    That is an excellent fit! Length looks spot on in my opinion. Very nice jacket.

    Everything is as it should, shoulders, sleeve, body length, volume. Wear and have fun without really thinking

    Ladies & Gentleman,
    many thanks to all of you!
    Now I've got the idea behind the authentic look of a vintage style leather jacket!
    Best regards, Roman

    Very nice indeed. You could even have gotten away with a little shorter (if memory serves, Thurston's stock Aero halfbelts are all specced to be an inch longer than the Aero standard), but it by no means looks either too long or short, well within the range.

    Anywhere from a 24" to a 25.5" would be an appropriate length for you in this jacket, so you are indeed within the proper range. Looks great on you!

    I'm tempted to eventually get something similar in a natty CXL, but I recently opted for an August in battered tan horsehide which is being completed now.

    I still think it's hard to beat an Aero 1930's half-belt. There are more expensive half-belts but they don't always work as well as these. Weather is cooling down here - will soon be able to wear mine.

    The opposite is the case here, the weather is finally beginning to shift in the right direction and I can look at pulling out the half-belt and lighter jackets. *punches air* I'm so sick of this endless, wet winter.

    I don't mind the Winter, but I get very angry indeed when Winter shifts straight to hot, nasty Summer with no time for leather in between. Only thinb I hate about London: the hot climate!
