Guide To Dress Shirt Cuffs



Interlining is an extra piece of material sewn in that gives a cuff extra structure for a crisper look.

Most brands don't bother using quality interlining in the cuff because it's expensive, but we feel that it's what separates our shirts from sloppy ones.

H&C Cuff Types

Convertible Cuff

Our standard shirt cuff. It's a traditional barrel cuff (rectangular piece of fabric with square corners that's closed with a button). However, we put a second button-hole on the other side of the cuff that is unseen when worn normally buttoned, but can be opened up and worn with cufflinks. This makes the shirt much more versatile. Check out our selection of convertible cuff shirts.

Rounded Cuff

Our rounded cuff is simply a barrel cuff but we've sanded the sharp corners off. Rounded cuffs give off a slightly more casual and relaxed feel so we generally pair them with our button-down collars and, appropriately, our rounded collars. Check out our selection of rounded cuff shirts.

Mitered Cuff

The mitered cuff is a barrel cuff that has had the corners “mitered" or cut at an angle. It's an interesting detail that creates a sharp look fitting for more professional or formal occasions. Like our standard convertible cuff, our mitered cuff features the extra button hole, allowing them to be worn with or without links. Check out our selection of mitered cuff shirts.

French Cuff

Our French cuff is our most formal cuff. French cuffs are twice as long as regular cuffs and then folded back on themselves and closed with cuff links. They have a very pronounced look and we usually pair them with our more debonair collar styles or formal shirts. Check out our selection of French cuff shirts.

Two-button Scalloped Cuff

Our two-buttoned scalloped cuff is one of our most unique styles. It features a two-button closure and a curved or "scalloped" cuff edge. We think it provides a distinctive look, particularly when seen poking out under a jacket sleeve. Check out our selection of two-buttoned scalloped cuff shirts.
