    Ordering my first suit, I've done a few measurements of my sleeve but the number I get (37.5 inches) starting from the center of the back of my neck, then to my shoulder, then down to my resting hand is sooo much longer than even longest sleeve lengths listed on the S&M site.

    If I just measure from my shoulder to a bit in to my hand it's 29 inches which is still very long compared to the measurements listed on the site.

    The absolute longest sleeve length I see on the site is the 48L at.. 27.8 inches, but all the other measurements of that suit would dwarf me.

    I'm 6 feet and 155 pounds. Every other measurement I did made sense but the sleeve length seems so far off.

    Chest: 37 1/2
    Waist: 32 1/4
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Sleeve: 37 1/2...?

    Any help? I must be missing something obvious here lol

    The sleeve measurements on the website is from the shoulder seam.

    Or the rotator cuff of your shoulder. The part where the shoulder meets the arm.

    The shirts are still made by a single tailor on a single machine from start to finish. The shirts do not go though a typical assembly line. The sewing machine is considered a tool. This type of production requires a very highly skilled worker to make. In a typical chain system, many operations have been highly automated and no longer require the steady hand of a skilled tailor to execute.

    Hand "sewn" is a different process altogether. Something that 100 Hands (Also in India I might add, lol) does extremely well.
