I think you're right. The back shot doesn't look like the jacket quite covers his gluteal fold. OP must just have really short arms, which is why you shouldn't judge proper length by where the bottom of the jacket hits on your hands.
As far as shortening a suit jacket, I've had it done to a couple. In addition to the problems of balance mentioned above, it is REALLY expensive to have done. I believe I paid north of $100. This suit absolutely does not need shortened.
