Single Rider Steerhide Leather Motorcycle Jacket

STYLE: 641

The Schott NYC model 641 is a true classic racer leather motorcycle jacket made from thick steerhide leather. With its stand-up collar and its bi-swing back it always makes for a clean, perfect fit.


    The classic race leather motorcycle jacket comes in the original steerhide leather. Stiffer out of the box the jacket will break in and develop beautiful patina over time.

    Before I review I am 5’9” 160-165lbs with chest size of 42.5” (measured without a shirt on) with a pant waist size of 32”…This jacket is awesome and Jerri on the customer support side helped answer all of my questions.. It has a modern sporty style and an athletic fit. It’s heavy duty and when they say stiff, it does come stiff but it will break it just fine. The warmth this jacket provides is incredible and I believe when they say it’ll last 10 + years! Zippers are of very high quality and the length that the sleeves of the jacket come down are just below the wrist. In other words it doesn’t come close to the knuckles but it’s not too short to where your wrists are exposed. If you’re debating on this jacket, don’t, just buy it! The measurement tool provided by the site is accurate, so long as your measurement for chest size is accurate. It’s deff worth the money and their customer service will fix any issues or answer and questions you have promptly!

    This jacket rocks, thought it would be stiffer from other reviews, but its pretty soft and looks great. I'm a 46 chest and went with a size fifty, could have gone smaller easily but like loose clothing plus like layering option. money well spent, don't see any negatives about this jacket.

    It is as they say stiff right out of the box. Perfect quality, perfect fit. Absolutely the best.

    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!
