It's risky, but perhaps a place like Johnson Leathers could take up the sleeves? It's not a huge deal though, fit still looks great.

I'll just say it plainly (no Scots involved) - get the sleeves shortened … on both your FW leathers

That's what tailors are for. The Union Special 43200 enjoyed a renaissance because jeans are made too long (and unless you're Hollows build then I'll hear no argument on that) - this is the same thing

However if you're happy then consign my pontification to the garbage where it belongs



Editing this to add I’m pretty sure Snake got the sleeves of his Little Wing (an outrageously beautiful jacket) shortened by a colleague of Hoosier and was very happy with the job. It might be recorded here on this thread somewhere

Iron Horse and Duke- I definitely will be keeping this in mind. I know the sleeves do need to be shortened. My only issue is I do not want to risk someone doing a less than stellar job of it. 

If anyone does know of a place that is truly trustworthy here, please let me know.

Duke- you are not wrong and your words never go in my bin. I will definitely keep this in mine and try to inquire further into a way to fix the sleeves.

However, I definitely am still happy overall.

Thanks Jake

We all set out on our own path - that’s a great thing. Enjoy your jacket in whichever way you choose.

FWIW I think the sleeves look great cuffed. That is not a jacket I would normally look at but it looks smashing on you.
Would so love a FW leather. Unfortunately the cost is prohibitive. Not the cost of the jacket but the fact that our wonderful UK customs allow you about £30 before they start hitting you with tax and duties. I understand it is thousands of $$$ before that in the U.S. ?
