    do you wear french cuffs?

    Okay, so a few months ago I was in a hurry and bought a couple of nice dress shirts from Marshall Fields (now known as Macy's in Chicago). Anyway, after I got home, I tried them on and realized that one of them had French Cuffs. (Still not sure how that happened). I was too lazy to bring it back and now so much time has past, that I no longer have the receipt. This shirt was like $100, so I hate to have it just collecting dust in my closet.

    My question is, do any of you wear shirts with French Cuffs? Can you only wear them with a suit, or can you wear them with a nice tie and sports jacket? It's a really nice shirt and I do have some nice cufflinks from my dad, but I've just never worn this type of thing before.

    Can any of you "metro's" help me out

    I must admit, the title of this thread scared me, and I feared that you were going to be banned from RZ after I read the first sentence...

    I don't often wear dress shirts but I don't see why you couldn't wear the shirt anywhere you wanted if you like it and you find it comfortable.

    Re: do you wear french cuffs?

    Well, in the 'old days' french cuffs were only worn with a suit and never a sport coat. At least that's the way I was taught. After wearing them awhile I took a job that required me to travel a good bit so I dumped them for barrel cuffs so I didn't have to worry about packing cuff links. In the 70's dress wear loosened up a lot so I tried to get away from wearing a coat and tie as much as possible to where today, it's a few times a year thing.

    These days I've seen younger men wearing a dress shirt with french cuffs (no links), tails out and jeans. They are young enough to get away with it but on me it'd look pretty silly.

    French cuffs are very "in" right now. I wear them with or without a jacket. I suggest you buy cufflinks that match your watch...either silver or gold colored
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I wear cufflinks at least twice a week. You can wear them with or without a jacket, or even without dress pants, as someone pointed out.

    Just get a set that is as neutral as possible. THey can be expensive, so I like ot have just a few pairs. If you buy one for just a specific outfit, then you are stuck with a pair that you can only wear once or twice.

    I like the brushed steel ones- they go with everything.

    Dillard's is having a huge sale this weekend- look for the pink ticketed items and you get an additional 40% off the reduced price, if they have them where you live.

    My boyfriend will only wear French cuffs and his expensive little cuff links. No regular shirts for him. He's such a snob. I'll ask him about your question tonight.
