A well-fitting suit is a sign of decency for a man.
There are many things that need to be paid attention to when dressing appropriately, and sleeve length is one of the important things.
Today we talk about these small cuffs. There are two important reasons for having a suitable sleeve length. You have to know!
As soon as you raise your hands and feet, the cuffs will become the most obvious position. Any minute longer or shorter will show your taste.
Secondly, your high-end watch needs to shine just right, which depends on the key cuff length. Don’t exaggerate and don’t cover up.
Actually, most people have this problem. They don’t know what length of sleeves to choose, and they don’t really care too much about this issue. Now the editor tells you that this is not an issue that can be ignored, it is about your male decency.
So what is the appropriate length of sleeves at the cuffs?
This involves two issues, one is the sleeve length of the suit and the sleeve length of the shirt. After all, autumn is here, and they will be the best partners.
The sleeve length of a suit is generally determined based on the sleeve length of the shirt, so let’s first understand the appropriate sleeve length of the shirt.
1. Shirt sleeve length
Some people will say that you only need to use a measuring tape to measure the actual appropriate length of the sleeves. Then I want to say, you are thinking too much. Simple.
The actual correct sleeve length should be that the cuff is aligned with the base of the thumb, even when the hand is moving.
In order to achieve this effect, the shirt sleeves must be precise in terms of sleeve length, armholes, and cuff tightness.
When a body measurer measures the body to collect body data, the correct way to measure sleeve length is to droop the arm naturally and align the cuff with the base of the thumb.
The way to judge whether the sleeve cuff is suitable is to raise your arm. If the cuff is shorter, it means the sleeve cuff is too big.
This kind of problem generally only occurs on ready-made clothes. In order to make the shirt suitable for more people, the sleeve holes will be adjusted larger.
So when purchasing a ready-to-wear shirt, be sure to pay attention to the size of the sleeve holes: it will be comfortable to wear and the shirt cuffs will not be pulled up when you raise your arms.
However, if you choose to customize a shirt, you need to measure your arm circumference, so there will be no problem of inappropriate sleeve holes.
The tightness of the cuffs is also an important factor in the appropriate sleeve length. If the cuff buttons are appropriate, the cuffs will not move up and down easily even if there is a problem with the sleeve length.
The cuffs are too loose, and when you reach for something, the cuffs will slide down the back of your hands, giving people a very unsightly and slovenly look.
The cuffs are too tight and cuffs around the wrists, which is very uncomfortable and ill-fitting, like wearing someone else’s clothes.
In addition, if you are used to wearing a watch, you also need to clarify with the custom fitter whether to wear it on the left hand or the right hand. The body measurer will adjust the cuff of your left or right hand to be larger based on your habits. And the amount of addition will also be different. This way, it’s less likely to bump your wrist when wearing a shirt.
Of course, this special demand must be customized to be realized, and it is unlikely that ready-made clothing will have such treatment. Unless you take it to a tailor shop for modification.
Now, you have a certain understanding of how to have a suitable sleeve length for a shirt. Next, let’s continue to look at the appropriate length of sleeves for a suit.
2. Suit Sleeve Length
Historically, there have been endless debates about the sleeve length of suits, and fashion experts from various countries also have different ways of wearing them.
Some British custom tailors prefer that the suit sleeves completely cover the shirt sleeves;
Europe and the United States also have different requirements for the sleeve length of suits, ranging from 0.64 cm to 2 cm. between.
The editor is in the customization industry, and has gained some of his own insights based on interactions with the industry and some of the needs of customers.
It is recommended to be 1CM shorter than the sleeve length of the shirt. The cuffs reveal a narrow light-colored sleeve edge, which is very elegant and can also show off your high-end watch.
Of course, as long as it is about 1CM, no need to worry too much.
In addition, the sleeve fat of a suit also affects the beauty of the sleeves.
Coat sleeve fat should be coordinated with shirt sleeve fat. Some old-style coats have very wide cuff edges that even reveal the inside of the sleeves. These oversized sleeves make the hands look small and uneven. So please pay attention to the coordination of shirt sleeves and coat sleeves.
Have you learned anything from the above? Quickly go to the mirror and take a look. Are the sleeves of the clothes you are wearing appropriate?
