Speaking as an expat Welshman who emigrated from London, yes, it is a
little different.  I prefer to wear cufflinks;  unfortunately,
single-cuffed shirts in the US do not generally have the extra buttonhole
by the cuff button, so, if one wants to wear cufflinks, one has to wear
double-cuffed shirts.
