Schott 641 Cafe Racer Jacket
classic motorcycle jacket
I am 6 feet 2 inches tall and about 195 pounds. My chest measurement is just under 42 inches. In dress shirts I wear a 35 inch sleeve. The Schott 641 jacket in size 44 is about as good as it gets for me. I have room for a sweat top or light fleece if I want but the jacket looks and feels great with just a single layer. When riding the sleeves could be maybe a 1/4 inch longer or so but its really not an issue. The jacket is very well made and meets all expectations I had after watching the video and reading reviews else where. The jacket was fairly comfortable when new and after about 1400 miles on the bike it is already well on its way to being broken in. Very comfortable at this point.

Unbeatable Quality Jacket
This was the first motorcycle jacket I bought when I started riding back in 1999, and after 16 years it's still kicking strong. When I "upgraded" to a textile, armor-clad, more technical riding jacket, I felt like I was cheating on my wife. I still pull on the old Schott on weekends for kicking around town. It's got seriously heavy leather that's aged beautifully (with admittedly very little care) and all of the hardware still works perfect (YKK zippers, so you wouldn't expect less). And, it simply looks bad-a$s. I'm looking forward to the day I can hand this down to my son. Or daughter.

Just what I expected
Super fine quality construction and made in USA. Leather was actually not as thick or stiff as I expected - I have a Roland Sands Ronin jacket and might actually be a little thinner (but much better build quality). I have 38" chest, 33" arms and 31" waist. Found the size 38 too snug as I wanted a more relaxed around town, Off and On the bike fit, so went with a size 40 and it is perfect. Really impressed with arm range of motion as in my Ronin I can not lift my arm over my head or cross them (granted I bought a size Small which was a mistake). I am looking forward to breaking this in and making it mine!

Super premium quality
I am 6'2" and weigh 205 with a 36 inch waist and wear a 35" arm length dress shirt. I purchased a size 46 and it fits great. Enough room for a light sweatshirt (with fur liner zipped in) and the arm length is perfect. It has a proper cafe fit but not a crazy thin taper. The jacket has bullet proof construction, is made in the USA and should last a lifetime.

High Quality is Schott
I have this exact jacket. I had it before RevZilla started offering them. I can say that Anthony is spot on in his descriptions of this jacket. It will out last me for sure. I love this jacket. I hope RevZilla will work with Schott and develop a "Ronin" style jacket in black and brown. That would be so cool. A nod to Roland Sands here, but this jacket should be in everybody's collection.

the jacket is quality and comfortable
Bought this jacket without trying it on. Took the risk and I'm very happy I did. I'm 5 11" tall 33 waist and 42 chest. I really wanted a nice fitted looking jacket so ordered the size 42 and it fits me perfect. I only plan to wear this with a tshirt but there is still a little room left for maybe a thin sweater. But I think the zip out liner is more than enough to keep you warm if needed.
I recommend you order your chest size unless you want more room for extra clothing or warm gear.
The jacket rests just below my belt line and the sleeves are right on my wrist, not too long or short
It's better fitted to an athletic build.
The main zipper looks and feels really strong and stands out as its very silver. I am very happy with my purchase and revzillas fast postage. I only awarded low for airflow as there is no vents apart from the main zipper, but is the look I wanted. I don't think elbow protection could be worn underneath as the sleeves don't have a lot of extra room but the leather is thick.

Quality with style and durability
I have had my Schott's 641 Jacket for 50 years. I didn't buy it from Revzilla because the internet didn't exist, and neither did Revzilla. But they do, and if this one ever wears out I will buy the next one from Revzilla. And is still made right here in the good Old USA.
