I’ve got that same jacket and the sleeves are just as long on me, I think it’s just the cut. I’d like to have them shortened but don’t want to go through the trouble.

I'm not against this line of thought. This is primarily one of the reasons why I have so many low heel boots in my wardrobe. As long as people make informed decisions on sleeve length, then whatever length they choose can never be "wrong". The sleeve length that hits right at the wrist is the most "conservative" and least "offensive". I do believe that the taller you are, the more freedom you have with playing with oversized silhouettes without it visually compromising how tall you look.You're very limited with cropped sleeves as to what you can wear with it and everyone outside of the "Hedi-sphere" will think the jacket is a few sizes too small.
You make a good point. Oversized looks don't seem out of place for me, but shorter and often normal lengths make it seen like I've just opted for the wrong size.I'm not against this line of thought.

I think the sleeve lengths are perfect for a winter jacket, look to be about the same as my shearling denim. Keeps your wrists from getting cold when it's windy outside and not so long that it looks sloppy.Picked up the dark denim shearling jacket, really love it. I think I need to bring the sleeves up a couple cm's, or am I over thinking it? So much depends on how I hold my arms; if I reach up my wrist is fully exposed but with arms hanging down it's long to me. Most of my other outerwear has a 61cm length, this is 63 cm for reference. Sorry for the pic overload, trying to capture the lengths.

Agree that oversized is often a nice look for girls. I think it can also be a good look for guys, especially in streetwear (yea I know most of you probably aren't into that). Kind of gives a relaxed but still put together vibe.I'm not opposed to a more oversized fit either, within reason. It similarly projects an effortless cool feeling, but it would also be slightly more sloppy than put together. One limiting factor to pull this off I feel is height. The shorter you are the more consideration you have of avoiding the look of being swallowed by your clothes. It emphasizes the lack of height, which looks adorable on girls, but not so much on guys, but this might be my toxic masculinity leaking out. Also, ironically, it makes people who have a built frame look longer and leaner. It takes away some of the spotlight on their muscles
Harry's look reminds of me this female model who walked for men's fw13:

The oversized sleeves look absolutely adorable on her.
Thanks for your input brother. Unfortunately I have tried neither the duckies or santiags, but I do have the Lukas which I had to size up in.my french boots kinda fit like duckies or Sanitags. They don't fit as big as wyatts jodphurs or chelseas but not as tight as lucas
This logic on first glance makes sense, but thinking about it more, wouldn't worrying about your hands getting cold when it is windy outside be more important in the first place? That little extra fabric of a longer sleeve doesn't make that much of a difference when your fingers start to hurt from the cold. When it does get so cold that even exposing a bit of skin is intolerable, perhaps it is worth layering something underneath or wearing a different jacket/coat all together?Keeps your wrists from getting cold when it's windy outside and not so long that it looks sloppy.
To me, I can imagine a narrative where she's so in love with her boyfriend that she likes wearing his clothes. She likes her bf's style so much she wants to match as a couple. I'm biased since not a lot of girls like wearing fw13 men's looks.As an aside, don't know if I would use the word adorable for that girls outfit...honestly could have mistaken her for a guy but I guess that was the point of dressing her for the mens runway.
