be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I'm somewhere between 6'1 and 6'2 with a 38 chest and ordered the 618 size 38. It arrived in 2 days of the order, but I decided it was just a tad short on me in the torso.
I decided to try sizing up one, but the size 40 in the 618 was on back order for a few weeks, so I decided to try the 613 in the size 40 (apparently it's the same cut as the 618; I read somewhere there is about a half inch difference between 38 and 40). The exchange was seamless, and they shipped the 613 out within a day or two of receiving the 618 I returned. I don't know if it's just in my head, but the size 40 seems just a bit longer and fits perfect.
I owned a knock-off Perfecto 618 when I was younger and couldn't afford the real thing. It really doesn't compare. This is such a solid, well-made, and classic jacket. You can just tell this thing will last forever. I'm glad I ended up with the 613 because the stars just make it that more cool and authentic. You can't go wrong with this one.
I love this jacket. The short length is perfect for me, typically I struggle getting leather jackets that aren't too long in the sleeves, but these are perfect.
Being on the shorter side (5'7") the short body on this jacket is great too.
If you get the right size, this jacket feels like it clips onto your body.
I wore it around the house everyday for a couple of weeks to start breaking it in. The first time I wore it out in town I had two different people compliment me on it, and one person asking about it.
I honestly think I'm getting rid of my other jackets now. That flimsy, soft leather stuff you get on the high street doesn't come close to this.
I think value wise, these Schott jackets are as good as it gets. Firstly, they are the original, so you're not cheaping out, you're buying authenticity. You get so much quality for your money, it's unreal.
It costs twice as much as a fashion brand jacket, because it's easily twice the jacket. But I think if you spend twice again, the gains will only be marginal.
If you have to get just one double rider style jacket, do it right, get the original.
Don't be put off by the heavy weight of the leather. Light weight "biker" jackets just look wrong. And you don't fully appreciate that until you try one of these.
Perfecto really is the most appropriate name for this jacket. I love it and it's put all my other leather jackets out of business.
I absolutely LOVE this jacket. Amazing quality item. Stiff in the beginning (as to expected- this a serious jacket) it’s famous for a good reason and worth every penny. This is a lifetime item. Extremely happy customer.
Excellent quality, fast shipping, great customer service
One of the classiest sharpest looking and greatest feeling jackets I’ve ever owned.. I love it!!!
I purchased the 118 Perfecto one year ago and it was perfect. The feel and the look make the jacket unique..Well I loved it so much that I got myself the the 613 Perfecto now and man does it feel and look great..The stars on the shoulders the fitted feel and the slight differences between both jackets make this one just as unique as the other..Similar, but different..Tough Durable Stylish Jackets meant to last more than one life time fore sure..Schott N.Y.C. Absolutely One of a Kind!
Hi its almost Perfecto....I do need some tailoring. I spoke to the store and they mentioned that if i need the sleeves shortened ..I could do that for $75.00 ...I believe I can do this at the Elizabeth St. store???
Please let me know it that is correct. If you have a contact person that would even be better so I can expedite the appointment or drop off .
Response from Schott NYC: You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on shortening sleeves.
Received the One Star 613 yesterday. Fit was ideal. I was concerned of sizing because I have never worn a Schott product before. I thought the recommended size 40 would be too large. After chatting with online help I decided to go with the recommended 'size up'. Couldn't be happier. Fit my shoulders exactly. No binding that I noticed although a bit loose around the waist (I am thin). Love the look I get wearing it and it will go well with the motorcycle. Seriously considering adding another jacket soon. Many thanks!!
I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas and he loved it, a bit pricey but he's worth it. Will definitely continue to check out this site for special occasion purchases.
This is the real deal of motorcycle jackets.
