I have a question regarding appropriate suit jacket length. I just received a new MTM suit. I was professionally measured, but have not had a follow up session yet with the tailor. I have consistently always worn a 38R to 40R depending on brand and how trim I want the fit to be. Accordingly, the back length on all of my jackets is between 30 to 31 inches at the longest. I also confirmed a 30 1/2 length is the appropriate measure for my height (I'm 6 foot and the distance from the collar on my jacket to the floor is 61 inches, so a 30 1/2 inch length would place the jacket half the distance from my collar to the floor). To my surprise, the suit jacket I received has a back length of 32 1/2 inches. In other words, the jacket extends a good 2 inches below the end of my butt. I'm disappointed to say the least, and I'm trying to figure out if this is just a complete mistake on the tailor's part, or whether a longer cut like this is something some tailors prefer. We discussed what I wanted out of the suit and how I would use it (for work, so trim/fitted but appropriate in cut), but we never discussed back length because frankly I always understood it to be a given that the jacket should cover your butt and no more. I would never buy a suit off the rack that fit this long in the jacket. I'm willing to push the tailor to make things right, but want to make sure this was truly a complete mistake before making my points. I've checked out other threads, and covering the butt but no more seems like the accepted industry standard. Luckily, I think the pocket height from the hem will allow at least an inch to an inch and a half of shortening.
