(It's applicable to button cuffs as well, I guess.) Reading about BjornH's and Keith T's problems getting silk knots through French cuff buttonholes I thought I'd ask a question. I've noticed that the various French cuff shirts I have have very varied levels of stiffness among the cuffs, some to the point where getting a toggle style link through and flipped is nearly impossible, especially if it's the kind with the angled toggle. The other extreme is the shirts with so little stiffness that the cuffs fold somewhat around the link, which I don't actually mind much but the shirts like that do look much more casual. Have people been specifying the weight of the cuffs for Jantzen and other custom shirts, or am I the only one who's picky about this? Do different styles of shirts require different weights of cuff, does it depend on the weight of the fabric, or do you like them all to be the same? Discuss.
