    Isn't this Tom Ford's singnature look? He always wears french cuffs and no tie. He also unbuttons the top two or three buttoms, which is definitely an optional part of the look :)

    French cuffs with jeans?
    I say that is mighty fine. Its an interesting look giving the whole ensemble just a touch of being more formal.

    A good option is to wear it with the knot links (cuff links made in balls of thread), these are usually not as formal as metal cuff links.

    My opinion hasn't changed. Although I think it's fine if others wear fc without a tie or with jeans, I would not.

    Yes, this would looks great. Most fashion experts prefer that you wear a tie when wearing cufflinks. You can wear a French cuffed shirt without a tie if you also leave the cufflinks off. Just roll up the sleves a little below your elbow and leave the top button unbuttoned. This way you will still see the French cuffs. The following site has good advice on formal attire: http://www.blacktieguide.com/ This site is good for learning how to match your tie and the dress code for neckties: http://www.ties-necktie.com/ten-gold...g-clothing.php Another thing: Keep your shirts ironed! French cuffs are elegant and classy, and so should be the shirt... I hope this helps, R.
