TYPES OF SHIRT CUFFS

Convertible Cuff

The standard shirt cuff is a traditional barrel cuff (a rectangular piece of fabric with square corners that’s closed with a button). However, we put a second buttonhole on the other side of the cuff that is unseen when worn normally buttoned

Rounded Cuff

The rounded cuff is simply a barrel cuff but we’ve sanded the sharp corners off. Rounded cuffs give off a slightly more casual and relaxed feel so we generally pair them with our button-down collars and, appropriately, our rounded collars.

Mitred cuff

The mitred cuff is a barrel cuff that has had the corners “mitred” or cut at an angle. It’s an interesting detail that creates a sharp look fitting for more professional or formal occasions. Like our standard convertible cuff, our mitred cuff features the extra buttonhole, allowing it to be worn with or without links.

French Cuff

The most formal cuff, the French cuff is twice as long as regular cuffs and is folded back on itself and closed with cuff links. French cuffs have a very pronounced look and we usually pair them with our more debonair collar styles or formal shirts.

Barrel Cuff

A traditional Barrel cuff is a less formal option than a French Cuff that still conveys a subtle sophistication. Traditionally fastened by a single button closure, all of our Barrel cuffs actually come with two buttons, which allow you to control the snugness of the wrist.
