Those adages don't work for me. They put the coat a full inch lower than it needs to be, so I need to explain this to my tailor every time I need something altered or made. Because, invariably, when I say that the jacket is too long, they do the floor-bottom of jacket-collar measurement and tell me that it's fine. Nevermind that they don't even LOOK at the jacket fit - they just do their measurements and tell me it's right.
