Aero B-6 fit check!

Recently got an Aero B-6! My first high-end leather jacket and I love the quality so far! I’ve worn it a few times and have gotten a lot of positive comments, but I have some reservations and wanted feedback on the fit. I got the whole jacket a little bigger to accommodate an extra layer underneath or potential weight change.

The biggest thing is I feel the sleeves are too long. I was told by Aero to add an extra inch to help with keeping the cold out but it feels like that’s way too much. The jacket as a whole also makes me feel a bit bulky despite it being light but I think that will improve as the jacket breaks in. What do you all think?

P.S. I have no clue why the photos post upside down, no matter what I do they’re like that haha.

The sleeves look too long.
Even without the extra inch, it seems like it would have been too long. Not sure why Aero advised to add more length - you could always wear some thick gloves to keep the cold out.

Rest of the jacket looks fine considering you want to layer

While I normally like longer sleeves, there is just too much of these sleeves. The jacket needs to go back to Aero. The pictures appear to be upside down in the thumbnails, but when opened they are fine.

It's beautifully shaped and fits well, except for those sleeves. I concur with Peacoat. Needs to be sent back for shortening.

Everything seems a bit big to me. I think that the sleeves of a B-6 are generally not optimal and only look good with the press stud closed. They are simply straight tubes with a rather large hand opening. My D-1 has slightly curved sleeves, which makes the sleeve look shorter for the same length.
When you close the snap, how does it look?

For me the whole jacket would be a thad on the long side - but i specifically like it a bit shorter anyway ...

sleeves are "way too long" for my taste
