JL The thing that is jumping out at me is the way the quarters open on the SC. It's sitting oddly on your hips with the front of the jacket angling down (this is why I'm curious how it looks from the side). If this is important to you, can you please take pictures of both jackets now that the latter has settled a bit in the closet. I also think 30 inches BOC is a bit long. That's ideal for me and I'm 6 feet (my pant inseams are usually about 32 inches for reference). I do think the suit looks ok for length though.
