Looking in the March 03 issue of Details at my gym.

One of their new trends: the short jacket. It's just like a sport coat, to be worn with jeans, etc., only....the jacket is too short.

Just like Thom Browne.

The annoying thing here is that the too-short jacket is now being made by a number of fashion houses, and will soon be snapped up by many trendoids.

Details says the shortness of the the jacket is what separates it from a jacket that one would wear for business. The sexual effect is to play peekaboo with the bum, halfway to the butt showing-effect of an eisenhower jacket or a toreador outfit, only with suit jacket styling.

Ick.

Yeah, most do better to have full coverage...

Yet another example of "fashion" over classicism.

I'm fond of shorter jackets, really.

I realize people hate this guy because he looks ridiculous in photos, etc. but it's done to draw attention.

I like shorter jacket as well. The roman 50s look, incredibly sharp.
Longer jacket with a lot of waist supression looks dated to me.

I'm with these guys.

Thom Browne isn't making business clothing.

I like Thom Browne's suits, and I like the shorter jacket. It's been going on for awhile, with the more contemporary fashion designers. My Helmut Lang jacket is 30" long in the back.
