This look sounds terribly affected-looking to me. Why would anyone ever wear cufflinks in a way such that they fail to serve their sole function?
I have to agree with this. I would definitely not wear the cufflinks, and I would certainly not wear matching shoes and knots. The whole idea with this look is to look a little dishevelled, to not match. Think waking up to go to breakfast the morning after a big event. The tux shirt is thrown on over a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers as an afterthought because it is a little cold out. Either that, or you are going to an underground club in the Village to hear some god-awful trendy band, and you are going for a punk vibe. If you are going to match things, you really shouldn't be wearing a tux shirt, or any other shirt with French cuffs, with jeans at all.
