Sleeve Length

In Dressing the Man, Flusser is pretty damn adamant that 1/2 an inch of shirt should peek out the bottom of suit jacket sleeves. FLG's never been a big fan on shirts sticking out of the sleeves. This goes back to when he was a wee lad and he thought suits were uncomfortable. But he was wrong.

If you take a look at Cary Grant's suit in N x NW, you'll see that the white of the shirt at the sleeves changes the whole look of the damn thing. FLG has half-a-mind to try on all his suits, check the sleeve length, and run to the tailor.
