    Any comments on the jacket length here? Sleeves are an inch too long and the mid to lower back needs to be let out, but I wonder about the body length. My own thought is that it is perhaps half and inch too long, but within the acceptable range.

    Would be nice to keep this as I have been wanting a grey flannel suit and this one is heavy Fox cloth for half the cost of the fabric alone.

    The body length looks fine to me.

    Length is classic. I like it. Covers your rear and if you make a fist with your arms at your sides, the knuckles of your thumbs line up with the hem of the jacket. Length is fine.

    As for the back, I am not sure letting it out is what you need to do.

    I did notice the shoulders are a tad wide. Not the end of the world but something to watch in future purchases.

    Exactly. No issue wearing it.

    I don't like the ticket pocket but that's my personal thing.
