    I'm about 5'3, 130 lbs, and would like to celebrate graduating college by getting a good leather jacket. The problem is that, unlike suit jackets, leather jackets almost never come in short sizes, and those are still usually too long. A coat designed to sit at my waist sits at my crotch. Is there a company that makes good bespoke leather jackets (that aren't insane price wise)? If not, do you know of anyone with extra short sizes?

    Best bet is made to measure. Check out temple of jawnz.

    Perhaps a style that has a short waist such as a cafe racer . Lot's of cool vintage jackets all the time on ebay. Schott , Vanson , Belstaff all make classics.
