I'm trying to get a sense for whether my sleeves on the dress shirt are too long. My feeling is that they could be a tad bit shorter. Thanks in advance!
I struggle with getting a good fit from trousers with side pockets. I generally wear cotton chinos in the summer but would like an alternative for winter time wear other than jeans cut cords and molekins, neither of which I'm particularly fond of. Given the texture of wool flannel, it seems like an interesting choice for a casual winter trouser.
I have a casual, unstructured blazer made from cotton. It has stitching around the cuffs. I took it to a tailor and he said that, if he were to shorten the sleeves, he'd have to pull the stitching out and you'd be able to see the holes from where the stitching used to be because the material is cotton (as opposed to the traditional wool that most blazers would be made from). Thus, he urged me not to mess with the sleeves.
I'm inclined to trust the guy because he's otherwise a good tailor, but wanted to get a second opinion here. Should I shorten the sleeves? Are the sleeves of a casual blazer supposed to be well-tailored the way you would with a regular blazer or should it be worn "casually" (i.e. untailored)?
This is the blazer in case you guys wanna see it. It's from Club Monaco.
