Several people here have mentioned that French cuffs sold on most RTW shirts are way too large. Â Obviously there is more than enough room in the buttonhole for the cufflinks, so could you narrow the effective length of the buttonhole by sewing several loops of thread just inside the far end (closest to the edge of the cuff) of the buttonhole? Â This should make the space in the buttonhole more narrow and make the cuff tighter, should it not? Â Would this be a reasonable way to do this, or would it result in the cufflink not covering that end of the buttonhole, and causing things to look off? Â Opinions?
