I have a tailor that does most of my work but never had to have sleeves done before plus theres a couple shirts that need to be taken in on the sides anyways, I'll ask the cost for sleeves.
Will be worth a looksee to see if there is anything I like in the lot and make a judgement call based on how much work would have to be done I suppose and if there are any patterns/colors I like. I have so much trouble finding the slim type of shirts I want in the simple solids stripes that I prefer.
I feel you on this... I've pretty much given up on it. Though if I were you I would give RL Custom-Fit 15.5"/M a try. I recently found a bunch of them on sale at a department store (Marshall Fields) for $20-40, and they retail for ~$70. If you go to a Polo outlet store they will cost even less I'm sure or they will have a 2 for $80 deal or something like that. They fit me well in the waist although the chest and the arms are a bit big - they will probably fit you well though since you are probably a little bigger than me.
They are single needle stitched, but the buttons are plastic and the cuffs have 2 buttons for adjusting sleeve length. You can just take one of the buttons off though if you don't like this look.
