Originally an Edwardian detail, it saw a return to popularity in the 50's and 60's. Apart from being decorative, it adds a very unique flair to the jackets, especially in eveningwear. They also have a more practical use: If the gauntlet cuff is worn out, it can be removed to reveal a brand new and unworn sleeve edge under the cuff. All other default Tom Fordian details exist: L. Apped and pick-stitched seams, a Milanese-style boutonnière on the lapel, barchetta patch breast pocket, and 5 functional buttons on each cuff.Marked as size 48R (EU) which is 38R (US). Armpit-to-armpit: 20 - 51 cm. Shoulders: 18 - 46 cm. Sleeve Length from Shoulder: 26.4 - 67 cm. Sleeve Length from Armpit: 18.5 - 47 cm. Jacket Length from Top of Collar: 30.3 - 77 cm. Jacket Length from Bottom of Collar: 28.75 - 73 cm. On a final note: The jacket came as it's main button is weakly stitched, ex-factory (see last photo).
E ven though it's an easy fix for any skilled-tailor, since this's such a precious piece, I only recommend to take it to a registered Tom Ford tailor.
