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.
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.
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.
