Just got this brown herringbone tweed jacket from Lee Baron in Hong Kong. They didn't measure the buttons for me (which surprised me quite a bit, they did with the first 2 suits i made there) the buttons were ready when I went for 1st fitting. I thought they were little bit high, but didn't think it is that big of a deal and probably wont be possible to change at this point. Overall I am happy with the jacket, but would like to know your comments on the fit or the buttons. Please excuse on the image quality. Cheers

THe jacket length looks too short by MC standards. As such the buttoning point appears to be high. Also the breast pocket looks too high

Take pictures again without the jumper. As it is now, the gorge is too high, the breast pocket is too high, the buttons are too high and the overall length is too short.

It would be easier to tell if the jacket were buttoned and you were wearing dress trousers instead of jeans. Jeans have a deceptive seat, rise, and it varies a lot. Just wear a dress shirt under.
