I would never wear French cuffs without a jacket, or with jeans or chinos, but have worn them in the evening with a velvet jacket and tie and grey wool trousers. Just now I was debating doing the same thing but with a navy blazer, in the afternoon, and dialed down to silk knots, so I googled "french cuffs without a suit" seeking input and this thread came up. It's a tough call, but I'm inclining against it, if for no other reason than so I won't be self-conscious about it...
23, New York. Have not owned a pair since I was a sophomore, and plan on keeping it that way. When I go to the beach I wear boat shoes.

I hope this story ends with you happily married using a different ring, because otherwise the moral here sounds a lot like "don't sell your...

Do you think I'm not thrifting, even though I want to? Of course not. What I prefer to do with...
Quote: Originally Posted by archetypal_yuppie I'd guess that the majority of people are not of the thrifter variety, and thus not being a thrifter does not necessarily make one a snob. I don't think a distaste for used items or wasting hours that I consider more productively spent on other things than finding bargains is snobby either. Used is a potential can of worms I prefer to avoid (hygene? wear and tear?), and I choose to use my time on other...
Quote: Originally Posted by aleeboy I would disagree with this. Boat shoes look good in shorts only. Only true with a break! If you're willing to show some ankle, you can wear boat shoes with pants. Personally I find most things labeled "driving shoes" to be on the ugly side (techy/nubby soles that climb up your heels), but some of them just look like loafers. In which case you might as well get loafers instead.

No thanks. It might satisfy a yearly suit purchase, but what about shoes, socks, shirts, undershirts/wear, ties, overcoat, belt/links? And oh yeah, everything else you wear on weekends/athletic/nighttime? Forget building up a...
Quote: Originally Posted by SkinnyGoomba Thats exactly my point, even living on the cheap in NYC is expensive, if not impossible. You'll never understand it until you've done it, you want to go out for a night at a good restaurant expect to spend $80 for a couple if you dont have any drinks. Rather chose a diner? Ok $50. Pay your car? $25 for a couple hours, $40 overnight. Dont have a card, then expect to shell out $6-$15 or more to be driven in a...
I reccomend a light cotton flannel. It's Fitzgerald-approved!

For now I've got some Original Penguin ones I picked up at a discount last year, a little like this: but maroon. I like them fine except for the penguin embroidered on the leg. It's subtle though.
