On the short side in relation to that specific pair of pants. Higher rise pants would work a bit better.
In terms of sleeve width - nothing that enough lifting will not solve :D
Otherwise pretty decent.

Looks good.

Does it have quilted liner? That's my best guess what the Q stands for. Regular ones come with that zip out fleece liner, only the HH one comes with the quilt liner. Japan retailers are known to make small customization like lining and zip changes to differentiate their Schott jackets from the ones being sold in the US as the retail price is higher in Japan than US.

yes he has the quilted liner. So this model is the horse hide? the leather is very thick, how can make the leather more soft? . Maybe it has the sleeves a little bit large in the bicipt, but is good.

It's their heavyweight steerhide. This must be made during the heavyweight leather wars in Japan. Schott was sending them jackets made with 1.6mm heavy weight steerhide.

Give it some conditioning and lots of wear, you'll get use to the thicker leather.

There are even thicker ones from the smaller shops like Langlitz and Johnson if thick leather is your thing, look for them on the used market, made around early 2010s I think.

Aye, the 2mm one is actually a Johnson jacket. A few of these made their way to Japan years ango under different brands like Westride and I think also Yah Ta Hey and even a few non motorcycle fashion brands in Japan. Deals are good because no one knows what they are when they show up on the used market.

Craftmanship is top of the line. My friend has several Westride jackets. they are nice.

It’s steerhide for sure. If horsehide there would be a horsehide label anD also the serial number will have H or HH after the numbers (Inside pocket small white tag)

Heavyweight steerhide is good stuff, just wear and enjoy.

Loops like you nailed the size. I find with Schott stuff that the most important measurement is at the waist. If that works, the rest of the thing seems to fall into place.

i think the sleeve is just flat thus appear big from the jacket not being worn enough, once you wear it often it will rest better and appear rounder, if you are just into leather jacket then racer model is usually your style choice and looks like the most versatile and stylish jacket to the eyes, but don't buy many pieces, because your taste might move from it into crosszip or other style that you swear you won't touch at the time you start your leather jacket journey.

It's a good fit (before and now). Don't over think it. You've got an athletic build to rock this pattern. Just enjoy. It's hard to find a good condition 641 from Japan. They're usually very heavily used with the grey coming through already. Yours looks like new still very black.
