Does anyone know the sleeve lengths that correspond to the dress shirts that are sized by neck measurement only? I called customer service, and she responded with the measurements for "large" "extra large", etc. I'm looking for measurements for the 16.5 and 17 sized shirts.

I decided to give one of the stores a call. A gentleman, whose name escapes me now, at the Atlanta store said that 16.5 comes with a sleeve that is "about 35 and half" and 17 comes with a 36 sleeve.

When the economy tanked, RL decided to cut inventory by eliminating the sleeve length. Therefore, it is now more of a generic sizing. For example, if you are a 15 neck, a coordinating sleeve length would be 32-33 sleeve length. Just an FYI, they are cut to have a little extra fabric in the arms and usually have to be hemmed. If you live near a RL store, this is done for free if you buy the shirt in the store, if its your own goods I believe it ranges from $12-15 to hem.
