The CashCuff® - The World's First Smart Payment Shirt
Contactless payment from the cuff! No wallet, no phone and no app required.
October 2019 sees a global first, as we bring smart shirts to market with the CashCuff®.
We design and make beautifully tailored shirts, our surface patterns reflect today's digital, eco-caring and high-tech world, now they're available with our unique contactless payment system that we call the CashCuff® that is discretely embodied in the shirt cuff.
This is chic geek. The CashCuff® is defining fashion-tech, a marriage of the simplicity of contactless payment with exquisite tailoring. Describing his latest innovation, Dresscode CEO, Andy Boothman said “We designed CashCuff® for the fashion conscious high tech lover, it’s hidden away out of sight, but always there when you want it.
With a CashCuff® shirt from DressCode®, our customers have one less thing to worry about, they have money available on-demand, no wallet...no phone...no problem, it’s perfect, going about your daily routine safe in the knowledge that you have cash on hand whenever you need it.”

What tech is involved?
The CashCuff® uses NFC (near field communication) technology connected to a prepaid card. Using the award winning MuchBetter® digital payment platform, users allocate funds to the shirt. The platform will then provide full details of every transaction and the reassurance of a global network, to ensure your money is safe. In the future we hope to have our shirts linked directly to several major credit card brands. There’s also a host of other access and control features that we are currently exploring.
Can I switch it off?
Yes, via the MuchBetter® platform, the CashCuff® can be switched off in seconds, rendering it completely useless. It can then be reactivated just as quickly, using MuchBetter®.
What about washing and ironing the shirt?
In the same way you wouldn’t wash your credit card and expert that to keep working, the CashCuff® is removable. We believe this creates a more convenient solution for our customers – allowing them move the CashCuff® chip from shirt to shirt.
Can I Iron it?
Just as you would remove collar stays or cufflinks from your shirt to iron it, you remove your CashCuff® chip to iron the shirt.
Is the CashCuff® a ‘wearable’?
The CashCuff® could be described as passive wearable technology, in the form of smart clothing, using EMV waves from POS terminals for power generation. We prefer to describe the CashCuff® as smart clothing, offering technology within the construction of the garment without the need for external devices or controls.
Working with two globally recognized financial technology (fintech) companies ensures that CashCuff® cannot be skimmed, should the customer loose the chip it can be deactivated in seconds, in the unlikely event that someone did manage to use your CashCuff® without your knowledge, because it is a pre-pay system that you control, the financial exposure to you and your money is contained.
