As another reviewer stated, this is the last jacket you’ll ever need. This is my 4th jacket from Schott and I’ll never buy a jacket anywhere else. The leather is durable and will undoubtedly last a lifetime. The interior lining is warm and while the jacket itself is a little heavy, it doesn’t feel that way while wearing it. I’m looking forward to breaking it in!
With all that being said, I did experience some difficulties with sizing. I’m 5’3 (I’m a DDD chest) and normally a size small in clothing and jackets. My jackets from Schott range between S and M, and the size guide here recommended a S. I opted for a M so I could wear a sweater underneath. The M was too tight in the arms, chest, and shoulders. I have a somewhat small frame but broad shoulders and arms due to weightlifting and the M felt dangerously tight. The returns process was easy and I purchased a L instead. While definitely bigger on me as a whole, it’s much more comfortable and I don’t feel restricted while wearing it. I would recommend sizing up on this jacket unless you plan on wearing just a t shirt underneath, and if you have a bigger chest or broader shoulders going up two sizes.
I purchased this jacket and pre-order became back-order. Customer service was outstanding, they answered every question I had and were very tentative.
The arrival: I nearly died at the excitement I had because this jacket was already so special to me (Iv’e wanted this for so long) the jacket was so beautiful and perfect! Anyone ordering, please take this advice.. the size guide is spot on. Make sure to measure exact inches and do not go by pant size or anything. The fitting was PERFECT! Even if I lose a few pounds or gain a few, the jacket will mold to you.
Jacket was beautiful, well made, the real deal. The size guide recommended a M, but I wanted room to wear a sweater under it if needed, so it told me a L would be a very relaxed fit. It was so tight across the shoulders and chest, I’m exchanging it for an XL. I typically wear a size 8, so this was surprising. I’m hoping it will be a better fit.
I bought this 5 months ago but shortly went to back order. Customer service was great! They were there with my every need and quick responses. I appreciate that very much in a company. As for my perfecto, the sizing guide was spot on. Do not go by your pant size or bra size, you need to plug in your actual measurements and the jacket will fit like a dream. This is literally everything I could ask for and more from a moto jacket. It’s beyond beautiful. I can’t wait to see how it fits over time. ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY!
I bought this 137W as a birthday gift for my ol lady.
It goes without saying that this is a VERY high-quality jacket that will outlast both of us, but in additon to materials quality, construction and comfort (she reports that it is the best jacket she has ever owned in her 38 years on this planet): it looks INCREDIBLE. Like she becomes a superhero the moment she puts her Perfecto on.
Her words when her 137W first graced her shoulders: "Oh my God. This is an amazing jacket. Am I cool enough to pull this off?"
Obviously yes, and the jacket commands attention/admiration and radiates cool wherever it is; I can easily understand her initial trepidation/uncertainty, and while I believe her to be the most beautiful creature I have yet to lay my tired eyes upon, anyone who sees her in this jacket compulsively repeats the sentiment to her verbally.
Needless to say: Schott is still making exceptional garments (right here in the USA!) and I have no doubt that this jacket will outlast the both of us.
In summary: Excellent American-made, classic piece of highly-wearable, stylish and top-quality clothing.
Appropriately heavy without being burdensome, built to last while effortlessly screaming relaxed ease, classic and tough while remaining grounded and not-pretentious, warm enough for Portland winters without roasting you in the summertime: this is a truly exceptional jacket.
Sure it ain't "cheap" but it ain't cheap, dig?
Cry once and enjoy life. You'll still be just as happy 15 years down the road, and you'll remain comfortable and look great the entire time.
This is my first leather jacket. I had decided long ago that I wanted a quality leather jacket from the beginning. Definitely a purchase I do not regret whatsoever. Putting it on feels amazing!! I am only planning on using it with a shirt underneath. I love my jacket.
I adore my Perfecto - it's fits beautifully, the leather is such gorgeous quality and it looks INCREDIBLE. I was initially worried about the price, but it is absolutely worth it and I'll keep this jacket forever. I also had a great experience with exchanging when I needed a different size, so thank you Schott for making that so easy and stress free. I am in love - this really is the perfect leather jacket.
This is my dream jacket. It is rock solid and not a paper thin fashion version, so be sure that you are looking for that style and quality before you buy. Also consider sizing up if you want to layer. It is an investment piece and will last forever. Shipping is fast and easy. Thank you Schott!!
Coolest jacket ever. Looks amazing and I get compliments everywhere I go. Good for any weather depending on layering. I can wear it in low 60s with just a T-shirt, or I can wear it in minus 20 with windchill layered over a couple shirts and a vest. Wind means nothing to this jacket.
I can’t believe how gorgeous this jacket is. I was looking for a new leather jacket and was unhappy with the selection I had found online - until I came across the Perfecto. It’s so well-made, and feels edgy yet luxe. The more I wear it, the more I love it. I see myself wearing this for years and years.
