Jackets Required TV Presents: Episode 15 – Let’s Talk Cuffs, Shirt Cuffs

Welcome to Jacket’s Required, hello, I’m Dominic Lacquaniti, designer and tailor.

This week’s episode of Jackets required TV is about shirt cuffs.

The cuffs of a shirt are the only thing visible when wearing a suit besides the collar, so they come in a close 2nd in importance.

There are two main types of cuffs –

Button which is for casual to formal wear and French which is more formal.

First Button Cuffs – these are single cuffs that wrap around the arm and are buttoned. They can be single button or 2-button. 2-button allows for some adjustment. Shirts with 2 buttons and 2 buttonholes are called “Barrell Cuffs.”

French Cuffs are more formal but are also perfectly appropriate for daily wear. A French Cuff is a double cuff, folded back, that is fastened with cufflinks. Cufflinks are required with this particular style. You should keep a seasonal selection of options on hand and if you are curious about what types of cufflinks to use please reference my earlier episode of Jackets Required TV, number 3 – Accessories Make the Man.
