OK, so I'm replacing a jacket I used to have. It was a calf length, heavy, black leather duster style. It got a bit burned and...well, a bit exploded, so I don't have it.
I'm trying to choose between two styles, a 3-4 length, which breaks a few inches above my knee, sort of like this:
or this: link
The other choice is a little shorter, it falls to just below my arse, and it is this jacket: link
I dress, most of the time, almost exactly like the guy in the last link. Darkish grey-blue to dark blue jeans, black tshirt, black bike boots.
I will admit I would like to regain a little of the badass factor I had with my old jacket, cause it did billow out rather impressively. Going from the length of a wool coat I have, the shorter one should do that too.
The other factor is cost. Ordering from SoulRevolver, the short one is 350, and I can send it back if it doesn't fit quite right (I'd lose abotu 20 quid on shipping), the longer one is 500, but I can try it on.
I'm 6'3'', big in the chest and shoulders, carrying a few extra kilos but that will disappear in a few weeks.
What do you guys think? Longer or shorter?

Personally, I prefer the third jacket, but it could be because I think the guy in it looks incredibly attractive. How many extra kilos? Perhaps if there were a picture of you, I could better judge. P.S. I'm also a lover of leather (and fur), and have a leather mini-vest, jacket, and coat. I myself have a 3/4 length black leather jacket, quite similar to the one you posted, and I noticed that my particular jacket looks extremely flattering on fit slim people, but it shows any flaws that might be present (like an increased bum size).0
