How Should A Bomber Jacket Fit
Unlike any other leather jacket, a bomber should be a little loose. The waist hem should sit perfectly if you zip it up and the upper & lower chest is supposed to be loose. As long as the length of your jacket is concerned, it should never go past or above your waist (fall on top of your belt). The sleeves should rest exactly at your wrist. The cuffs should be tight because of the hem. The collar should be touching your neck rather than being too loose or too tight around it.
