Unique to linen and Harris Tweed the cloth width, 145cms, is posted with the style number. Usually/sometimes the 6 ounce cloth is a single width cloth of 75CMS width.

Shortening sleeves at the hem is relatively simple and straight forward. If they did this poorly would have wanted to correct this before attempting to shorten form the top. To shorten sleeves at the top requires experience to know how to trim the sleeves and shape them to the armhole as well as experience to attach them well. If they don't know how to set sleeves you have all sorts of issues. If the sleeve has been cut from the top you can't go back to the way it was, you...
The lining is a plus but the benefits aren't always obviously discernable. It contributes to long term wear as a layer between the cloth and your body. The lining is sewn into the inseam, outseam and the top waist and held to the cloth when overcast with a serger. The lining is open at the knee. I
