be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
It is as they say stiff right out of the box. Perfect quality, perfect fit. Absolutely the best.
175cm, 74kg, size 40 is nice to me.
Very High quality hard leather. Will probably last at least a lifetime. Tight in the wrist when zipped which is what I wanted for motorcycling.
This jacket is literally the best and is definitely worth it. I got mine 18 years ago with my first motorcycle and have completely loved it. I’m doing the review now because I’m shopping for a Schott for my wife and I saw all these reviews and realized people need to know the quality they are getting when they buy one of these. It comes a bit stiff in the beginning but then breaks in over time to feel like second skin. I bought mine a little bigger and long in the sleeve because I’m 6’6” tall and wanted some room while riding. I’m a 44L in a suit. I got a 46L in the jacket and it’s just right for what I was looking to achieve. In hindsight, my correct size would also have fit great, but I just wanted a little extra room while riding. You’ll love it!
I had wanted this jackets for years but had trouble spending the money. I didn't have access to a retail outlet to see the jacket up close. Trusting what you see on the internet and believe the reviews can be difficult.
My jacket arrived yesterday. It is perfect. The workmanship is unbelievable. The leather quality is uniform and without defect. I feel like I should have paid more. I'm certain it will take some time to soften the leather so that it conforms to my shape.
I was bouncing between a 42 and 44 because of the size recommendations on the site. I wear a 42 for suits, etc and sometimes so can be larger than I like. I bought a 44 for this jacket. Glad I did. You should follow the recommendations on the site and probably size up from your normal unless you want it to be tighter than a glove.
The fact that Schott has been in business since the early 1900s, their Jackets are made right in NYC and James Dean wore their jackets is enough said. Once I opened my package and held this bad boy, I instantly knew this jacket was made with stellar quality and craftsmanship.
Wearing this jacket not only has boosted my testosterone levels and sky rocketed my sex appeal.
Thanks Schott for giving my the confidence to seize the day! I love this jacket and highly recommend Schott products to anyone who is looking for an American classic.
Absolutely the best leather jacket I’ve ever come across.... After much research and comparison study, I ordered this model in size 48. I’m 6ft, 195lbs with a 45in chest and 34in waist. This fits snug but loose enough with liner to add a sweatshirt. Arms are the right length for riding too. Solid thick leather -not like the thin crap from India or China. Just check out the video review on Revzilla if you’re serious. No armor? Hey, no big deal as you could wear an armored shirt if that worried. I have several leather riding jackets, all with armor inserted. I wanted something that was functional but also cool enough to wear out too without looking like Ironman. Great jacket. Thanks team!
I wanted a tough jacket. And I did want to have slim fit. With 42 chest, 31 waist and flat stomach I decided to order 641 in size 42.
I got exellent fit. And thanks to great cut I am able to make somersaults, push-ups and pull-ups without any restrictions to my movements.
It is not only for on-bike, also for off-bike.
Overall this is a great jacket, a couple of things could be improved:
* zipper setup for lining seems flimsier and of lower quality than the rest of the jacket
* wish it had inside pockets other than the one in the removable lining
Great fit and quality! Received very quickly and will definitely use this company again! Bought size as recommended by company!
