I know I can ask my tailor this but it's Saturday night and he's closed Sunday and Monday. I have noticed that my casual linen shirts that I like to wear outside are all too long in the body. I was looking at a photo on "The Sartorialist" where Scott commented that the guy's linen shirt fit perfect with the body length right at the wrist. He noted that he was going to take the photo to his tailor to have his shirts shortened. Since he's only about 5' 6" his must really run long! Going to the wrist line makes mine (mostly RRL and J. Crew) about three inches too long. Seems like hemming them might be a hassle as the tailor would need to contour the cut to correspond to the curve of the hem. Is this readily doable? Any of you guys regularly do this?
