Hey Jules
Welcome to the forum !
First impression of the jacket looks pretty good , although it’s tough to tell from that one photo. You might want to zip it up and take a couple of shots from different angles for a better result . Sleeves look maybe a touch long, but really can’t be sure seeing just the one arm.
Congrats on your first A2 , I’m sure it won’t be your last. What size is it?
Cheers

I’ll take some better photos tonight. It’s a 44 but I’m probably closer to a 42.

Burt took the words out of my mouth. Ideally the knits wouldn’t bunch up like they do on the sleeves, but for a second-hand purchase that is not a bad fit. Looks like a great jacket. As you wear the jacket though, the arm length will shrink a little bit, and the knits will relax, meaning that they’ll fall a bit further down on your wrist. So the sleeves will get better with time.

Great point about the arms fellas! Do you guys find that the length changes at all with time, I find a bit of ballooning in the back but nothing too bad.
