Wow that's a beautiful jacket, and a great fit.

It fits fine unless you're slouching in your pictures. In which case, don't slouch.

great jacket up there

Body length is fine. If it were any longer, it wouldn't look right in relation to the sleeve length.

stop nitpicking teger, and accept that it looks great

Pretty sure if he lifts his arms it would ride above his belt line which would be really annoying. It could definitely use an inch or so.

Pics don't always convey fit all that well either, pretty sure if he feels uncomfortable with it then it could be too short.

For the time that we are mortals, we will just have to unbutton our jackets if we want high armholes and plan to reach for high shelves.


If people don't understand that idea, then size up.

Too slim? Not long enough? I think you crazy on this one, Teger. That's a spot-on fit.

It's funny how uncomfortable we're willing to be in the search for the proper fitting jeans, but we're far less flexible regarding the fit of our jackets. Teger man, just give it a test spin for a few weeks, maybe a month. See if you find yourself more comfortable in it. It will hardly (if at all) depreciate its resale value on B&S.
