I recently bought a suit. I have 90 days to return it and am wondering if I should do so? My concern is whether or not the jacket is too short.
I thought nothing of it at the time - though I admit I am not all that knowledgable about suits, so perhaps this means nothing. At any rate, a friend of mine pointed out that it might be a bit short. Now I am having second thoughts.
The length of the jacket aside I like the suit and would for sure keep given the price paid. But this detail (jacket length) has me uneasy.
Is it too short or not? I heard that suits these days are getting both slimmer and shorter as things start to lean this was as the "modern" look. This is okay with me. If my suit just happens to be more so on the "modern style" side of things I am okay with that. But I do not want to be walking around looking like a fool. Essentially, is the suit acceptable / could I wear this and not look dumb?
I feel as if the jacket is long enough from the front and sides but a bit short the back. This is just a gut feeling. Am I off base on this? Again, I do not know much about suits. It could just be my intuition kicking in as most shirts I own (e.g. polos, dress) shirts get a bit longer at the back.
