    Everyone has their addictions. I admit it, I have a weakness for Charvet. I am lost when ever I go to Paris but I know how to find Place Vendome!

    I saw some RTW Charvet at Saks and Bergdorf and they are truly beautiful shirts. They are cut fuller for the American market (good for me) but when I tried the shirt on, I noticed the cuffs were quite snug. My watch just barely fit under the cuff. Believe me, my wrists are not that big. I have purchased Hilditch and Key RTW shirts and the cuffs width is fine even after many washings.

    I know that sleeves can be shortened but can the cuffs be loosened?

    you could perhaps have the placement of the cuff button re-positioned to allow for a bit more room....

    Yes, very simple alteration, a perfect DIY project.

    You can do the same for the collar, to let out a bit if it's too tight.
