    I disagree with that. You can get a very short placket with a FC because you'll never roll it up so you don't need the functionality of a longer slit.

    correct

    ...am not talking about td. that's long gone, also due he's not participating atm. i mentioned the french cuffs. ...and i was talking about general rules applying to the different kinds of cuffs, especially old school. not very innovative, i know. but so i am, very conservative. btw, no button on my barrels, too ...also no gaping at all.

    you never addressed the rolling up sleeves point. do you never roll up the sleeves on your shirts? i do this regularly (esp. on a summer weekend), and having a short sleeve placket without a button makes this impossible. are you saying that only people who buy RTW would only want to roll up their sleeves, and anyone who buys bespoke shirts would never want to roll up their sleeves? because that would be fucking retarded.

    Rolling up your sleeves is not the only reason why one may want to have a generous gauntlet.
    It makes ironing the cuff so much easier.

    But with a button cuff, the two gauntlet panels will always neatly overlap. With an FC, they won't. They need the button or else they will gape.

    with a grain of salt: buy better shirts...

    There is no way to make an FC shirt with the overlapping guantlet of a BC shirt. A quick examination of both side by side should reveal why.

    Nice fabric, Adrian! Mind to share which range it comes from? I fear it might be from the Soyella line. Re: The gauntlet button discussion. In which situations do you guys actually get to roll up your shirt sleeves? Do you work?

    Yes we work, and we've been working for a while unlike some know-it-all kid who makes it sound like they know everything from experience. And we also wear shirts when we don't work (shocking - that happens!)
