    Turd, your moto photos are making me crave a moto. The length is perfect IMO.

    computurd fit is pretty nice, but 1" shorter woulda look better (maybe buy a t-shirt that's 1" longer? lol)

    I dunno the length of the jacket is still bothering me. I dont feel as swagged out in it as I do in my bomber. Im not sure if the actual maker made a mistake or thought he would change the measurements to what he thought would have been better and cos im a short guy I feel as though its much more noticeable. It kinda has a shortcoat/dad feel to it Just lining my bomber up with the moto, the moto is obviously a good chunk longer even though it was supposed to be shorter in the body yet the sleeves lined up is right where the moto sleeves are just shorter than my bomber sleeves. [​IMG] [​IMG] The back kinda bothers me too where the back is just about to touch the top of my butt pockets yet the length of my bomber is is a good distance away from it even when I tug on the ribbing as far as it can go and I wear my pants low on my hips to begin with including the flap section it measures more liek : 22inch front/ 25 inch back without flap collar it measures : 20.5-21 inch from and 23 inch back

    Are you measuring the front from the top of the zipper?

    Wont the leather also shrink with time? Personally I think the length looks fine as it is.

    Maybe I am thinking of sleeves, as you wear it in it gets creases and "combs" that generally shorten the sleeve a bit.

    jacket imo looks perfect, sleeves can be wet stretched...i have done it before and added close to one inch also all my jackets have shrunk in length due to creasing, so dont worry too much
    wally what leathers do you own (name brands)? from the waywt's youve posted it seems youve got a good collection!

    Looks great in the pics. Maybe you should take a full shot or something. I'd be careful about cropping too much. My red DR has come around to feeling slightly off to me since it's so cropped (I still love it though).
