I have worn a dark green jacket that had gold buttons with a light blue/black/white striped casual french cuff shirt that had matching silk knot cufflinks and I thought it looked good. But otherwise, how should it be done with metal links?
Okay, I know you should be able to wear cufflinks with just a jacket and all that, but perhaps the fact that this is a jacket, and there's so much already going on with it, makes this a prime candidate for barrel cuffs instead of doubles?
