SC and suit cuffs?
Yes! Always fully closed.
IST - are the pants blue, green, or grey? I seriously can't tell between the 3.
Just saw this, sorry for the delay. These are LVC 1967 505s. One soak and one wash (after getting sewage and seawater on them bailing out a pals house.
Yep, that's a pretty good reason to wash them.
do not agree.
What if you have congenitally loose shoulder ligaments that cause your arms to shorten and lengthen regularly? Then functional cuffs, while nice, do not work quite as well.
thank g-d, i have not been stricken with that condition.
It sucks quite a bit.
you have this?
After some of that nasty sewage water that floated in from the storm, I think I would likely just write off the jeans and burn them. That shit's nasty. Pun intended.
If you have stretched ligaments, how does your arm lengthen and shorten?
Unless you are referring to subluxation, full or partial, but I don't think you wear your jacket with it out, would you?
I do indeed. The common term for it is an unstable shoulder, and I happen to have two of them.
As I have been told, subluxation (in my case full anterior subluxation of both shoulders) is the symptom which can lead to a diagnosis of unstable shoulder. If the rotator cuff and surrounding muscles are not properly strengthened and maintained, as they slack, the weight of the arm in the socket pulls and continues to stretch the ligaments - at least as far as I understand it. However, t is entirely possible to manage the condition using what boils down to constant physical therapy and mindfullness. I do about three hundred reps of different shoulder/upper arm/pec exercises every day - really every other day because that gets really painful after a while - to try and keep the muscles properly in shape to support my arms in my sockets and when ever I have to lift things try to make sure that I am mindful of how my shoulders are situated.
My point is that if your shoulder does not sublux, the length of arm measured from shoulder to wrist does not change.
Obviously, if it goes out, then the length will.
So, I am wondering if you are worried about the different arm lengths in your jacket because you will wear it with and without a sublux(of any degree).
Otherwise, the issue does not make sense to me.
sorry to hear that tits, that sounds tough. stay strong.
The subluxation doesn't enter into it. The laxity of the ligaments in the shoulder causes the natural position of the shoulder to be unstable leading to hypermobility (i.e. subluxation). If not treated, the weight of the arm continues to stretch the ligaments and muscles. This is one way in which the arm gets longer. The primary fixes for this are either surgery, which I'd really rather avoid if at all possible, or constant strength training of the rotator cuff and surrounding muscles to bring the shoulder back to a position which exhibits a greater stability and more normal range of motion. This training causes the muscles around the shoulder to tighten so that it can sit where it is properly supposed to, and I can assure you that it leads to a change in the length of your sleeve measurements, especially on jackets because part of this process causes the shape and expression of your shoulder to change. If the musculature is not maintained, the shoulder will loosen, become unstable again, and return to its previous position - i.e. your arm gets longer.
No worries dude. I hate shoulder exercises and sometimes miss the bar trick where I pull one shoulder out of socket to make that arm a few inches longer than the other, but both are preferable to waking up in agony because my shoulder isn't properly positioned.
