    Hello all,

    Im new to the forums and I would like to get some advice. I recently had a tailor make me a suit with some fabric I chose, but i found that the sleeves were too long, so im taking around 1/4 of an inch from the sleeve so it can rest at my wristbone and show some cuff when my arms are at rest. But I would like to get some opinions about how does the suit fits me around my arm biceps, if i have too much fabric and I should ask the tailor to take some fabric too or just leave it the way it is. Please keep in mind that im skinny and a very short guy (5´3 - 5´4). Please also keep in mind that here my arm is not at rest but bent on purpose for the pics so I could show some cuff (friend wedding).

    For the ones that care Im from Panama and I get suits made for 160 bucks at a local tailor (without the fabric).


    Here´s another suit I had made that fits me better I believe:


    Thanks a lot!
