    The chest feels fine. The sleeves sit about right when standing but, just say on the motorbike (arms outstretched), they come right back about 2 1/2 up my arm. The back fits in about the right spot but the front is about an inch above where my belt normally sits.

    Andrew Putnam,Aero Highwayman is a short model. If your chest feels good, then you need to add sleeves and a length

    I'm not quite sure of the fit still. Just inexperience I guess.
    Seems to fit at the back a bit better than front?

    Thanks! Yeah I thought so!
    I'll probably put it up for sale or swap in classifieds then.

    Some like em short. That to me is way too short. I would want two inches on the sleeves and front. I think a HWM may be a good jacket for your build. I'm too thin to pull it off as it is a square chunky pattern that would look odd on me unless I specced the hell out of it.

    Back length looks good imo. It’s designed to be a short jacket. The front rides up too much (no offense meant, but it looks like your belly might be causing that) and I’d like those sleeves to be two inches longer as well.

    No offense taken! No I appreciate the help Yeah belly maybe to a degree but If I suck my guts in it's pretty much the same thing.

    Pictures can not tell the whole tale of course, you would know best. But yeah, I’d sell that on and try to find something longer.

    Yeah.. I'd want it to reach belt at least.. my HWM wears shorter in the front too while being almost too long in the back for my taste and I don't have much belly, think it's a pattern thing.

    Well thanlks for the support brother! haha. I do have a little bit of a belly which I'm working on. But I have a fairly curved back which can make it look bigger than it actually is in pictures! I promise!!!

    Yeah I saw this one. I asked Holly at Aero about it and she thought it might be a little too small in chest and shoulders for me. Nice though. I do have a jacket with 27" sleeves and a 27" P2P. The sleeves are a little long. I think I need about 26". The BF109 I have has 25.5" sleeves and they're about perfect actually.
    Yeah the Premier Highwayman looks good!
