Does this jacket fit correctly? Trying to get a suit ahead of brother's wedding in 2.5 weeks.

I bought this suit a couple weeks ago, but I am unsure if I'll keep it. Feeling good about some of the fits, but odd about the jacket length.

For relevance, I'm ~6'2 and have long arms. Tried reading some articles on proper fit, but I'm stumped. I've attached some derpy photos of me in the suit. Thoughts on jacket length? Is it good? If not, is it easily tailored?

If these photos aren't clear enough, let me know if a side angle or something else could help with giving advice.

Fit is not bad but it might be too short - looks like a summer sports jacket. Did you try to find your size in long ? You got long arms but your jacket's sleeves are still too long :D

Oh, wow. The jacket might be too short? I thought if anything it was too long, and that it should be maybe a half inch higher up so to be between mid and lower crotch area. But I also haven't bought a suit in 6 years. This is a 42L.

Here's two more pic from when I tried on in the store with better lighting that might be able to gauge better off of.

As I said, it's a good fit overall. It looks way better with a shirt. According to your hands the length is good. You will need to shorten the sleeves and hem the pants. From what we see on the pictures there might already be a little tension on the belly so I would be careful with taking in the jacket. There is also some horizonzal creasing on your back that is a bigger concern. There is a few threads about this kind of creasing and alterations that can be done.

I think everything depends on the money you want/can invest into that suit. I would try a few different ones to see if different fit and brand can get rid of these creasing before thinking about alterations.

Length should go to middle of crotch for 6 foot and under and can go a little lower for guys who are taller.
