Correction: Tom Wolfe is a pretentious, prudish, invicibly stupid asshole. And a highly overrated writer too, though he has his points. The jacket is a fine length. If the suit was a body skimming Dolce and Gabbana, body conscious style suit or a classic Gieves and Hawkes or Huntsman model, I might advocate for a little longer jacket. But for anything else, I think that a shorter skirted style jacket looks better. Milanese jackets are generally shorter skirted, for example. The waist looks to be at the right height, and the sleeves seem the right length. I don't understand why so many men seem to be wearing jackets longer and longer. Don't they understand that puberty ends doesn't extend into their twenties and thirties? Or are they influenced by Sunday Morning Televangelist style?
