    Of course you disagree if the sleeves fits you without having the sleeves taken up too much. So tell me, what should I do when I need to take up the sleeves 2-4 centimeter?

    No, they carry 32 in some models. Just use the size dropdown on their website to check.

    While the Havana is slimmer in the arms, I found that it was not as slim as the Washington around the waist area.

    Do you also have to get the body of the suit taken up? 2-4 cm in the arms means you're probably also going to have to alter the body, otherwise you'll throw the balance off.

    If this kind of major work is required, maybe MTM is the better route? Or another brand?

    Not at all, since their suits and blazers lenght tends to be quite spot on for me, as they by standard are quite short. Functional buttonholes are highly unpractical and makes shortening the sleeves much more difficult.

    Have you tried their S size (eg: 38S instead of 38R)? How tall are you?

    For reference here's an unaltered 38R Havana.

    In this photo I'm 6'1" ~165lbs.

    do all suits come w/functioning cuffs? I worry because on of my arms is approx 1/2" longer than the other, and I might want to have sleeves shortened. also, at 5'10" 165lbs, I hope the classic fit is forgiving enough for my average size (note: I'm probably actually thinner than average for an america, esp in West Texas, but thin euro cuts I cannot pull off, nor do I want to, as I need very traditional cuts in my profession---lawyering)

    Thanks!

    I am 5'7 feet. Size 38S (size 24) is way too wide and need so much slimming in the sides that it won't look good. 46 is too tight, 48 fits nice, but sadly the sleeves are too long and have functional buttonholes.

    Shortening from the shoulder is like playing Bingo, can turn out bad. Also, there is not one tailor in my whole country that would be able to shorten it from the shoulder with a good result.

    Then is sounds like you either have buttonholes very close to the end of the sleeve, or this brand doesn't work. Tis the problem with functional as you know.

    I'm 5'7 too.

    Have you tried every cut? Inc washington and Havana?

    I'm obviously fatter than you if the 24 is way too wide. I didn't think it was much wider than the 48, when I tried them on.

    I have a 24 double breasted suit, but I never managed to make it slim enough without the fabric at the back started to pull/crease. Might have more success with a two button blazer maybe?
