Nah, one IB internship was enough for me, but I do work in finance...and thats just BS.
I wore french cuffs, I wore barrel cuffs, my shirts were conservative, and I even wore brown shoes.
No one gave a shit so long as I produced the required models/pitchbooks on time.
As long as you wear a normal shirt with non retarded cufflinks (yes those gold naked lady cuffs qualify as retarded), no one cares...especially as an associate.
hell, the guys in my group were lucky enough to find a shirt that didn't have coffee stains on it, much less give a shit about what type of cuffs they had.
