Is there a name for the typical French style infantry cuff flap – the usual 3-pointed, scalloped affair?
“Revers de poignet” ? (wrist flap, in French)
(I’m looking for an unambiguous English word that would indicate the particular form – but it looks like maybe “three-pointed” is as close as I will get.)
Cuffs as in at the wrist? They’re parements. The three-button strap is a patte de parement.
In English I think they’d just be sleeve cuffs or scallops.
