    before and after tailoring
    cleaning up the rippling in the body, a bit more waist suppression and made the jacket not open so much below the buttoning point

    sleeves have working cuff buttons
    i don't think the jacket sleeves are too long... but still the shirt sleeves do not show unless if i tug on them
    i guess i will try with another shirt and see if it's just my shirt or if i need to shorten the sleeve a tiny bit

    but... a question in general
    how many think the shirt sleeve MUST show a bit past the jacket sleeve?

    Showing shirt sleeves is a must for me. I get extremely self-conscious when it doesn't and I'll drag the shirt sleeves out every 5 minutes.

    I like showing 1/4" of cuff past my jacket sleeve. However, I find it far preferable to show less sleeve or even no sleeve, than to show too much sleeve.

    Your jacket sleeves don't look too bad. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the problem were with your shirt, and not your jacket.

    this is very true.

    will definitely try on a different shirt to make sure...
    if it's the jacket ... then i guess back to the tailor it goes

    What's the quality on Gant Rugger suits/jackets? Are the worth the price? From what I can tell they look like they are made in South America.

    I like 1/2" sleeve, so I might be the wrong person to ask.

    I think Doc is the expert on capes but that looks a little too short. Plus boots with a cape? :embar:

    same here....of course you don't want too much, but at least a good 1/4 of an inch is a must for me as well. I'll only wear certain shirts w/ certain jackets if there is a discrepancy w/ the fits so I always have some cuff. btw...like that SC XKxRome0ox

    OK question.... if it's literally impossible to wear a white tie (unless you're a waiter, gangster, or going to an actual white tie affair) why are there so many nice white ties out there? Someone just gave me a Brioni tie as an early X-Mas present...but it's WHITE! I'm like wtf am I supposed to do w/ this? Turn it into a thong/cock cozy to go along w/ my Hermes codpiece? Seriously? Can I "re-purpose" it into anything useful...ideas?

    I recently came across a website called Luxire.com that sells dress shirts. I am interested to know has anyone ever done business with them and if so would you be willing to offer feedback on the quality.
