Don, really nice fit but as for the jacket needed 2" MORE in length, I don't see it. Your finger tips are almost at the tip of the jacket when they are straight. As it stands now you could not curl your fingers comfortably around the bottom of the jacket which I believe was the standard for assessing if a jacket is too long or too short. I think you have it just right.

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.

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...

 

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.

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?

then what would you base it off of? if it covers your derriere? because unless you have organgutan arms, i'm assuming that proportional arms would be a clear indicator as the picture explains.

 

if you are right, then my business dress class at Wharton Business School severely ripped me off....

and sorry for the triple posting but another general rule of thumb is that if you do not definitively know the answer or solution to something you cannot say the following:

 

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

 

@edmorel you leave yourself open to a lot of challenging when you say something matter of factly.... just saying but point taken, to each his own.

Disclaimer: I'm still learning, primarily from you folks.

I think what Ed means is that, since the arm length/torso length/inter-relating proportions can vary from person to person, placement on fingers is not necessarily reliable. If I'm not mistaken, "correct" placement (setting aside the fickle moods of fashion) has more to do with where it sits in relation to your seat and inseam, and if I'm correct, the hem of the jacket should just about evenly bisect you, which means it should hit right at the apex of your inseam or just above (or, as PhatGuido once said -- long enough to cover your ass).

Yes, on most people that ends up being somewhere around or just above the thumb terminus, but not always. Take Spoo as an example. He has longer arms. So if you look at his full fits, the jacket ends much further up on his hand, even though the jacket hem is just about exactly at the apex of his inseam. Me? I have much shorter arms in proportion to my torso and body length, so mine is closer to the tip of my thumb -- though, honestly, it varies a lot since I don't get my stuff custom made.
