    Have any of you every gotten shirts from Harvie and Hudson whose sleeves are cut on a slight bias?

    On most shirts, when a sleeve is laid flat (as when ironing the sleeve) the grain of the fabric or the stripes will follow the crease along the top of the sleeve, meeting in a symetrical chevron along the seam. On some (but not all) Harvie and Hudson shirts I have the grain of the fabric or the stripes do not follow the top crease, but rather follow the seam that goes the length of the sleeve - at least the front of the sleeve does. That is, if you were to look along the seam that goes the length of the sleeve, on one side the stripes would be parallel to that seam.

    If you have never seen this I'm sure my description isn't very clear. If you have seen this, what do you suppose is the purpose?
