Opinions on this matter vary, but we have the scoop!


No placket (French Placket)

The French placket is a classic, plain style, and definitely our favorite (we are French, after all). Some people view this placket type as more casual, but we are all for a simplistic modern look in the office. This plain front can also be used for a tuxedo shirt

Visible Placket (American Placket)

The American placket is a bullet proof choice for anything business, as it is considered a standard office style. It is also the perfect placket style to pair with a pocket and a button down collar, for a more relaxed look.

Covered Placket (Fly Front)

A covered placket is by far the most formal option, and can be used both for a classic shirt, as well as a tuxedo shirt (that is is you are skipping the studs). An extra layer is folded over to hide the front buttons completely.
