    Hi all,

    I'm getting an Aero Leather Ace Cafe Racer and I'm discussing sleeve length with them.
    I am wondering where the ideal sleeve should end for such a leather jacket?
    exactly where the wrist meets the hand? longer? shorter?

    I'd appreciate any advice you have for me.
    Thank you :)

    It all depends on whether you are going to ride a bike with it. If so, it should be as long as a formal shirt. If not, I´d opt for a shorter sleeve.

    thanks for your help. Not I won't ride a bike with it.
    So should it just finish where the wrist meets the hand? not sure how to compare with shirt sleeve...

    When standing upright, with your arms in a natural position, it should stop just around your carpals.
