If Capaldi weren't doing the Time Warp and flashing the red lining, his outfit wouldn't look far off the drab dark gear that dominates London these days. He'd look less conspicuous there than Matt's tweedy garb, I'd suggest.
I'm wearing flannels without cuffs today. They hang fine. But I prefer only a shiver of break and a slimmer trou, so it all fits together.
I like cuffs on others, just prefer the sleeker look for myself.
