Hello, all. First post (yes, Times) and I'll get right to it. I bought a button down Missoni dress shirt with which I am absolutely in love at Filene's Basement the other day. Besides being beautiful, it was a steal. The problem is that the sleeves are too long and are billowing out on me. This is my first experience buying a shirt on the European size system, and I got a 41. I don't know my exact measurements, but I'd guess I'm about a 16/33.5. As far as I can tell, however, if you're going to get a 16 neck, you have to just pick the size 41 and hope that the sleeves fit you. I also bought a size 41 shirt by Basile which fits me quite nicely. So my question is: is it possible to have the shirt altered by shortening the sleeves a bit? If not, what can I do if the neck size is right but the sleeves are too long? I love this shirt too much to return it. Thanks for all your help...
