I have been looking for a simple collared leather jacket for awhile and when I came across the 246 I thought it was exactly what I was looking for. I received this jacket about a month ago and have mixed feelings about it. This is about the 6th or 7th jacket I have bought from Schott and they have all been 5 star jackets in every way.
I love Schott's products however this jacket has some issues. I almost sent it back when I received it but decided to keep it and then another issued developed after wearing it a few times and I was unable to return it.
First the good:
-excellent lambskin leather that is a little heavier than most lambskin.
-the size was right on, I am 5' 11", 195 lbs, XL fit perfectly.
-jacket has a nice simple, sleek, slightly tapered cut.
-the finish and color is gorgeous.
Not so good:
-the sleeves were waaay long, all the way to my fingertips!??
-the sleeve openings (cuffs) seem too large.
-There is a two piece panel on the bottom of the back of the jacket and it appears the two pieces were not laying flat when sewn together so there is an odd wrinkle in that panel sometimes and I am hoping that it eventually settles down and looks OK. This issue didn't appear until after I had worn it a few times but if I had been noticeable when it arrived, I would definitely have returned it.
-The back length is 27" in the product description, this jacket is 28" long which is a little longer than I like.
-I had to take it to a local tailor to have the sleeves shortened and that cost me an additional $40.
So in summary I feel that this could have been a really wonderful jacket however due to the listed issues, I have to admit I am somewhat disappointed.
The ideal jacket. The matte finish is so smooth, it quietly stands out without going over the top. A perfect wardrobe addition from a top-notch company.
I am very happy I purchased the style 246 jacket. It looks and feels great. It’s lightweight, but not too light. It’s a bit thicker than other brand lambskin jackets in the same category. This may not keep you warm enough in colder climates, but is perfect for mild, cool temperatures. The style is casual, but is sleek enough to wear with office and formal clothes. I think this is one of Schott NYC’s most versitile leather jackets. You can not go wrong wearing it with a variety of outfits. As for the quality, you can expect exceptional material and workmanship. I highly recommend this jacket! Also, thank you to Schott NYC for their excellent customer service!
True to form for Schott, this jacket fits the bill perfectly for a light weight jacket that bridges the gap between that perfect daily wearer that looks refined heading out for the evening. The fit is true to size and comfortably manages t-shirts through sweaters. Quality is high as you'd expect from Schott, very happy with the purchase, great jacket!
This is my first leather jacket and have to say that I wish I'd bought one years ago. I live in the southeast so was looking for something lighter that I could wear for 3 seasons. The fit and quality of this jacket superb. I'm 5'8" and weigh 165 lbs. .
I highly recommend this jacket if you are looking for a casual leather jacket in a classic style that will be around for years to come. The price was a little higher than I wanted to pay but, "you get what you pay for".
This jet black fashion jacket is incredibly lightweight. It feels so soft and light when you wear it, you can barely notice it is on you. The material is very soft and buttery smooth. Plenty of room inside. If you want a super-tight fit, you might want to size down. Because of the cloud-like softness, I'm afraid the jacket might not be as durable as a cowhide jacket, but it is very high quality. The original lining pattern has changed, but Schott assured me it is the same quality. Lining is soft cotton. Very happy with my purchase.
Bought my first Schott's from Leather6410 here in Chicago. It has been a transformative experience.
This is the perfect leather jacket for Spring/Summer/Autumn. The leather is soft and supple right out of the box. Very high quality jacket. For the fit: I am 6 feet 4 inches tall, weigh 200lbs, 35/36 waist, 44 chest. The XL is a perfect fit; I am not seeking a sleek fit like a moto racer; this is a comfortable fit, with room for a very thin sweater if needed. Ample amount of shoulder room, too.
This feather-weight leather jacket is ideal for late Spring and early Fall weather. Looks sharp on the outside and has enough room on the inside for layering. It has a traditional yet transcendent appearance. I would like to see this same style of jacket made in a brown lambskin too.
I've been looking/waiting for this jacket for years. A casual, easy to pull off, dare I say normal, jacket with a spread collar. This is my second Schott (Mission), and I recommend the brand to everyone. But a lot of their jackets are extreme. Obviously not a bad thing. I tried the 689H, which is an insane jacket, but it's just too much to walk around in and not feel a bit self conscious. This is pure normalcy in the best way. Top notch quality as always from Schott
