    If you made this for a low poly game, then sure it's acceptable.

    Otherwise, I see a lot of stitching issues around the armpits. It looks bunched up, as if the seam lengths are not the same. And the sleeves have a strange seam down going down them. The seam needs to be tighten up here.

    I highly recommed you do a Google search on "varsity jacket womens" and you'll be able to see where you need to make adjustments. The seams of the upper sleeves where the blue and white meet are way down in the middle biceps area and should actually be higher up on the shoulder(but should not extend "over" the shoulder). The way that it currently looks in your screenshots is that a "short-sleeved jacket" had the extra-lengthed sleeves attached to it, which is not the kind of look you want for a typical varsity jacket.

    The seams that are parallel to the inner arm length look like they were stitched from the outside without being trimmed afterwards. You don't want that for this kind of jacket. What you want for this is to have the appearance that they were stitched from the inside, meaning a seam where both ends meet, but no stitching showing.

    Well its kind of hard to tell given that you have the character wearing a mostly black jacket in front of an equally black background. The sleeves themselves do look better, but the yellow portion of the sleeves need to go up higher. Do a search on Men's Jet Equity Vest by DuluthTrading Co. Now imagine fitting those yellow sleeves to it. That's generally how you want those sleeves to be situated on your jacket.

    First thing, I think your pocket flap (red circle on my edit) is reversed. I'm not sure how she'd put her left hand into a pocket that looks like it angles toward her back. :) Should be a quick fix.

    As for the jacket proportions, I think it looks perfect for a men's jacket. Just like one I still have hanging in the back of my closet some *cough*cough* years after I earned it.

    But on her, it looks like she's wearing her boyfriend's jacket. The reason is because of the width of the shoulders. In my edit, the green arrow is pointing to where the seam is between the torso and sleeve of the jacket. I would expect this to be at or just a little beyond the point of her shoulder. But the blue arrow is pointing to where her shoulder really is. Since it feels like the body of the jacket is hanging over and drooping off her shoulders, it doesn't feel like the jacket was designed for her. If you made that part narrower for the typical female form (who doesn't have as wide of shoulders as a male) I think it would look better. 

    Also, boys/men typically don't mind the big sleeves. It makes them look a little bulkier so it's "cool". But on a woman's jacket I'd expect the sleeves to scale in a bit. In fact at my H.S. the girl's jackets were completely different and didn't have the leather sleeves at all, using the same wool material as the main body and being much tighter to their arms. Only the trim was consistent from one to the other.

    Or keep it as is and sell it as "My Boyfriend's Jacket"! :)

    Or better yet, since you have an item that would work well for males now (except for the pocket thing), make a copy and work on tweaking the shape a little bit and then you can have one for each gender!

    Edit to Add: A package deal with men's and women's jackets would be an "instant buy" for me. For the nostalgia factor alone.

    Yep, I'm sure that some do. And when they do, like the real world example you shared, the jackets will appear to hang lower. I would still have looked at the real girl and my first thought would be she was wearing her boyfriend's jacket. :) Clearly nothing really wrong with the style choice overall, just expressing first impressions.

    I should also say that the heavy creases in the leather arms, etc. are done especially well. That was the first thing I really noticed was how realistic those looked. It looks exactly like a heavy wool and leather jaket, just like it should.

    In the end, really, if you're happy with the heavier look, I say go for it. It's more of a style discussion than a technical or quality one.

    You could always call it, "My Boyfriend's Jacket". I know in High School, it was exciting when my boyfriend gave me his varsity jacket to wear.
