Ok here it goes. I have been looking for a tough rugged leather jacket for a while. I have leather jackets in brown, black, cordovan, except for brown. I recently decided to give the 519 in brown a try and boy am I glad I did. Such a minimalistic looking piece with a toughness to it. I recommend it to anybody who wants a mature looking jacket for their wardrobe
I am 6ft 4in tall and I weigh 235lbs. I lift so the weight isn’t in my gut. Ha! I have this jacket in XL and I LOVE IT! It fits so well and looks killer. I hope by writing this I help other athletic built individuals with their purchase of super sick jackets.
I definitely looked around a lot before finally pulling the trigger on the 519. In the end, the jacket fit me perfectly (Medium, I'm athletic 6ft and 177lbs) and am looking forward to breaking it in and creating my own journey in it.
The jacket is awesome, as expected by a company like Schott.
Heavy, soft leather, heavy-duty zippers, stitching and cut on point, everything about this jacket screams quality.
It looks seriously cool.
Slim fit, if you need space for your belly maybe consider going one size up, hasn’t been a problem for me tho, mine fits like a glove.
All in all: Buy this jacket, you won’t be disappointed!
I had been wanting this exact jacket for years and when I stumbled upon it in SF, it was love at first sight! The fit, weight, smell and quality were everything I was hoping it would be. I have had it almost two years now and it looks even better now it's worn in. I could have gone an XS but I like that I can wear a sweater underneath. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship... I cannot wait to get the same in brown.
Beautiful fit and quality! Very rock and roll. Very sexy!
Compliments galore with this jacket … on and off my Harley.
I'm 5' 8", 140 lbs, 39" chest and a size medium fits me nicely.
I did a lot of research and exploration to try to find my perfect leather jacket, and finally landed on the 519 Waxy Cowhide Perfecto. I'm so glad I did. I had to send back the first order (XS) because of a minor defect, and also to size up to a Small. The customer service team was great, and the exchange was very easy, even in the midst of the holiday rush. For me this was a pretty big investment, but this jacket is absolutely top quality; the leather is smooth and buttery, among the highest quality I've seen in a jacket, and will clearly just get better with age. This is really a lifetime garment: the kind you could easily pass on to your children, and is certainly worth the investment. As a reference to perhaps help others with sizing: I'm 6'2", 160 lbs,, slim with broad shoulders, and like a very fitted look. The XS was a 'glove' fit, and would have worked with just a t-shirt underneath, but even then was a bit tight around the waistband (especially if wearing a belt underneath). It looked great, but I realized that ultimately I wanted to be able to layer with this jacket, e.g. wearing a sweater underneath it, and that was simply not possible with the XS. The Small is perfect (or shall I say, 'Perfecto'?), and the best of both worlds: it's still very fitted, with the same tailored cut, but has just enough room to allow for some layering in the winter. If you're looking for that lifetime, 'ultimate fit' leather jacket that you'll never want to take off, this could well be the one, particularly if you appreciate the elegance of a very well tailored garment. I'll probably never need another leather jacket, but if I do I'll certainly be buying it from Schott.
I am 179cm and 74kg - the Perfecto 519 in SMALL fits perfect!
Purchased this jacket on a recent trip to NYC. I've worn it for about 2 weeks now and it is fitting me like a glove, very supple and soft. I chose the brown one and couldn't be happier. This is not my first Schott jacket and I look forward to a return visit to the store soon.
