TM Lewin / van Laack sleeve length?

Hi everyone,

I'm owning a perfectly fitting Van Laack ROYAL shirt (slim fit) with the following measurements (as printed on that little tag inside the shirt):

Collar: 15.7" (or 40cm)
Sleeve length: 26.8" (or 68cm).

Note: I'm 6'5" and slim, long arms.


Now, the sleeve length (27 inches) seems rather strange to me. I'm about to order a few shirts from TM Lewin (UK) and on their website I find a sleeve length range from 33 to 38 inches only. So apparently the way of measuring is different.

Does someone know about the right conversion for this then? Which is the appropriate sleeve length in inches for UK shirts if I have a 68cm sleeve length in German shirts?

Thanks for you help!

Regards
Paul

Dear Sebastian,

thanks for your help. Of course you were right, the method of measuring differs. I eventually ordered a 36" sleeve length at TM Lewin and the length is quite alright for me (could half an inch longer, but TM Lewin doesn't sell any 38" sleeve lenghts for the slim fit line).

Of course the Van Laack (Royal, 130 Euros) is a better shirt in many aspects but I can buy about 6 and a half TM Lewin shirts for that amount right now
