Proper overcoat sleeve length?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know that the general rule for determining proper suit jacket sleeve length,is to allow for approximately 1/2" of dress shirt cuff exposure. But does the same rule apply for overcoats?  That is,should the sleeve length of an overcoat be adjusted so that 1/2" of the cuff of the suit sleeve be exposed?  What if the overcoat will also be worn without a suit? Your help is very much appreciated..

Mitch: Unlike the suit sleeve relationship to the shirt, the overcoat sleeves should be long enough to cover the sleeves of your suit and shirt by ½ inch, but you don't want them any longer. Good luck returning that parrott. Get it on e-bay? Andy
