Convertible Cuff verses French Cuff

A true French cuff folds back and must have cuff links for closure

Ever wonder what it means when a tailor refers to the convertible cuff option? Although the convertible cuff is not for everyone, it may be a great choice for you.

To start, it is NOT a true French cuff in that it does not actually fold back before closure. It also isn’t a French cuff because it has a button and buttonhole that is always useable.


However, if you do like to add a little bling with cuff links as well, the option is there. In other words, there are also holes to wear the links but they are not necessary as they are when wearing a true French cuff. The convertible cuff is obviously a little more casual but a great way to show off those awesome links you got for Father’s Day.  So, convertible cuff something you might like to try? Click here to start your custom dress shirt with your first convertible cuff.

How to Create a Dapper Street Style

Street style doesn’t mean you have to be sporting joggers and sneakers. Men with style know that you can create a well put-together and dapper casual look if you follow a few simple rules.

1. Keep one piece dressy. Whether it be a sport coat or a custom dress shirt, as long as one piece is a bit dressier you are on the right track.


2. Layer. Adding different textures and elements can really up your street style game.


3. Play with one trend at a time. Don’t try a shearling coat and a wide leg pant. Pick one and keep the rest neutral. (Although this guy forgot his, you should remember to wear a shirt.)


4. Monochrome. Try to go with shades and colors that are close. This instantly modernizes and dresses things up a bit.


5. Detail it.  Add a detailed belt or topcoat with jeans and a blue button down. Instant swagger.

Casual Friday: Denim Blazers

Whether you love them or hate them, denim blazers are gaining popularity. They can make for a nice casual Fall look if you do it right. Here is how.

Do: Stick with classic pairings.

Paired with a white shirt, open collar and navy slacks. Clean.

Don’t: Get all cowboy on us.

I just can’t.

Do: Pair with lighter shades of shirts and pants.

The pale blue shirt and white chinos make for a crisp modern look.

Don’t: Go double-breasted.

It’s too much. The acid wash, big buttons and wide lapel.

Unless you are this guy.

Do: Take advantage of a great price on a summer weight denim for next year.

Remember real fabrics wrinkle.

Dress Well! Be Well and Happy Casual Friday!
