Short summary: How can I disguise a ring of dirt on the cuffs of my new linen/silk suit jacket (shown below), assuming my dry cleaner can't get it out? I'm leaning toward turnback cuffs, but would like input from forum experts on (1) alternatives and (2) the advisability of turnback cuffs on a single-breasted, 2-button, double-vented linen/silk suit jacket with peak lapels (and flat front, cuffed trousers). Here is one of the offending cuffs: Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! Uploaded with ImageShack.us Here's the backstory: Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! The week before Christmas, I visited the NMLC in Dallas and was pleased to find a cream linen/silk suit in my size. Since I've been looking for a cream linen suit for several years, I bought it and took it to my alterations tailor once I got home. He cuffed the trousers, lengthened the jacket sleeves, and added new MOP buttons, but told me that there was not only a crease where the old cuff ended, but also a ring of grime that his dry cleaner couldn't remove . The sleeve buttons are also too far from the end of the sleeve. I had forgotten that lengthening the sleeves and moving the false button holes on the sleeves would leave visible holes in linen. So the sleeve buttons are too far from the ends of the sleeves. My tailor offered to put a ring of white stitching over the dirt, saying this is sometimes a feature of women's jackets. I declined and researched turnback cuffs on jackets. I find they have a history, but are most often found on overcoats and occasionally on tweed odd jackets. Turnback cuffs rarely appear on suit jackets, but here is HRH Prince Charles with turnback cuffs on a suit jacket: Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! Uploaded with ImageShack.us Gordon Geckko also appeared with turnback cuffs on a suit jacket in the movie "Wall Street", but I've only found one instance of turnback cuffs on a linen suit jacket (double-breasted, with peak lapels), worn by Richard Merkin in a GQ article from Nov. 1990: Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler! Uploaded with ImageShack.us Since Merkin apparently had a reputation as something of a "flaneur", an idler and dandy, I'm not sure turnback cuffs on my suit jacket is advisable. Opinions? Alternatives?
