All of the sheene’s I’ve seen here have the large rear shoulders and excess leather bunching in the lower back.
I think it's ok here.

I think it's probably between an inch or two long in the body, and an inch too long in the sleeves, particularly the left. If you ride, you might keep the sleeves at that length, but if it's just a casual jacket, shorten the arms.

Chest and shoulders look good to me. For a normal person, I'd it works, but for people like us, the length should be adjusted to make it closer to perfect.

I was debating on between a seven and sheene for awhile and would have gotten the latter if I knew that I could the back to fit like yours. Unfortunately yours seemed to be the exception as most had the large shoulders.

You should be a consultant with aero to work in their pattern and CS fitment department!
Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, I must say that I had ordered this Sheene too small. It did fit perfectly from the measurements, but I think it was made by it for a smaller body length. I claim that this made the distance between the neck and armholes a tiny bit too small, which then led to the very strong folds from neck to chest. I had talked myself into it for a while, but then I often put on other jackets.
If I would buy the Sheene again (but now tend to the Board Racer), then but a size larger and without shoulder gussets. I find the gussets make the shoulders look too massive from behind.
The Sheene/CR has a 50s cut and by downsizing you can not make a 30s cut out of it. I.e. the must simply be worn a little wider. You just never stop learning ;-)
