I got a brown 618 size 42 just to have something different, and I really love it. I’m 5’’8” 155lbs athletic w 41-42” chest, 19.5” shoulders, 33” waist, 25.5” sleeve, and this is my best fitting 618/613; - my shoulders make the fit hard as a size 44 618 is too big in the body/belly….anyway the build quality is outstanding, and this jacket is lighter than my size 42 618h and 613. For comparison, a 141 size 40 fits me perfectly. A 118 size 40 fits excellent a little snug in the shoulders but still really love it, a 118 size 42 fits great for layering a thick flannel
I've had my 618 for about 20 years and it still works almost as flawlessly today as when I bought it all those years ago.
I say "almost' because In 2006, I low-sided myself on my cycle on a sharp turn on fine aggregate that I did not see. I slid on my back about 10 feet.
That slide burned an apple sized hole in the upper left side of the back of the jacket and damaged the left side shoulder epaulet and left scrape marks all over the back. But I was fine, other than being irritated with the accident.
A little Doc Blacks leather coloring and the jacket was functional. Buddies told me to get the 618 fixed. Why? It tells a great story now and every time I don the 618, I remember that day and have not had an accident since.
The 618 is not only a classic, but it works to protect the rider due to superior materials and construction. Thanks Schott!
This jacket is simply incredible! High quality and a great sharp look! I highly recommend it!!!
It can be a bit bulky and heavy, but it's the real deal. Quality is top notch.
You can't beat this timeless classic!
Best jacket I've ever bought in my life!
Schott Perfecto jacket is as always the best and irreplaceable. My old jacket that I was wearing in my youth became small so I ordered a new one a size bigger. I gave the old one to my wife as she started riding a bike. It's now one of her favorite pieces of clothing.
The only small disappointment was that the new jacket had a different label inside. It was not canvas vintage looked with "Union made" on it. It was just a nylon one. And the pockets fabric was somewhat thinner.
Other details were all the same. Thank you Schott for continuing the tradition of making quality garments in the country that they come from. Keep up the good work!
I received this gift prior to Christmas and my birthday; I could not wait to wear it to start the break in process! I am a huge fan of anything made in the USA by American workers! This much like my 2 boots and another leather coat all have that great American quality. The online sizing guide was spot on and the fit is great overall. just a bit snug in my shoulders (I have large shoulders and upper arms). I look forward to how it feels once broken in. If you want an awesome piece of American history and quality this is the jacket!
Ordered a 48 & was too baggy - return was quick & a 46 replacement just as quick Jacket does not bunch up when riding and the sleeves are just right - Very Nice ! Have a 46 chest & 46 jacket Thank You Schott !
high quality jacket for an incredible price, fast shipping, and excellent customer service! there is no better place to get a leather jacket
After a long research, I decided to buy this jacket, the Perfecto 618. I'm located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the delivery experience was straightforward, I got my jacket 6 days after I ordered it.
The jacket: the Perfecto 618 is a top notch jacket. Details and quality materials are in every single piece of it. The jackets is harder than I've expected, taking longer its breaking-in, but it does not mean you cannot enjoy the process, it feels really good when you wear it.
The platform size tool recommended me 38, but after taking measures I decided to go for a 36, and my decision was certain. I think the size tool oversizes a little bit, you can take 1 size less than the tools says and your jacket will fit good, specially after the breaking-in.
