AVI B3 Fit Questions

So I recently purchased an AVI B3 and it fits very well in length, chest, shoulders and waist but it has one very strange but major fitting issue I have not experienced before. The jacket is extremely tight in the sleeves from the elbow down. Even just trying it on for a few minutes I can feel my arms are wee bit numb. When I wear a long sleeve shirt I have told onto it or it will try pulling it up. Also the feeling of tightness is alleviated slightly if I wear just a T-shirt.

Has anyone else experienced such an issue? I've never had just the forearm of a jacket of any type be so tight, but this is my first shearling.

Here's some bad photos of the fit(not sure how'd they be helpful for just the forearms though) (Forgive the pajama pants but that's where most of my pants excluding high wasted jeans sit)

I also tried the Avi B3 and noticed it has really slim arms. It didn't bother me too much and I didn't notice any numbing on my arms. But I ended up returning the jacket.

Judging from the photo's I'd say that the fit is rather tight - at least tighter than what a B-3 historically is supposed to fit. Contrary to the B-6 and the ANJ-4 it does not have bi-swing back nor underarm gussets resp. Maybe that's the reason it feels tight, as far as I know it was modelled after an original jacket AVI got their hands into (maybe I'm wrong here).
