    Tks.

    Do you refer to the blue jacket or grey jacket or both?

    I would not trust a tailor who let that leave his shop as a finished product to fix it.

    Apologies for the quick and dirty photo.

    This jacket is longer than I would normally wear (a little over an inch). Does it still work, or would you shorten it a little?

    I fear the low camera angle may be over emphasizing the length. Right now, I think you could safely shorten it a bit as the flap pockets are high enough, but I cannot swear I'd say the same if the camera's view was more around chest/neck height instead of waist

    How well does it cover your butt? I'd also be concerned how the top half of the jacket seems trim, and the bottom half seems voluminous.
