Cafe Racer 141 - Length 25.2"
Hi have a great looking Schott 141 Cafe Racer, size 46, that I picked up last year brand new. The numbers on the tag are as follows: 6484108013, under BNDL: 024 and LOT: 46.
I think the jacket is a newer version because it has the chain and ring zip pulls and the inside snap pocket on the right side leather lining. There is no pocket on the zip-out pile liner.
The jacket measures just 25.2 inches (64 cm) in length from just below the collar.
My question is, does the length vary somewhat on these jackets? The jacket is described here and on most online shops that sell it as having a lenght of 26 inches but that is definitely not the case with my size 46 jacket. I was just curious.
I have also seen it advertized on some leather jacket online shops as measureing 25.5", which might be more accurate.
Or am I measuring it wrong and should I include the collar?
I'm just wondering if my particular jacket was inadvertantly cut too short or if this length is in fact in the regular range.
I have absolutely no gripes with the jacket itself as it's a great jacket, but I am a little perplexed about the stated length and the actual lenght of my jacket.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
