I side with those that prefer to have a GB on their shirts. Just looks neater -- to my eyes anyway. The Charvet "house style", for example, does away with the GB (regardless of whether it's button-cuff or double-barrel -- read into that what you will, given the historical origins of the GB. ;-) [Why, then, Dunhill is eschewing the GB these days is beyond me.] Consequently, whenever I order MTM from Charvet, I always have to ask for the GB; they always frown at the request, and I always frown back at them. In the end, everyone is happy...My question is about shirt sleeves. Â The vented portion behind the cuff - my British shirts, especially T & A, have no buttons there - it just flaps open. Â When ordering bespoke, what would make you order one or the other? Â Why do some makers put buttons there and some don't?
