Hi!

For columnar/straight body shape, which one is better? A longer, or a shorter biker jacket?

I'm choosing between two sizes.

Right size: Longer, can zip up, more masculine fit.

Size smaller: I like the shorter length, snug, can't zip up but I don't think I will be zipping up anyway.

What do you think?

I think this kind of jacket is better with a shorter cut, so the smaller size looks good. When you have a columnar body shape, the important is to create an illusion of a real waist with "belted" jackets.

I prefer the look of the first one... It looks more relaxed, while the second one looks too small in the upper arm area. The first looks cooler, and the second more feminine. I would imagine that with jacket lengths, your vertical proportions are more important... Like, are your legs long, your torso short, or the opposite, or are you long in the rise etc. The length that makes you look the most balanced is ideal (in theory). I have a long rise, and so I avoid shorter jackets, because it emphasizes it.

eizhowa - I'm short waisted, long legs. Yeah the smaller size is tight in the arms. Just thought leathers stretch? Also in the middle of a weight loss program. I think I don't have a long rise - googled. Shorter tops and low-waist jeans and tucked pants look better on me than otherwise. But I also now want a longer jacket because yeah, there's something androgynously cool about it.

Emmanuelle - thanks, leaning toward the shorter one. For now. But I also am starting to want another in a longer length!
