Good people of Styleforum, can you recommend RTW brands for suits that, as the title says, have slightly shorter sleeves than usual on average? My arms being relatively short, I have to shorten the sleeves on every jacket that I get to an ideal length of about 59cm. The problem is that since a few months ago there are no proper tailors in my town that do corrections, just ones that make MTM and bespoke clothing. That means that I can only turn to the alteration stores, which shouldn't be a problem for such a minor intervention, but none of them (and I called about a dozen) have the specialized machine that can make fake buttonholes. Since the sleeves are usually shortened so much that buttons have to be moved, I ended up without buttonholes a few times. Other than asking for shortening from the sleeve head, which I'd rather avoid, my only option is buying something that already comes shorter than usual. I wear a size 36/38, the jacket length ideally around 74cm. So, are there any such brands?
