    I just got some shirts from the last Charles Tyrwhitt sale, and they generally fit pretty well everywhere (the collar is a tiny bit looser than I like, but is perfectly acceptable), The one issue I have, is that I can slip my hand out through the cuff without removing the link if I scrunch my hand up.

    Is it possible to have a French cuff tailored, or is this going to be a major issue?

    too large!
    not really fixable.
    the only thing you can do. is put a few stitches in the button hole closer to the edge.
    closing up the buttonhole .
    you could tighten up the cuff by at least 1/2"
    but you will only be able to use a cufflink with a swivel stem.

    The larger the neck size the larger cuff opening.

    Try TM Lewin their cuffs are smaller than CT.

    Hermes has the smallest cuff opening. IIRC about 8 inches around....
