That's also how I see it.No worries, we’re all conversant in metric here.
I think you could add a couple centimeters without greatly changing the look of the jacket. As you said, after all, you are tall. Some compromising might be in order: a couple extra centimeters of length, and higher waisted pants.
It suits you very well.FWIW this is the fit of mine. I think it works quite well.
Your fit is historical and looks quite good - just make sure you're wearing high-waisted pants to compliment the jacket.
TBH: There is no "spot on" fit of the Hartmann. People wore it "too long" or "too short" and it was fine. The most important part is you feeling comfortable wearing it and not giving a damn.
Your reasoning makes sense... I don't know what to do anymore !The fit in your pics opening the thread is damn near perfect and a beautiful jacket . I'm afraid I think the problem is mixing a vintage 1930's leather jacket silhouette with a 2020's jeans cut. Might as well be knights chainmail jerkin with Levi 501's. A bit like that kids game with body of firemen and legs of a nurse or whatever. Sorry for my frankness and its your jacket and you need to be comfy. But in the long term and as you get to know these pieces and their history and wear them as they should be worn, I suspect you will regret sending that gem back. There's some here that have spent years searching for a fit like that.
Leave it a day or two. You've only just received the jacket Kermit and emotions always are the highest when you first have them.Your reasoning makes sense... I don't know what to do anymore !
Not really stretch in terms of lengths. It will relax though. Depending on the leather, arms usually shorten 1/2'' or so due to creasing. The body with become far more supple and conform to you from wearing it.How does a jacket evolve over time ? Does leather tend to relax and stretch slightly ?
You are right.Leave it a day or two. You've only just received the jacket Kermit and emotions always are the highest when you first have them.
Over the next couple of days try it on with a few different trousers and things that you would most likely wear it with. See how you feel then and how the jacket feels.
If this is your first 1930s/40s style jacket remember too that they can be very different in terms of how they feel to modern cut jackets. I remember when I got my first A-2 I thought it was completely wrong because it was unlike all the modern cut jackets I had worn. It wasn't the wrong fit and in the end I loved it.
So that would be my advice, take a few deep breaths, let the initial emotions of receiving it subside, and see how you feel after a couple of days of trying it on and experimenting with other things you normally wear.
