The placket is the part of your button-down shirt where the buttonholes are placed. I like to direct women to placket shirts because they're almost always made with more than one layer of fabric, often contrasting fabric, which lends a more tailored, luxurious look to shirts.
The placement of a placket can affect the way your clothes feel, almost like a more distinguished vibe. They make even the most affordable blouse look more expensive.
