In response to Crat's request, I should say that both the blue and the grey suits seem well made, but the cut looks too short in the jacket, but in keeping with the current fashions. For the classic, timeless look, the rule of thumb is just that. Allow the arms to relax and rest at the sides, then turn the thumb in toward the leg. Where the tip of the thumb touches the leg is the length the jacket should be. This length both covers the seat area, and allows the drape of the jacket to give the impression of slender elegance. Ideally, the middle button on a three-button, single-breasted jacket should be on the natural waist; on a two-button version, the upper button should be either on the waist or just above - somewhere between where the middle and top buttons of the three-button jacket. For the best fit and drape, trousers should also sit on the waist, not the hip-bones. Crat's suits show him to be a la mode, but in a season or two they will look too dated for confident wear. Fashion in fine, but the classic cut will always give timeless and enduring elegance - and it is no more expensive.
