Generally I would say about 1" longer than a suit jacket, but as Jovan said, a slightly shorter one can also look good. It depends on the individual and the style they're going for. Peacoats are also traditionally quite boxy and rather roomy, but a tighter and/or more tapered fit isn't inappropriate, as long as you don't go overboard. And yeah, iammatt's looks long to me, too. Could be the picture. But generally, I would rather have a peacoat 1/2-1" shorter than standard as opposed to 1/2-1" longer. To my eye, peacoats that are too long make one's legs look stumpy.
