40L sportcoats with less than 33" length

Thanks

Have you considered having a tailor shorten the jacket? 40L is my RTW size, but usually the jackets are too long, so I get them shortened. Most OTR 40L jackets are typically 34" long. A talented tailor can usually shorten a coat about an inch or so without throwing everything off balance.

any idea how much this costs? i really like the polo long styles because they are 31.5-32 inches.

Why don't you try a 40R?

The default length is usually abot 32" and the default sleeve length is between 25" and 26".

I am 6'4" and 22 and I guess I like the more modern, shorter jacket and would like the versatility to wear with jeans. As you can assume my arms need longer sleeves. I believe that it it not possible to get 2.5-3 inches from a typical 40R sleeve, right? In most I can feel an inch max beyond the lining.

I have the same problem except in some ways more severe. I am only 6'1 but need a 27.5" sleeve. The 40R length is perfect but you can rarely get long enough sleeves except in designer brands like Dior, Gucci, Burberry Prorsum, etc. The traditional brands are made for people with shorter arms for some reason.

Check out RLBL (Black Label). I'm a 39/40L and I remember the BL jackets being on the short side. This was 2 or 3 years ago though.

Ok, I see now.

I just realized that I gave away a 40L NWT Neiman Marcus Oxxford sport coat to someone. Timing is everything.

I don't want to reveal the recipients name but if he reads this he can concur if he wants to.

Gave away? That certainly would have been sweet.
