    I wear a rather large, sport watch. Now, I love the watch, however, it can be a bit cumbersome, especially when it doesn't fit under my shirt cuff: it tends to push the cuff up my wrist so the cuff doesn't show under a jacket. I find this very annoying.

    Then, I thought, maybe I'll get the cuff on my left wrist a bit bigger next time I get a shirt made.

    Anyway - am I the only one with this issue? Can anyone think of drawbacks to my plan?

    It's a perfectly reasonable solution. In fact, it's typical of bespoke shirts - I was at a local store getting the details on their custom shirts, and that detail (accomodating a large watch) was mentioned. If a good tailor can hide droopy shoulders, a fat butt, or a too-stiff posture, why not tailor to a watch? [​IMG]

    You always measure the cuffs with your watch on. However, remember to wear your dress watch when measuring for a dress shirt, and your sport watch when measuring for a sport shirt. Once it is done, it cannot be redone.

    I get my left cuff a half inch bigger. It's really just SOP for custom shirts.
