    Yes. Getting it to match is another matter.

    No offense, but what would possess you to go to the time, trouble and expense to do it?

    I like a particular shirt and is sick of having too many FC and also less chances to wear a FC wich is more formal than BC. That's why I am thinking of changing that so that I can wear more of this shirt.

    Did you end up getting the conversion done? How much does it cost?

    Pink is/was having a huge sale and I'm thinking of heading to my local store today but they usually have mostly French Cuffs on sale and it has too much flair for my line of work.

    If you had non-fused cuffs, can't you use the french cuff fabric itself to make the barrel cuff?
