That is far from the worst of my purchases. This is supposed to be a long. Goddamn thing is 73 cms:

 

 

I have a few things incoming which are more classically proportioned. Hopefully I will be able to post some fits without falling afoul of the denizens of the SF politburo. 

 

As for the charcoal RL suit, I'll reserve judgment for now and see how I feel at the end of winter (and also work on improving my selfie skillz).

A slightly short suit jacket will not kill you. (Black Fleece short might, though...)  Anyway, feel free to run afoul of anyone. Makes this place fun to visit. :nest:

I mean, it's definitely not the end of the world. It's just a little irritating. The style learning curve has been surprisingly steep and expensive. So it goes.

I have several RLBL in long and they are a bit shorter than other makers. No worries overall.

post #41352 of 46059
Agreed. Aside from the length issue they fit very nicely. I'll probably stick with SuSu in the future, though. They seem to be the only affordable brand these days that have legit long sizes.

The jacket is short, but if it covers the entirety of your ass crack, you may be OK. As someone whose torso is shorter than average, a jacket shorter than is orthodox around here actually looks better on me. Ultimately, it's a matter of vertical proportion - how one best divides one's torso from one's legs.

Remember that the member of the SF Politburo who pointed out the shortness of your jacket has a propensity for jackets a bit longer than are currently fashionable - his choice, which works for him.

When in doubt, wear jacket bottomless (like the good doctor does below), it is the litmus test on jacket shortness

@upr_crust: The light grey Gagliardi suit is way too short. The button stance is also annoyingly high. I'll definitely get rid of it. I guess that is an occupational hazard when one runs the RTW gauntlet.

The charcoal RLBL meets the ass-crack criteria, and in my opinion looks pretty decent IRL. That photo was taken from a low angle so the perspective is distorted. I'll probably keep it, to be honest.

Having said that, I agree that a longer jacket looks better on someone with my body type. Perhaps not quite as long as Andy's jackets, but as you say, it works for him.
