Γιατί is in the best translation that we see above. It was not accepted?

Hey Troll, this sentence appears to be missing a μου to me... or is the 'my' already implied in the μου κάνει? As it stands, I'd translate the sentence back into English as 'I am upset because the jacket does not fit me'. General strengthening on web.

That's super strange... In the incubator there is no "my jacket" alternative and it says that we made changes to this sentence 5 months ago! So, there must have been such an alternative but no more... Duolingo's ghosts, it seems...

Good old ghosts! Glad my interpretation was correct! Thanks for looking into it.
