With all this talk of 36 / 38 Short, what is the Standard height manufactures use when determining what the length of a Short jacket is?

Not you. All the Neapolitans make a shorter-than-average coat.Is it me, or are the Neapolitan-made (Borrelli / Attolini) jackets cut shorter than "˜standard' 38 / 38 R "˜s? I have seen them range from 30.25" to 31".

I find that I am almost in the same boat when it comes to Neapolitan-made jackets, which tend to be cut shorter than thus manufactured by other brands, thus I simply tend to have my tailor remove Â¼" - Â½" from the bottom for the proper length. Alas, this only really works on jackets where the pockets are located slightly above the 3rd button (in a 3-button SB jacket), thus the balance of the jacket is not lost.I've had a similar experience to BCH.
