I purchased Confederate Motorcycles horsehide jacket made by Schott and fit me like a glove love it! Quit smoking for 10 months gained weight so I need a bigger size jacket. Bought Shott CAF1 same design as CF1 Horsehide.. New CAF1 very sturdy but supple also very comfortable. Satisfaction guaranteed !
Nice jacket - but I ordered online before trying on. It runs at least a size too big. I ordered a large (I don't wear anything other than large or extra large in any garment) and it was hilariously big. I'm still going to give it 4 stars because - well - it's a nice jacket. I'm lucky enough that I'm about 20 minutes from a Schott retail location and I returned it and simply bought a (completely different) jacket in the right size - that I totally love. The lack of a star is simply for sizing in this style. Buy a size down. Trust me. They'll tell you the same at the store.
As advertised: Thick leather, excellent materials and workmanship (USA), Stiff but will eventually mold to your body, no hand pockets, Large fit me comfortably at 6ft 185 pd. Don't ride or plan to.
Arrived 4 days after ordering!
Received the medium today (exchanged for the large) and fits perfect! This will be my go to for years ... solid jacket and feels indestructible.
This jacket is fantastic and made solid to last (like all Schott products). I just received mine - unfortunately I need to exchange it as it does run a bit large - normally I wear a large in Schott leather jackets - but this one is a bit too roomy and I am going to try a medium (I am 6'1 and 180lbs). Maybe double check sizing before you order - or call to discuss ... But will definitely put in my order for the same jacket.
I love this new jacket. The leather is indeed thick and solid. The jacket is cut roomy for colder weather riding. The Lining is soft and warm. I look forward to having this one till the end. I will wear it on or off the bike. Don miss this one.
This is a well made (in the USA) leather jacket from an American original, the Schott brothers. I loved the jacket but felt the medium sleeve length was too long for me so I exchanged it for a sized cafe racer jacket which I received today and I couldn't be happier with the product. I haven't taken it off since opening the box! Additionally the exchange was simple by mail. The service throughout my purchase was entirely beyond expectation.
I hear that they are discontinuing this model. Wrong decision in my opinion. I've wanted this jacket since I heard about the brand a few years ago. Never really could afford it. Finally bit the bullet and purchased it. Fits like a glove. I bought xxl. I'm 6 ft and around 250 so not a little guy. Get it while you can people. You will not be disappointed.
i purchased one of these jackets a few months ago, and it was my first ever purchase from schott. it's difficult to overstate how impressed i am with the quality; $850 isn't pocket change, but this jacket is worth well more than that. i'm now a loyal schott customer for life.
this jacket is unbelievably well made. the leather is high quality and seriously heavy duty; the craftsmanship is superb. this jacket fits so well it may as well have been custom made specifically to my measurements. i'm about 6'3" and 250 lbs, and normally wear a size large, but since this jacket is cut slim, i order an XL and it fits like a glove. it's easily the most comfortable jacket - leather or otherwise - that i've ever owned. the only feature i'm not completely sold on is the cotton lining in the sleeves. on the one hand, that makes wearing the jacket over a t-shirt very comfortable; on the other hand, it makes putting it on over a long sleeve shirt a little difficult sometimes. the shirt sleeves like to stick to the jacket sleeve lining a bit. short of that, this is a perfect jacket.
Style/Quality: This style has never been out of fashion since the "40's. No flaps, belts, extra pockets, just pure style. This is an elegant less-is-more jacket, the one thousands of manufacturers fail at imitating. Beautiful style, beautiful materials, beautiful construction.
Sizing: This jacket runs large. I'm 5'8", 185#, 41.5" chest. I normally wear a 42. The large was comically oversized, and even the medium is plenty big to get a Primaloft liner underneath. Schott's 141, size 42 was much snugger than the Caf1 medium. Although this is a fitted jacket, I'm thinking about getting the waist slimmed. Believe me, I'm no scrawny waif.
Service: I ordered my jacket in the week after Hurricane Sandy (half of NYC was under water.) Jerri sincerely apologized that I'd have to wait a few extra days for my jacket, and to make up for it, she expedited shipping. Need a return? Exchange? Done! Excellent, customer-centered service.
