1987


I swiped this 1987 photo from the "upscale men and women's retailer" Paul Stuart NY's Tumbler site.  Admittedly, 1987 was a long time ago, and I may have only 1 suit hanging in my closet from that era, but try as I might I cannot recall jackets ever being that long.

Was that truly the fashion, or is this simply an editorial shot?

Some of my jackets were that long at that time! They also had padded shoulders, yikes!

Happy Mother's Day to the love of your life Toad!

I think it may be an optical illusion due to his right knee being raised. The other side does not look terribly long to me. Though that was the era of draped Italian cut suits so it could have been slightly longer.
