The Correct Length Of (Casual) Blazers
I was just flicking through another style forum on which I saw a bunch of members lay into another rather viciously because his blazer was "ridiculously too short". The problem was, I didn't see anything wrong with it. This has worried me.
If I stick to the "traditional" rules of how long a blazer should be (gripping the end with your arms stretched down), then most blazers would be covering my whole ass. This seems rather too long for a casual blazer for me and in most high-street shops, the blazers are generally shorter anyway. I'm quite happy as long as a blazer covers about half my bottom.
Is the shorter blazer acceptable? Are these rules out of date? Or do they only apply to suits? Or AM I, more likely, just overthinking things?
