Leather jacket for a shorty...

  1. ...hope this is the right forum...
    [MOD] close, but no cigar. Moved :)
    I'm 5'3'' but have fairly broad shoulders. So when I was trying on leather jackets, the only one that fitted was a Large (or was it XL? can't remember *lol*) Anyways, it fitted great round the shoulders and everything BUT the arms were WAY too long...

    Has any other 'shorties' experienced the same problem with leather jackets, and what have you done?

    At the pre-learner's course we were told that if you ever going to come off a bike, you would want to be wearing leather gear...! Which is all good and well, if you can find leather gear that fits short people :(

  2. I would suggest contacting gimoto and having one made...there not really that much more expensive.
