This is a shirt I took to my father's tailor last year. It's a white, french cuff shirt, which is my favourite. For some odd reason my body appeared to have been doing its own thing late last year. Shirts, which were my size, would fit me right on the neck, but the sleeves would come up short. Much to my ire. When I asked the tailor if this could be fixed he also gave me a resounding 'yes'. The shirt would not be fixed from the shoulder but from the cuff. All he told me to do was to go and get some matching fabric and leave the rest to him.
Upon closer inspection one can see the distinction between the two white fabrics at the cuff. The extra fabric is the one that seems a little transparent. The stitching can also be seen. It was done very professionally, like how a real tailor ought to do.
I've gone from no cuff at all to showing more than enough cuff. It looks great might I add. I hope someone out there has been answered.
