Arms And The Man

Recently we received the following email:

Have you noticed that the sleeves on golf shirts are getting shorter? Ralph Lauren used to sell some nice Polo Golf polos with sewn sleeves that came down almost to the elbow, where in my opinion they belong. I can’t find that length anywhere now. It’s a shame because it’s a nice look, particularly for us older folks. Ben Hogan favored it (when he wasn’t wearing long sleeved shirts and sweaters).

I say (to Ralph Lauren and all the others), “Give us a choice. Don’t assume we’re all headed to Muscle Beach.”

So, should shirt sleeves hit mid bicep, like young Arnie, or elbow like young Tiger?
