There doesn't seem to be any point in the "Twisted Placket or the "Reverse Seam" other than aesthetics. As far as I'm concerned, the twisted placket is an incredibly irritating gimmick that has put me off buying many of the shirts. The single needle shirts (which don't have this strange twist) are actually quite fine. I have owned a few Workshirts too, but had to get rid of them sue to the fit problems people have spoken about on here. The thing which always attracts me to them are the designs - the materials used are often fantastic.
