Start a poll?

For me too much is more than 3/4 of an inch (while standing straight). But it depends on how tall and how young you are.

For me an inch is bordering on too much. No cuff is too little.

More than 1 inch is too much. Anything below is fine, IMO.

IMO if you are young it is possible to wear more cuff. As old man it is expected that it fits perfectly.

I think one inch is really pushing it. Half an inch is ideal, but sometimes I show a little more or a little less.

I don't agree with the choices of your poll.

I don't think that there is a single person who will think that more than 1" is acceptable and to some people there is great distinction between 1/2" and 3/8" cuff.

A better poll would have been:

How much shirt sleeve do you like to show past your jacket cuffs?
1) no cuff
2) 1/8"
3) 1/4"
4) 3/8"
5) 1/2"
6) 3/4"
7) 1"


Anyways...my vote was in the 1" or more group is too much, however I would have liked to vote for 3/4" as correct group.

I think more than 1 inch is too much, but I love showing 3/4 - 1" inch of cuff, especially with a shirt with nice detail that you want to show off.
