Sleeve length of the jacket or shirt the issue?

Ok, so I am a novice when it comes to style, but online I have read different opinions of what is the "correct length" of this or that. I had my suit tailored and I believe the jacket arm length is too long. I measured and from my shirt length from my nape to my wrist bone is 32.5" (shirt I am wearing in the picture is a 32-33). I did try a 34-35 and even though it show the cuff while relaxed, with the jacket off you could tell there was extra material in the arms. Look wise the 32-33 looks good without the jacket. So, I am wondering do I need to have the jacket length shortened just a bit to show the cuff while relaxed?


Oh, and if you are wondering, those are not the suit pants, those are just some basketball shorts that happened to to be grey as well.
