    I have an amazing condition 1991 618 size 40. I’m looking to trade it for a similar condition 618 possibly 118 in size 38.

    If you're looking for a late 80s / definitely post 1990s jacket and you want a size smaller than your current 618, you might be best off looking for a 36 in a 118. Since that point in time, the basic pattern on both is the same, but the shell of a 118 is always one size bigger than the shell of a 618, thus a 42 in a 118 is equivalent to a 44 in a 618, a 40 a 42, a 38 a 40, and a 36 a 38. I.e. if the object is to size down one size, exchanging a 618 in a 40 for a 118 in a 38 will give you exactly the same size jacket nowadays - though of course the leather will be different.

    :: Awesome, thanks. Do you know if the sleeve length is shorter? I’m also finding Perfecto sleeves too long for me.

    Are you sure? It's entirely possible that you're just not used to the length of rider jacket sleeves.

    If memory serves, the 118 is technically longer, but only by the sort of half inch that you'd never notice / is within the tolerance for any jacket in heavy leather anyhow. TBH, though, this is the first time I've heard of anyone finding a Schott sleeve too long: the more regular complaint is that they are on the short side.

    :: Well I’m pretty short that’s the main reason. 111BCDFE-B47F-432A-AB12-21AC2B8A3A20.jpeg

    That is normal rider length.
