I don't really like closed cuffs without something over it (cardigan, sport coat, suit coat, 3/4 coat), but I have no problem with them being worn without french cuffs or even ties. It works on a case by case basis.

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.

I wear french cuff shirts with everything; suits, sports coats, sweaters, cardigans and I think it looks good. But I wouldn't wear a shirt without anything over it at all, and certainly not with a tie. Don't know and don't care what the rules say about my decisions and tastes, but of course I would if I were to be in a more formal/conservative environment. If you like it, go for it, unless there is a dress code where you are going to wear it which doesn't allow it.

Standard (french cuff) dress shirts do not look good without jacket; however, if they have character, then they can be worn without something over them - the above slim fit shirt is a good example: shirt, french cuffs, beige trousers, burgundy (or black) loafers.

Shirt & tie and no jacket - no no

By the pictures, I've got a decade on Kent. But... that's fair to an extent.

He looks really repulsive; very grotesque.
