Functional buttonholes, also called a "surgeons cuff," were named historically after doctors. These doctors had to make house calls and roll up their sleeves when visiting a patient. Military surgeons also garnered the name as they had to stitch wounds on the battlefield.

Today, functional buttonholes are a sartorial detail that alludes to luxurious custom tailoring.
I customized my sleeves with a touch of white thread around the last buttonhole to really POP. (below)

I love the versatility of a subtle gray windowpane suit. It is a nice secondary piece in the modern man's wardrobe.
