They make good stuff (material wise). Not sure about sizing/fit though.

Check Schotts website you can browse by category of fit. There leather is alright very thick and stiff, I wouldnt consider any of there jackets fashionable, there more biker-esqe. If you ride and thats your style you'll probably love them, if not and you dont have money to put out for RO. MMM, Julius, CP etc. I would save for one a high quality brand. But if you wouldnt even consider spending 1k + on a jacket I would just buy a cheap one for around $200. Another good option if you have an unlimited amount of patience you could wait 20+ weeks and order a TOJ.

I have a 641 in horsehide that I got new and a c.80s-90s cowhide perfecto courtesy of eBay. The horsehide I particularly love; breaking it in was a hell of a chore but going on 3 years now it's supremely comfy.

The TLDR I guess is that they both are exceptionally well made and durable, but not at all subtle or delicate in terms of fit and materials compared to softer leathers from the likes of TOJ, RO, or whoever.

Stay away from the Schott N.Y.C. diffusion line, produced for the European market (http://www.schott-store.com/fr/3-cuirs) The jackets are cheaper than the mainline jackets, they have less detailing and the quality/construction is very bad. I bought one of their jackets in the sale in a UK store and thought I got a good deal. Back home, I noticed that the leather felt rather cheap. When comparing it to pictures of other Schott jackets online, I saw that it was not the same thing. Also two zippers stopped working after a day. Off course I brought it back.

Even though I like the look of some Schott jackets, my experience put me off this brand. Having a low quality line and not making it clear that it is different from the main line is bad business practice. There are more options in this price range.

the online schott store gives you an option to order jackets based on your measurements, and i've heard the person that helps with sizing is pretty helpful. 

 

edit, cont. 

 

the perfecto with the more "fashion" fit is the 626, although it is longer. 613 is the classic one star one (worn by marlon brando), which is a bit more cropped and boxy. not sure about the other ones.

I've had two, a Perfecto 613 and a 626. The 613 is pretty much squarish and boxy, made more for real riding than anything else. I really had an issue with the 'butterfly'-like sleeves, they were cut pretty huge. The leather is tough and takes a while to break into.

 

The 626 comes from their mid-weight collection. Leather's a bit softer (they say it's made from Icelandic cowhide), and the lining is just flannel compared to padded nylon (?) to the 613/618 etc.

 

Cutting is still a bit off, you won't get the all slim Saint Laurent or TOJ look for example, definitely more of a classic look.

I think they made another one that was coated leather that you might be thinking off because I remember seeing it on sufu for sale.

They actually gave me the information that it was FW12, and they only had a limited stock when they were available. Ssenses customer service is great. 

lol! what? Ssense still had it in stock and then sold it to you for 30% off? Scroll back either this thread or sale thread and people were talking about why nobody kopped it at 50% off and then not even at 70%. I remember even Aloha Rag let it hit 65%. I remember that jacket exactly and remember people hating the leather so unless you got it dirt cheap it really is not worth it IMO. But, if you like it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I bought it from yoox for about 60% off retail. 

 

I always wanted a matte leather jacket, and wanted a 5-Zip pretty badly for awhile, so this jacket for me is dream come true. Another plus for me is that its thinner leather, so I could wear it more often.  Im sure its not everybodys style when it comes to leather, but cut/fit and look is all that matters to me.

 

Ill enjoy it. :D
