I might as well post and say that thanks to this thread I ordered a few ties and was surprised at how nice they were.
Hard to say specifically from the one picture, but his right arm is bent and even then the bottom of the jacket only comes just past his wrist... But then the crotch of his pants is nearly hidden and from this lower POV that surprises me, so maybe he just has really long arms? In either case probably too short in general, but if your going to be short the DB odd jacket is forgiving. Seems like a rule that begs to be broken, especially when paired so casually with jeans.

[[SPOILER]] Based on the pulling at the button I would guess shoulders and chest are just too tight.
Hey is there an efficient way to search in here? Seems like searching by size should work, but something like 11.5 or 11-1/2 or 40R doesn't bring up anything.

What makes a collar fold and fall down just over the button. You can see this shirt is almost doing it, but i have some older shirts that are horrible for this. I need to keep a tie knot very tight and the tie up high to keep the collar from dropping. Anyway to fix or know what causes it?
You can do modern tailor for under $70. The question is which collar would it be? Maybe cutaway large?
