Wow, this forum never ceases to amaze me. Thanks for all of your astute observations, and please keep them coming. My right arm is indeed longer than my left, by less than .5". Or at least that's what my golf club fitter told me. It probably looks longer by more, but as I mentioned earlier, these RTW cuffs are too large and the perceived length descrepency is exasterbated because I wear a rather large chronograph on my left wrist. Also, none of my pants or belts fit me anymore at the waist. As a student with lots of free time and a strong interest in triathlon, I've taken up working out up to 20 hours per week, and I've lost inches off my waistline. (By the way, finding a nice belt discounted is no easy task.) I'm a little hesitant to have my pants taken in, because I'm about to start working full-time(+) and anticipate gaining a few pounds again. In any case, as soon as I get a new belt, the pants will sit a little higher on my waist, maybe .5-1.0" higher. As far as the coat not settling on my shoulders properly, it might be because my build. I used to swim and play water polo competitively, so vestiges of muscle development on my upper back might have something to do with it. I'll make a note of it and mention the fit to my tailor. I'm a little torn on the issue of skirt length. I'll probably leave it as is, but I'll think about it a bit more. Someone had commented on button placement, could you please elaborate? I would also like to hear critisms regarding the silhouette. As in, do the shoulders and chest suit my build? Would you recommend any other shapes/styles for me?
