    +1. Provided the jacket does indeed cover the rear end (which is a MUST), aim for this:

    FWIW, I think @Spandexter 's jacket is perfect. And not just the length!

    The above is what I shoot for. Good call, Elio, that was what I was about to post.

    I was making the mistake of gauging a jackets length by where it fell against the hand. Like Spandexter I also have longer arms, I guess, which was throwing my understanding of whether or not my own jackets were the right length. I'm glad I asked as I won't make that mistake going forward. Thanks all.

    i don't like the high gorge of spandexter's jacket and i do think it is too short.

    but the fit itself is very nice.

    Here's the big question: is it possible to wear a red blazer "in good taste"? If yes, how? I thought your comments would be along those lines when you mentioned different colors. If the answer is no, then ok. Just ignore my outfit when I wear it. For what it's worth, I appreciate your commentary on my outfits. I haven't spent much time in the good taste thread. I gladly admit to having much to learn. In the end though style is a choice. I've learned a lot about different styles here on SF, but I can't adopt them all. I don't think there is a single aesthetic that everyone should be aiming for, but I do want to at least learn so I can have the option.

    I left some names out so I had to redo the poll. If you voted before I re-did it, go vote again. Sorry.

    I've seen red jackets worn in good taste (eidos made one this season in PoW check that Stanley Korshak carried), but the red blazer is such a stretch of idiom for me that I'm not sure it can be done. Red's just such a loud color that it seems to contradict the deeply conservative, borderline conformist look that is the blazer's raison d'etre.

    That said, I don't understand blazers that aren't navy or, ironically enough, Blackwatch, so if it can be done, I probably wouldn't be able to imagine it until it was demonstrated to me.
