Your wedding is the most important day of your life and you want to look nothing short of perfect. At Bentex, we believe God is in Detail, the small details add to the final look of your Tailor made wedding suit. Even the smallest detail of how much of the cuff is shown speaks volumes about quality of your custom made suit.
Often grooms ask us “What is the correct length of shirt and jacket sleeves, how much of cuff should show?” Sleeve length seems to be a gray area in which anyone can claim to be an expert, they may actually know very little about dressing well. In this article we will discuss what the correct length of jacket and sleeve is and how much of cuff should show.
Being in men’s fashion for over 7 years we have realized that men often focus of the jacket sleeve length and not about the length of the shirt sleeve. Many times it is in fact the shirt sleeve length that’s not right. If it is too short then you will not be able to have the sleeve showing thru the jacket cuff. That is why we believe if you want to create that perfect look then you must have a tailor made shirt to go with your tailor made suit.
Correct shirt sleeve length is when the shirt sleeve finishes at the midpoint between the base of your thumb and the point where the wrist ends and your hand starts. And the correct jacket sleeve length is when it finishes right on your wrist bone. So the rule of thumb is that your shirt sleeve should show about half an inch more than your jacket sleeve. But also please keep in mind it is not only the jacket sleeve length that matters, it is also the jacket sleeve fit that is equally important. With tailor made wedding suits you will have a fitted sleeve where the jacket cuff is not too wide which will mean that your jacket sleeves will not ride up too much when you sitting or dancing with your bride!
