Seen this in HSM post on their FB page.
I'd bet the sleeve is horribly short, maybe 3/4 inches short, and it can only emphasize lack of understanding? Or am I just picking?

Here is the accompanying text:

I suppose it is about a full watch band width short. Given that it is a PR photo standing calm and posing.
In motion it would not just show SOME cuff, it may show the WHOLE cuff.
Unless, of course, it is too tight to slide along the shirt when you wave your hand :)

I'm not so sure the jacket sleeve is cut short, but I am certain the wearing opportunities for wearing a wine hued suit have got to be limited! Why buy a suit that you will never be able to wear? :icon_scratch:

I don't know that the sleeve is THAT short - maybe 1/3 inch? But, then again, I likes to show a bit of cuff...

What is awful is the construction - if it looks that bad in that P.R. photo, I shudder to think what it looks like in real life. The color is hideous as well bringing to mind rotten fruit.

Of course, "Brooklyn" and "Fit" tell you all you need to know...
The puckering on the sleeve in a promo shot is unforgivable - who approved that!

I mean...the puckering looks bad, and the sleeve is short, but look closer.

It's not a construction issue. The jacket sleeve has just been folded up for the photo, and is rolled under itself, hence the rippling along the buttons and the lack of a sharp crease at the bottom. You can actually see the fold on the back half (lower right).

The sleeve was too long to show the shirt/watch as someone at the shoot desired, and they didn't bother to tailor a display jacket - that's all.

HSM seemed to be among those who should bother for display - they are not cheap 100$ poly suits, that's where they alledgedly make their profits.
