    I've always thought that was interesting, too. I see a lot of beautiful jackets on this site that seem to fit perfectly, except the sleeves go halfway down the guy's hand. Ever since I was a kid, that's driven me nuts. In my opinion, a sleeve should stop exactly at the wrist.

    I called the guy that the Schott store recommended, and he told me that he'd have to shorten the sleeve zippers to make it happen. Like, literally destroy the Talon zippers. I whispered "thank you" and slowly hung up the phone.

    Yeah, definitely not! Have you called Cal-Leather?

    No, but I'll definitely look into them. Do you recommend?

    They're one of the original big names in leather jackets. Their police jacket is what we usually call a CHP style jacket today, worn by many famous riders over the years like James Dean. I think they still make police jackets to this day, but I'm not sure.

    In any case, I feel like a still-going 'heritage' leather company is more likely to get your requirements here than most! This recent thread shows their workshop, which I'd love to visit. Complete with a post about preserving a Talon zipper!

    Yeah, I was going to say that, when you have zippers on the sleeves it makes it complicated. Honestly, if I were you I wouldn't touch the jacket. My suggestion is: Just take your time and shop around for a jacket that fits you right. mostly all the leather motorcycle jackets I own, the sleeves stop right at the wrist. There's a reason for that... form follows function! Other style leathers, like car coats and Truckers can usually be a bit longer in the sleeves.
