Jacket too short?

That’s a false choice; boxy cuts vs. too short.

a proper suit jacket covers your butt....period, full stop.

I’m 5’7” and all my suit jackets, sport coats and blazers cover my butt without looking oversized or boxy.

That's a regular size. Maybe long version would do with a bit of tailor help.

The reason why I'm asking about lenght of a jacket is my previous suit which had longer jacket and I've got a picture (only picture btw) of it so we could compare what looks better. Sorry for the mess in my room and suit condition but it is how it came to me. Size 40R, ready to wear, wool, three pieces from Moncrief London.
Maybe I should get Moncrief back as it's clearly longer.

I like my jackets on the short side but yours is too short. Sleeves look fine.
