    I keep seeing different lengths and am curious if someone can provide some specifics - single breasted jacket?

    Assuming it is a solid color 2-button center/no vent and your waist is around 33"-34", 2 1/8 to 2 1/4 yards should suffice. Add 1/4 yard for plaids/windowpanes and 1/8 yard for side vents.
