HOW LONG SHOULD A PROPER SUIT JACKET BE AND HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE PROPER LENGTH?

DA MAN - Style - - Style FAQ -

The hem of a proper suit jacket should fall to the top curve of your but­tocks. If the hem stops on top of your but­tocks, it is too short. If it falls all the way to the bot­tom en­tirely, it is too long.

An­other easy way to determine proper length is us­ing your hands. Hold your hands by your side, com­pletely re­laxed, and see if the hem of the jacket stops mid­dle of your hand. If it does, then that is the ideal length.

Fi­nally, the most ac­cu­rate way to mea­sure a jacket’s proper length is to see if it falls be­tween the knuckle of your thumb and the joint above it (the car­pometacarpal joint, if you want to be tech­ni­cal about it).
