Basically this is a very good looking and well made lightweight jacket. At $700 I was expecting some light fabric lining. The raw leather looks cheap. The lining would also make an inside pocket possible. I find inside pockets very useful.
So, although I like the jacket, I feel it's overpriced for what it is.
This is my first leather jacket from Schott,
This jacket is definitely geared more for style than actual motorcycle riding functionality. It is a lightweight, unlined waxy cowhide. Despite being lighter weight, the jacket is still substantial. You can see and feel the quality as soon as you put it on. The cowhide is beautifully supple, and the jacket is very comfortable.
Some dislike an unlined leather jacket, but I find it slips on and off easily. It works well with just a t shirt, but there is room for another thin layer as well.
I'm a true 40" chest, 6'3" 175 pounds, and the medium fits me perfectly. I would recommend this style to guys who are fit and trim; any bulge around the midsection would make the jacket's slim fit look a little unflattering.
If you're looking for a classic moto racer with retro styling and a slim, tailored fit, the p571 is for you. I can't wait to beat the heck out of this thing for the next 20 years. It's going to vintage beautifully, and I have no doubt this is a "buy it for life" type of garment. We'll worth the asking price. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Ordered the XL for myself (6”3’ 205lbs). It fits perfect. Wore the jacket for 2 hours in 72 degree weather and it was very comfortable. A great very lightweight jacket. I was worried about it being unlined, however, I could easily take on and off. The interior stitching is beautiful and I love the perfect tag. Also ordered the 654 racer and I liked the leather and fit better on this 571. So happy!
It is a quality jacket and looks amazing. The unlined/lightweight design would be great for warmer regions. The only downside it is definitely a slim cut and doesn’t have bi-fold swing for the shoulders. Expect a tight fit across the shoulders and upper arms.
I am 6’, 190 with an athletic build. I do a lot of weight lifting so I have broad shoulders, chest, and upper arms. I ordered a size large and although I loved the look it was just far too tight in the shoulder area. Keep this in mind when ordering.
This is probably my favorite 'go to' jacket for casual wear ... it's not heavy or bulky at all and fits perfect. At first, I was not sure about it not being lined - something I wasn't used to - but after several wears the jacket begins to mold/shape to your build and fits/feels custom. I liked it so much in black that I also ordered one in brown. If you know Schott quality - you will understand the price. American made!
5' 6" 173lbs. Normally wear a 40S in jacket 33waist.
Bought this jacket in a Small yesterday and it fits perfectly. The torso nor the arms are too long. It fits slim so yeah it would be hard to squeeze a sweater underneath but any collard shirt should work. Great for LA weather.
Met my every expectation. The jacket is well made, stylish but not in anyway dated. Very comfortable and will wear well I'm sure. And American made!
Nicely weighted, attractive and clean look. Stitch work is high quality. Been very pleased.
I am a 40 through the chest, and initially ordered the Medium which proved to be too tight. Exchanged it for the large and got rewarded with a perfect fit.
I was a bit put off by the shine of the leather right out of the box. It almost looked like fake leather, but with and hour of wearing it it dulled and wrinkled very nicely.
Being unlined allows the leather to mold to your body like it was made for you.
This is a tee shirt only jacket.
This is my 4th Schott and maybe my favorite.
