hi there, I am currently working through my study module that covers sleeves, cuffs, cuff openings etc. and I have come across the "simple"sleeve opening for cuffs. (for those wondering what this is, its the opening without a placket/no slash, but an opening lying parallel to the cuff). so far I have only seen this opening on historical costumes but am wondering why this (so easy and just as convenient!) opening is not used on modern fashion shirts/mens shirts etc.? wouldn’t it make sense (time and $ saver) to use this opening instead of the slash with placket??? I know the placket came into fashion trend early 1900s but we’re in 2013 now so why is it still the preferred method?
I really appreciate any comments on this as not even my tutor could answer me that question,haha. she just said its a fashion trend and that the placket is more convenient for ironing sleeves… but whatabout womens shirts that are made from crinkle cotton,haha, they dont need ironing but yet I’ve seen some that have placket openings…?
