    Schott 689H size 44 missing buckles asking 200

    Hey Willy, For me it's loose. But I think this model is sized a bit for bigger guys anyway. It's hard to tell, it's about two sizes big for me in general...

    Schott 689H size 44 missing buckles asking 200

    This is a beautiful horse hide Schott jacket, 689H size 44. I picked up this jacket a while ago and it just doesn't fit. I think I'm probably a 40 in Schott sizes, despite what their online guide told me.... It's in great shape except for some reason the previous owner cut the buckles off the...

    Schott 689H too big. How bad is it? suggestions?

    Ok, good to know. So that would be like a 689 42. You know how that would compare to an Aero Sheene 40 or 42?

    Yep, I checked the website of the store I was at and that's the only cafe racer Schott they have.

    OK, I checked the website. It was the 141.

    Schott 689H too big. How bad is it? suggestions?

    So today I had a very brief chance to try on a Schott Cafe Racer in 40, not sure what model exactly. That seemed a much better fit. I didn't have time, but I wonder if the 38 might have even fit... So I was way off thinking I'd fit a 44. But, at least I barely spent any money on it. My plan at...

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I'm going to fix it and sell it. And in the meantime I'm shopping for another jacket. Can anyone recommend a similar style jacket with a much slimmer profile?

    Ah you suggest finding a moto shop to resize it? That's a good tip i was just looking around for regular tailors that did leather.

    Schott 689H too big. How bad is it? suggestions?

    Yeah very odd. Wonder what he was thinking to cut them off. I wonder if this cut just isn't really for my body type then. I have a feeling by the time the waist would be right, ie 2 sizes down or so, it'd start to be tight on my shoulders. I guess I should just see if I kind find a Schott store...

    One thing about that option is I'd also feel better about selling it if I could replace the adjusters with official Schott ones. And maybe with the adjusters it's livable and I'm still only in around 250 euros for a beautiful coat. I have some pretty puffy sweaters so maybe I can just keep it...

    I just picked up a beautiful Schott 689H for 120 euros. Problem is it's one size too big. At least. Shoulders feel almost right but it's quite a bit too big everywhere else, which makes it comfortable to wear actually. By the way, this is the size the Schott website suggests when I put my info...

    For Trade, Schott 689 Horsehair size 44 for 42

    Just picked up a beautiful Schott jacket which was, seemingly, very lightly used by the previous owner. They did, for whatever reason, cut off the two small belts for the back, so it's not 100% original. You wouldn't notice if you didn't know they should be there. It's slightly too big for me so...
