The original, a piece of history. This is the model the Ramones rocked out in the late 1970's. If you want the punk rock look don't order one size up :)
This particular jacket is the finest on the market. You may pay more for other custom jackets of similar design but none witll give you the long years of servicability that you will receive from this unit. The quality of the leather is far superior to any I have encountered. Plaiable and easliy adapts to your body and the functions you perform. If you can find one better, then buy it, but not until you compare in person and apples to apples.
Bought this jacket after selling my 118 due to the body being a bit too bulky. Bought it true to size for a snugger fit and it was as expected, though the body is still a bit too wide, buckling the strap to the second hole creates that slight "poking out" of the bottom of the jacket which happens when the body is too wide and you cinch it.
Additionally, I measured the sleeves on my 118 (fuller cut version of this jacket) and they sleeves in the bicep area on the 613 are actually WIDER than on the 118 (both size 40). Terrible choice as the jacket is short and slim with big bulky sleeves creating a poor profile.
Fit issues aside, the leather is great quality, but takes a decent time to break in. I recommend not hanging it but rather rolling into a ball and stuffing in a drawer. It will help to bend the leather and make it less stiff.
Also, I'd like to see Schott bring back the collar attachments for this version. No upper lapel collar snaps but still put in the inner snaps which allow attachment of the collar like previous models of the 613 had.
Satisfied with the purchase as a whole, but seriously...these sleeves are an issue.
Absolutely perfect In every way and just what I wanted out of a classic motorcycle jacket.
5 stars for my 'One Star'
After years of buying cheap imitations I finally decided to treat myself to a genuine Schott Perfecto leather jacket and I only wish I had done it sooner. Being a Ramones fan I opted for the 613 as famously worn by the boys and I have to say it's fantastic. When I took it out of the box I just knew it would be the best jacket I will ever own, it screams quality and blows every other make out of the water, the quality of the leather is just second to none. I live in the UK and ordered it on the Thursday night and it was delivered first thing Monday morning....outstanding customer service!!! many thanks to Jerri and everyone at Schott, you are a credit to your profession.
I will wear this piece of history proudly regardless I´m on my bike or on foot. If you prefer tight fit don´t purchase one number up than you are.
Many thanks to Jerri for heaving patience for me.
I finally received the 613, and it is so perfect and soft leather that is way exceeded my expectation! Really, it is the perfecto motorcycle jacket for me.
Thank to Jerri from customer service as she was patient enough to advise my size even though she initially said that Schott leather jackets are made for men so that woman like me (5"6, 125LB, Women size 6) would rarely fit well on the wide-shoulder and sleeve-length. But, I insisted to get one, so she suggested me 613's size 34. And, it fits really great! Maybe, I may want to alternate for slimming down the sleeves though I can wear heated inner jacket under the jacket.
It is indeed cool and rocking motorcycle jacket, especially chick riders wear :p
I've owned a couple of leather jackets from varying brands, but none have held up or been as high a quality as this 613. Being 5'7" and 125lbs, I ordered the XS and it fit perfectly. A nice, slim fitting jacket that looks great when I step out of my 84 Cadillac Eureka hearse. Embroidered patches look great on this jacket too, I should add. It might be as stiff as a board when you get it (the leather is pretty tough), but after you break it in, you have one fine fitting jacket.
The jacket is simply…gorgious!!!
Everything from the feel of the leather, the look, and the smell of the leather shows just how incredible this jacket is. I once had a size 42 that I loved, which is my normal size, but I parted ways with it because the sleeves didn't fit me right. The sleeves were just a little too short for me. I decided to size up and do not regret it, they fit perfectly. To give you a reference point, I'm 5'11" weigh 185 and have an athletic build with long arms and wide shoulders. I'm excited to break the jacket in so it'll conform to me over time. The fit on the 44 feels better than my previous jacket, and I'm happy to have a Schott back in my wardrobe once again.
I was told that getting a leather motorcycle jacket would make my life better...and it did. This jacket has an authentic vintage feel and fit. This is my go to jacket for all occasions. The shopping process was incredibly easy. I would highly advice all potential buyers to be properly measured for a jacket. Initially I measured one size and when I had a tailor measure me I found that a size 48 would be a better fit.
Purchased 613 to replace my old motorcycle jacket. I ride all year round and needed a jacket that lives up to the advertisement. I rode up to Canada and back to NJ. The jacket was comfortable and warm. Especially while riding at night. Definitely had to order one size up. Customer service was great and return shipping was speedy. Top quality jacket that will last for many years. Happy customer!!!
I have been considering a Schott perfecto for some time but have been reluctant about the sizeable investment required to buy one. That all evaporated when I got the chance to try one on at a new local retailer. The second you put one on you can feel what all the fuss is about, there are very few pictures online that do the jacket justice, in person you will be amazed I guarentee. The 613 is built like a brick-s**t house!
Sizing advice: I am 5'10 with a 38" chest and athletic build, the 38 size jacket fit very tight, good for just a t shirt but if you are using it for riding I would suggest sizing up to be able to fit a sweater underneath. The size 40 still looks totally fitted without a sweater though, so unless you are extremely skinny I would size up one. Also remember that the jacket will form fit to your body after a few months of being in the elements.
It is all in the name Perfecto and it is perfect in every way. This should last a life time.
Beautiful retro jacket
This is by far the finest leather jacket that I've ever had--better than Eastman, Lost Worlds, or any other I have tried. The first thing I noticed about it was the beautiful finish and smell of the leather. The lining did not disappoint as far as comfort and warmth.
The fit was a concern for me, so I contacted Jerri for advice, which resulted in a perfect fit right out of the box.
I have no idea what people are saying about the sleeves being too wide. If anything, they could be a bit wider. My suggestion to those people is to go and find a gym.
Thanks for making a fabulous product. It won't be the last Schott I own..
The 613 arrived today via UPS two days after I ordered it. Jerri was unbelievably helpful and answered all of my questions via email within minutes. It seemed more like texting than emailing. So quick. The jacket fits like a glove. I ordered true to size and couldn't be happier with the way it fits me. I wear a 40 regular suit jacket, so I ordered a 40 in the 613. Perfecto. Everything about it, from the way it fits my torso, to the sleeve length and diameter, is perfect. I was nervous about the "bagginess" of the sleeves because of some of the other reviews (and even other photos of people in the 613), but I am happy to say that the sleeves are perfectly slim in my experience. I think other people have just ordered the wrong size for their body type. I am 5' 10 1/2" and weigh in at ~180lbs. I ordered 40 and it is fucking perfect. My new favorite article of clothing. I wish I could put into words how absolutely pleased I am with this jacket. Huzzah!
I wore an imitation biker jacket for 20 years, real leather, just not a Schott! I don't ever want to take this jacket off and it's not even broken in yet!! I'm a union worker myself, so I say,,, union brothers,,, keep up the great work! I am a Schott costumer for life now!!! Everybody is right though,,, it runs tight. So if your a size 44,,,, definitely get a size 46 or you will be sending it back!
im a size 39-40 and got a size 40 IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TIGHT CLASSIC PUNK ROCK LOOK BUY YOUR TRUE SIZE/1 SIZE UP. DO NOT SIZE DOWN UNLESS YOU ARE TINY. This jacket fits like a glove and i cant wait to break it in. Leather is great and the hardware is also of amazing quality.
I have other jackets from Vanson, Aero, etc and quite a few Schotts including at 618HH, and I must say that the 613 is just the real deal, nothing to really say about it other than you have to wear it ALOT, and it'll get better then more you do.
Also, i'll say that Schott's service is always amazing. you can call them and they'll answer any question you have. their free shipping is super fast, bought jacket online Tuesday, was shipped out Wednesday, got it Thursday. cant beat that.
I was having a hard time deciding between the 613 and the 519. In the end I decided to go with the 613 because I'm planning on purchasing a bike in the near future and wanted a riding jacket. I have no regrets at all, my normal jacket size is 38 but I decided to size down to a 36, and I gotta say that jacket fits like a glove. When I pulled it out of the box, I knew it was a jewel. The jacket had a nice weight to it, and has a beautiful sheen. It's a little stiff right now but I can't wait to break it in and make it my own. I have read other reviews of how baggy the sleeves were, and that was one of the reasons why I was hesitant to purchase a 613 but since I ordered a size down, I don't find the sleeves to be baggy at all. It fits perfectly, it's starting to conform to my arms already. I now know why they call it a Schott "Perfecto", it's perfect and beautiful. Jerri and Gail are great too!
If you want a grandpa fit size up. If you want a comfortable slightly loose fit get your size. If your like me and you want a tight jacket that looks good and breaks in and molds to you over time SIZE DOWN! High quality jacket. Arms are not nearly as baggy the reviews make them out to be. At least not when you size down. Best jacket I've ever owned!
I got my 613, finally here, I feel unbreakable in it...
Thanks to Jerri Reyes for the great help for the size, outstanding customer support, five star for the 613 and five star for Jerri.
This Jacket is a amazing. If you want true quality look no further!
If you are a rock n roller or punk, Don't order one size up!
And thanks for the superb service.
I'll be back!
I've got the jacket and it's perfect. Incredibly stylish. Thanks to Jerri for her help and assistance. Schott definitely rocks!!!
I have the One Star Perfecto purchased new in 1971. It is a top quality thick leather jacket made to last. Wear a sweater under it, and you can ride in sub freezing weather.
It is now a little tight and I may have to purchase a new one. I would not consider any other manufacturer or consider owing imported chinese trash.
That was my response when I opened the box that contained my new and first ever Perfecto 613 One Star. I had to wait about a month for the production of this jacket in my size (40 but ordered a 42) and I will have to say it was well worth the wait. The quality of the leather is just amazing and I can also tell that it was put together very well. Even though I ordered a size bigger than I should have (38 is my true size but I was supposed to order a 40) I will have to say that it fits like a glove. I am very sure that this jacket will last me a very long time unlike the one made in "other" countries, which leads me to the very best part of this jacket, MADE IN THE USA!!!!!! Thank you so much Schott for producing a beautiful jacket of this quality!
this is a great jacket. service was great and shipping was super fast. Schott exceeds all my expectations
THE BEST Jacket OF THE WORLD~!
It is hard to find one in China.
I am Happy i have one.
I NEED MORE !!
I was so pleased with my Schott Easy Rider Jacket, that I also bought the One Star Perfecto Leather Motorcycle Jacket. The quality is the best. Detail is second to none. It fits perfectly. I would never buy a leather jacket from anyone but Schott NYC. I can't praise Shott enough or express my satisfaction, there are no words to describe it. The price is high but you get what you pay for. What am I rebeling against? Anyone who buys a jacket, from any place other than Schott NYC!
It is incredibly hard to articulate just how amazing this jacket is. The specs online do no justice to the actual product, but if you get a chance to try one on you'll immediately realize why the company has been in business so long and why they're the undisputed king of the field. Also, Gail was extremely helpful in talking to me about sizing, and the order was shipped so fast. Couldn't complain about a thing even if I wanted to.
Wonderful. Exactly what I wanted! not cheap but worth every penny AND made in the USA! Perfect- Will do business again for sure. Thanks Gail and Schott
