French cuffs have an elegance and beauty about them that the utilitarian barrel cuff will never possess.
(But only if they're done up)
Too too true. The contradiction is, most cufflinks sold are cheap...ie cheap in look if not in price. My guess is that they are bought on impulse but don't get much use. A beautiful french cuff/shirt etc needs to be complemented by real quality cufflinks - classic silver etc - not gimmiks or bling.
On ya fxh. Yeah its true I'm yet to fully grow up - never quite left adolscence (deplorable). However I would like to fudge it & dress like a grownup for clients. CUFFLINKS: yes...need lots feed back here...I will unveil my own products in due course (already being made and online) but want to get loads unbiased ideas - rather than just comment on existing stuff. GO GO GO
So you're ditching the jeans and tee for a french cuff + bling?
I think i have a french shirt from about 10 years ago buried in my wardrobe and also a dinner shirt with studs.
I can see the value of the bling factor on the dinner shirt however I much prefer the simplicity and practicality of a nice button for every day wear.
