My problem is that most of my "good" shirts I bought for work, where I always wear a tie and suit/sportscoat. Allmost all of these shirts have French cuffs. Where I go dancing (mainly tango), the atmosphere is far more casual than at work, so I feel odd wearing a suit or even a sports jacket, or a tie. And I cannot stand wearing a shirt with French cuffs and metal cufflinks without a tie and suit (or, at least, a sportscoat). I did not know that there were rules about it, I just felt that it looked strange. I understand that this time, my feelings appear to be in line with the rules. Unfortunately, this means that I cannot use my favourite shirts when I go dancing.
