I purchased this as an all around jacket that would handle everything from working outside,to dog walks, to pints at the pub. I am 6'3"240lbs with long arms and broad shoulders. I think those who complained about the sleeve length failed to read previous reviews, or did not realize this is a work first jacket, not a fashion first piece. The long sleeves are the real deal you appreciate the FIRST time you reach up for something and the cuffs are not almost to your elbows. The gusseted back helps give freedom of movement with no binding. The extra length in the back is nice as well when you are bending and lifing. The fleece lining is very nice and water beads up nicely on the omnishield coated duck canvas. On my frame, the XXL is a bit big with just a t-shirt, but perfect with a sweater or sweatshirt. If you are looking for more of a fitted look, go down one size. If you are very thin and looking for a tight to the body look, this jacket is not for you. Finally someone designed a better Carhartt Detroit jacket. My wife loves the jacket and I may order an XL so I can have a fitted jacket for going out. I would buy this coat again and again.
