In the end it’s your jacket and you’re paying them to get it the way you want it.

 

This is also what surprised me (here in Denmark): Both the salesman and the unrelated (alteration) tailor wanted the sleeve to be pretty long. So I see having them properly shortened as a way to stand out positively. I just hope it will not end up as standing out negatively, if everyone else perhaps shows no shift cuff! (I'm starting a job at a consulting firm next month).

 

By the way, my tailor's reason for not shortening further was that when I extend my arms forward, I will show plenty of cuff. But I think it's much better to show a little cuff at rest and then plenty plus that little extra bit when extending my arms fully forward.

First off all, your shirt sleeves have to fit right. If all of your shirts have different sleeve lengths and cuff sizes, you're jacket sleeves will never look right. All your shirt sleeves need to end at the smallest part of your wrist, and your jacket sleeves 1 cm above that. Whenever you try on a new jacket, always wear your best fitting shirt.

Can anyone tell me what the US size on this pair of Edward Green Beaulieus is? The 9/9.5E is confusing me. Thanks.

The first number is the UK size; the second is the US size.

Thank you. That's what I was told, but wanted to double check. I appreciate the quick response.

Thanks. As I'm looking into this, I realize two things:

1) My arms have slightly different lengths! (Probably because I broke my collar bone as a kid.)

2) To be able to access my watch without unbuttoning the cuff, I need the cuff to be loose enough that it will look more like the top right part of my previous pic, even though it is a fairly thin Skagen watch.

What do you think to the fit of this jacket?

You have to button it up.

Are Gitman brothers shirts made for a menswear store considered the same quality as their normal shirts? I found a couple from a now closed store Roger Stevens and they seem to be pretty nice.

What are my options for a dress shoe when I walk 20-30 minutes a day to and from work?

Are wooden soles pointless? Should I get rubber heeled shoes? Do high end makers offer these types of shoes, or should I consult a cobbler?

I think you mean leather soles. Both should be fine. Really just depends on your comfort level.

He looks like Sean Connery in his profile picture.

I have a pair of trousers a little too tight in the thigh and seat.  It causes the pockets to flair.  Would getting a tailor to let out the waist help at all or do I have to just get used to them being on the tighter side.

Are they tight in the waist as well? You could get him to just let out the seat a touch. There should be enough extra fabric there to give you a little more space.
