Levi's buffalo leather jacket - good fit zipped, poor unzipped

Hi there1
Sorry for two posts, just had these two questions in the chamber as I joined.
So I have this vintage Levi's buffalo leather schott style jacket that fits well in the waist when zipped, but unzipped it flares to the back like the "hem" is too large....

Is this normal with diagonal zipper jackets? It feels as if without zipping it, the jacket is essentially treats itself as the size+4" of windproofing flap making it a size up.
With the zipper it's perfect, so I don't know if the leather tailor will agree to alter it.

Normal?

Excuse the basketball shorts gents - Just in the house taking a pic to show the issue

Yes sir, I should probably take an overview picture as well for the overall fit. Will do at home!
