Some people unbutton one button on the cuff as a way to show the world that they have working buttons. Personally I just don't care. I didn't even ask for them on that custom job above.

@EliodA yes certainly. Link? and price?

 

I bought it quite a few years back, so I don't have a link and I don't even know if it's still available, TBH. I found a pic of me wearing it. As you can see the pattern is really small, maybe smaller than you're looking for? Anyway, micro pindot ties shouldn't be too hard to find, I guess.

Do some roll them back?...yes. I've see a few guys do it and pull it off with style. Joseph Abboud mentioned in his bio that he would "go into work, unbutton his cuffs, roll back the sleeves and begin designing clothing"

In fairness, look what he's come up with ...

Ehmm, no, sorry man... I'm too attached to that tie (excuse the pun :p)

Too bad about the weather SB, the city really comes to life when the sun is out.

As it is with many other things in menswear, the working cuffs are a reminiscence of traditional methods. It goes back to the time when fine peeps used to wear shirts with detachable collars and cuffs - changing the later for dinner, for example. In order not to have to remove the jacket, they simply unbottened the jacket sleeve, rolled them up a bit, replaced their shirt cuffs and buttoned their sleeves again. 

 

Nowadays, you´d probably don´t wear this kind of shirting anymore, so you wouldn´t need that function - from my pov, it´s still a nice detail and i like them them to be working. On the plus side, you can create a "signature" button composition (on my 4 button jackets, the second button always is unbuttoned ;-))

if you like slimmer sleeves on your jackets, then working buttonholes are useful. I have a couple suit jackets where I need to unbutton the first button or two to allow room for French cuffs.

What does everyone wear for casual rain jackets? Mid or light weight.

Maybe this one?

Any input on these shades? Worth exploring the more substantial pair in link? Other suggestions for my facial type?

Sunglasses fits not compelling enough for Noodlers' feedback? It's hard to be objective looking at one's own face.

My face is fairly narrow at the top, so I tend to go for narrower frames (derp). There is also a similar pair I'm considering, with a slightly more substantial construction and just a few mm wider http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/eyewear/noblesse-oblige-sunglasses-in-tortoise-brown.html. Not sure I like that my eyes are so visible through these. I thought part of the idea was to retain an air of mystery (and also to be able to do a little clandestine ogling when appropriate). Thoughts?

You're probably not getting any love here because the focus is the business wardrobe (and I imagine to many sunglasses are anathema to CBD).

 

But, for what it's worth I think they look good.

Late reply, but too low, IMO.  Suit?
