What footwear would that be, such that no cuffs works well?

Wow, that brought simultaneous, instantaneous responses from some veterans. Thanks.

 

Manton, has your view on cuffs changed over time? I have a vague memory of you looking more favorably on no-cuffs in the 789th rendition of this discussion in SF.

I think I have two pairs of trousers where the tailor said the cloth was just too thick to take cuffs.

I believe this is the 1,832nd time Style Forum has taken up this topic.

What fabric is too thick for cuffs? puzzled.gif I've seen cuffs in leather pants.

I have issues with heavy tweeds being too thick to properly cuff. Also if the trouser narrows too much at the bottom cuffing can be difficult and unsightly.

Don't know about the triple patch + white shirt + wedding tie. (I think that look is a little too sharp / dressy for teh patch.)

But everything fits really well.

Out of curosity, are you the best dressed construction worker or the most hands on developer ever? From your WAYWRN photos, those seem to be the only two options?
Thanks. Tie is more of a gingham like pB mentioned, and it seemed casual enough alongside everything else. I don't think I own any silk wedding ties.
As far as the jobsite, I get razzed less than I get asked where I got something. Nothing's out of place, surprisingly enough - everything's just more wrinkled and dirty. The only "casual" thing you don't see are khakis; they are considered too nice.
