It's Darwinian adaptation Russ, the arms are developing to reach into you incredibly deep pockets - failing still by the look of it! :whistle:

Thinking about it did you try the jacket and adjust cuffs, with your gloves on and get into your riding position, you may find the sleeves may be longish but with adjustment and gear on they may ride up a bit

I can relate to that BR I am 5' 10" with a 38" waist and have the same problem. Easier to get leathers to fit than textiles for some unknown reason.
