Is there a purpose to shirts having 2 buttons on the cuff or is this just to allow for different size wrists?

There is also a double buttoned cuff, Savile Row shirt makers are very fond of. Here both buttons (in the case of Turnbull & Asser even three) are on the same line, close to the edge and each has it's corresponding button hole. This ia a design feature and is supposed to represent quality.Originally Posted by bengal-stripe
There are two ways of having double buttoned shirt cuffs. One way gives you the option to tighten the cuff, because one button is close to the edge and the other an inch or so futher into the cuff; corresponding is one button hole which will take either button.Originally Posted by bengal-stripe
