I think you have it just right.

Pretty sure DC's comments were aimed at Django's fit.

Difficult to tell with the photo angle, but are you entirely happy with the jacket's length? Maybe an extra 0.5"-1" might work a little better?

 

caveat: I tend to prefer longer jackets anyway... talking of which...

Finally I have my perfect blue blazer! I am happier than the photo might suggest.

 

Again, I would think maybe an extra little length might look even better. Of course, your own preference is the only truly relevant thing here.

No real irony (under any definition of the word) in most cases, I think; simply a matter of most of us being more interested in clothes than in photography of clothes. Talking myself as a case in point, I'm not interested in photography, so I just post snaps for the fun of sharing what I'm wearing, and for giving some vague context to my comments on others' outfits, even if my photos aren't particularly colour-accurate or clear. There's no incentive to get higher quality equipment or professional lighting or whatever, because taking better photos (at more time/effort/cost) isn't something I'm interested in. I'm sure a similarly aware/conscious thought process for many posters who, like me, post poor quality photos. You can still get a fair idea of the outfit and whether you like it or not, which is all that really matters.

 

And talking of terrible photos...

So relieved that I found my choral collection book for emergency situations.

Morning chores finished. Now, it is time to bundle up and find that perfect 9 foot Douglas Fir Christmas tree. I hope there is one left! If not, I better not come home.

And good picture to show Django the right length of a jacket.

Up until recently I never even considered the length of my jackets could/should be different from the way it came out of store.I never really paid much attention to it in the mirror or pics. But now you mention it, it looks awkward indeed. Thanks for the heads up.

I was just about to ask Don how to determine the desired length, so your comment and picture are really helpfull. Thanks!

Jacket length has nothing to do with where it lies in relation to your hands/fingers.

I like your style and most of your outfits you present here. But I think you could greatly benefit from a better cam and daylight pics. 

The pics are good enough to get an idea, but it would be much better to see the whole elegancy.

Holiday party at work. I am prepared for your disapproval.

Tie is Truzzi cashmere, socks are Panthy and shoes are Meermin. Rest is unremarkable.

Edit: Added spoilers since I was on my phone the first time.

As a general rule of, er, thumb it gets you in the ballpark, no? For the majority of folks posting here, it seems to work out that jackets which end somewhere on the last two bones of the thumb look proportionate.

Care to elaborate, good sir?
