For an MTO Neo sport coat, which is better, surgeon cuffs or faux cuffs?

I have only one other SC with functioning cuffs, but I find I keep them buttoned, and never unbutton them and roll up the sleeves, if that is supposed to be the point. If you keep the functioning cuffs buttoned, does anyone really even notice that they are functioning ?

They totally won't, though mine I leave the bottom button undone. People will argue against them for RTW, but MTO I don't think that'd matter unless your arms shrink

Another factor is that if you ever decide to sell it down the road (get sick of it, weight changes, etc.) may be easier to move with faux cuffs.

No box pleat. Correct. Clean back.

@spiermackay Will cotton or cotton/linen trousers come to MTO (apart from moleskin/cord)?
Not sure at the moment. Sondrio doesn't have a stock program. So we have to buy up full rolls to make that happen. Other merchants have similar fabrics, but because they need to be purchased by the cut, it gets very expensive.

@spiermackay I'm assuming you're online only at this point? No curbside pickups by appointment as you were doing previously or is that ongoing?

No. Shops are closed to the public for the time being. Online is allowed to operate as it is fulfillment.
