Hi!

I saw that jacket which looks great in my oppinion. What do you think. Does this jacket fit good?

What do you think of the shoulder width?

I have also a generally question to the shoulder width. Where should the shoulder part of a shirt, jacket, t-shirt, polo... end (where should the seam where sleeves begin be?)?

The shoulder seam should rest on the widest part of the shoulder. That jacket's body looks okay from the front and its length is hard to assess, but it appears to be too narrow at the shoulders.

AW: Does this jacket fit?

AThank you very much. Do you think the length is OK? I think that a size bigger won't look good.

Yeah, it's clear that there is not really a strict rule which can't be adapted to the personal needs. But its good to have a reference.

Sorry for forgetting. It looks slightly short in back. If it rides up when bending, it is too short and won't provide the protection from the weather that outerwear should.

Also, on further inspection, your shoulders are uneven, which is making the jacket look distinctly too narrow on one shoulder. That very likely can be corrected by careful exercise.

In my opinion fits good. It reaches a belt line, so is long enough and if you don't feel it too narrow in shoulders, you should wear it, because it looks fantastic :)
