Rounded, Square, or Corner Shirt Cuffs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've looked up some old topics on this, but most of them has very few posters and opinions on them, which is strange since presumably most of us wear shirts and those of us who customize our shirts or have choices open to us will at some point make decisions on which kind to wear.

 

For me I'm planning to make a dozen or so shirts and am not sure which cuffs to use, though I've had both. Specifically I'm considering them for my barrel cuffs, I think I'd far prefer square cuffs for my French cuff shirts, but perhaps some might disagree on that also.

 

Would you say one style is more formal than the other? I feel like rounded is likely the most conservative and safest choice, but is square more formal? Is corner slightly more dandy? How do you think they affect the look? As the wearer we rarely get to see the effect ourselves unless looking at a mirror so perhaps it's so minor and difficult to notice detail nobody really cares?

I personally do standard round barrel cuff with my shirts. I have had mitered ones, but they seem way more casual to me

 

As for french cuffs, all of my shirts that have been made with french cuffs have rounded cuffs. I like the look. My OTR FC shirts have square ones and I am happy with them, but the rounded ones add a bit more flair to my style I think

Single cuffs - prefer round but do have some square cuffs. Dislike mitre cuff

Double cuffs - square only

For barrel, round. For french, square.

What do you think the different choices signify, if any? Do you think there's a difference in formality or is it a pretty perosonal choice either way?

Most people won't notice or care. Choose based on what you think looks nicest.

No one on earth will care: Make your own choice.
