Turned-back cuffs - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I purchased one from Jantzen a few weeks ago. I ultimately landed up having my local tailor remove the extra fabric (rather messily, I'm afraid) simply because I felt too self-conscious to wear them. For whatever it's worth, my wife and my father thought they looked fine ("modern" was my father's word).

Sorry for digging a corpse from its grave, but as requested by a gentleman from this board, ...... Picture of Connery fitted by Anthony Sinclair, who requested Connery to sleep in the suit for one night and found the suit in perfect shape the next morning. Notice that in this picture (Dr. No) the fold-back covers the sleeve-cuff joint, which is different from the two pictures Mr. Nick M posted, and was my main concern when I was making mine.  Accordingly, they made this shirt for Bond so he could take it off and put it on easily.  I personally prefer a large fold-back, as it will not get in the way of the jacket sleeves.  As Dr. No was the first Bond movie, I assume this was the first time they made such a cuff.
