Thanks for your input. I initially thought the sleeves were a little long too, but I emailed Himel about it and they said that the sleeves will naturally shorten about an inch due to tunneling/creasing. They did say that they can shorten the sleeves if I still wanted to, but cautioned that doing so might make the sleeves shorter than I want due to the tunneling.Fit is fine. If I were mine, the sleeves would be an inch shorter, a bit too long for me, particularly unzipped. Otherwise I really have no bone to pick. The hem flares out when unzipped ,but that is the nature of the beast.
If you want to speed up that process and see if it is true, you can spray the sleeves with water from a spray bottle, so that they are wet, but not soaked through. Then wear the jacket, bend and flex your arms naturally, until the sleeves are dry. Some loungers got unbelievably good-looking, permanent creases that way. Same creases will also develop with dry leather, but will take a bit longer.Thanks for your input.

To me a Halfbelt, particularly one of this style, should be more fitted. This jacket looks one size too large and too long in both the body and sleeve length.
On another note, the chest pocket appears to high in the shoulder, it should be at least 1” lower. I hate to bust on the jacket but for the price paid, a better outcome should be expected.
If you look at the stock photo on the Himel site, the placement of the chest pocket is consistent with OP's jacket. I do agree that it is higher up than I care for on this style of jacket.^^ wow, I didn’t notice at first glance, but yeah that chest pocket is definitely up there.
Good call. I think high chest pockets tend to elongate the body and contribute to confusing proportions. Lowering it or setting it at an angle would make a world of difference.
Tbh none of the pockets in this image look right to me….chest pocket looks really odd with that v high placement and the handwarmers look misaligned, as Marc says. Maybe just a poor photo and its not so bad in real life, but going on what I see here this looks poorly put together - especially at the price….the whole impression is that it all looks a bit “off” as a piece.
