be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
So I was sitting at home watching American Pickers and thought how cool it would be to have a vintage looking motorcycle jacket. That true 50’s look, all beat up but told a story when you looked at it. I hopped on the inter webs in search for such a jacket when I found this one. Soon as I saw it, I had to have it. Used the fit guide which suggested I should get a medium. Definitely was skeptical about that size since I’m typically a large, but I got it anyways. Turns out I should’ve went with my instinct and got a large. Once I got the right size it fits perfect. So I’d trust your gut on which size you think you’ll need. The difference between the fade on the medium I got and the fade on the large I got is quite drastic. Being able to see that really lets me know that each jacket is truly unique. If you’re like me and you came across this jacket looking for the same thing I was then I’m here to tell you that you will not be disappointed. Mike Wolfe eat your heart out.
So impressed with the quality and durability of this jacket. This is the type you have your entire life.
I usually never write reviews, however I decided to do so because the reviews written by others really helped me in choosing the correct size.
I am an athletic male : Height 5.7ft. Weight 176lb.
chest : 42.5inch..
I wanted the jacket to feel snug and not loose so. based on many reviews, i leaned towards Large. I also contacted customer service and Denise confirmed Large would be my size.
I have to say that the jacket fits very well. The shoulders and the length of the sleeves are perfect and it fits perfect just around the arm pits. I would have preferred a slightly slimmer cut but its not the end of the world ! it still looks great.
At first, the jacket will feel stiff and hard....keep in mind that its heavy, but I am sure the more its worn, then softer it will get.
its worth the investment !!!
Excellent no regrets!
Nothing but good things from me and the people who've seen it.
Solid jacket. I mean 'solid'. The leather is weighty and durable, with zippers as hefty as tank treads.
I'm 5'11, 38" chest, 175lbs, and a Medium fits me the exact way it's shown in the model pics. It's a relaxed fit in between form fitting and baggy. I can pinch about 2" of extra material between my arm and the sleeves, the torso, about a fist full when zipped, and the length buts the jacket buckle about in line with my pants belt. The length of the sleeves stop just short of the base of my thumb.
It's maybe not the most insulated jacket (though it certainly heats up when it get's warmer), but it's nothing a long sleeve or anything similar couldn't fix.
I look forward to having this for a good while.
I wear it to work, wear it to ride, wear it to dinner, wear it to everywhere and I will wear it to my grave as somebody says it here lol. Love everything about this jacket. It will feel much better once it breaks in.
It is all you hope it will be and more. So, order it. Plain and simple it will absolutely be everything you are wanting even now while you are shopping. Wow. Just...wow. If I could guarantee your satisfaction, I would...but heck...Schott has you covered there. Let me close with...WOW.
I am 6'1", 42.5" chest, 186lbs. The sizing guide says Large and it is dead on accurate. I want to layer and on the high side for chest so wasn't sure if I should get L or XL, I am glad I ordered the L as it fits perfect with a t-shirt or sweatshirt underneath. The only place it is a little bit snug with the sweatshirt is in the shoulders, when I reach for my ape hangers on my Harley. The XL would have been too big, because I can put the belt on the last hole with a T-shirt I have a 34" waist. Lastly, I was deciding between this and the 118, but I am glad I spent the extra money and went with the PER70. No way I could beat the 118 up enough to make it look this good!
I have dozens of leather jackets.
I like leather jackets very much.
The jacket I bought this time has a good fit and a good design.
However, due to the characteristics of leather, the zipper is slightly crumpled.
However, it does not affect the overall style.
I will wear it when I ride Harley-Davidson.
If I have a chance, I want to buy more products.
I live in Holland and took a risk purchasing this online because they don’t sell it in Europe. The jacket looks awesome and fits really well. I needed a Large I’m 175cm tall and weigh 88 kilos atheletic build. If your looking for a classic vintage look this is your jacket. No regrets buying this.
