Bought a used LEB distortion leather jacket which I believe its made of horse culatta leather. Right sleeve is a bit too long for my arm and I'm thinking to get it tailored. Can anyone here please help me check the rest of the fit of the jacket? Thank you!

This is my first time buying artisanal leather jacket. So the long sleeve length is part of the design?
Some of them in a way, yes. Honestly though, having owned some LEB jackets, shortening at the sleeve hem of an unlined version will be fine. You can probably do it by 1 to 1.5 inches based on your photos.

It definitely need to be shortened on the right sleeve. its clearly obvious that one is longer

If I'm not too late on this: if the sleeve length bothers you or inhibits function, shorten it. If you're just worried about how it looks... nobody is going to look at that jacket and think Hey the sleeves are off.

Looks really good by the way.
