No more pocket squares/french cuffs - Esquire - Page 3

post #31 of 53
I think cufflinks on 20-somethings looks pretty obnoxious. Other than that, I don't mind

All the more reason for Kent Wang to take out a few full-color glossies in Esquire.

For example, a damsel in distress is less likely to dab herself with a man's tie.

They also advocate for the return of the white shirt (which I didn't realize ever went away), striped and ancient madder ties, simple watches and gray suits.

So, will you be giving up your pocket squares and cufflinks until the next economic boom?

I'm curious what everyone thinks.

What do they say about hemlines?

Being a 20-something don't wear them that often.

I do agree that when I see cuff links on most 20-somethings it tends to be a part of an overall obnoxious look. However I believe that links can still be worn tastefully.

You cheated and looked at the other half of the photo:

Attachment 31500

Captioned, "The bright young man at the left is a bit too obviously the young alumnus for our private taste, and we have a sneaking hunch that the lowering of his right arm would reveal some collegiate gadget on his watch chain. But that is poking our big nose in where it doesn't belong, since our function is simply that of serving up the facts, and it is a fact beyond dispute that a great many young men in business like to carry over the campus manner for a few years after graduation." No cufflinks there.

I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to buy that book, turn to that page while I'm on the train, and burst out laughing (a la Robert De Niro - Goodfellas); flashing my striped french cuffs & cufflinks as I wipe tears of laughter away with a nice pocket square.

I dunno if you'd be laughing so hard if you pay money for that book. You might feel more like you're getting your shine box.

They are mistaking minimizing for simplifying.
