Hi, I'm new to the forums. I've just bought a new coat but not sure of my fit.
Is this the "right" fit?
I've read that the shoulders are the most important part of fit and so I made sure they were in line with my shoulders.

The length looks fine to me. Plus points for the chest welt pockets, they're great for keeping hands warm

Personally I'd say its too short, however the trends for this year are really short suits coats/jackets. So I guess its really personal preference.

To me, it looks a little on the short side, looks ok in the shoulders.
