    you should size down. the shorter sleeves and body length will still look good on you.

    Woulda medium(tall) ensure my doubts in the jacket being too short?
    Basically i am looking for a slimmer fit but do to the inside padding i understand the jacket will be poofy no matter what i just dont want it to look too poofy

    I think the jacket in your photos looks good on you. A little poofy and long in the sleeves but not too bad. Body length is fine.
    Going down to medium should give you a perfect fit.

    It's a totally different animal and customizable lengths. You can also order it in leather.

    Does the leather cost more?

    Ok, so I just bought the Alpha MA-1 Reissued from Amazon and here's how it fit me.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm tall and slim: 6'4 and around 195 right now. Alpha recommend going up a size and I did so. I normally wear L in most things but this is XL and seems to be the right fit for me. Sleeves and body are long enough. The jacket isn't too "puffy" (as is the case with the regular MA-1 on me).

    This jacket has apparently been discontinued. Here's a link to Alpha's page for this:
