    what are your thoughts and feelings on having five buttons instead of the more traditional four on the cuffs of a suit?

    Sure, why not? It's bespoke for you.

    I tired it before.

    It does look silly after a while

    Up to you but a passing fad I suspect.

    This is Tom Ford's signature. For that reason I wouldn't do it on a non-TF suit.

    Hugo Boss is also doing it on their Selection stuff...also seen it with other manufacturers. Not special and not looking very good to me.

    How do YOU feel about it? You're the one who will be looking down your arm, not us. If you like it, get it. If not, don't.
