There’s no shame in admitting that no, you do not bear up under comfortably northwards of the five-foot mark, nor is it a shortcoming to accept that your arms won’t a day rip T-shirt sleeves. What you can change, though, is how you dress what the man essentially has given you, and this is never more important than when use a suit.
