Should a jacket ALWAYS be worn with a french cuffed shirt? I've seen a lot of casual shirts lately with french cuffs and would like to know if a jacket is neccessary
Subject of much debate. According to tradition, yes, double cuffs are formal, and reserved for dress shirts - w/ suit/tie/jacket. That said, you're right, a lot of labels are making casual
shirts with french cuffs, terms that are generally mutually exclusive. The past couple of years have seen the rise of many people wearing double cuffs without suits, jackets, or ties (or cufflinks, apparently). Nothing wrong with breaking some rules, but many people think this look, as a trend, is pretty played out.
