Hiroshi recently got a vintage Lewis Leathers and customised it with an Undercover zip. He's like 50 years old? Find what leather you really love, buy the shit out of it, get the ultimate. Live it, feel it, be it.

Any places that do better discounts than AllSaints themselves? Or other good value jackets? Looking for a black double rider that doesn't break the bank.

would love it, but 50 is too big for me mate. I'm a 46/48.

if it's any help, I'm a larger end of 46, wear 48 in most rick jackets but because of the shoulders, wear a 50 in the Stooges

Could anybody recommend somewhere in London to get the sleeves shortened on a leather jacket?

Also if it's new a bit of wear will ride up the sleeves a bit with the creases in the elbows.

I used a leather specialist place on Chiltern St for leather repair which was recommended to me by India. It wasn’t sleeve shortening (which they do offer) but their work was excellent and great advise

Thanks all, will see what it's like after it has worn in a bit.

It fits fine really. Wouldn't mind an inch off the sleeves but not the end of the world if not.
