My men's shirt pattern has a continuous lap on the sleeve. I decided to use a placket like you see in RTW. This can work but be aware of one problem. The placket results in a longer sleeve bottom because there is more lap. The continuous lap just binds the edge of a slit. It is important to measure the sleeve bottom before cutting the cuff. I didn't and I had a difficult time getting the cuff on without gathers. I did bigger pleats and a smaller seam allowance so it worked but now I know.
