I think a lot of clothing designers are Italian and Italians have long arms. I have the same problem because I have short arms (and long pockets).

I have long arms and generally have to buy biking jackets that are massive around the chest, just to get the sleeves right - short sleeves and draughty aren't good :(

What make have you bought that are too long?

I know I came in with a joke , but their web shop has some pretty cool leather jackets (probably not up for biking but cheap for decent street wear. (thumbs) )

I have a similar problem with motorcycle trousers. I know Im overweight but if I get the waist to fit the legs are so long the knee armour is below my knees. Im about 6ft tall but only have a 28in inside leg and weigh about 17 stone

Being a knuckle dragger I find some arms too short, especially when reaching forward. Oook.
