    I am skinny, about 120-125 lbs. I am about 5'9-5'10, with dress shoes could be 5'11. Normally, 34R will fit me the best. I've tried 36S at Hugo Boss, and it fits me perfect, too. However, I had this jacket in 36R. The jacket is '08 Dior Homme from Kris Van Assche. The sleeves was marked & fold by the guy at tailor shop, and I think it is in a good length. The problem with this jacket is the length of it. The length, in my sight, seems to be too long. I don't know if I'm the only one that thought that, though. Please give me an opinion on what you think I should do for this jacket (in term of alteration).

    Good thing about the jacket: The shoulder tend to perfectly fit me.

    And this is what I think it should look like.

    P.S. Please don't mind the trousers, and the room, it's not my room :D

    Thank you very much, and I appreciate every comments.

    You're not wrong, it seems way too long to me.

    I went to the Dior Boutique, and the S.A. there told that this jacket was meant to be a little longer than usual. He told that it was a style that Assche created back in 2008. I don't know if the S.A. was just b*lls**t about the information or if it's really is. Should I alter them? What should I do?

    Ich_Dien : The jacket might seems to be a size too big, but it fits tight at the shoulder. Even if they have size 34R, I believe the shoulder might be too small for me.

    There's too much fabric at the shoulders at the back...You need a 34S in this style.

    You soon get used to it though.

    Only 9% of the world's population speaks English as a first language.

    The OP looks Asian to me. Could be the jacket is sized and cut for Europeans, that's why it appears to be too long yet the sleeves seem to be OK. I get the opposite problem, I can get the length OK but often the sleeves are too short, as most clothes here are sized and made for Chinese people.

    I don't know how people can sleep at night doing this type of stuff. That jacket is simply too big for you, too long, too wide at the hips/waist. Stylistically, its a center vent orphaned suit jacket. Since you can't return it, have the waist taken in, have the jacket shortened and stick the flaps inside the pockets so it wont be too obvious that shortend the jacket.

    On the positive side, it doesn't look too short when you're doing the YMCA or signaling a made extra point; so it has that going for it.

    Or better still gift it to your dad if he has the same shoulder size as you. Don't think you can salvage this even with radical surgery. It is a gonner.

    It totally depends on how you treat Indian bilinguals - at least 80m or so who study everything in English.

    I'm sorry for the grammar. Well, I tried to improve my grammar, but sometimes I am careless on the internet.
