Yea, I was more aggressive about the lower buttoning point than about the length, which I think resulted in a couple of jackets that are a bit "top heavy" in that there's a long line from gorge to button, and then a shorter line from button to hem. It's just something that I have to keep an eye out for in future commissions. These are my first bespoke commissions ever, and I'm very happy with them - just evolving my eye and preferences over time. As a word of advice to anyone starting out doing bespoke, go slow, do not expect perfection with your first few items.
