I ask because I like to be able to leave this button done up for tension for the warm/busy/dirty occasions at work where I have to roll up my sleeves... if the circumference of the sleeve at this point is too large, even by a small amount, it just slides down and I have to roll the sleeve multiple times, which I don't like doing.
So has anyone ever requested this extra measurement? I was thinking that on my next shirt I might try...
Zap them an e-mail. I provided the measurements of where I wanted my second button placed, as I like a very high second button to wear an open collar but still not show chest, and they measured it to a T. I'd imagine you should be more than able to provide arm circumference measurements.
Heck - one of our very own members designed the schematics for their round cut portofino!
