You hit the nail on the head, for me at least. I know Gustin said the extra length is to accommodate for the fabric and any riding up. That aside the measurements for the length of the jacket is also on the short side. It's roughly 2 inches shorter than the measurements on my Levi's trucker; also a short jacket. *sigh*
Looks like I'll have to pass until some backers can give some insights on fit. Sad because the fabric choice was spot on!
Additionally, I also thought I'd come home to find several backed campaigns of the jacket. Sorry Gustin, gonna have to take a pass on this for now.
FWIW, I just measured my Levi's X Filson tin cloth trucker in XL
Compared to the Gustin measurements for XL, the Filson is about a 47" p2p versus 48.5; same center back arm length 36 7/8, and about 26.5 bottom of collar length versus 26..
The arms on the Filson are kind of long pulled down straight, but with the tendency of the tin cloth to fold and ride up, they're okay.
I'd be all over the Gustin if I didn't already have the Filson.
