    I really like this jacket -- but is it unsalvageably short? I'm not used to this style so it feels really short when I lean over and can feel my kidneys kissing the breeze. I do like the style, however. Any thoughts appreciated!

    The body is on the cusp of being too short, but that is a stylistic choice. Of more concern are the sleeves, which, from the first photo looks to be about 1-2" short. The cuff is also loose, which exacerbates the issue.
