Denim Jacket with Ample Armholes

Does anyone know of a denim jacket with functionally sized armholes? I tried a type 3 Levi’s trucker the other day. My arms could barely squeeze into the armholes. I have a 40 inch chest and lift weights. I tried a size medium. I was eyeballing and old Lee’s rider jacket but I’m afraid the armholes would be too narrow.

Size up on Levi’s or look for a medium with stretch. The arms and back are high and tight on the modern cut.

If you’re open to spending more, most Japanese selvedge type 3’s are cut to a vintage style and have lower under arms.
