Good morning everyone. Sorry for the poor lighting, the suit is a brown tic weave with red windowpane flannel. If i had such a thing i would have paired this with a burnt orange paisley or white linen with burgundy edge square. thoughts? Jacket is a bit short, will get longs in in this cut in the future.
Citan, I don't think that the jacket is unduly short - judging from the length of your arms, the hem of the skirt of the jacket falls within the tip of your thumb and the thumb joint, which is within the range of proper length (my salesman at Paul Stuart, when last I was there, rather pooh-poohed the traditional "rule of thumb" - the hem of the jacket being in line with the thumb tip).
I think that you've got one too many patterns going on with this fit, at least for my taste (currently - I've done three-pattern mash-ups myself many times in the past). I'd have gone with a solid shirt or a solid tie with this suit, though I like both the shirt and tie separately, and I like the color combination overall. A light blue shirt with the tie that you're wearing, or a solid burgundy tie with your shirt, or even, as you suggested, a burnt orange paisley (with a small-scale, muted pattern, if you're wearing the shirt shown).
hey UC, thanks for the suggestion. Sadly my blue shirt had an unfortunate stain and I replaced it with this last minute. I agree, one solid element would have been a good.choice.
Re length, I believe this issue is somewhat negated when my pants.fit better. I believe these are my best fitting pants in regards to the thighs, seat, and leg taper. I think I need to adjust a few of my trousers along with my jackets. I think the trousers today make the jacket flow.better and vice versa.
