Stanley was wearing a Stark on the previous page. cyc had replied to renenavate with what Stanley was wearing, but rennavate was quoting a post of Stanley quoting xhale who was wearing a fisherman patch[1].gif

ok, while i do like this fit, even though i dont really quite "get" a lot of it, i only ask one thing explained.

the cuffs. i know it has been mentioned, but even the suggested amounts to be shortened would leave it quite long, at least from an MC perspective. i have not been in this thread very long, but i dont recall seeing any other SC sleeves that long.

so, i guess my question is, what is the SWD belief/groupthink/accepted practice/range about cuff length on SCs?

thanks.

one note about shortening a sleeve from the shoulder. when a jacket is made, the extra length that is put in by the manufacturer to account for different arm lengths, is added at the end. even if the tailor can get the armhole right, it can really throw off the pitch of the sleeve in regards to the elbow.

so even if the length is right after the alteration, and it looks good, it can be very uncomfortable to wear if the curvature of the jacket sleeve is no longer matches up with the curve of your arm/elbow.

I don't think sleeve pitch is particularly much of a concern with a textured cotton blazer.

i think you are wrong. no jacket sleeve, afaik, is 100% straight. if the "elbow" of the jacket ends up sitting by your bicep, you will not be comfortable.

my point was that one of the biggest concerns with sleeve pitch is having a jacket sleeve that lies flat - which isn't as much of a concern with a jacket that's made of cotton and thus is constantly wrinkled anyway. obviously there's a risk of constricting your arm if you shorten the sleeve too much from the shoulder (which is limited by armhole constraints anyway), but I don't think the inch or so he needs is going to be a deal breaker. he shouldn't get the sleeve altered to a business appropriate length, but just so it doesn't cover his hand.

i hear, but you never know how that inch or so will play out. im just sayin its something to take into consideration, and mention to the tailor before you do anything, so you dont fuxxor up a perfectly good jacket.

better to recut the cuff than take up from the shoulder. Way too risky.

There's not really an specific accepted practise, but IME casual jackets feel more natural when they end around the first knuckle of the thumb. That goes for leather jackets, streetwear blazers, and outerwear.

For more conceptual pieces, anything goes depending on how it's designed.

Agreed.

Since it's a casual jacket, it's better to ask for a "cut job: - see pic:

Only use this option as a last resort but on an SC its not the end of the world for an otherwise good jacket.

honestly i've ruined streetwear blazers by taking them up just a couple of inches from the shoulder.

I'll always go for the cut job over taking them up from the shoulder from now on.
