Basting the selvedge makes sense.  But I was surprised that he seemed not be using any pins.  Guess the fabric has such grip that after basting there's no concern about the print moving out of alignment?

Why do you and some other people think this is better than tacking the cuffs?


Unbuttoning the cuffs is much better for cleaning.

We use to use pop studs on PTU's for this reason. Worked OK on mid to fine cloths but tended to come un poped on heavy cloth.

Worked well if you catch you heel in the turn ups, just un poped rather than rip the tack.

Long ago, when I thought it was a pretty nifty idea, I used snap fasteners. Until it became apparent that after repeated hard pressing following dry-cleaning they left a visible impression. Since then it's back to thread only; I use a thread that easily breaks to prevent damage that is more difficult to repair.
