    The fellow who runs the ebay store "The World's Finest" is going to start selling a whole load of Borrelli products on his other auction site. These won't be sold through ebay. Here's the email he sent me in response to an inquiry about a Borrelli shirt in his store:

    I am trying to decide between a pointed collar Borrelli and a button down Barba on his site... [​IMG]

    All of these shirts have sleeves that are too long. Is it possible to get them adjusted to be shorter?

    Absolutely. Any competent alterations tailor can do it. I've had it done on several shirts.

    Alias,

    Just about all ready-to-wear (but high end) shirts in the US have sleeves that are far too long. That way, the stores only need to worry about neck size; they can be assured that they will never lose a sale because the sleeves are too short.

    Of course, the downside is that just about every RTW shirt needs to be altered to have the sleeves shorted.

    in some brands it is VERY hard to find long enough sleeves... Thomas Pink, Zegna, Boss being some. I wear a 17x36 in most shirts and almost all with that neck size are 34, 35, or 34/35.
