I always prefer to show some cuff, and this was discussed at length with Joe. All my shirts are from NSM and uniformly show between 1/4-1/2 inches with my NSM coats. Joe's thinking is that since the armholes of his coat are cut a bit higher, that this is pulling up my shirting under the arm. I can either ask Mina for shirts with an additional 1cm sleeve length to wear with my C&M stuff, or I'm thinking to ask Joe to make up a few shirts. All my NSM shirts are soft-collared, so perhaps it makes sense to go with a more formal collar to maintain a similar aesthetic to the C&M gear. Or I can ask Joe to shorten sleeves a touch???
Along those lines, any suggestions for top shirt makers in London? I'm sure there must be threads, but no time to slog through at the moment.

C&M have a wonderful silhouette, and I've never seen a suit from them that isn't amazing, but I'm interested to know whether they are good at "building" that shape or whether you really have a 8"-10" drop?
I can't work out whether all their customers are models or they can make anyone look like an Olympian!
5'10" 165 lbs. I'm no gym rat but I try to stay in reasonable shape. And my true drop is more like 6"-7". I only have two data points with SR, but with this limited experience I can say that Joe and Michael are to be credited with the shape build.
