I'm trying to think about the relative shirt-suit sleeve lengths! If you are standing up both should be (almost) fully extended. In this situation I think I barely show 1/2 inch of cuff. If this is the case, my suit sleeve definitely covers the cufflinks. I fail to see how cufflinks showing when standing straight fails to imply that either the suit sleeve is too short or the shirt sleeve is too long (in which case it should be over part of your palm?!).
I know quite a few members on this forum have more experience on than me in sartorial matters - Any thoughts?
Also with arms bent at 90 degrees I would need 2-3 inches of cuff showing to expose the entire cufflink. At most I show 1-2 to 3/4 of the cufflink with arms bent.
BTW, my shirt sleeves end at my wrist and my suit sleeves just above (when standing straight).
