A strategic shot of working buttonholes in action on the cuffs of my bespoke Giliberto suit. In most cases I leave the buttons fastened, but on certain occasions will leave one button undone on each sleeve. This is useful to accommodate a watch or cufflinks, or, if it is cold, a v-neck jumper. Today working buttonholes, or surgeon's cuffs, are more a conversation piece than anything else. I like to think they look good whilst I am holding a glass of Sapphire and tonic.
