Many of the NWT sports jackets that I have found on ebay and would have considered buying, had sleeve lengths that were as much as 1" - 1.5" too long for my 25" long arms. Does a tailor shorten a jacket sleeve from the cuff end, or rip it down and shorten it from the shoulder? Â It would seem that the former would be limited to very minor alterations due to proper positioning of sleeve buttons, whereas the latter would seem to be a much more technically involved and costly procedure, if it is done at all. What is the maximum a RTW jacket sleeve can be shortened without adversely affecting its appearance?
