I think it's perfect; any longer that thing's going to hit you mid-thigh if you went any longer.

When you shop for a jacket make sure that you or the SA measure from the collar to the end of the jacket and then from the jacket to the floor/ bottom heel of you shoes. Those two measurements should be close to a 50/50 split. Means if the number from collar to the tail of the jacket is 35 inches then from the tail to the heel should be 33-36 at the least.

This is unless you like the short jacket look some young guys tend to like but make sure your pants are tapered and you have little break.

Unless the Thom Browne look was intended, I do agree it looks short. Length isn't covering your seat, which makes the tail of the jacket look a bit off. Sleeves could do an inch or so and still show about 1/4" linen. Shoulders do look okay to me.
Is that a Fitz cut?

Definitely not intentionally going for a Thom Browne look.  :)  I would need to extend the sleeves out probably about 1/2-3/4", which is pretty typical for me.  I can never buy OTR with pre-cut functioning buttons, but that is a another story.  I think the seat looks awkward because I haven't popped the vent stitching yet which is making it bow out.  That with the fact my trousers were sagging makes for the unflattering look.  I have a long torso, but shorter legs so I don't like to go too long in the jacket so as not make my legs appear shorter as Althanis made mention.  It also hits at the first knuckle which I thought was the short end of acceptable classic fit?  It is a Fitzgerald cut.

 

Color acceptable for fall/winter wear? Primary tone is tan from a distance.

It looks like the right jacket length IMO. That fabric color/pattern makes it a fall/winter sports jacket.

I wouldn't do a jacket that short on a suit, but it looks fine to me for a sport coat.  Personal preference, I think.

Jacket length looks good from the front but from the back it is a bit short I think.

His pants are sagging too so it's making it look shorter than it actually is.

It think OP has a relatively longer-than-usual torso, hence the opposing opinions on length.

 

the jacket could stand to be longer, but might make your legs look too short if you go that route.

Corporate Card discount doesn't work on BBBF sale items, does it?

That's what I figure.

I went to the BBBF shop downtown and sadly found it already closed! I assume they're consolidating stock and sending them to 3rd parties (e.g., TJMaxx)? I would have thought there would be a deeper discount past 60% before they did this...

Hey guys,

Wnated opinions on Madison cut trousers.

I was more familiar with the fitz and clark models, but was pleasantly surprised by the Madison's flat front, high rise cut.

What do you guys think? Do you think the rise is too high on the Madison?
