Leather biker jackets

So I finally caved and ordered myself a much coveted biker jacket from All Saints, a Bales I think. Checked online and model was definitely 5’9” so jacket will fit - or so I thought.

Not a chance, at 5’11” it barely reached the end of my rib cage. It was too short on the sleeves and far too short on the body. Looked bloody ridiculous like I had on my kids coat.

So does anybody know anywhere I can get get a plain leather biker style jacket from that will fit a tall person.

Out of curiosity, what size did you get your Bales in? I bought a 12 and really need a 14, but they're out of stock everywhere! Customer services tells me there's only one size 14 in stock in the whole country - in Belfast!

I think MuuBaa is a good brand for tall ladies! Or Topshop tall?

I tried on the Bales in Selfridges as they're quite hyped on here. I couldn't see what all the fuss was about. I've 3 leathers from Boda Skins. Since I bought mine, I am aware that they've bought out a tall range.
They are visible on the above link.

I'm 5'8 with long arms, my leather jacket is muubaa.
I picked one with the sleeves looking long on the model.
I got mine with 70% off in the sale I think?

I’m your height most of mine are whistles. Got some muubaa ones too and they are shorter in the body.
