DAMN you, Styleforum!! - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Thread Starter 
since the subject of jacket length came up in the thread, thought i'd throw in my 'rule of thumb,' which is exactly that-- i base the length of my jackets on my hands, ensuring the jacket is slightly shorter than the tip of my thumb. isn't that the flusser philosophy, rather than distance between floor and top of jacket (or one's head?), as arm and leg length would play important parts in the overall look of the jacket?

No, IIRC Flusser specifically rejects the rule of thumb, not only because people's arms are often different lengths, but also because one's arm length has little relation to the proper jacket length. If it works for you, though, do it. Some people are built that way. For me, (long arms, short torso) it would not work.
