be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
Beautiful jacket.I knew it was cut a little tighter than my 118 so I ordered it one size up.Perfect fit. ordered it at lunch on Monday was delivered on Tuesday.Can't beat that.
So I was really excited about this jacket. I have owned other biker jackets in the past and Citroen from another company that fits perfectly but I’ve always wanted the real thing, the original. I finally decided to make the purchase. I am a short guy about 5’6” 130lb with a 36.5” chest. The fit guide initially told me to order a 38 which I knew was not right. The jacket I currently have is a 34. I like slim fit clothing as I’m pretty skinny and when you are shorter boxy looking shirts/jackets make you look pretty bad. Anyway, I decided to order the 36. I got my jacket and tried it on and the sleeves all the way down were HUGE! I mean comically large and super puffy in the biceps. It seemed a little large in the chest as well so I figured the 34 had to be a better fit all around. I got my 34 in today and it is exactly the same in the arms as the 36. I'm really disappointed as I assumed when paying over $800 for a jacket the fit would be on point. I’ve had substantially cheaper jackets fit so much better than this. So unfortunately this was definitely not a match for me. I wish this jacket would have worked out because the quality is amazing but the fit is just so bad. This is not a jacket for shorter skinny people. I will be returning this tomorrow. Also pretty bummed that I have to pay $9.95 to send it back.
This original looks STUNNING, for every Day, dressed up on a Date or twisting the throttle on the hi ways & back roads of Southern California, I like it so much I bought the black & the brown one, there thick & braking in very nicely, to me there well worth it, the quality is second to none.
I’m 5.11” 169lb chest 40” slim & tone,
jacket size 38 they fit me perfectly.
J'ai hésité un certain moment avant cette acquisition. C'est tout de même un certain montant! Par contre, dès la réception, j'ai compris pourquoi. La qualité du cuir est magnifique. Les coutures sont très solides, même chose pour les fermetures éclairs. Pour la grandeur, je mesure 5'7' et pèse 135 lbs, la grandeur 36 est parfaite pour une personne qui veut un look "skinny". Si vous voulez mettre un Hoodies en dessous, prenez plus grand.
It has been my goal to save and be able to purchase this classic American Bad Assery of a jacket! First off, thank you to Jerri, who took her time to help me choose the perfect size for me. I’m 5’9” 180lbs with a 42” chest. I told her I wanted it to be form fitting but still have full range of motion for riding. Since I live in Hawaii I won’t be layering with anything but a t shirt. I ordered wed and it shipped Thur and arrived here Friday. I opened a nicely packaged box and instantly was surrounded by the tantalizing scent of leather. The quality is out of this world with perfect attention to detail down to the last stitching. My wife caught me modeling it in the mirror and rolled her eyes but I’m sure she liked what she saw. Mahalo again for keeping American ingenuity alive and supporting riders across the country and world.
wore it for a week. love it so far. feels sturdy not cheap. got many compliments. i wear it in california and its perfect for its weather. felt snug and felt like i needed to size up but broke it down over a week and it feels nice.
Although there are already many reviews that tell basically the same story, I thought if I can help with the decision, I can also write my own.
So I’m a 15yr old Student from Germany and first of all, the shipping, although quite expensive as you will have to anticipate, was very very fast, it took them 4 Days to ship to another continent, even in corona times where most borders are closed and you cannot fly to any other country. Perfect.
My measurements: I‘m a 5 foot 8-9 inch guy with a 35 - 36 inch chest. I ordered a size 40 Perfecto 618 which was listed as very relaxed. But why should I order a very relaxed? It’s supposed to fit you like a glove! Because I will still grow and am working out frequently, I figured to be better safe than sorry is the right method for my case. The jacket will stretch over time and I want it to be a companion for life, I‘ll see if it can outlast me, but I will care for it and I already love it.
With many competitors in the (leather-) jacket industry, I went through many phases in my decision making, in the end, obviously, I decided to go with the real deal as you hear in many reviews. And although it just arrived today, it already feels like I made the right decision. I greatly encourage everyone in my age who already fell in love with this jacket, if you are tight on money, buy it used. If you want it to be your very own jacket, buy it new, it seems to be worth every penny, do not buy a jacket that is „similar“ or „just as good but a fraction of the price“ just because you want it right now, save up so it’s not „a“ jacket but rather „the“ jacket.
Okay, last but not least, the service. Fortunately I did not have to send it back once and everything on the jacket seems perfectly fine. But as I have seen in the process of buying it, even that should not be a problem even in Europe, but I don’t have experience in these cases so do not take this to seriously, it’s my theory but not a fact. But I called Schott several times and they could always help me and they were very friendly all the time.
Long story short: I believe I didn’t make a mistake by buying this brand new on Schotts website and not used and I encourage most people to buy one themselves, I love the jacket and to all the people who already wrote these mostly helpful reviews: thank you so much you helped me as good as I want to help others to make a decision.
Keep up the good work, Schott and maybe this wasn’t the last jacket I will buy from you!
I order this jacket because I was able to find a discount code. I know when it comes to leather jackets, unless you’re going custom made to measure, you don’t get much better than Schott so when I saw a discount code I hoped right on it.
I’m 5’10, 200lbs, 41.5 chest, 32 waist with wide shoulder and big arms (Schott is the first brand that has arm holes and sleeve width that fit me properly with the corresponding body size). I picked the 42 size and it fits me perfectly. The jacket is nice and comfy if I only wear a thin T-shirt or button down under neath. With a thick flannel shirt/sweater/hoodie it fit nicely snug but I expect it to get better as I break the jacket in. The sleeve length is a tiny bit long for a casual look but perfect if you want to wear it for riding (I wear a 16-32/33 dress shirt).
Took one star off because of some minor faults in finishing like where the stitches end or rejoin.
Note: the football and back flaps (idk what to call them) is a huge help with mobility, I was skeptical about them because I thought they would make the jacket look too bulky, I was proven wrong.

Hey Ya'll, this is my 5th Perfecto that I have purchased from Schott, besides many other products that I have bought over the years. The reason why so many, I have 3 sons, and they wanted to have one two, so the one I was wearing was taken from me. That is ok, because it makes me feel great to see that something that i loved over the years continues with my sons. Another fun fact, my dad did the same to me, a jacket he was wearing in his twens when riding his bike, he was handing to me when I started. Cheers, Albert
This is a great leather Jacket and I really like it. It’s my second one from Schott NYC. The other one is brown and I wear it often. I needed a new black one after I gave my old one to a friend because my ex wife was bothering me about having too much stuff. Keep you coat once you buy it because no one should be telling you what to do.
