I tried steaming them and ironing them lightly but without any major effect.

Q: What's the deal with two buttons on barrel cuffs? I think it looks strange, the one normal button and the one next to it for guys with extremely skinny wrists or something. I don't like the look of the second button so I cut it off all my dress shirts. Is this ok?

Depends on what you want, what you need them for, and your budget. The bottom of the high end shoe range is mainline Allen Edmonds, priced at $300 retail, though they can somewhat easily be found cheaper. They, and other manufacturers, have lots of different styles to offer.

I recently bought a SC off the B&S that has working cuffs (the seller didn't mention this fact.) Love the jacket, but the sleeves are about an inch too short for my monkey arms.

I've heard on this board that with working cuffs, a tailor needs to let the sleeves out from the shoulder. Has anyone had this done? How much am I looking at?

It's shorting that's more the problem. If there is material and you don't mind the buttons being an inch further from the end I think the tailor can manage.

Not quite. It's actually shorter-arm button, longer-arm button. You'll notice that they only tend to show up on shirts whose sleeves are sized to every other inch, rather than every inch.

Is it possible to get a (cotton, silk, cashmere blend) blazer taken in from a 58 inch chest to a 42 inch chest? Would any professional tailor even bother with a request like that? If so, how much should i expect to pay?

Probably, but the problem is that just about everything else would need to be adjusted as well. The 58 inch chest blazer is also cut fuller in the arms and the waist. It has a different button stance because of the difference in size. The lapels will likely need to be readjusted. It's entirely possible the lining and canvassing will need to be separately removed, cut, and reassembled. Basically you're taking some fabric into the tailor and asking him/her to build you a brand new coat.

Unless the material is really nice or there's some sentimental value involved, I would recommend against such drastic surgery.

Thanks for the info. I only have MTM shirts and got the watch explanation. Made the mistake of ordering it on the first shirt. Didn't like it much either.

Generally speaking, the Hickey Freeman suits at a typical NM Last Call are what, Half Canvas?
