I don't think so. I would wear a gray t shirt if t shirt is your jam. If you had black shoes I would say it is fine.

The length appears to be okay. Current fashion trends call for what I consider to be overly short (sometimes ridiculously short) jacket lengths, and that's certainly not what you've got going for you with this blazer. But by most traditional standards (and if you're buying a Brooks Brothers blazer, even one with a moderately trim cut and narrow lapels, I suspect you may just have some degree of respect for traditional clothing standards) its length is perfectly fine. Absolutely no need to shorten it.
As something of an aside, I note that your pictures are both taken from the front. As are most "Is this jacket the right length?" pictures. But do bear in mind that one of the key determinative factors in assessing proper length is the extent to which a jacket covers your butt. This is generally a far more meaningful standard than any rule-of-thumb guideline about a jacket coming down to some point on the wearer's thumb, or his hand, or whatnot. Would that more "Is this jacket the right length?" pictures were taken from the side and rear. But I get that this isn't the norm, so relatively few people are likely to start doing it this way. (Adopting a natural posture in "Does it fit?/Is it too long?" pictures would also be a huge help. But, again, most people adopt an unnaturally stiff and upright posture in such pictures, and I don't see that fundamentally changing anytime soon.)
I concur. The length looks fine from what I can tell. Your shirt sleeves look a tad too long though. I usually don't have that much cuff showing.post #19038 of 2874512/8/12 at 7:09pm
Ran across this picture online while researching linen jackets earlier and thought I'd ask your opinions on it.
It appears to be a sportcoat with short sleeves, probably for tropical climates. If the fabric was good and the length was post-posterior, would it ever be acceptable for someone to wear something like this? With a collared short-sleeve shirt, mind.

Not an answer to your question, but FWIW I have bought 31 inch sleeve BB OCBD's at a BB outlet and you can not get those on the website. It is possible that RL makes the shirts for another market or that the shirts are deadstock.post #19044 of 2874512/9/12 at 1:29pmpost #19045 of 2874512/9/12 at 2:17pmpost #19046 of 2874512/9/12 at 3:31pmQuote:
It's a cashmere sweater. It could be possible that Ralph Lauren makes stuff dedicated to the Asian market, because the guys out there are usually smaller than other markets. But is normal that brands difference the markets with sizes?post #19047 of 2874512/9/12 at 3:31pmI am going to a Christmas Party at my golf club next week. Very old school type club, and this is a very nice event where all men wears suits. I have a Navy BB Fitz suit that I plan on wearing. I would like opinions on shirt, tie and shoes. I have both walnut calf and black allen Edmond strands and since it is an evening event, I assumed black shoes would be more appropriate. I expect many are going to tell me I should wear a more formal cap toe shoe, but I am just starting to get my act together on my wardrobe, so take it easy on me. I was thinking white shirt,French cuffs, but not sure about tie and colour of shoes? I realize there are plenty of options, but you guys are the experts, give me your opinion .post #19048 of 2874512/9/12 at 5:27pm
Might anyone know how to remove 'dimples' from the collar of an OCBD Lands End shirt? I have tried ironing with a large amount of pressure, spray water, spray starch, and high steam setting on the iron to no avail. It has been hard to accurately capture this with a picture but perhaps this will appear familiar to someone who may be able to suggest a solution. Thanks.post #19049 of 2874512/9/12 at 9:13pm
