I recently ordered a few suits from Samuelsohn, some of which are MTM. I am curious about the placement of the working surgeon cuffs. The button nearest the sleeve's end measures about an inch or an inch and a quarter from the sleeve's end. Alan Flusser's "Dressing the Man" p. 90. mentions that surgeon cuffs are supposed to be placed no more than 3/4 inch from the sleeve's end. Is this something to be concerned about or I'm I being anal?
I am getting a MTM three piece suit by Samuelsohn with fabric from Holland and Sherry from the UK. The fabric I have chosen is a navy blue pinstripe.

Did you ultimately get your briefcase? Where do you recommend I shop?
I am thinking about Swaine Adeney Brigg's Bond case. My main concern is the size. I am 160lbs. 5'10 with a small/medium frame. Do you think the 4.5 inch is too big? While SAB does make the attaché in 3.5, I find that too small. What are your thoughts on attaché sizes? I find that 4inches is perfect in terms of aesthetics and practicality.
I am in the market for a new attaché. While I love the Vuitton President Classeur in Taiga or Epi, I don't care for the price. I am thinking about Swaine Adeney Brigg's Bond case.
