The Placket

You have a choice of three types of plackets (or: button tape / button strip): the decent smooth (French) placket, the classic conventional placket and the concealed placket.

The smooth placket / French placket

Our shirts have a superimposed button strip, and the buttons are visible. This is undoubtedly the most elegant way of fastening one’s shirt.

The conventional placket

With this classic style, the shirt has an extra length of fabric, on which the buttons are visibly sewed. This gives the shirt extra grip.

The concealed placket / fly front placket

This variant of the button strip is covered by another length of fabric. It is mostly used at particularly festive occasions (e.g. weddings).
