Yes, it’s a first world problem & I know it’s always up to the personal taste, but as I’m going back and forth esp. about the body length, I was thinking that it might be helpful to ask the wisdom of the forum. ;-) I’m targeting an ELC A-2 Slender and tried the one shown in the pictures. I’ll certainly go for longer sleeves but I’m uncertain about the body length - while wearing the jacket the body length felt a tad short and hence I was thinking to add some length there (one inch). But as it’s my first A-2 style jacket I might not be used to that blouson fit and when comparing my pictures with the ones I’ve found while browsing this forum, the body length appears to be similar in most cases (leather part ends around / above modern trousers waistband). So keep it as it is? On the other side, if I would only increase the sleeve length, would’t it look odd with such long sleeves and a relatively short body? But thats actually what mother nature provide me with. ;-) Some fit pictures: This is my currently envisaged modification - the yellow post-it are representing the added length: To sum it up, my questions are: 1. Should I leave the body length as it is or shall I add one inch as indicated by the yellow post-it? 2. Is there any shrinking for the body length to be expected?
