be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
This jacket met my expectations. The color is perfect, the thickness and quality of the leather is spot on.
I am 6'4" 215lbs with an athletic build and I got the XL , it fits perfect in the arms and shoulders. I would maybe consider getting the stomach area taken in a bit because I like it a bit close fitting but I am not going to do that because it is so good naturally and I don't want to mess with it. The ONLY thing I will do is bring it to a leather tailor in NYC to get a liner sewn in to the sleaves. Because there is no liner it's difficult getting your arms in and out of the leather because of the friction. But once you have the jacket on you don't care cuz it's so sweet.
I am going to buy another one with a collar in black.
If you are all about the feel, grade and look of leather this is it!!! From the random shading/mottled look and the slight waxy feel...do not worry it is not at all sticky, The weight is medium to heavy but with a broken in feel right out of the box. I have returned or resold other Schott jackets because of the leather and sometimes it is very hard to look at a picture and really be able to figure out if you will like the type of leather. This stuff ranks up there with the Horween that was used for the Context D-Pocket and the current model 619... its heavier then what is used for the 619 but almost as easy to move in.
The only change I would have liked to see would have been a one piece back panel but that would have added $$ to the cost. If you like this style and it measures out to fit your body type buy it before it is sold out!
After much back and fourth with Schott’s customer service and product design team, I ordered a size large. I have a 42 size chest, am 5’11”, weigh 165 lbs, and typically wear a medium: however, I was told that this jacket fits like a slim. The large arrived and it was way too big. Fortunately the size medium was restocked despite me being told by the customer service rep that the jacket would not be restocked in size medium (didn’t understand her confusion). When my exchanged medium arrived, it fit perfectly. I can tell that I am going to love my second jacket from Schott. Enjoy!
I'm a pretty big guy, 6', 230lbs. I have the XL size.
I saw it in the Schott store and didn't think such a slim cut jacket would look nice on me. Wife convinced me to try it on, and i bought it on the spot. Just waltzed in to the store, and walked out with something thats not only made in america, but smells, looks and fits great. It slimming, and just makes any thing else you are wearing all the better. Nice pair of boots, jeans, Tshirt or simple black sweat shirt/sweater and you are golden.
The unlined interior does make putting it on over a loose sleeved sweat shirt a bit of a challenge, but it's not that bad.
Build quality is great, zipper smooth, smells awesome.
Compliments are abundant and everyone wants to know where they can get one.
I’m totally satisfied with my purchase. I’m 5-11 190 and happy with my size large. I got the brown and can already tell it’s going to patina beautifully over time. I have the 626 and can notice and feel a difference. This jacket is light and soft. I like how it has a more toned down look to it. It feels like a second skin. Right out of the box you can smell the leather. There is nothing like a Schott feel.
It would be very easy to write a long story about this jacket. In short, don't stress, this is the quality you hope it will be! I was worried when I ordered it, when it was on it's way, when it arrived super quick from half way around the world and even when I opened the box. However, this is as described and more. yes people notice it for all the right reasons and some will be envious for good reason too. Mine is wearing in great and developing the exact character you'd hope for in less than week of wearing it. if you like timeless cool quality, buy one!
Amazing quality leather, run a little big because is not a tight jacket, love the leather colour, thanks for amazing serviceably in one week in my home!
Never spent this much on a coat before, this is by far the best I've ever owned. Worth every dime. The quality is unreal. I wore it to work and people wanted to try it on.....wow..
There is nowhere else you could find this kind of jacket. The quality, design, and style are rare and hard to find. This jacket met and exceeded my expectations.
I just received this jacket and it looks great. Perfect lightweight for spring-autumn weather and the heavily waxed quality means it’s already showing some great patina from wear and I assume that will only improve with time. Since it’s light it feels like it will break in easily. I ordered a size 2XL as I’m a 48 chest and it fits well. A little restricting through the upper arms but I hope that will improve with breaking in.
My only issue is that since it is unlined it is difficult to pull on and off quickly since it sticks to my shirt and arms. It makes it a bit awkward when you walk in and take your jacket off only to get stuck in your sleeves for a moment. A simple satin or cotton liner to add smoothness would go a long way.
