    Good eye. Yes, it is longer.

    the length doesn't warrant any drastic alteration IMO and would be less apparent in a natural stance. It's no biggie. Enjoy your jackets

    JL, no need for a picnic attack. They look fine.

    Actually, the longer jacket doesn't really bother me; I kind of like the lines and the little extra "swoop" of the quarters. It's more the shorter jackets that concern me: are they too short? I am obsessive by nature, but when I look at these 2 jackets they appear short to me. Am I overreacting (having a picnic attack)?

    Btw, the gun check is fantastic; the cliche "pictures don't do it justice" definitely applies here. It's way better than I imagined based on photos of swatches, etc.

    Yes, sleeve tapering sounds like a good idea. I have fairly well-proportioned upper arms but my forearms & wrists are on the slender side.

    Lol. It's a picnic attack. They aren't too short at all, I kinda prefer that length for odd jackets and length 1 for suits. Your legs are spread out a bit so the quarters open more on the shorter jackets. Amend the sleeves and post a selfie.

    Coming from a sprezzy dresser like you, that helps lower the picnic level a few baskets.:satisfied:

    Hey Noodz, when u coming to Btown? Wanna take in a few museums, maybe go shopping for a new Chanel bag for the missus? Let me know, brah.

    ^ So now we measure picnic attacks in numbers of baskets. Sounds about right. I suggest the :foo: scale. Much like 5 :foo: is the highest form of praise, 5 baskets could be the highest level of panic.

    It's a Ben silver grenadine. By far my nicest tie with the kiton I bought from gmmcl. It was also bought from a member. I bought the 2 pindots on AAAC.

    I'm not worthy...

    Looking good, AJL. I like the length on the last two better.

    Dude, I don't care where we eat. My hotel is near the Farraguat West stop. I can jump on the train and meet you in China Town or something if you want. We can figure it out in the morning.

    JL, no picnic attack warranted, but I do think the shorter jackets look better. The first would be fine for a suit, but for an odd jacket, I think it's too long.
