Turnback Cuffs on Dress Shirts? - Page 4

post #46 of 73
Well, those are distinctive cuffs... but I would far prefer classic double cuffs or barrel cuff with two buttons.

Thread resurrect... how might these cuffs look with a button down collar? Has anyone ever tried that combination?

I like them and have a few T&A shirts with them, yet for some reason I find that I don't wear them very often.

FWIW, I don't think they're particularly casual (I'd say more formal than barrel cuffs), nor are they any flashier than double cuffs with metal links. With a button-down though? Seems that a button down collar is too casual to pull off turnbacks.

However, I do think they would look more acceptable if they weren't made with two different fabric types. The "contrast" cuffs seem to yell for attention. "Hey, look at me, I'm uniquie."


I feel exactly as you do.

Never seen this style before, i'm sure it will be improved upon in due time.

I have these cuffs on this Ben Sherman I have. They are very soft though, much like the collar (which is almost 70s huge). Apart from the collar I like the shirt.

Can you roll your shirt sleeves easily with these cuffs (or at least as easily as sleeves with French cuffs)? I guess you can't flip your cuffs up at the wrist like you can with normal barrel cuffs.

I am a big fan of these cuffs, but I would have to agree except if you want to bold wearing them to a formal work environment could be inappropriate.

But they still look great

Thanks. I surprised no one has mentioned collar sizes on my cocktail cuff shirts. They are LARGE; 70s era large. I love my shirts.

I have a few T&A with these cuffs (heard folks in the turnbull store requesting the "bond" cuff) - you can only get them from turnbull on the bespoke shirts. anyways, they are sort of cool, only with a suit

Beautiful shirts! They remind me of some Robert Graham designs, only better since they're bespoke. Care to divulge the location of the two beautiful ladies?

I would also guess that a plain all white poplin turnback cuff shirt would be quietly distinctive and not jar any observer.

As a classicist in dress: quiet suits, rep ties and white shirts with barrel cuffs for meetings and weddings, etc., I wear these turnback cuff shirts for 'fun'. 'Fun' being with jeans and RM Williams boots. It's my look and I try to look comfortable in it. Here is one that I posted to shocking silence awhile back.



I am constantly being asked where I bought these shirts, so certainly the 'fun' factor counts for something. Being bespoke is icing on the cake. , as is the opportunity to consult with the two beautiful ladies that create these for me; and surprise and delight me with the colour, button and fabric combinations.

But of course. The two ladies are Rosa and Johanna, located in Toronto. They work for Don Lee of Trend Custom Tailors.

Didn't see it mentioned above.... If I may ask, what does this shirt cost? Is that in USD or whatever the currency is in Canada...

PS: Super cool shirt. Its nice to see something interesting and innovative. I would like to see if they will make me a few shirts remotely.
