It fits just like it should.
Looks good too.
All you need is to wear it as most as you can.

44 and 46 should both have the same back length. If I'm not mistaken, the back length of the 618 is the same across 4 sizes, from 40 to 48.

The jacket looks fine, by the way.

No, it’s graded across the sizes. Gets slightly longer with each as it should.

OP’s size is spot on I think. It’ll get closer as it breaks in.

On a somewhat related note, one of the worst mistakes I’ve made in jacket buying (especially custom) is taking pronouncements about which lengths are appropriate or too long, etc. Ultimately I am taller than average (with a long torso) and much taller than average in the 50s, so if I get the same length as then, the jacket is actually much shorter on me than it was on them.

Looks a bit boxy as of the moment however this fits just right after I get it wet a few times should look better. The 44 was armpit constricting and could see my T-shirt in the back and hips.

It is 25 back length for a 44 and a 26 for a 46.

Yeah the size 44 was wayyy to short and giving me armpit constriction right as a I wear it.

44-TALL would also work, if it exists... If you're taller than 6'-1.5" chances are you need tall sizings. Regular sizing will always be a bit short. Or you can go up a size to get the length, the 46 doesn't look bad either.

It won’t look boxy at all once it’s been worn in and gotten wet. You sized right.

44 way to short and small
Tbh this doesn't look bad either (although armpit constriction you mentioned is bad obv.) The main issue is you have low rise pants on wearing a pattern meant for shorter guys who wore their trousers up to their nipples.

The 44 looks like I'm wearing something out of my sister's closet

No, he's just a tall guy with a long torso. I've had people insist I'm wearing low rise (which I never have in my life) when I have on high rise Sugar Canes, because I think most people in the hobby (especially on the denim side for some reason) are short.
