    The brown one hangs about five inches below the models hand, the cream one an inch above the hand. If it's not obvious the longer version costs $500 more than the shorter one. You implied you work in the dental industry? You dress real clean too, how can you not notice this easily?

    Ahhh my mistake looked too quick. As you can see the cream one here seems to be the same length as the brown you posted. Maybe they made a cropped version also

    Those are tough choices. a1923 personally works better for me slightly more so than devoa. I love both's jackets a lot though. I'm sure the Abasi + Rosborough is great too though. What fabric is the devoa piece?

    The Devoa is a jersey-like wool bonded to cotton. Fits real well, but no room for layering

    I'd actually get the A + R jacket in a different fabric, a thick textured wool/linen blend

    The A1923 jacket is a thick wool/poly blend with a full cotton lining. My main hangup with this jacket is that it looks exactly like what highschool boys wear:

    Gotcha, haven't seen this one nor a short brown one yet, perhaps the practicality if not design will better if I can find one.

    I really want to like the a1923 blazer, and it's probably my favorite of the three you posted, but those peak lapels really don't look good flipped up. Though I do dig the rumpled harnden-esque vibe when the lapels are worn down:

    NN, I have a feeling you'd be able to wear that a1923 jacket every day, or close to it - formal and with boots and shorts. Not sure about the other two in that regard.

    ^that pic with the lapels down sold me on #3, which I was leaning towards anyways

    #1 seems to have the best fabric composition though with #3 being the worse

    edit:

    Now if that Umit Benan jacket I picked up can also fold down the lapels similar to the a1923 blazer, I'm going to be so happy. Been wanting a black jacket for the longest time..
    As is I have not been able to find a photo online of it worn that way

    Not worn open
