Spanish term or phrase: tajalí
Tajalí con botón: la gran mayoría de nuestros clientes escoje el tajalí sin botón para las camisas de vestir. Es más limpio, elegante y fácil de planchar; además es frecuente romper el botón con la plancha o que uno se olvide de abrochárselo. Para evitar que se abra y se vea el brazo nosotros hacemos un tajalí más corto que permanece siempre en su sitio. Sin embargo, en camisas de sport el tajalí se hace más largo para poder remangarse la camisa, y esto obliga a poner un botón para que no se abra.

agree  Noni Gilbert: Perhaps "cuff placket" to make it quite clear. Thought it was only devoted readers of Land's End catalogues who knew this word!
