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.

For some people that rule is simply impossible. I have pretty long arms (34)  but I'm only 5" 8 and weigh 145 lbs. 38s look ridiculously long and baggy on me

Button stance being this low makes the SC seem very long, despite the fact that it falls in the acceptable range. Shoulders seem pretty big for you as well. It just looks as though there is too much room in that SC for you. Also, it looks like those sleeves could be let out 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch. The overall appearance of the coat could be due to the stance and the top-down perspective of the photo. I love the shoes with those pants. Depending on your preferences, you could even hem the pants a tad to get a little less break.

I just saw a guy walking with a 3 button sportcoat with only the bottom button done. I thought everybody should know.

Did you punch him in the neck for this travesty?

I definitely agree that the jacket fits big in the chest generally.  My hope is to fill it out better, with the help of my new lifting regimen.  It's aspirational.  Yeah, I'm also starting to realize that I might need to go with higher button stances, but too high and it makes my already freakishly long torso look even longer.  Us long torso'd skinny dudes don't have it easy.  confused.gif

 

I realized after taking the picture that the jacket sleeves were riding up a bit though you can't really tell, and the shirt sleeves are a tad long.  Also, believe it or not, but my left arm is actually slightly longer than my right arm - a realization my tailor and I only recently awkwardly came to - hence the appearance of a lot of cuff on the left arm (before, she would measure only one and tailor them both the same.  This obviously no longer works).

 

Thanks a bunch for the feedback!

me too!  I noticed the same FP book.  I just recently "discovered" his stuff at Parrish Art Museum.

Not a fan of the fullness of the pants around your hips. Relative to the slim fit of the jacket, it makes you appear very bottom heavy. Excellent, otherwise. I'd definitely wear something like this with slightly slimmer pants.

Keep it or dump it guys? (If I keep it, I'd obviously have it tweaked [sleeves, potentially waist])

I think if a really good tailor can make the bottom of the belly of the lapels smoother and more graceful a keeper definitely.

I can't get past the lapels... sorry.
