Just a quick question about suits/ blazers and the sleeves.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to know from the experts how the sleeves are supposed to fit around your arm, especially the elbow. What Im getting at is when your arm naturally bends while standing straight, should you have a jacket that shows no wrinkles at the elbow, or is it pretty normal for most blazers and sport coats to have that natural bend in the elbow look? Its hard to explain when I don't plan on posting a picture, but thanks!

If the fit is perfect there should be no wrinkling anywhere down the sleeve. It is rare than anything OTR will fit this will though, usually the sleeve pitch will not be quite right causing creasing at the upper back sleeve. There will always be some curve built into the sleeve though, which should follow the natural curve of the arm at rest, and should prevent there being too much creasing at the elbow level.
