For a suit, I won't sweat the length but for an odd jacket it seems long just based off that picture. Weird though at 5' 10" I have jackets that are 31.5 inches and they don't look too long. Difference in anatomies I guess...

I think we all agree that it can be shortened a bit. Since you're going to see your tailor for the sleeves anyways, why not ask for his opinion on the length as well?

I also agree that it looks somewhat long - from the camera angle the jacket hem looks lower than your right thumb - but would be concerned about shortening much more that 1.5 cm since the hip pockets are also cut somewhat low (in line with the low button point, which you said you preferred on this coat). Is that an L?

General thoughts on these three fabrics?

Far left is grey/charcoal with brown deco and is a suit. The other two are jackets and pretty self-explanatory.

Spoilering the pic because I chose the largest size and didn't wanna clog up a page.

Eidos?

 

Also, may want to hide that email with the number of spammers flooding SF these days...

Completely personal opinions here, but the only one I like is the far left. It wouldn't make a staple, but it would be a nice suit to have in a rotation. The middle option I could only imagine wearing with a few things, as such it wouldn't be worn very often if it were me. The one on the right reminds me too much of a Burberry pattern.

Yes and good call - I will attempt to edit that now.

Done and done - thanks again for pointing that out.

E-mail from Marc Etlin? smile.gif Saw all three fabrics when I was in NYC a few weeks ago.

My views are consistent with Caustic Man's. The fabrics appear in the order of my preference. I nearly bought a suit in a fabric similar to the charcoal, but then I realized that I rarely wear suits anymore. Price was right, however. The middle fabric makes for a nice odd jacket if you don't have anything similar in your wardrobe and you already have plenty of staples. The fabric on the right is something I like in theory but doubt I would reach for that often.

Since I never post full fit pictures and had a photographer for once, I thought I'd share a picture from this past weekend with my two oldest as we get ready to head out to the Daddy/Daughter dance.

TM - I have the jacket pictured on the right.  It is an unbelievably beautiful fabric.  My tailor was the most impressed with that one when I brought him a few jackets to have altered.  That being said, Ambulance is right - it is very difficult to pair/break into rotation.  I find myself reaching for it and then changing my mind.  I've worn it with grey/green flannel trousers, white shirt, burgundy ties and I think it looked good, but don't necessarily feel completely comfortable.  Hope that helps.

Lovely pic! Beautiful girls and a proud dad. smile.gif Thanks for sharing.

Edit: i have the impression that SF dads have daughters more often than sons, is that right?

Thanks, gents.  I am most definitely a proud papa and next year will have a third date for the dance when our youngest will be 4.  It's funny you mention the abundance of girls as we have noticed the same trend  amongst most of our neighbors and friends.
