Agree with hd, pretty short
Somehow a perfect fit irks me while a slightly imperfect like this does not. I really like the fit of this.
Denim jackets cure me of sleeve length anxienty, for riding style jacket with zip cuff i still like longer sleeve with zip fully seal, for other style i actually now liking shorter sleeve so wrist accessories and watch or even long sleeve shirt cuff shows a bit.
Too short for me but WOW what a skin! The grainiest McCoy I’ve seen
The sleeves do border on the short side, but the jacket is spectacular enough to overshadow the missing length. You can still compensate by wearing long sleeves under the jacket and letting them cover your wrists. I tend to feel self-conscious when this happens to me, and generally, the most insignificant detail can spoil the pleasure. But in the end, it all comes down to deciding how serious the problem is, and wether the jacket is wearable or not. In this case, i think your jacket looks great. If you're comfortable with it, everything's fine.
Way too short, people will notice that too.
I don't want any shorter than this
Get ready for pages of "too short"...
To me they fit fine, yes they could be 0.5 to 1" longer and it would be a little better, but they aren't short enough that it looks wrong.
I would 100% keep that jacket and wear it if it fit me that way.
See, to me, that body looks way too short - and I would certainly notice it, if no one else did.
This is size 36, and I am 42, that's the jacket I bought for my father.
So do you want people to convince you that the sleeves are fine? If it's fine with you why you care other's opinion?
I think that slightly on the short side is a better look than slightly on the too long side when it comes to sleeves.
Well, first off, I'm not asking for anyone to convince me of anything - I was just asking for some other thoughts - at the end of the day my own opinion is the only one that matters. Why do I care? Well, I dont really care, but isnt checking out and showing off your clothes and seeing what others think that the whole point of this thread, if not forum? If you want an a argument, sorry, I'm not biting. @Mich486 - Thanks for the input, I also think too long sleeves look stupid, like a child wearing a grown-ups coat
Sleeve and body length was something that used to really bother me (as a result I think I spec'd nearly every Aero order too long in the body). There was a time when the body and sleeve length mattered so much to me that I lost interest in many a fine jacket. I've relaxed my opinions on those things a bit and just go with how the jacket feels overall now. Some people have a very rigid set of requirements and some don't.
Lost worlds raider ? Great jackets,I have one in my collection if anyone fancies a perfect size 42
Please send me a message, sir.
The length looks fine to me but I like my sleeves a bit shorter. Long sleeves irritate me as they're always getting in the way.

The shade of that mouton is fantastic!
I echo the comments of they look fine as is and too long is worse. They are a hair short but thats a common thing for me as well. I'd suspect a lot of peiple with longer arms and trim build. The rest of the world would never know and you may not have even thought about it twice yourself before tfl. If you don't ride and the jacket is for casual it really doesn't matter much anyhow. Its not like they are sid vicous short or anything.
Enjoy the jacket, its badass!
Beautiful jacket and I think the sleeves are fine. I have one or two jackets like that and to be honest slightly short sleeves are much less troubling to me than a slightly short back length.
Once your hands are on the steering wheel the sleeves will be halfway up your forearm. Which is ok if that sort of thing doesn't bother you, I know a lot of work jackets are made that way to keep your sleeves out of the way especially mechanic's jackets.
