Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2445

I just want to say thanks for buying size 3. Will be picking some stuff up from you guys shortly :)

I know this has been discussed a lot but: anyone have experience shortening the sleeves from the shoulder on a blazer? I got a margiela blazer with an absolutely killer cut and fabric but the sleeves are a good 2 inches too long.  Functional cuffs.

There's people that know more than I do but generally shortening anything from the shoulder is a big and complicated job and you should only bring it to a tailor that you trust. In your case, I don't think it's even possible since 2 inches is a lot and once you cut off 2 inches from the top the openings don't match anymore.

And even if you do find a tailor who thinks they can do it be prepared to pay a ton of money.

A little too much "goodfellas" vibe for my taste.

Hm.  They're nearly hitting my knuckles :/.  Regis or whoever - is there any way on sight to tell which of the MMM blazers are cut for 6 foot 4" dudes and which aren't?

 

I absolutely love this blazer though, the cut and fabric is perfect.  I was also considering that thing where they kinda cut around the buttons to move the whole thing up a couple inches.

 

Edit: also considering this, can't decide if it looks like crap:

One last thing - the final buttonhole isn't cut, so I think it can just be removed, reducing the amount I'd need to move the sleeve up somewhat.

You're welcome!  Don't sleep if there's something you want - we only have 1 piece in sz 3 for all the SS items

KJ, if they're that long, can you just shorten normally and give up the functional cuffs?

No, they're not that bad. If i did that the cut would be right at the first buttonhole. Here's a pic I snapped this morning before I left:
