Wouldn't longer sleeve make his arms look shorter? Shorter sleeves might look odd on a hanger, but it matters that they fit the person.
I got a Speedmaster when I was 13 and now at 22 I'm still wearing it.
Quote: Originally Posted by intent I don't think the problem is really with the buttoning point, but I get the feeling that the suit jacket is too long on the bottom half. Maybe it's the photo angle. It makes the wearer seem like the suit is wearing him. It only looks too long because the buttoning point and pockets are too high. It's the fashionable proportions that are giving the suit this effect. If the jacket were shorter it wouldn't cover...
Quote: Originally Posted by amplifiedheat To the contrary, it's not subjective at all. A single-breasted suit should button at the waist, which the narrowest part of the torso. (Finding the waist is a bit more complicated for overweight men.) If your waist is higher than average, it requires a higher button stance. If it is lower than average, it requires a lower button stance. Naturally, the waistband of the trousers should sit at the waist. This is the...

I've edited the picture to see what it would look like with a button...
Quote: Originally Posted by mainy would be better without the pick stitching all over it I agree. The pick stitching is too noticeable. It looks alright, but it would look much better if the button stance were an inch or 2 lower. Most people aren't built for the high button stance that the Benjamin suits have.

But they get the style right and they are well-made. Many of the online tailors don't get the style right and cut them square. Bond's cuffs are all curves. I submitted my own design to moderntailor.com to rectify this, and now they have added the proper turnback cuff to their...
