    I'm on the fence on this one....this is unaltered and I know needs a little sleeve length adjustment and a little on the sides, but what do you think on the length? Seems a little long to me.

    thanks for your feedback

    A little long, but not drastic. The trend now is for shorter coats, but that does not look bad on you. The fit everywhere else is good.

    Thanks, it seems to fit well everywhere else. It's just the length that has me a little concerned, which also affects button placement. This is a 2B. Top button is about 2 inches below my sternum, bottom button right at my belt.

    Length is fine. I wouldn't worry about it. Just shorten the sleeves a bit and your set. Although if you're questioning it before you buy it, youll never really be comfortable with it! :nodding:

    Aside from shortening the sleeves, the rest looks OK to me.

    Its just a rad long, like an inch maybe. Your last pic really makes it seem long.

    Nothing wrong with the length at all. Nice fit.

    Shorten the sleeves slightly and it should be good to go.
