A body length that short only looks okay with short sleeves. A long sleeve shirt needs a longer body.
I'm all for the Steed. The suit's drape, waist suppression, and button stance look perfect to me. The suit looks better than the sports coats because the jacket works well with the cut of the trousers. None of the other trousers look as nice as the Steed trousers.
What is the season for camel hair? When should I take it out and when should I put it away?

It makes the wearer seem like the suit is wearing him. It only looks too long because the buttoning point and pockets are too high. It's the fashionable proportions that are giving the suit this effect. If the jacket were shorter it wouldn't cover...

(Finding the waist is a bit more complicated for overweight men.) If your waist is higher than average, it requires a higher button stance. If it is lower than average, it requires a lower button stance. Naturally, the waistband of the trousers should sit at the waist. This is the...
