Is this cotton sportcoat too short?  Another (cotton/linen) I am looking at is the same length

Yes, looks that way.

Length looks good, SC's can/should get away with being a little shorter.

 

Button stance could be lower though. How far from your belly button does it sit?

The L in the one I am looking at is one inch longer than this. 

 

A suit that I think fits well is 2.5 inches longer

While it's difficult to say for sure with just a "from the front" view, it doesn't seem objectionably short to me. Particularly given the current fashion trend for ridiculously short suits and sportcoats. (Not that yours is in any way ridiculously short.)

By traditional standards, and going by the somewhat inaccurate general rule having to do with jacket length and the curve of your fingers when your hands are at your sides, it's probably within an inch or so of being the ideal length. As a real world matter, that's close enough, especially when it's a casual cotton sportcoat we're talking about. Don't worry about it.

I checked and it is about 1.5 inches from my belly button

length is 29.5 from the bottom of the collar

I am 6'1 and a 32 inseam

Here is me in a suit jacket that I think would be a better length (although I might be comfortable with casual sportcoats being shorter-still developing my taste)

 

32.5 inches from the bottom of collar

Thanks.  This one is a sunk cost and I hardly wear it but am looking at another that is the same length in cotton/linen

 

Here is a side view

Vent's aren't popped and it covers your butt. Length approved!

 

I like the shorter cut of jacket in a SC. It has less weight to it, it's playful! As long as you're not hanging out of it, it's fine in my books.

 

Moving along: I'm about to buy my first blue suit, and wonder what people's particular favourite fabric styles are for a "do everything" get-up. One day i will have a bold pinstripe, but i can't be that daring right now. What's traditional? Herringbone? Sharkskin? Birds-eye (or is that too much?)?

FML! Zegna is having a 30% off sale on their spring/summer suits. I am beating myself over the head for paying full retail. FML!

You want your first blue and go to suit to be plain as possible, so I would not go with a Herringbone. I'm not too familiar with sharkskin and birds-eye, but I don't think I would go with those either.

Would be grateful for any advice and tips on where to find it (or some other suit in the same category).

How can you tell that the fit is perfect from that picture?

Hello everybody, 

 

I was wondering about these shoes: http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/product.aspx?c=1215&sc=1215&pid=68092

 

I like the look (and the price even more) but before buying them I noticed (or am I imagining?) that they were slightly... square-toed.  Now, the fashion media has driven me to a state of utter paranoia when it comes to square-toe shoes - I'm supposed to avoid them like the plague and if I am ever caught wearing a pair of the horrid creations it shall be my fashion demise.

 

So the question to you experts is, I suppose, are they square-toed or are they alright, because I can't quite tell.

Oysters, do not engage.
