The sign of a well dressed man is the wearer’s attention to detail. When a man cares enough to be mindful of the finer details of dressing, he will insist on surgeon’s cuffs on his suit jackets. Savile Row was inhabited largely by surgeons before the tailors moved in during the 19th century, and their influence can be seen in the “surgeon’s cuff”. On the most expensive suits the cuff buttons, which mirror the pips of military rank, can be undone, allowing the sleeve to be rolled back.
In this way, surgeon’s cuffs become an indication of social rank (200 years ago, doctors were “upper class”) and to this day are typically found on higher end, tailored garments.
This photo features a handmade Neopolitan navy cashmere Kiton sport coat using interesting red silk thread for the accents. The buttons are a natural horn and all buttonholes were created and sewn by hand. The process takes several hours.
