Sorry I have no photos to show, somehow I didn't think of taking any pictures.
I was recently told by my tailor that a shorter jacket makes a short man look taller. I am quite short already but my most of my height comes from my torso. my legs are slightly shorter than my torso. I disagreed with him as the jacket he had made for me was much too short. Unfortunately he was quite adamant that the length was fine. The jacket didn't quite cover my ass and only managed to touch the top of it. Ultimately he is remaking it as I really found it too short.
My question is this: does a short jacket really make a short man look taller? Would not a longer jacket that covers the torso adequately look better and more balanced than a shorter jacket, especially if a man has a longer torso than legs? Is my outfitter mistaken or am just taking the piss?
