I've had 2 leather jackets before and dont quite recall if I had same problem since I change them rarely :)..
Here's the problem I got me ICON daytona hero jacket .. I know motorcycle jackets are short and should be not much loose..
Now this Jacket covers my belt in lenght Is this about right ?
I know leather jackets have tendancy to loosen after a while.
can someone tell me If this is correct I don't wanna get stuck with wrong size jacket.. this is first armored jacket i ever had :)

ideally it should cover your belt when you're on the bike in a semi-tuck. that's why they are longer in the back. if it's above your belt at all, it's too short. NOTHING worse than when your jacket let's the wind down your crack.

What fastdiablo said. The jacket is supposed to fit correctly when you're *ON* the bike. Do you ride with your hands raised? :2bitchsla ;)

I just got a brand new Joe Rocket Blaster leather jacket. It comes
down with my belt line with the back being longer. Mine is a size
40 since I'm about 160 and 5'10". It's a snug fit, but not super
tight on me. I wore it for the first time on a ride yesterday and I
could feel it starting to loosen up some. When riding and my hands on the clip-on's the sleeves are just right. I have a very
flat belly, so it zips up just fine. If I had any gut then I'd have a
problem getting it zipped. Just give yours time to break in. If you
are having a tough time just zipping it and it feels real tight you
may need to get a size larger.
