    Standing with too erect posture?

    No. The problem is in the jacket, not you.

    That's what tends to happen when nobody knows what they're talking about.

    It means, were you to look at the fit from a profile vantage point, the front and back are not balanced. In this case, the back would be longer than the front.

    That's part of what it's supposed to be. Why it's nere, and not elsewhere. If that doesn't suit you, ignore it.

    You don't need to look from the side to detect a balance problem, and it doesn't necessarily reflect in length.

    OK. Is this something that can be fixed?

    How many moopoints do I get?

    Maybe. Depends. When someone explains what a short front balance is, I'll tell why.

    I haven't checked today's exchange rate.

    Mktitsworth's jacket doesn't need cinching. It's front balance is short. 100 foopoints to the first person who's already posted in this thread who can explain what that means.

    Not really a balance thing. The strap is short.

    Thanks for the input Jeffery. What does that mean though?

    Ditto. What's a strap?
