Something like this seems like the right proportions IMO:
That looks really short to my eye and quite top heavy... hmm. This is tricky.

That said, I think a truly long coat should be a solid navy and should have a very high top button placement... more like a St. Petersburg kind of look. I do think this coat looks a *touch* long given the pattern and style of the coat. I'd shorten it by 2-3 inches.
This seems to me the compromise decision, doesn't it.
Don't shorten it too much... you might throw off the balance of those mighty lapels.
Yep, that's what concerned me a little
I LOVE the coat, it's fantastic.
If you're still torn by the decision, I think you should ask Optimus Prime's opinion.
Thanks, but he's too busy fighting Megatron next to him to help...
