I ran a search on SF looking for answers to this and wasn't able to find too much. Seems like it might be a matter of personal preference but here trying to get a more definitive answer.

Shirt Cuffs (Button, Single, French/Double) - I've seen button cuffs with rounded, squared, and angled edges. I assume the same applies to double cuffs as well. Are there social cues that go along with each such as if a rounded button cuff was more traditional and squared, angled button cuffs were more modern, squared double cuffs were traditional, and angled double cuffs were modern? Those sort of things.

Also with the bottom of the suit jacket, where the two sides come together with buttons, my suit jackets are all rounded but I've seen jackets that are squared once before. Is there any particular distinction similar to what I described before with this small detail.

These are all really minor details but hey, why not learn about it.

Thanks in advance

I would say that squared or angled cuffs are slightly more formal than rounded, but I know of no authority for this, just my own personal thoughts.

I don't know that I've seen squared jacket bottoms.

i've only seen the squared jacket bottom once which is why i still remember it. Such an oddity but it didn't seem half bad, just seemed out of the ordinary.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
