Alright, so I just picked up one of the Paul Smith Mainline suits that was on sale on Gilt last week. Just received it in the mail and am quite bemused. I'm trying to decide whether I should return it or not at the moment. It has working buttons, but the sleeves are unusually long - easily 26-26.5 inches, which seems pretty extreme for a 36R suit. Also, the configuration is extremely unusual: I've uploaded some pictures: This length problem is actually apparent in the Gilt photos -- even their model couldn't deal with the sleeves: I'd like to solicit the forum's opinions, particular the tailors here. I know that normally working buttons cannot be adjusted for length, b/c you can't just bring the sleeve right up to the edge of the first working buttonhole. However, I'm contemplating more radical surgery -- would it be possible to literally lop off two inches off the top of the sleeve, cutting off the top two buttons altogether (so that four remain)? The top two buttons are bizarre anyways, one being larger than the others, and one being differently colored -- it's almost as if it's a joke and they are meant to be taken off so that it fits people with normal-length arms who also want a normal button configuration on the sleeves (i.e. four buttons).
