    I'm having some trouble getting the correct sleeve length on my jackets and shirts. Either my jacket sleeves are too short, shirts too long or both.

    Where exactly should these two sleeves be positioned in relation to the wrist? Pictures would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks.

    Depending on your height, you want to show about 1/2" of shirt cuff. Your shirt cuff should cover the wrist bone and reach the base of the hand. The jacket sleeves should end at about the wristbone, or a hair beyond.
