Tom Ford dress shirt sleeve length

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Good morning, men.  Quick question.  I bought a Tom Ford dress shirt, and I feel the sleeves are quite long in relation to the chest/shoulders.  This longer length seems to be ubiquitous across the shirts (and maybe jackets) I have come across.

 

Thanks much for any help,

Bill

Sorry, I chopped some of my message.

 

1) Are Tom Ford shirts made to fit long/have more of a bunched look?

2) Would you recommend letting a tailor shorten the sleeves?

 

Thanks again for any help,

Bill

Hey Bill, I haven't heard anyone else comment about it.  Having a tailor shorten them is definitely an option if you're willing to spend the money on it.  If they fit right in the cuff, I wouldn't worry much about them being a bit long (unless they are really bunched)....if you're wearing a jacket.  Proper fit in the cuff should have them fall at the right spot and when the jacket is off, you can roll them up.

I would shorten the sleeves. I only have 1 shirt and I found it wider in the shoulders and less slim. I had to get sleeves shortened too.

if it needs to be shortened by more then an inch, then have the tailor move the sleeve placket.

you should have the shirt laundered once in your usual method, before taking it in for alteration.

Thank you all for your thoughts.  On one hand the cuff does fit great so the extra length is not noticeable with a jacket on; but on the other hand I am getting a fair amount of bunching.  Something to think about.  Regardless, thank you for your help.

Also, I saw a previous thread on this but I am still not clear.  Would a shortening (with placket) require the work of a high level tailor, or can a more run of the mill person perform the service correctly?
