    Got the eastman A-1 the other week it’s a size 44 and I really like the vintage look of it. Sleeves are a little short but I don’t think I mind too much.

    The sleeves might be a little short by today’s standards, but if you look at period photos of pilots wearing the jacket, you’ll see that their jackets fit pretty much like yours does, so yours looks just fine on you.
