Tailored Men’s Shirts #5

The focus of today: sleeves. I bought this Ezekial shirt (on sale of course) and decided I liked it, could get in taken in at the sides… except the sleeves where an inch or two too long. You can also see the shoulder is long. So just take in the shoulder and the sleeves right? Well if you look closely at the bottom of the sleeves is a light strip of fabric that ties in the colors and design from the main part of the shirt, covering the chest. I wanted to keep this pattern on the tip of the sleeve. So I could only get the shoulders tucked in.

Getting the shoulders tucked in only raised the sleeve up, away from my elbow an inch. The sleeves aren’t where I want them to be, sadly. This is something to take into account anytime you buy a short sleeve to tailor. I’ve had to get logos cut off as well, including the Nike logo at the bottom of my sleeve in the golf shirt I used to introduce this topic.

So for anyone looking to use these tips… also take into account the sleeves.
