Sleeve cuff

finished band of fabric or knit, sewn on to a garment so that it encircles a given part of the figure. Most commonly used to end the lower edge of sleeves, shirts, blouses, jackets, anoraks and trousers. Used also to reinforce parts of garments, facilitating the narrowing of openings and easy fastening, and as a decorative element. The most common types of c. include the single c., which is of a single width, the double c. (with a double width), and the fastening c. (detachable from the shirt sleeve).
