I must be doing something wrong because a) I'm a skinny 135 pound 5'7 university student, b) my torso is extremely short,
So how can it be that my 36r (in one brand) and 38r in my other brands of suits are not extending long enough in the naval area? This picture isn't me but it sort of has a little bit of what I have and I can draw focus to the area easily with the circle I added:
Okay so...for me, this target area is parted too far to the point where you can see my dress shirt when I'm walking or at some angles when I'm standing still...I'm not fat and my torso is not long...so I don't understand what's up. 38r fits very well in the shoulders and my arms are very long for my size (73' wingspan or whatever) so the arms fit well in most cases, not all. So with the shoulder and chest matching nicely in the 38/36, the length of the jacket is annoying me and I don't know why that part of the jacket isn't coming together.
Is this how a suit jacket/sport jacket is supposed to fit? I feel uncomfortable with that area showing since it stands out like a white spot in a very otherwised streamlined look. Sometimes I feel like I'd rather just unbutton and not worry about it but it just doesn't feel clean to do this.
My first idea was that maybe the button isn't placed well because my torso is short so it doesn't measure up well with where the button is...but I have 3 jackets and all have this issue so it can't be that. I'm not going bespoke. I'm a student who's most expensive jacket is only worth 200 dollars. I assume a tailor can't lengthen a jacket since they can't magically generate matching fabric to do so...don't really understand why the length of all things is the issue when I'm short haha. Please let me know what's up with this and how I can combat this. Sizing up won't work because then the shoulders and chest don't fit well, too baggy. :(
