Hello – longtime lurker here. This forum has been an awesome resource for learning about leather jackets and has been a great help to me as I try to get my first one. I’m interested in a lightweight double rider (i.e., perfecto style) that’s toned down a bit -- no belts or epaulets. Based on the general advice from several different threads here, I got an easily returnable “off-the-rack” jacket to use as a fit jacket. It’s a Schott Perfecto, specifically the Raven P213: https://www.schottnyc.com/products/raven-leather-jacket.htm I’m attaching some fit pics – I’d love some feedback, as I am not quite sure what I should realistically expect from a leather jacket generally and this style in particular. Here are my stats (taken by a tailor) and the jacket’s stats (taken by me). Me: chest: 40in, waist: 31in, sleeve: 31in (from center of neck), shoulder circumference: 47in (not sure how useful this measurement is), height: 5 ft 9 in, pants inseam: 29in Jacket: chest: 41in (20.5in pit-to-pit), hem: 38in (19in end-to-end), sleeve length: 25in, shoulder width: 17.5in, length: 25.5in. I think the measurements help confirm what is in the fit pics. The sleeves are too long by a couple of inches, and the jacket may be a bit too long in length; however I am more concerned about the waist. It may be hard to tell from the pics (maybe it’s evident from the side profile) but there is some slack at the waist/hem – about 4 inches worth or more. Is it unrealistic to expect more of a “V” shape for this type of jacket? Other similar jackets, such as the Vanson Daredevil and the Aero STF bootlegger, appear to have a similar chest/hem drop (in stock sizes). Should I consider altering a stock size, or perhaps getting a custom fit jacket? I could also possibly size down, but I worry about the shoulders/chest being too tight. One last thing – I didn’t expect the jacket to “flare” out when open/unzipped as the lapels collapse towards each other and push out the hem, but I presume I shouldn’t expect lightweight leather hold its curve/shape. Thanks in advance!!
