i think the issue is less "whose sleeves are skinnier?" than "on whom do skinny sleeves look better?"
also, in the photos above isn't what astaire is wearing a costume, to some degree?

Let me second BEAMS, especially the BEAMS+ boutiques, which carry a lot of stuff produced in collaboration with classic US makers (including Alden, Woolrich, Lee, etc.). Also keep an eye out for great New Balance models unavailable in the US; you can find them at small shops in Shibuya and Daikanyama, as well as in J Press and other brands' boutiques within the high-end department stores.
just wanted to pop in and commiserate. i've been shopping in vain for a solid blue 36R (I'm 5'7", 135). are there *really* so few customers in these sizes?
I am facing the same decision. I recently bought a pair of flat-front, slightly narrow, pin-cord trousers (on VERY deep discount). I am inclined not to get cuffs. I know cuffs are popular here on all sorts of pants (or that cuff proponents are more vocal); why? Do you all think it visually lengthens the leg? That the additional weight gives a better line to the pant-leg? That the sartorial detail adds elegance?
