A sleeve is the part of a garment that covers the arm, or through which the arm passes or slips.  Sleeve length varies from barely over the shoulder (cap sleeve) to floor-length. Most contemporary shirt sleeves end somewhere between the mid-upper arm and the wrist.   A long sleeve shirt is one that goes all the way to the wrist (or beyond the wrist).  Their is a wide variety of long sleeve shirts.  For example, an angel sleeve, batwing sleeve, bell sleeve, bishop sleeve, etc.

Angel sleeve is a long wide sleeve that usually hangs loose from the shoulder.

Batwing sleeve is a long sleeve with a deep armhole, tapering towards the wrist. Also known as a "magyar" sleeve.

Bell sleeve is a long sleeve fitted from the shoulder to elbow and gently flared from elbow onward.

Bishop sleeve is a long sleeve, fuller at the bottom than the top, and gathered into a cuff.

Cold shoulder sleeve is a long sleeve that is disconnected past the stitching on top of the shoulder, but not underneath, where the armpit is. The top of the bicep is exposed.

Fitted point sleeve is a sleeve that is long and narrow and ends in a point resting against the back of the hand.

Juliet sleeve is a long, tight sleeve with a puff at the top, inspired by fashions of the Italian Renaissance and named after Shakespeare's tragic heroine; popular from the Empire period through the 1820s in fashion, again in the late 1960s under the influence of Zeffirelli's film Romeo and Juliet.

Poet sleeve is a long sleeve fitted from shoulder to elbow, and then flared (somewhat dramatically) from elbow to wrist (or sometimes mid-hand). Often features ruffles on the cuffs.

If you do not like long sleeves, you may wish to try the short sleeve shirt section.
