be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I had my eye on this jacket for quite some time. I kept vacillating ..."do I need this?"..."how many more Schott jackets do I really need?".."is this the best way to spend my hard earned money?" And the answer to all of those questions in my head could arguably be "no". BUT...on a whim I figured "what the heck" and bought it justifying that I could always return it if it didn't meet my expectations. Well...BIG expense no doubt, but this jacket is NOT going back!!! It met my expectations and then some! What a beautiful garment! Great workmanship! Awesome stying! The fit is PERFECT! Well done AGAIN Schott! I am going to need to ban myself from your site however as if we continue like this, it could be dangerous to my bank account! Beautiful Jacket!!!
First off...I need another leather jacket like a hole in the head. I've had my eye on this since it was first introduced and candidly, when my size went out of stock I was somewhat relieved. Then came the email that it was re-stocked and temptation got the best of me...
The jacket arrived yesterday and I must say, NO BUYER'S REMORSE HERE! WOW! It's better than I expected. Fit is perfect and it feels just great on. Leather is supple yet seems strong. I'm VERY happy with this jacket. Thank you, (again), Schott!
This jacket is just what I expected, just better. This jacket looks great and fits like a glove. Over the years I have had 10 jackets from Schott and I was never disappointed. My sons took on the tradition and wear them with the same pride as I did.
Cheers to Schott.
The fit of this one is phenomenal! I have custom jackets that do not fit any better than this! The semi nubuck cowhide took a bit of getting used to. The fit and comfort more than make up for it. The goatskin collar is a nice touch of contrast. The refinement of the cut and composition are a notch above my other leathers. I really wish I did not know that Schott's XXL in regular fit did not fit me perfectly. With the number of beautiful leathers that they offer, this could be a very dangerous thing.
Just got this one, and overall, I like it and it’s a keeper. One thing to note — it’s not all cowhide. It’s also goat hide according to the label. In fact, I suspect most of the outer is goat hide and only the collar is cow hide.
A quality that I like but others may not — it shows scratches easily to the surface, even from brushing a finger nail as you button it closed. I think this means that it will distress and patina nicely and more quickly. Despite that, the hide (whatever it may be) seems tough. Would be better if Schott NYC included ALL types of hides used in its descriptions for customers.
Response from Schott NYC: Thank you for your feedback. We have updated the description to clarify that the collar is goatskin. To be clear the entire jacket is cowhide and only the top of the collar is goatskin.
