: I know this subject has been discussed before, but I couldn't find the thread in my quick glance through the Forum archives.
: How low should the sleeves on the Wested Jacket reach? I haven't had mine on at all this summer-except for trying it on when it arrived a couple of months ago. However, I just tried it on in anticipation of cool weather finally arriving.
: The sleeves seem longer than other jackets I own- they reach down to the topmost knuckle on my fingers. When my arms are hanging straight down, my thumbs almost disappear.
: Is this the common fit that others have observed?
: Thanks for the feedback.
Yep, it's the same with my jacket. And also I'm quite sure that this is
totally okay. Just look at the beginning of Raiders where Indy holds
up this map. You'll notice the extreme length of the sleeves there as
well. The sleeves seem to be sewn on very strangely. On the one hand
they hang down quite a lot but once you extend your arms over your head
they slide up pretty much.
