The jacket is short, but if it covers the entirety of your ass crack, you may be OK. As someone whose torso is shorter than average, a jacket shorter than is orthodox around here actually looks better on me.

If you keep posting those St Crispin's much more, I'll be forced to out and get a pair for myself
I have no idea why you say that (well, that's not entirely true), but believe me when I tell you, one's taste for discretionary spending on one's self is squashed when one has to spend money on idle fripperies such as bath fixtures (who knew a towel rack could cost that much?).

Having spent much of my adult life as an overweight person, I need to remember when I shop for jeans that I am no longer fat (or at least that fat), and that I can wear jeans that are slim cut.The renovations are moving apace,and the bank account will revive itself in due course, when I...
