Not to hijack the thread... but I didn't see the point of starting a new one when this was close to what I was going to ask. I have several shirts with french cuffs as well as conventional cuffs. Sleeve length for the french cuff shirts I have is always longer than the sleeve length for conventional cuffs. French cuff sleeves are usually about 1 1/2 inches longer than conventional. Is this intentional, or is it a size availability thing? We have a lot less size options down under than in the US, eg when you buy trousers here (even bluejeans) they don't come in leg length sizes, they must be tailored to your height. One thing I cannot abide is my shirt sleeves being too long. Why are french cuff shirts cut this way?
