Yea - I should have been more specific I guess, but if you're comparing my situation to trying on pants without shoes thats a pretty big reach. I had him measure the shirts and pin them to the length I wanted. Like I said, I figured he would hem them the same as the test shirt as thats the whole point of the "prototype" test shirt.

They're not arbitrary restrictions. I have never heard of anyone hemming a shirt and then returning to the manufacturer when the shirt doesn't come out the way they had hoped. I get that BrooksBrothers is a huge chain and can afford to refund its customers, but did not imagine they would refund an altered shirt. Have you actually done this?

Unfortunately I wear APC NS jeans and even for my work pants (mainly chinos and wool trousers) I would not consider the rise very high.

Bummer. I agree with someone's comment earlier about trying on every shirt for alteration. Consider the fact that the armscye may sit higher or lower and while two shirts might have the same side seam measurement, the seam will sit higher or lower in comparison to the other.
