I recently had my first ever cust shirts made for me from a tailor in Vietnam while visiting friends. I had two fittings plus the initial visit and this is how they came back. I know it's my first time and maybe I made some poor suggestions, learning mistakes maybe.

Are these acceptable sleeve lengths? You see that when I raise my arm they basically end up halfway up my forearm! I really don't think these will work with my suit. Is there any way they can be saved? Am I looking at these the wrong way?

The sleeves are too short. They are also too slim, which exacerbates the issue because that causes the sleeve to rise even higher up your forearm when you bend your elbow. They can’t be lengthened. I’d suggest you wear them as casual summer shirts with the sleeves rolled up.

I like my sleeves long enough that with the cuff unbuttoned, the end of the sleeve comes down a couple of inches beyond where my hand meets my wrist.
