    The pant hem length I had tailored to quarter break with those shoes specifically so I gotta assume it was all sagging in the suspenders. The tailor also slimmed from the knee down cause black lapel doesn't really have an ankle measurement option. I think the pants may now be more slim than the jacket looks. Other than fiddling with the skirting of the jacket I don't know if there are any more options.

    Unfortunately the sleeves have functioning buttons. I did have this measurement adjusted for any future orders there.

    Hi, I've been a main site reader for a few years and infrequent thread browser.

    With the good review of the Target selvedge denim and the sale last weekend, I decided to purchase the Target selvedge jacket. https://www.target.com/p/men-s-selve...66#lnk=sametab

    This is both my first trucker jacket and my first piece of selvedge denim, so it's a bit out my comfort zone and I'm not sure what to look for in fit.

    I'm 5'10", 170 lbs, normally a 40R. I bought the medium. Sleeves are definitely too long, but I'm hesitant to bring it to the tailor because they'll have to be brought up from the shoulder.

    Should I embrace it and roll the sleeves up, exchange it for a small and see if that fits, or return it and try other brands? Thanks!

    I'd try a small, but looking at the sleeves, they're made for great apes, and not homo sapiens sapiens, so even the small might be too long in the sleeve. It also looks like you have enough room in the torso to try sizing down without it being too small, so start with that. A decent tailor could cut the cuff and sew it higher up to shorten the sleeves. You'll lose the full sleeve slit (like on shirts) but you'll still have that buttonable cuff. I've had something like that done to a rain jacket and it turned out really well

    Definitely try to size down. Denim jackets should be a little snug to start. The denim, especially selvedge denim, will stretch to fit comfortably with a little wear. You can always have a tailor adjust the sleeve length but besides that it also looks big in the shoulders.
