Covers butt? Long enough. Does not cover butt? Not long enough.

Armhole size is part of the equation, though it probably gets more press than it deserves. Fullness across the shoulder blades is essential. The rarely-seen action back (a.k.a. bi-swing back) also would be welcome.
I don't know why this idea keeps sticking around, that jacket length has anything to do with your arms. Arm length varies. Some people have no arms at all, and still have a correct suit length. So I will say, yet again: If a suit jacket does not cover the bottom, it is too short. If it goes substantially beyond, it is too long.
