I would not even consider to hire someone who didn't show up in a dark suit, white (or light blue) shirt, conservative tie, and polished leather shoes. Period.
The point is, none of RL's shirts will be offered with variable sleeve length. You were once able to even get the basic polo-player-ornamented shirts (which I don't care for either) with a precise sleeve length. They got rid of that and left the option only on the higher end (now $145 - $175) Regent shirts. Now even these will come in one sleeve length.

OP: are you saying that they will stop doing this going forward? That is correct. They used to have 16-33, 16-34, 16-35, etc. Now they will just have 16 with a single uniform sleeve length. The manager said this is a new decision, and will apply across the board (internet too!). It...

Hadn't been into a Ralph Lauren boutique lately. Stopped in and can say that with the exception of the Purple Label line, RL is truly becoming the Gap... Noticed that they no longer offer variable sleeve lengths on any shirts--even the supposedly higher quality dress shirts that retail for $175. (RLPL never has, but as the shirts are made in Italy, they are Italian sized, in effect--39, 40, 41, etc.) This change was confirmed by the store manager. Also fabrics...

I would say US D (X) = UK F (X-1) as a general rule. This has mostly worked for me.
