... that is the question. Dear fellow members, I apologize if this has already been covered extensively, as it is a classic question but cannot find a really in-depth answer. So I would like to detail it further, and suggest to have it properly substantiated mainly with 1920-40's evidences and rules. So here it is: 1/ Should or should not show some shirts' cuffs for a proper gentleman? Some says it is just a question of taste, and that some London bespoke tailor do not, but consensus seems to show some... 2/ If yes, how long? I read almost everything from 50 cm to 2 cm... And then it depends on business suit, country suit, evening attire, odd jacket... 3/ Other historical or cultural parameters: US versus UK versus continental Europe? Timeframe especially from 20' to 40's? 4/ Other tailoring parameters: diameter of the jacket sleeve, cufflinks or not, or even single of French cuffs... Actually as for myself I try to show a very little cuff aroun 50 cm to 1 cm but if of course varies depending of the shirt/jacket combination, and I am quite frustrated that no one never notices my cufflinks unless I remove the jacket. But I prefer that rather than having a giant cuff growing outside. And unfortunetely I cannot afford besopoke shirts and suits that would solve the problem... Thanks for joining the debate! Hope to hear from you... Plenty of pictures and examples welcome!
