Perfecto fit ?

Bonjour, j'ai acheté ce 618 en taille 40, mais je pense qu'il est trop petit ... Qu'en pensez-vous?

This jacket is too short on you, the jacket should end below the belt at the top of your hip area. The sleeves also appear to be too short for a motorcycle riding jacket. If this is the vintage older version 618, then the back length may only be 24", newer production of the 618 is 25", while our style #118 in the Naked Cowhide leather is 26". If ypu are over 6' tall you may need a long size in a jacket style #118L, which would provide a 2" longer back length and 1" longer sleeve length.

If you do not ride and just want the fashion look of a motorcycle jacket then the jacket is OK, especially when worn unzipped. The same goes for the sleeves as you do not need a longer sleeve for riding, as your arms are not extended like when riding causing the sleeve to ride up and become shorter.

I do not motorcycle but I still feel that it is too short for everyday use .. I should find a new 618 and it should be my size ..

Denise m'a envoyé le tableau des tailles du modèle 618 et du 38 au 40. Les longueurs sont différentes de 1 pouce .. Parce que mon 618 taille 40 est trop court mais il ne me remplace pas la poitrine correctement. Je me suis dit que j'aurais besoin de la taille 38, mais dans le tableau des tailles, le 38 une longueur de 24 'et non de 25' comme il me faudrait. Donc je ne trouve pas un 618 ajusté!

Finding a newer 618 will add a 1" back length, but the sleeves would still be the short length. I think you are a tall person and need a "long" size in a jacket such as the 118L. How tall are you?

 By wearing it again, it really ends up flush with my belt .. I think it suits me like on this "manequin"

j'ai l'impression qu'il est un peu plus court sur toi que sur le manequin... j'ai aussi le même problème sur un Perf vintage tout début 80's (un 618)

On the picture where it is closed, my pants were a little low. In fact just fits my belt, so yes, it is missing 1 'but not worse ..

Catalog models who wear the clothing are usually slim and tall as this is the norm for models. Because of their body structure jackets can look short on them too. On the above photo this jacket still appears short for a person who rides a motorcycle. A person riding would need a longer jacket to prevent wind from riding up your back, for a fashion look the length does not matter as much.
