    The product description says it's lambskin leather. It's super soft and almost paper thin.

    I wouldn't shorten them. The style is supposed to have long sleeves so your arms aren't exposed when they're extended (e.g. when riding). It shouldn't fit like a suit jacket... would look off if it did.

    3 better options:
    - Wear gloves to prop the sleeves up,
    - move the snap so the wrists are tighter,
    - do curls so the girth of your arms holds the sleeves up (layers work, too)

    though 3 inches is alot...

    Normally I would agree with you on this, but this is nearly certainly a fashion jacket, and is only a motorcycle jacket in the same way as my black herringbone M65 is useful for infantry combat.

    I would say to get it adjusted to the base of your thumb, but not any shorter than that, and to get it shortened from the shoulder.

    I tried on the jacket again. Lo and behold the sleeve ends exactly at the base of my thumb. So it's the perfect fit. I thought the sleeve is meant to end at the wrist bone or maybe half an inch longer but no more.

    Thanks guys! [​IMG]

    The perfect fit is where you want it to end.
    Ignore that bollocks about about doing weights / wearing gloves etc

    Certain elements of style are not subjective. 9 times out of 10, we look better wearing pieces as they were intended to be worn.

    ...and we should all be doing more weights

    Some dudes really overdo it with the weights. It's hard to look good in clothes if you have bulging muscles.

    Bulging muscles and an "American Fighter" tee says "I'm a gigantic ass."

    There's no real reason to keep overly long sleeves if he doesn't intend to ride a bike.

    You can always balance out overly bulky arms with even bulkier gloves.

    I find those chicks to be generally unbearable.
