What type of shirt cuffs are these?
This style is known as a single-link cuff. It is similar to a French cuff, except it does not fold back. Normally, it is considered more formal than the French cuff.
BTW, I believe the picture is of RFK (Robert), not JFK.
That ain't JFK dude
Single cuff. Give Walt a break on his misidentification. He was dead long before either Kennedy held office.
RFK wore a single-french cuff white shirt when he was fatally wounded in June 1968.
Yes that's Robert and a single cuff is actually less formal.
SIngle cuff like this is worn with formal white tie. Think it is more common with square corners than rounded.
I have to disagree with you!
The fact they are required for proper white tie makes me think they are more formal than double cuffs...
Don't confuse single cuffs with barrel cuffs.
The Brits call French-Cuffs 'Double Cuffs'.
And your point is?
Link-cuff. All my non-barrel cuffed shirts are made in this style. Not ok as per the 'rules' (as the link cuff is meant for formal dress), but I'm a rebel.
The Kennedys were style icons despite bad luck with tragedies.
