    Also tempted by this one, but what do you guys think of the unlined front? Given the oil cloth fabric, Im thinking wax residue might bleed through to whatever shirt you're wearing.

    Yeah the unlined front struck me as odd?

    Great price for new though.

    I just have never really seen the aesthetic appeal of waxed canvas (it always looks like fuzz gets stuck to it?). And I don’t ride so the practical appeal isn’t there either.

    I had it in my watchlist but dumped it when I started bidding on something else...that thankfully hasn’t been posted in this thread!

    This is a beauty, rare brown fades, I thought 149 was BIN, would not last if that was the case, could still be a bargain. Love those mad brown fadez!

    PS - Seller also has some boots to go with the jacket, pretty flashy though, lol. Would love to see someone rock them. :)

    That red/white collarless bates looks good, if the color was a little more tamed I'd be on that

    anybody hear of this Schott B3? Looks like a collab maybe, but if I'm reading everything right, looks like it's made from cow leather instead of the usual sheep leather. Every time I get really close to buying a used b-3, I'm kind of turned off by how they age. There's a lot of models made in the early 2000s for sale (usually in the $300-700 range). Maybe it's just me, but the texture just seems weird once the top coat wears off. TBH though, I've never seen one in person, so it's only through photos. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Anyway, this caught my eye being cow leather, it should age nicely.

    edit: nevermind, just noticed, it's the trim leather that's cow. Main leather is sheep. Anyway, still curious about how these sheep skin jackets age

    I have one of these, it was my first ever "leather jacket"...
    They fit like most things Schott, short and wide for the size, don't expect a good fit if you are V shaped, if you are barrel shaped this is for you.
    I bought mine in 2000 something and i ended up sizing up to a 48 instead of 42 to get the length i needed, it was huge! A few years later i had the body tapred down so it would fit better.

    Mine has always had a suede finish, even when it was new.

    I would say get one if you can get it cheap, but they are not really worth spending big bucks on, especially the new one with the fluffy sheep. The older curly ones are i think thicker.

    For the money, my recently bought Vanson B-3 is a much nicer jacket and although it is a bit rarer and harder to find and a bit more expensive (got mine for $570 in mint condition) i would recommend it above the Schott one.

    Couple pics of my Schott:
