    Welcome Ben!

    I think the jacket is too big I'm afraid. Certainly, if it were mine I would be sizing down at least one size.

    I think it's too long in the body, the sleeves are too long, the shoulders are too wide. It's just (much) too big.

    In my opinion.

    Edit to add:

    Checking the Boda Skins website, the model photo shows much more how I would expect this style of jacket to be fitting. Slim and trim:

    Thanks for the welcoming ☺
    I may take other photos, because i took this on a weird angle, the lengh actually stop at my belt, so sizing down may be dangerous..but agree with the sleeves and shoulders..
    Im atm muscling up, so maybe after a bit it will be better, i hope

    May be sizing down could have been perfect, but i may not be able to muscle up more..
    Im not trying to convince you of my choice, just to explain mine

    You don't need to explain your choice to anybody! As long as you feel good wearing it, your jacket should fit however you want it to fit.

    But, you did ask...

    It looks like a great jacket for layering, until you bulk up. It has been a while, but it does get cold in France, no?

    Just my opinion, which no one has to share ;)
    Even if you add so much muscle to fill out the jacket (realistic?), it will still be too long.
    But maybe the length is intended in the model and if you like it that way, it's all fine anyway.
    I think a number smaller works also with muscles.
