Sleeves are definitely too short (not sure anyone actually said those were OK) -- I took a chance on the XS, knowing it might end up too short in the sleeves, and it did (though if I pull them down all the way, they almost hit my wrist; so it can look a bit better). I'm undecided on the body length. I think it is fine for wearing untucked -- as impolyt mentioned, increasing just some dimensions of a garment can make it look awkward. The peacoat I think suffers this a bit -- it is starting to get out of proportion in length-width from the adjustments I had made; and the same thing would happen to the shirt if I extended the body too much, since it is a tighter fit than the coat. Anyway, the feedback from everyone has been really interesting. I've always known my proportions are abnormal, but it is nice to get input from others about the exact details of my fits. As a side note, I still really like both the shirt and coat personally. I know the fits aren't perfect, part of which is due to my build; but these are vastly better than anything I had before (imagine taking a standard department-store shirt that is not slim-fitting and sticking it on my frame; as my wife commented, I'm no longer wearing tents around!). Figuring out the details for adjusting my body and clothes for an even better fit is something to work on, but I'm comfortable with what I've got now.
