    I am planning on placing an order of custom shirts later this week and would like advice and pictures of various cuff styles that are favored by forum members. [​IMG]

    No picture, but one button, rounded barrel cuff for me whenever I have the option.

    I love the look of turned back cuffs (mostly seen in early James Bond films), are there any RTW options which feature that style?

    If you like turnback cuffs, you'll enjoy this thread.

    My absolute favorite is the rounded french cuff with the cuff and collar being of slightly stiffer than normal material to give it that crisp and solid look, however I usually reserve that for more formal ocassions. If your shirts are going to be worn without jackets, I think 1 button barrel cuffs are the way to go, though I sometimes wear french cuff shirts without jackets.

    I strongly prefer convertible cuffs. Can dress them up with cuff links, or use buttons for those times you don't want to be too flashy.

    If you don't have a strong sense of what you want going in, you should just get standard one-button rounded barrel cuffs. You may regret it later if you get something more unusual and decide you hate it after wearing it for a while.

    I placed my order. Several with rounded french cuffs and several with double button barrel cuffs. I will try to post pictures when the shirts arrive.

    That was the best decision.

    I wish they had elongated the cuff for the double buttons so the proportions looked a bit better. I tend to prefer my double-button single cuffs with a beveled, not rounded edge, but honestly, few people are going to notice much of anything. They look fine. Buttons look nice in shot 2.
