    Hi guys.
    Here is my new jacket.
    The leather's quality is outstanding. The hardware is build like a tank. The fit is nice appart for the sleeves which seems too short. What do you think about it ?
    Cheers from France

    but everywhere else fit alright, so I guess if after you raise your arm, like receiving a phone, eating, reading newspaper, all normal activities, you don't need to every time pulling your cuff back to your wrist, then technically it is fine.

    However, if it would be me, honestly I won't be happy with that sleeve length. that is just my personal opinion

    Sleeves are a little short for my taste, but not by much. It comes down to your comfort. If it's bothering you now, it will bother you more and more the longer you own it.

    Looks like a great fit everywhere else.

    Half an inch longer would be fine I think. But as always it's a matter of personal taste and comfort...

    Congratulations on your purchase, however I sadly have to agree that the sleeves are too short, at least for my taste. It's a matter of taste and perfectly wearable as it is without committing any fashion crime, but if it already concerns you now, then you won't ever feel comfortable in it. I would recommend sending back if you can.

    I would recommend you to contact Alan at JL. They have a flight jacket model they can adjust to your body and customize as you wish and quality is top notch.

    It doesn't look bad. 99% of people won't notice the sleeve length.

    On the non military jackets the sleeves are longer and the knits accordian up into the sleeve when your arm is just down at your side. When you reach out the knit slides back out instead of sliding up your arm.

    My Eastman Aero Alexander jackets measurements shoulder to to jacket sleeve end is approx 27" my A2 Langlitz bomber is closer to 29"
