Showing Colbert-style Cuff
I love this jacket by Southwick for the Andover Shop but the previous owner’s arms were a tad shorter than mine, and as such the sleeve length is about 1/2” shorter than I’d ideally want it. Rather than pay to have the sleeves lengthened (the fabric is there, but I’m too cheap to do it), I just don it each time and tell myself that Stephen Colbert likes his sleeves to be about this length, so it must be Southern Trad and Ivy appropriate.
