  1. Rounded cuffs (with one or two buttons) – are the most universal cuffs on our website. The rounded ends of the cuffs will look nice on informal linen shirt as well as in a suit with a tie. Two buttons are considered more formal and we advise to choose two buttons also if you are of a higher figure, as they look proportionally better than one button.

  2. Angled cuffs (with one or two buttons) – are typically used for formal shirts and are worn with a suit, but are also popular for smart casual outfits. Version with two buttons is considered to be the most formal from all button cuffs.

The cuffs do not feature any buttons – the end of sleeves are folded up and buttoned with cufflinks. There is a variety of cufflinks, from less formal silk knots to more formal metal cufflinks.


  1. No Pleats – this is the cleanest style suitable especially for formal shirts. If a shirt has no pleats, it means it had to be tailored to fit the person wearing it.

  2. Box Pleat – box pleat is the most common style of pleats. It is a rectangular fold of fabric placed in the middle of the back, which allows for up to 5 centimeters of extra fabric. It is advisable for men who have shoulders that slope. However, it is the least formal and can add fullness to the waist.

  3. Side Pleats – side pleats provide for a cleaner look, as they are placed near the shoulder blades. They are considered more stylish and subtle than box pleat and tend to fit men more comfortably because they align better with the shape of the their back.


  1. Standard Placket – this is the most common style of placket and is suitable for both formal and informal shirts. Few centimeters of the fabric is either folded or attached as a separate piece and stitched on both sides. It adds stability to the front of the shirt and makes the front of the shirt aesthetically symmetrical.

  2. No Placket – when you choose no placket, the edge of the shirt’s front is folded over to create a creased edge and held together by the buttonholes. This gives the shirt clean and plain look. In general, this front style is considered more formal than the standard placket (and less formal than concealed placket).

  3. Concealed Placket – a Concealed shirt placket has a flap of material on the front to conceal the buttons. It is also sometimes known as the Fly Front shirt placket. It can be worn for formal events that require a tuxedo and a bowtie.
