Well, I suppose that it's a hybrid/adaptation. The sleeves could always be rolled up a bit to shorten them. You're right when you say that the traditional sleeves are shorter, and they are also cut without cuffs. If someone's going to wear an "aizome" (indigo-dyed) noragi, then perhaps they should go the whole hog and wear a pair of jika-tabi with their pants tucked in to them for the ultimate streetwear outfit!
