been waiting for. The timeless 613 design as seen in the wild one. This time around we don't have those bulky underarm footballs or kidney back. A true vintage reproduction of the jacket that made Schott the standard.
I chose to size down 1 but it is not necessary. This is a slim fitting jacket.
