    then you should try the "Wiener" cuff. you can also have the second button hole built in your single cuff shirts...

    Im not convinced, Fritzl... I remember some Arrow shirts with that feature, and it looked 'weder Fisch noch Schnitzel".

    no worries. i dunno what arrow shirts are...

    understood, it is a personal preference. i like the fact, i can choose. i also know of people, who build the french cuffs of their favourite shirts back instead of having them repaired...

    Arrow is a shirt brand. (American?) Famous (to me) for their poly blends.

    Okay, then I will skip the 'monks with eyelets' analogy...

    You mean they make single cuffs from their worn-out double cuffs?

    I like the simplicity of a rounded single cuff.

    Me too.

    For (semi)formal shirts I presently prefer the look of a single cuff to a double cuff (with links, no buttons).

    Ah, yes. Hadn't thought of those.

    that's, what i've been talking all the way. thus the question to your shirt.

    it's easy to convert... [​IMG]

    Hehe. Now I'm confused. I thought Kaplan meant black tie/white tie shirts.

    ^ He did [​IMG]

    Like so.

    But I'm pretty sure I've seen pics of them worn more casually as well, with just a suit.

    For practical reasons, and I like the simplicity of a rounded single cuff. I have some French-cuffed shirts, but they don't see much daylight.
    I'm completely with you on this. And as I move toward retirement -- and a more casual lifestyle -- I'm thinking more and more single cuff ... particularly the rounded version you have selected. Very nice.

    How about this Thomas Mason puppytooth?

    For me it's too warm for summer, but fine for early spring, autumn and winter.

    I like puppytooth as well. And having made California my main residence for the last twenty five years ... I don't mind jumping the gun on Memorial Day and wearing something like that in the spring.
