would somone please remind me again what the point is of having the back of the tie be longer than the front of the tie?

Rather silly contrivance.

I completely agree, but the problem is that your justification was based on traditional/canonical reasoning. If you are going to break the so called rules then fine, but don't justify it with the shards of the rules you have just broken. Also, I would argue that if the social connotations of black-tie come across poorly in a given situation, then it wouldn't look good in the first place.

Final fitting on half canvassed vbc perennial solid iii, Anthony Cleverley Cameron II semi brogues.

I feel it's bit on tight side as I'm really slender.

More relaxed trying to mix four patterns.

Brough out my Miler tweed cap yesterday, a sure sign that autumn is here:

Post-doctoral pattern matching here - yeah, sure, tie and upholstery; but...check out the subtle vertical striping on the suit, against the books arranged vertically in that bookcase.

 

I'm scared to post again in the presence of such mastery.

And @EFV - just superb. Fit of the month.

It seems like he's trying to straddle a dressed down version of a stroller and/or tux, but a stroller is day time (semi) formal and a tux is night time (semi) formal, so I'm having trouble understanding exactly what context this is intended for.

That's a good point that I missed.

Out of the stuff I've bought over that period, this is the only suit I intend to keep. It's staying despite its, uh, shortcomings.

 

Your play on words reveals what you already know: the jacket is far too short. There is no point in keeping this suit, either.
