i know this seems very intermediate, but i've decided to wear a French Cuff shirt for an event tomorrow evening. My tailor said the sleeves looked fine, but i'm uncomfortable, because the sleeves seem to be kinda long.

the bottom of the cuff (when folded and cuffed) ends up slightly above the V of my thumb and index finger.

any suggestions? or photos?

or is it just me having to get used to a longer sleeve?
thanks!

Same question but for barrel cuffs. I have a big neck (17 / 43) in the past have bought 33 sleeve length in a U.S. shirt. Standard sleeve length for a 43 European shirt is 34-35, does not look bad but wondering exactly where the sleeve should be? Thanks.
