[[SPOILER]] TKE - I think you may have arms that are slightly longer than average, which is causing a lot of the "it's too short" comments. Many people are used to seeing a jacket end mid thumb - which is generally ok for people with average length arms. Longer arms make the gap between thumb and jacket hem larger and out oft he range people are used to seeing. To my eye it looks fine, especially considering it is a casual sport coat.Congrats on really improving your...
How can these still be here?
Bottom of the lapels are no good, but as PB said maybe can be tweaked. The rest is very nice though, especially the shoulder.

Check out Sierra trading post. I got my wedding suit there - Isaia single breasted, single button, peak lapel in chocolate brown. One wacked-out combination of formal and casual. Was exactly what I was looking for and everyone said I looked smashing. Suit was round $800 w/ sales I think. Best of luck.
Measurements please.
