Too-long sleeves on a dress shirt have always been a concern for me. Folding the cuffs up once and re- buttoning to mimic French cuffs is an awkward way to temporarily shorten sleeves to avoid permanently altering them however this article reveals how easy it is to remove the cuff, cut the excess from the sleeve and resew. Most excellent article!

This is such a great idea! I love that you can get that custom-fit look without spending much money, too.
