Looks nice, I saw that moonbeam jacket when I was there yesterday.

Seriously?? Most people have no idea who that was. Others thought that was really me and were saddened upon hearing I died a few years ago.

I had no idea who it was, but in my mind that is what you look like.

You're creeping me out. 44L. Does anyone think the coat length is too short? FYI, Frank is opening up the quarters a bit.

Maybe slightly short, but it is hard to tell without seeing your whole frame. He leaves some room in the hem so it is probably not too late to bring it down a bit.

Oddly enough, I uncannily look almost, but not quite, entirely unlike my avatar.

...And +1 on pB's comment too.

It's so hard to tell from a couple of snaps where the finest points of perfection lie. Particularly without seeing a full on head to toe shot.

All in all it looks very good.

As to the need for additional length. It might have a slight 'slimming' effect to add a 1/4" or so but you are currently well within the range of 'all good' to me. Slightly more open quarters would be fine.

The need for additional length seems more possible on jacket number 2 than on jacket number 1.

the jacket is cut like a 44r

it needs an extra 1.25" in length, as the jacket is short now.

You can't tell if he needs that much length from looking at just the top block. I guarantee he doesn't need 1.25''.
