I went to Brookes Brothers today to try on their "Slim Fit" line. (Didn't seem very slim to me, but I digress.) Anyway, the salesman measured me and said I was a 34" sleeve size. When I tried the shirt on, it seemed that the cuff pulled way too far (well over an inch) behind my wrist as a bent my arm. The salesman said it was fine, but it didn't seem right to me. He measured me with my arm hanging straight down. I was always under the impression that one was measured with his arm bent, hand on the waist with the elbow close to a 90 degree angle. I'm I right about this? Am I just crazy? Sorry for the long post, but I was just wondering.
