    What's the appropriate sleeve length for raincoats? Assuming that you're wearing the coat over a shirt and jacket, should the raincoat sleeves cover your jacket sleeves but still show your shirt cuffs, or should they also cover your shirt?

    If the latter, should they end with the shirt sleeves, or a bit after them?

    Consider the purpose of a raincoat. You should then have the answer to your question.
