As a CBGB-era punk fan, I have always wanted a Schott Perfecto—and am I glad I pulled the trigger!
The narrow sleeves and lack of footballs give the jacket a vintage fitted feel without leaning too far into skin-tight fashionista territory. The leather feels bulletproof whilst also feeling comfortable and soft, such an amazing quality jacket! Even after one week daily use the jacket has broken in really nice!
Easily the best jacket investment I have ever made.
I am 5’9, 165lbs with a 39” chest and 17” shoulders. I purchased the 38” model which fit me perfectly. Schott does however recommend sizing up one, so make sure to enquire about spec sheets and do your own measurements before making your final decision.
I was looking to buy a leather jacket for a couple months, and finally decided to go with Schott after looking at other brands. I first went to my local Schott NYC store in San Francisco to try on the jacket and my experience there was really really cool. The staff there helped me try on a bunch of different styles including the 118 and the 618 but I ultimately went with the 613s for its slimmer sleeve look. The 118 I felt was a bit boxier and the the 618 was a bit to short in length. The 613s is slimmed out in the body and the sleeves and is a bit longer in length. I am 5’8 178 lbs and found that the 613s was a perfect fit. The leather quality is excellent, and one of the things that scared me the most about buying a leather jacket was how stiff the jacket was going to be, however, that that fear went away after a couple of wears the jacket loosened up and I felt it break in and now it fits like a total glove. This jacket is pretty high up there in price but trust me you will not regret buying it!
The jacket looks and feels fantastic. I instantly feel like a bad ass whenever I put it on. The leather is not what I was expecting but that is not the products fault. I had an All saints leather jacket I bought a few years ago but it was just too big on me and I didn't grow into it like I thought I would. Their jacket is more supple but more importantly doesn't really have the top layer of grain so it creases differently. I'm very interested in how this jacket with crease and wear over time. A bit worried about loose grain. However I believe in Schott and I trust they know how to make a good product because they have been doing so and have been a legendary company for more than a hundred years. I only give it 4 stars because it is brand new and I have no clue how it ages but as of now, wearing it a after one day, I love it.
This is the second jacket I have bought from Schott and have been extremely satisfied with the quality of both jackets
I wanted a Perfecto jacket to go with my Schott leather Pea Coat.
When ordering online getting the size correct is critical as living in the UK exchanging sizes would create its own problems and be very difficult.
Fortunately when I ordered my Pea Coat by asking questions to Schott directly regarding sizing and no doubt a bit of luck everything worked out fine and the fit was spot on and it is a very fine Coat.
Trying to work out if I could get lucky a second time ordering a Perfecto jacket online that is a very different fit to my previous purchase had me agonising over measurements on the spec sheets I requested from Schott.
Schott stockists in the UK are a rare breed and a lot of Internet searches proved this. However by pure chance I found "Rivet and Hide" a men's outfitters in Fitzrovia, Central London who were advertising stock of the Perfecto 613S.
A quick email confirmed they had the sizes I wanted to try on in store.
London only being a thirty minute train journey I went straight there in anticipation of being hopeful of finding what I wanted in the correct fit and at the same time removing the uncertainty and chance of ordering online.
I couldn't believe my luck, I am quite slim and tried a size 38 first this was slightly to much of a close fit, I then tried on a size 40.
I knew immediately this was the one as it felt good, fitted very well, and the Perfecto styling made it look just right.
The standard of manufacture and quality of the leather again exceeded my expectations bettering anything available here in the UK.
Perfecto Purchased and very happy.
Size Purchased 40"
Height 6' 0"

Been waiting awhile to buy one of these!
This jacket is built like a tank! The steerhide was quite stiff when I first got it but after a few weeks wear it is starting to break in and soften up.
I was initially put off by the stock sizing of the sleeves. I'm below average height and the stock sleeves would've been just too long on me.
Many thanks to Jerri at Schott for providing me with info on sizing and for offering to alter the sleeves. My 613S fits great!
Fantastic jacket! Perfection personified but I wouldn’t expect anything less from a perfecto! Speedy delivery and fast communication! I couldn’t be happier. Thank you very much, Dave in Australia
For reference, I'm a 5'11 slim person with 44" chest sizing.
I originally got this in a size 44 for a slim fit and I wasn't sure of the fitting with a hoody underneath it. It is very slim fitting for that size and I would not recommend it with a hoody.
I exchanged it for a size 46 and it is a comfortable fit with enough room for a hoody. However I had to get the sleeves tailored since it was too long and would cut off my circulation lol. Now it is an awesome jacket that I enjoy wearing.
This is one of those jackets that once you start wearing it you don't want to ever take it off again. Simply phenomenal!
It's pretty stiff when new but softens up nicely as it breaks in. I'm a size 40 and got also got the size 40 - fits nice and snug! However, if you want to layer with heavier sweaters underneath you should probably size up 1.
I get a lot of random people on the street stopping me and commenting "I like your jacket!" etc - a true head-turner!
If you're considering a biker jacket this should be your top choice!
Just received the 613S my very first Schott Perfecto Jacket and all I could say was WOW! I can't believe the quality and fit of this thing, it felt like it was tailored for me! From my shoulders to the arm length, sure it's a little stiff at first, but the quality is surely there, leather's thicker than your thick cut bacon lol! The one I got had no arm creases or anything, felt like it was straight off the shop that no one has even tried on. Also, I'm really glad that I listened and changed my size to 40 instead of the 38 that I originally wanted to get. This was recommended by Denise C. after I've sent numerous questions about this jacket which btw, I highly suggest if you'll be ordering online.
Anyway if this helps anyone I am 5"10 150lbs 37.5 chest slim built.
I don't really write product reviews, but I felt that this was truly worth it. Awesome job to this company.
