I recently made an investment on a leather jacket that will hopefully last me a lifetime. The sleeve length is great and I like the fit around my body, but the sleeves are a little baggy on me. Does anyone know if a more contoured fit will be possible through a leather shop or tailor? I'm not too concerned with price. It's also a pretty thick motorcycle jacket (1.2mm I believe?) if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance.

Find a really good tailor who specializes in leather. I have never had leather work done except in Mexico so I have no idea where you would go, but check the leather shops in your area. They should have someone who can help. This is not an alteration for the dry cleaner.

Agree with SXMgirl. It is possible, but you want to make sure you pick someone experienced with leather. With a portfolio.
