I never did understand the public's overawed fascination with having an extra two pounds of cloth draped around one's wrists unless it is some sort of succinct isometric exercise. Single Link Cuffs, the proper
antecedent to some desperate French designer's early 1900's misguided waste of additional fabric, are not only the more dignified but certainly the more comfortable style of cuff. Worn exclusively by such obviously unknowledgeable gents as Leonard Bernstein and Thomas K. Wolfe, the Single Link Cuff has none of the misengineering of French cuffs which cause them to bind inside all but the most 'sackish' of jacket sleeves. It remains the only
correct cuff for a "white tie" shirt. Hence, its inherent right to the title of "Most Formal". It weighs less than half that of the French cuff, hence its physics alone earn the title of "Most Comfortable".
Huh, single link cuffs, what a marvelous idea. Apart from the bespoke route, which company utilizes them? Jon.
