Suit sleeve length

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just had my suit jacket tailored and the shirt cuff can't be seen until I bend my elbow.

After searching around I continue to read that 1/4-1/2" of shirt cuff should be visible. Is this true or does it even matter?

In this picture who has the better fitting suit (not meant to start any political posts, it just shows both styles):

Current US politicians are hardly any pillars of style to emulate. In my book you should show at least half an inch when standing straight, provided your shirt sleeve length fits you in the first place.

Does it matter in the real world? Of course not, but I find it to be one of of the first things you notice if you care about clothes.
