    Regarding the sleeves, I'm not sure they are actually too short, the shirt cuffs looks tad long and wide allowing them to come further down your wrist. Might be worth trying another shirt with the jacket to see the fit before making a final decision. Overall looks good

      Agreed. JCrew oxfords do this to me from time to time- easy fix is to sew a second button to the cuff, or reposition the original button, so it fits tighter to the wrist.

        Good eye. That's a JCrew chambray shirt and the sleeves do extend a bit.

          Not sure how a bomber jacket should fit. It feels slightly tight at the waist when zipped. My major issue with it is how widely open it looks when unzipped.

            Got a new Thompson Voyager here after the last sale... seems to fit pretty well to me. I decided to roll with the "classic" pant instead of the "slim" after having to have my SS Napoli pant seat let out. I have a big ass ya'll. May decide later to have them somewhat tappered through the leg.

            I haven't cut the vents yet. What do you guys think?

              doomx, I see what you're saying, but I think it fits fine for outerwear. Looks fine unzipped to me. Is it uncomfortably tight or just a little snug around your waist?

                I feel comfortable wearing it. It's a little snug in the waist but obviously the elastic deals with it fine.

                    Sanity Check

                    This is my first go at shorts with an inseam above the knee and just want to make sure this length isn't weird or trendy short. It's the JCF 9" Gramercy size 32 FWIW.

                      The length is fine (longer than I would prefer actually) but the legs do seem a bit wide at the bottom hem.

                          This could be a crease I've yet to wash out of them. That being said, my legs run a bit beefy so if that space remains I'm happy to have it. More room for air circulation.

                            I personally think shorts should be above the knee, and is not "trendy". Below the knee is just uncouth.

                              Yeah I feel like just hitting the top of the knee or a few inches above that is a pretty standard/traditional length. If you start getting up towards mid-thigh I would consider that trendy.

                                Shorts below the knee are called women's capri pants.
