In other words, aside from providing an ease of slipping in and out of the coat, are sleeve linings necessary to give the sleeve some shape?
Beyond slipping it on and off I haven't worn it yet but I plan to tomorrow.

They are higher than he would normally make but not SR high. Yes, pleated.

I don't mind the pleating for anything.

This can be a problem and yes it's sort of annoying. Worse than sleeve lining, IMO, is canvas. Dark grays and blues should have a black canvas. White canvas shows through and makes the coats look shimmery.
