    Hello. I've never really worn jackets and am hoping to start. I know jacket length has been covered ad nauseam on here but I was hoping for some comments on the length of this jacket. Thanks!

    if you curl your hands under the jackets and run them along it should be the correct length

    Hate the angle. Makes it hard to tell. is the back vent still sealed? That will make a difference. Gut reaction is an inch or so long. Probably long in the cuffs a bit to match.

    yea its too long. the minimum length is just enough to cover your butt.
    the max is an inch more than that.

    i dont mean to be insulting but. those pants are so narrow that it creates the illusion that your feet are huge.

    +1 on the curl you fingers with arms extended--most reliable method. Also, be very wary of sleeve length as most guys just leave them alone and most all need to be shortened. Best to wear a proper fitting shirt (correct sleeve length) to measure but can be done without by a tailor using a ruler. Finally, since you look pretty slim (or just have the skinniest legs possible) don't neglect taking the jacket in at the waist.

    Agree with everything above. Especially comments by a tailor. Please don't wear those jeans with a SC. While you are clearly skinny you'd be far better served with a non-jegging option for your jeans. Either that or look for a sleeker shoe.

    hard to tell from the angle but i think the jacket is a bit long, and also needs taking in at the waist to fit your frame. jeans and shoes are fine, i think it's just the camera angle.

    The length would probably be fine, but not with those pants. Honestly it makes it look like you're wearing jeggings.

    hey guys, thanks for the input. yeah, angle is bad (difficult when noone else around to take photo). appreciate input on jacket (and jeans) though! i wear the jeans (apc new standards) with tshirts but yeah probably too skinny for a SC.
