This is exactly why I like to see the sources for fits and why I do it myself.

I think the tie is fine, personally. The whole fit is excellent, imo.

@Mr Knightley that is a great combination. I dig the two button cuffs.

Thanks Eric, very kind.  Shirt - a Charles Tyrwhitt cream end-on-end - and tie are both recent pressies from the good Mrs K:)

@jcmeyer I don't think that jacket is too short at all. It is certainly within your acceptable range and, owing to your short stature, ensuring your jackets are not too long gives you an illusion of height. It certainly is tight though.

That grey suit with the blue vest... no es bueno.

For today's attire, I delved into the archives, and came up with an ensemble that could be termed "The Best of the Worst" - the high-end products of lower-end menswear brands, all purchased due to my preternatural impulse for thrift (i.e. they were heavily marked down). I've not worn today's suit in several months, which, for me, is always a spin of the roulette wheel. Happily, I am down a few pounds from when I bought the suit, and it fits better than when I bought it.

Suit - JAB Signature Platinum
Shirt - Tyrwhitt Black Label
Tie - Lewin
Braces - New & Lingwood
Cufflinks - Harrod's, Heathrow Terminal 3
Shoes - Florsheim Royal Imperial

Agreed. It's also a good way for folks to see brands "in action."  A little bragging is okay as well!

You wear the best of the worst well, upr.

Yes, it's about 2-3 cm short but I feel like the angle on which the photo was taken might have exaggerated the effect. The jacket does cover most of my rear and divides my silhouette on two almost equal parts.

I just will learn and make sure my new additions take into account others observations.

 

@justinkapur hit the spot. I'm fully aware that most of my jackets are too short. I'm certainly going to adress this issue for my next purchases but in the meantime I must work with what I have. And to be honest, I don't feel like like my jackets are criminally short and deserve burning as they are right now, so I'll just enjoy wearing them and keep posting fits. Cheers gents!
