be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
After hearing about Schott, while searching for a peacoat, I took the advice from a friend and tried them out. After a few orders and a few exchanges, the perfect size was found...now it was time to order a leather jacket! Again, after a few orders and exchanges, the 618 was the perfect fit for my body type (athletic, size 48 chest, 210lbs - ordered a size 50). The quality is great and you will not regret having a leather jacket that will last you a lifetime. Unfortunately, I do not live next to a company that sells their products but thanks to their return/exchange policy Schott made it easy to find the right jacket.
Fantastic jacket. It is my favorite
The original Biker Jacket! The quality is so good that I’m grateful the prices haven’t doubled. I love the fit and the customer service is always there to help you!
I am from Mexico, so I had to be sure about the size and not have to return the jacket and have to pay all the shipping costs plus import taxes again.
I spoke through the live chat with Denise and she replied that judging by my measurements:
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 180 lb
She suggested size 44 for a standard fit and size 42 for a slim fit. I decided on 42 and I must say that I could not be more happy and grateful, it fits me as its name says "Perfecto". Thank you.
It’s a great classic withholding what your dollar is worth. Right fit will last you a lifetime.
Great Jacket and quality. The saying you get what you pay for is very true. Fit is perfect and looks sharp. If your on the fence about purchasing, don't be. Pull the trigger.
So, I’m not a seasoned rider. I am in my early 30’s, growing up I never even sat on a motorcycle. Not even a moped. Rode a motorcycle for the first time in my life in August. Anyways, I didn’t expect anything to be very different. I got it cause I know, if I eat shit, this jacket will save at least SOME skin. I didn’t expect wearing it would improve the feeling of riding at higher velocities though, within legal limits of course. Smells good too.
TLDR: Schott has truly wonderful customer service (shout out to Jerri!), and makes exceptional jackets. If you’re on the fence about buying one of these great pieces, just do it! You won’t regret :)
I had been contemplating buying one of these jackets for over a year, getting caught between which style to choose, if it would fit well, and whether or not to spend the money on it. Finally narrowed it down to the 618 style for its slimmer cut compared to the 118 and lack of stars unlike the 613. Having input my measurements (39” chest, 17” shoulders, 31” waist; height 5’ 3”, weight 120lbs) into the size guide, I received a size that seemed too large for me so I emailed customer service with my measurements and Jerri sent a size chart for the jacket itself along with a size recommendation (size 36). Once I pinpointed the size I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the jacket. Within days it arrived and it was amazing! The new leather smell, the feel of the jacket, the fit, and the quality craftsmanship. Upon further inspection of the jacket however, I noticed that the back snap was missing from just below the nape of the neck to attach the optional fur collar. While I didn’t want this to bother me… it did since I considered this jacket to be an investment. I emailed Jerri and she gave me options for next steps to take, and I ended up filing an exchange and sent it back easily. The next jacket I received had come from their store in California (the first one came from the NYC store) and looked like it had been noticeably used, as if it were a display model, with wear on the cuffs, belt, and faded/rusty snaps. I emailed Jerri again with pictures and she explained that their stock had run low, but a new production lot would be ready in a few weeks and that she’d make a note to inspect the jacket before it was sent out to me. I decided to return and exchange the jacket once again. And I’m so glad I did because the third time was the charm and this jacket was truly exceptional! I think it fit even better than the first. I have room to layer with a sweatshirt and even without one it’s a nice snug fit, perfect for winter. Thank you to Jerri and everyone at Schott for a great experience!
This is my first ever leather jacket, I'm very pleased with the Functionality and Wear I went a size up I'm normally a 38 but the chart suggested I get a 40 just so I could layer in a sweater underneath. I've worn it a couple times so far, I'd like to wear it more often but the weather is still a bit too hot for me (60-70°)
Well worth every penny! 👍
Not much to say....this is a high-quality jacket. I ordered my true chest size, 44, and it fits great, Not too tight, with a little room to spare. Customer service was excellent as well.
