^ I was hoping to not hear that but I think I will go forward with the shortening for a couple of reasons.
The main one being it is an older Oxford overcoat that I thrifted so I doubt I will find something better for the price.
I also don't think the lowest button is as low as I had imagine it is just below the waist and above the sleeve ends.
There is a small hole at the bottom of the coat that if I shorten the coat would be a non issue.
That photo isn't great so I will post another photo and then post and after.
This is what I suspect it will look like after I get it altered.
Any other opinions would be greatly appreciated. I will also post this in the alterations thread to see what they think. Thx
