be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I'm 5'6", 188 lbs, 42in chest. I ordered Large, but it was too big. Sleeves too long, but the jacket also doesnt taper much so the waist opening was quite loose, I can imagine that winter draft! The leather is beautiful, and pretty heavy.
The lining leaves something to be desired, doesn't add to the design character. I would love to see what it is like when broken in. Going to exchange for a Medium and hope for the best that it is a perfect fit.
This is the perfect jacket. It's stitched together well, the leather is thick, durable, and beautifully retro, and the cut is exactly as advertised. It's HEAVY, and I have no doubt it'll last me for decades.
Sleeve length is just right and the torso is slimming while not being obnoxiously tight.
Lining is cotton for the body and some kind of silky material for the sleeves, and it makes slipping the jacket on and off easy, despite not being broken in yet.
The jacket isn't cut as above-the-waist as most Schott moto/trucker jackets are and it makes the jacket ride up a bit when I'm driving or riding, but you'll only notice if you're trying to find problems with this jacket.
You'll become a badass when you slip on the retro 673. No more playing chicken with strangers walking down the street -- people WILL move out of your way! Men will respect you and women will smile at you more.
Zero regrets pulling the trigger on this purchase -- it's now my favorite belonging!
I did a search for "leather jacket made in USA" and when Schott came up I remembered that friends of mine spoke highly of them. Fortunately, somebody reviewed this same jacket on here and they gave their weight and height which was almost identical to mine so that alleviated my concerns about buying a jacket online. That's 6", 185-190 and the L fits just right. The double shoulder makes this really work. The leather is thick and the jacket is heavy. It doesn't feel like one of those cheap jackets people buy for the "look". This is the real deal.
This is the jacket I dreamed of. Modern fit, Incredible leather smell. Rich leather. Not to hot. Heirloom quality. I just don't have the words to express how righteous this thing is. Thank you, Schott!
Re: fit, I'm almost 6'4 with broad shoulders and relatively large arms (college athlete-type who has put on a nice insulation layer over the years ), currently 258lbs and dropping, so I bought the XL. It fits snugly, but perfectly, and will only get better with another 20lbs gone. If however I were still in the 260s/270s and not dropping, I would definitely want the XXL. Hope that helps some of you.
If you like the retro look with a heavy duty dark brown jacket you will love this Jacket
Has to broken in as the leather is very substantial
I believe this jacket weighs close to six(6) pounds
I got an XXL and the fits is snug or tight in the chest back and shoulders but loose in the waist. I am 6-1 and weigh under 200
Even at a higher price this jacket would be a bargain! One other thing i like about this jacket is the collar which is very high and keeps you warmer on those cold days. Keep up the good work Schott!
Schott really knows how to make a quality product.
The leather has a incredible patina, and the lining is a quiet high quality cotton. I am glad I pulled the trigger. You will be glad also.
very good jacket
I have been toying with the idea of buying a leather jacket for a number of years. I was looking to find something that would last me the rest of my life, fit my style and be age appropriate. I'm in my 40's and I don't ride, so I had a specific jacket type in mind.
I wanted it to be brown, lined, and have a centered zipper with a collar. I don't care for bombers with cuffs or jackets with buckles and belts . I also required it to have slash pockets. This jacket fit each and every one of my criteria. The inside pocket was a nice bonus and is perfectly deep to slide in a phone and not have it ruin the line of the jacket.
I am 6'1" and 185 lbs. The Large was what was suggested and it fits just as it should! It is stiff (for now) but will be well worth the break in. This jacket is heavy and built like a tank. It weighs over 5.5 lbs! The picture on the website looks a bit more "worn" than what I received (which I am happy with.) Because each jacket is unique it is probably tough to capture what each jacket will arrive like, but I feel it gives you the concept of its texture and look! Another reviewer touched on the "Leather Smell" I have to agree 100%- The Leather smell is intoxicating. I have gotten quite a few compliments on it already. Even had someone say "Your jacket smells so good!"
Overall, this jacket has been a perfect buy! Fit all of my requests, shipped fast, and looks great!
I pulled the trigger on this jacket after deciding my Schott P673 Storm needed a brother.
Incredible jacket. The leather is rich and heavy-duty. Slightly larger and longer than my P673 which I am thankful for given the storm is a hair small in places. Very similiar to an Aero Sheene I once owned and for roughly half the cost.
Very happy with the jacket, great piece all around. My fourth Schott jacket.
The leather on this jacket is incredible, nice and heavy. It is stiff, but will break in nicely. I originally ordered a size large, but it was too big in the body and long in the arms, so I exchanged for a medium. Large would've been ok if I wanted to layer underneath, but I wanted the jacket to fit snug. I am 5'11', 185 lbs, 32' waist, athletic build. Dress shirt size 16 1/2 and 34/35 arm. This is an awesome jacket at a great buy.
