Fit looks great. I wouldn’t bother doing anything with the waist belts. They aren’t needed and when out I. That position, they don’t do much anyway.
5” is way too narrow. 5.5” should be ideal.That is too wide. Next time I suggest 5”. I requested 5.25” for mine and find that’s a bit too wide. For my next jacket I will request 5” cuffs (closed). I have fairly large hands as well.
Hmm. I have large hands and I can fit my hand through 5.25” no problem. I think aesthetically 5” looks best.

I think visually the super thick hides just stay round, don’t become ovals and that’s why the look a bit bell like.Hmm. I have large hands and I can fit my hand through 5.25” no problem.
