be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
Solid, well made, runs small as I am only 5'8" and 145lb and a large is just big enough. Takes a good bit of break in despite it being "vintaged". Simple and clean design is appealing. Not too much metal. Hefty feel so I would not call it lightweight.
This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. The leather is excellent. Beautiful finish and not shiny. It takes about six to ten hours of wear to full break in. It's a slimmer fit. I am 6' 2" and weigh 175 lbs (slim but not skinny). I usually wear a medium in just about everything, but the large fit perfectly. You might need to size up for the 654Vn. It's not too heavy. I live in a warmer climate (rarely gets below 40 degrees), and I will wear it for three seasons (not summer).
Plain and simple right? You are on this website cause you know it’s quality. You’re looking at this jacket cause you know, even though it’s s a lot of money. It’s going to probably be enjoyed by some one you pass it down to. It’s built that well. If you’re looking for a slim fit, size down a size. But keep in mind, it’s going to be a labor of love breaking it in
Got this jacket last week. It is my second Schott jacket. Very minimalistic and sleek. Have it in the brown color. Is a bit tighter than my other Schott despite same size, which is in keeping with reviews. But think the streamline fit looks good with this style. I am 6‘0“, 175 lbs with 40 inch chest. Is good with t-Shirt or a button up, but not able to wear sweater (but with this style wouldn’t want to anyway) Any tighter and would for sure go up to large. Definitely looking forward to some cooler weather to wear it. Have my eye on the 2B3 now for the winter.
Got it in brown, wonderful colors and feel of the leather. Not as stiff or as heavy as I was expecting. Nice lining too.
I've tried on multiple brands while looking for a leather jacket and could immediately tell the difference in quality when I tried on a Schott. It fits great, looks even better and now I cant wait to get another one!
This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. The Schott quality is as good as it gets. Timeless style that looks way cooler when you put it on than the dorky model on the website wears it. This is the classic cafe racer jacket you want. I would recommend up-sizing one size bigger than they list on their size chart unless you have a really small frame or narrow shoulders. I'm 6'1" and needed to swap up to an XL after the website recommended Large. The waist length is fairly short compared to most normal jackets so it feels sort of weird at first but it's right for a leather. Overall you're going to be stoked if you get this jacket!
I’ve been on a search for an awesome leather jacket for quite a while. My search is finally over. This jacket is perfect for me on many aspects: Toughness, cut and look. It’s pricier than some but 100% worth it.
I picked up this jacket recently at the Schott store in SF. This is my second Schott jacket and again the quality is top-notch. The "vintaged" leather has a nice broken in feel and more of a matte finish. I was initially torn between this style and the 530 cafe racer with the front pocket and bi-swing back. I ultimately picked the 654VN since it had a better fit and seemed more practical for day-to-day things. I also really liked the classic, clean look of it and the nod to the 1950s English cafe racer history.
6'1", ~220lbs and 43" chest and went with XL (with room to layer underneath).
Just received the Jacket few days ago. I choose the size Small and it's perfect for me with 36" chest. The jacket has a soft outer skin, nice skin feeling and great smell. If you have a slim body, I think it is a great jacket for you.
Very glad to have the jacket from Schott.
