Hi,
1st post as a newbie so please bear with me.
Picked up a beautiful Hermes Apple green formal shirt in a charity shop (thrift store) the other day, perfect fit but cuffs like I've never seen before.
They are double, as for use with cufflinks but at the base of the cuff each one has an attached metal stud (mushroom like in shape).
Really not sure how to fasten the cuffs?
Anyone got any ideas?
regards,
Howard

A picture would help. Can you post one?

This description makes no sense.

I hope this is something actually confusing and not the standard Hermes metal button cuff . . . .

seems like you need cufflinks.

True, but even if I used cufflinks for the usual buttonholes, what are the 2 studs for?
Still confused???

I can only think that there may may be a connecting link missing?
But if I fold them back in the usual way you would with a double cuff shirt they face the wrong way???
I am truly at a loss of how they work?
