    Could you please help me with the fit for this Vanson jacket? I'm 5'9" / 137 lbs and the jacket is size 36. The jacket looks a bit loose from the back and slightly long, to my eyes. This would be for non-riding use. The jacket was ordered from Thurston Bros and they have offered to exchange to another one.

    Shall I go down to size 34 and shorten the body and sleeve length (1/2 to 1 inch)?

    Would very much appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

    you should've posted in the leather jacket thread, but yeah that's definitely too big. i think the extra volume around the back and the arms is the main problem. what you're suggesting would be an improvement, or you could ask if thurston would consider a credit towards the vanson/styleforum japanese moto MTO, which will probably be slimmer still but you might have the build for it
