For a small/medium-sized watch, how much bigger should the cuff measurement be? Just started wearing watches casually and interested in also wearing a watch when wearing a suit or at least a dress shirt. I'm going to be getting some shirts in my exact measurements and wasn't sure what to do about wearing a watch. They say to measure your wrist with 1 finger underneath... obviously 1 finger is not a watch. So how much more should you expect? And then what about the...
Speaking of the watch... should it go underneath the cuff than? If so, a big watch would require a pretty large cuff. Too large I'd think, right? I mean, you are suppose to go by a finger or so underneath the cuff... a watch would be a few fingers.
Ah okay, thanks... think I'll do that with the shirts I got. I've also though been looking at: tailorstore.com because it was mentioned above. It seems like the website is far better than jantzen's. It is also just 40 bucks for a shirt made to my measurements... and they asked for more measurements as well. Anyone use this site? It also says 1-2 weeks shipping, better than that jantzen wiki page has for them. Plus, it's nice that I can see the fabric on an...
Alright, thanks. With regards to tailoring the length for instance... the shirts are not straight. They can still tailor fine along the same design of the bottom end at a dry cleaner tailor? That's the main problem for me with casual shirts. Some a tad long. And the only reason I'm tempted, as of yet, to buy something elsewhere is because other than getting a shirt already measured for me, most shirts don't fit. Gap shirts are actually shorter than the rest and...
Not sure if I bought them like this or they slowly got like this, but anyone know how to tighten up the wrist section of a thermal? Hell, whole forearm area. It's like I'd need giant forearms/wrists, lol... the shirt is nearly as wide at my wrists as it is at the top of my forearms. Fits well on my chest/upper arms though. Actually fits really well everywhere else but my wrist/lower forearm. Maybe I rolled it up or something to many times and it stretched? Bleh... not...
Alright... recently bought some button downs that I like the style of and fit me well around shoulders and body, but are too long. I compare them to other sites lengths and stuff and it seems these are as short as they are gonna even get (27-28" inches it says). But being short... they are still too long untucked. And I have other shirts I've washed before and they fit fine (from the Gap, as are these new clothes), maybe a tad long on sleeves/length, but that being an...

Or any shirts in general really, but for dress shirts, should you expect the sleeves to shrink up to an inch? Say you were wearing one casually (and it'd be untucked), would the length shrink up to an inch? 2? I guess it depends on material also? Say 100% cotton. Just curious since it'll probably help with sizing in the future.

http://stevenalan.com/shop/customer/...18208&cat=1813 See where that goes on the zipper? I guess it depends on the jeans, but that's roughly where my Gap shirts go to. Is that a decent length? It seems a TAD long, like maybe an inch or two, but it's mainly because the front of Gap dress shirts are cut a bit long in front. They curve up and the side/back ends up looking good... just some of the Gap shirts aren't cut very straight in front so are longish. The...
