    I got me a new navy blue suit form Cesare Attolini.

    I work as a lawyer in Sweden and I spend most of my days in SC and odd trousers- combos.
    I rarely use suits unless in court and for special meetings.
    From a CBD perspective - would you keep the lenght of the arm slightly longer compared to a sports coat and thus show less shirt?

    As a suit specialist, I always recommend my customers purchasing CBD to only show the cuffs slightly. I'd recommend 1 cm - 1.5 cm.
    If you get the sleeve tailored shorter than that, then it's not gonna be pretty when you do simple activity :)
