This is a heavy (thick leather), stiff jacket which will take some breaking in. As usual, it’s a well-made, high quality jacket. As stated by others, the jacket color is very cool and the leather is not shinny. The fit is as per the guide; being 5’ 11”, (ordered 2XL) the sleeves are one inch too long, but I’m OK with it. This is my third Schott jacket in two months and I plan to buy another; a lighter one (either light or medium weight). I like Schott’s jackets, they are of high quality leather and build. Go USA!!!
I have been eying Schott jackets for years. I have several other leather jackets and wondered did I need another. After 2020, I decided to take the chance and order one. Now I wonder why I waited so long. I have never seen anything like it. Warmth, Quality. Design. This jacket checks all the boxes. The quality of the leather is like nothing I have seen before in a jacket. The first day I wore it I had compliments all day long, I can't really say enough about the Quality and Look of this jacket. The fit is amazing as well. Someone asked it I had it tailored. I look forward to many years of wear from this purchase.
This is an absolutely beautiful leather coat. The leather is heavy and of a very high quality. Shipping was very quick. I'm extremely happy with my purchase, no buyers remorse whatsoever.
I love Schott jackets. After weeks of deliberation I had to pull the trigger. I’m ~155, 5’10” thin/ athletic and take a 40R suit jacket. Using the sizing guide for a slim/fitted look suggested S. It fits like its custom, I can get a sweater and tee shirt layered under the coat and it fits great. Exactly the fit I wanted. As others have said, it is not glossy at all; more of a matte chocolate color-like the Labrador! The build quality is without flaw, it’s got a thin and to these eyes very cool and retro but timeless liner. The thing is made from some serious thick and stiff leather-the only jacket I’ve ever had that needs some extensive break in. It’s the leather jacket version of heavy salvedge jeans. I love the understated but timeless look. It smells amazing it’s built GREAT. The inner pocket is a bit deep but I’ll never lose anything in it; not sure I’ll ever use the chest pockets as they’re kind of unwieldy when worn. I’m hoping it’ll get more compliant as I wear it. It’ll last a lifetime and never look dated. Really happy I got this! Thanks Schott.
Love this jacket. I’m 5’9” and 180 Pds. Stiff at first but as I wear it it softens up and I sense it will over time get better and better. Well made and fits great. Inside pocket perfect for cell phones or gloves/mask. Sleeve ends at thumb base. Highly recommend it.
Too long, didn't read version: Bite the bullet, get the jacket. It is amazing and absolutely worth it.
Slightly longer version: Everything about the buying process, the shipping and most important, the jacket is just A+
Jacket Quality: The pictures do not do it justice. It is exactly what you hope it is, and then better. No shine, just a very rich, deep, chestnut brown like color. Pockets without the zippers are deep enough to not let your keys/money fall out and the design makes it that you can put a lot in the pockets without it affecting the overall look. No bulging pockets.
Jacket Fit: I'm 5'10, 210 lbs, around 15% body fat, with 19 inch shoulders measurement for clothing, 22 inch total shoulder width. 45 inch chest. I went for the L, by following the fit guide. It is just perfect. Note, that if you have larger shoulders than a 19 inch measurement, you will get into trouble with L, I would then go for XL. I can not easily get into the sleeves as it is, just at the edge of what I can get away with. But once it is on, it looks fantastic. Great fit around arms, chest and not too baggy around the waist. Nice, tapered look. It just looks perfect. The way you want it to look.
Shipping: Express shipping from USA to the middle of nowhere in rural Ireland arrived within 3-4 days. Yes, that quick. Fantastic!
Overall: This might be the best piece of clothing I've ever owned. This is built like a tank, but breaks in really quickly. It is warm, not too heavy, and looks masculine. I love it.
You cannot go wrong with this purchase. Even my hardcore vegan fiancee saw it and was directly smitten with it. Now that is saying something!

Thank you Schott!
This jacket is a Heavy thick leather jacket made very well and a jacket fits awesome The leather is top quality
Very pleased with this jacket, particularly for the price. Materials and construction appear to be excellent. This is an actual Moto jacket, and so it is heavy and the leather is very thick and firm out of the box. I've been wearing mine for about a week, and it is starting to soften up and form to me the way cowhide is supposed to. What was stiff and uncomfortable at first, already feels like it was made for me. Mine isn't as distressed or as shiny as the one in the photos, which is fine by me. In terms of fit, just use the fit guide that Schott provides (and notice that it offers three different settings - slim, standard, relaxed).
Note that Moto jackets are supposed to fit snug, unlike a Bomber that is more relaxed. Also be prepared for the sleeves to be a touch longer than you would find on a casual leather jacket (again, a moto jacket feature). The cuffs on mine stop at the base of my thumb, which is exactly right where they are supposed to for this style. Again, this is the real thing, not a fashion version.
It is great to see such high quality items being made in the US. You could spend a LOT more on a leather jacket without doing any better. Highly recommended for those want the real thing.
Great jacket, top quality materials and fit, I'm 6ft 165lbs fit condition I went with a small and fits like a glove
I had a 641 horsehide jacket that I loved, but I lost weight (good) and it was too big for me (bad). Gave it to my son. I've been looking for a replacement that didn't break the bank and ordered this last Tuesday and it arrived Sunday. I'm 5 10, 165 lbs and 60 years old. The guide told me to order a large, but based on some of the reviews I ordered a medium and it fits absolutely perfect ... with a little room to spare. VERY heavy weight leather and the brown is more of a chestnut color. Don't mind the weight of it because I'm wearing it for protection, but saying that, I would not wear it when it gets over 80 degrees outside. Yes, it's a little stiff out of the box, but that doesn't bother me at all. Has the usual high standard of quality that Schott is known for. The finish on the leather has just the right amount of markings on it to make it looked that's it's a well worn jacket. Most of my riding jackets are not used for anything off the bike. This one may be the only exception because it just looks that good. Love it.
