Jacket length

Is this jacket too short? It appears to cover my butt in the back (just barely), though looks shorter than most in the front based on the thumb test.

It’s just borderline. In the end my preference would be for just an inch longer perhaps.

You’re standing still now, so yes, it is technically covering your backside, albeit barely. When you start to move, however, that coverage will disappear.

This is a custom made suit, and appears to have a little fabric inside the back. Would it be dangerous to ask the tailor to lengthen it by a half inch? Is that possible and would it screw with the balance?
Just leave it alone. The outcome of such an attempt may be far worse.

The length is borderline. Save the tweaks for the next time.
