Customer photo of the Aero Ladies Alpine Ski Jacket--Battered Brown Steerhide with an alpaca wool lining and a shearling collar. This stylish jacket is what was worn on the slopes back in the 1930s!
We don't really have a "stock length" for any jacket, just a range that works for each size in each style. The back of a size 38 can range between 23 and 25.5, just depending on how tall the person is, the length of their torso, and where they want the jacket to fall in relation to the back pockets of their pants. This back length is set during the custom fitting process. The Plainsman has a slimmer fit design than the 1930s Half Belt...it's more like the Premier 30s...
It's definitely possible, but there is a limit since we'd want to keep the proportions right with the half belt feature of the jacket. Body length is a custom detail that we assess in the custom fitting process, so we'd be able to figure what would look best for your fit!
Both the Vanson Daredevil (rider) and the moto version are jackets that sit right in between fashion and function--due to the high quality leather, these jackets can be used for riding, but they have cut and styling that we typically categorize as fashion.
