None of the aforementioned icons ever wore skinny sleeves--in fact, their sleeves were quite full--yet contemporary eyes seem to ignore that anomoly in their glowing appraisals.

Yeah, these are really fat......

Is there any Lycra in Astaire's sleeves' fabric?

I think that the difference is that the very slim sleeves are more acceptable in conservative environments these days because they're in vogue. I think that Agnelli and maybe even Astaire took the look to the furthest extreme that they could all those decades ago; any slimmer and it would have appeared that their suits were too small.

In this way, I feel that although the sleeves are different, they act as equivalents (for their time periods).

Those are still fuller; they're simply worn by men with thin arms.

I beg to differ. Astaire's sleeves looks pretty much on par with the aforementioned photo.

No, he just likes his sleeves Rubinesque.

I'm not so sure, but black and white tie should certainly be worn with slimmer sleeves like Astaire's. In any case, I prefer slimmer sleeves anyway. I personally think that they look better than the Rubinacci sleeves.

Oh, don't forget to Rubinesque(â„¢).

Look how his suit sleeve hugs his shirt cuff- there is no space between them. Hedi would be pleased.

If he's thin or not has nothing to do with the question at hand. I was referring to the fullness of the sleeves in regard to the size of his arms. The ratio seems to be pretty much equal, which was my intended comment.

Foo was right about the sleeves being incorrect on the Satorialist pic. I think he failed to articulate it correctly. The imbalance is that the torso of the check was much large than the sleeves and pants. With the Astaire picture the sleeves are skinny, but he is also a very skinny man. The torso and sleeves are proportional to each other on the Astaire picture.
