Punctilios: French Cuff Layout, Part Deux

Continued from Part Une.  (Get it?  French cuffs, French numbers.  It's funny.)

This is the sleeve of a Paul Fredrick French-cuff shirt.  Note the placement of the cufflink.  (Note also how lucky I got to find cufflinks with enamel insets whose colors are the exact colors in this remarkable shirt which I bought for $20 on clearance and sight-unseen.)  The vertical line is more clean, as well:

In particular, the trailing edge of the cuff sits flat.

And that is perhaps more than you wanted to think about French cuffs.  Bon soir!
