Hi guys, I recently purchased a navy borrelli blazer that is simply beautiful, however the sleeves are are about half an inch too long. I was taking it to get it tailored when my tailor told me that she would have to take the stitching by the buttons out and resew the buttons further upward to shorten the sleeve and not have it look like the buttons are right at the edge. However once she does that then she cannot resew the button stitching. Now how do you guys feel about this, should I go ahead and shorten it and take out the stitching or should I just leave it to be a tad long? I personally enjoy the look of the buttonhole, but im not sure if this detail is worth having my sleeves be too long.
