I've heard suit jackets and sport coats should either (a) just cover the bottom of your buttocks or (b) be just long enough to curl your hand underneath the bottom as you're wearing. I'm 6' tall, which puts me right on the border of R and L jackets, and my shirt sleeve size is 36/37. The difference between (a) and (b) for me, then, is several inches. Which would look better proportionately: a jacket that comes to the bottom of my rear, or that is long enough for my arms? In other words, is it more important to look proportional with the torso or the arms? Thanks!
