I have gotten to the point where I am phasing out all barrel-cuffed shirts from my business wardrobe. I just don't feel "dressed" anymore unless I have French Cuffs-they just give that extra-sharp edge. So here is what I am wondering: Why so many warnings about not wearing them to interviews and meetings with conservative clients? I happen to be in Manhattan and see the majority of men wearing them, so the guys I see may be more fashion-forward than the average guy, but I also see men all over the media wearing them all them all the time. For chrissakes, Geroge W. Bush wears them all the time-isn't he supposed to be the standard bearer for arch-conservatism? So is there really still a stigma with French Cuffs, or have they finally just turned into a standard of business dress?
