How long should the sleeves be?

How long should the sleeves be?

This by far is the most misunderstood part of putting on a suit. The sleeves of a suit should be as long as you feel comfortable with. The rule of thumb is that you should see about half a centimeter of the shirt when you stand straight and up to two centimeters when you raise your hands. This is something that is different from person to person. When you decide the length of the arms of your jacket you should consider where and in which situations you are going to use the jacket most of the time.

Some people use the jacket only outside where they are walking or standing. This means that the jacket can be altered giving the thought that it mostly will be used in standing and going situations. So a little shorter than usual.

Some people use the jacket inside and in the meetings where they use their hands as a part of their communication. They have their arms raised above the waist all the time. This means that you should spare a cm or two on the length of the sleeves because you don't want the jacket to be short on your arms when you are raising your arms. So a little longer than usual.

About us

Our Vision

Since the beginning of MAZAR in April 2019, we only have had one vision: "establish a structure in tailoring industry in Norway."

With a background in economy and tailoring we managed to find solutions and build a creative business model  to make a "standard price" and a "standard quality" for tailoring services in Norway. After Corona situation we understood the value of adapting to the changes in the society. We continue on our mission to build the structure for this industry in Norway.

MAZAR is all about customer´s feedback and expectations of a suit brand. We understand that every person is different with different desires and genetics. We choose to plan our business and design our suits based on the customers feedbacks and needs. Traditional brands go the other way. They design the clothes and we buy them. In our mission we listen to the customers and make changes in our factory.

We startet our business as a "tailoring house" and saw the difficulties people usually have when it comes to the suits. Mostly because it is difficult to find somewhere to alter the suit. This is the problem we want to solve. Close interaction with the customers to make it easy to buy a suitable suit and to alter it, is our way.
