Budd shirt double-cuff length (from bottom to top not left to right) is 7CM, seems small compared to other shirts? What is ideal length? New and lingwood definitely longer and looks nice IMHO

Mine (when folded) are about 2 5/8" or 6.67cm. These are made bespoke via Richard Anderson. N&L (a former maker for me) will cut them to your specifications. They first made for me in the early 80's and they are exactly the same length as the RA shirts. In those days there was no Style Forum or Internet to advise us so we learned on our own or with the help of a friend or relative. I'm thinking Sean O'Flynn was the maker and I probably just said "these cloth samples, make 'em up." I'm guessing I left it in his court. I got used to it and stuck with it. But I also recall that my first cutter at Anderson & Sheppard showed a LOT of cuff ... and I'm thinking his were longer. He was quite a good dresser.

Just to be honest, I'm not a double cuff fan. Unless I'm wearing a somber lounge suit or a dinner jacket, I use button cuff. I'm guessing no more than 15% of my shirts are double cuff. All those lovely cufflinks are just sitting in a box.

To give you an idea of my size, in ready-to-wear I'd be a 15.5" x 33".

This post reminds me of the old days here at Style Forum ... back when things were ... well ...
fun.
