Personally I think they look kind of cool in picture but I don't have any. I wouldn't be opposed to trying it. I've heard they're a huge pain to clean though - if you don't have somebody good, they'll probably screw it up.

They maybe worthy of consideration for your Black Tie casual project.

Yes. Opinions?

Some may consider them a bit showy perhaps, but I don't have a problem with them.

I wouldn't wear them myself though.

I'm working on growing a couple of inches so that I can get an extra height consideration to make up for it.

It's in the works. Had an aborted attempted, but will continue to persevere. Looking for the right silk for such a shirt.

Something that may shock and horrify you. Click on the link in my sig at your own risk. Let us speak of it no further in the good taste thread.

It's a thread unbelragazzo created. The way I understand it, it's an acknowledgement that many of the aesthetic considerations of black tie are quite relevant in terms of what looks good at night, just that the formality scale has now changed.

Therefore it is an attempt to find a casual way of adopting the aesthetics of black tie without looking out of place in non-black tie occasions.

So basically a dark suit and white shirt. Binary tie. Me.

American Gent, here are a couple of pictures of the turn-back cuffs. You can make the call as to whether you feel they're showy.

You can't really say they are showy, only to the fact that they are less common.

They seem like they'd be a nuisance.

Cocktail cuffs gracefully combine the informality of barrel cuffs and the hassle of French cuffs with the added benefit of novelty for its own sake.

The 'best' posts are those which allow the reader to infer two different meanings and which would allow the poster to point out that he means the opposite when the going gets hot. biggrin.gif

Damn politicians.

I had to have them, then I had to get rid of them. Visually interesting and for me, impractical. Or, to use Doc's word a nuisance.
