i once read an article on how there are certain areas in an outfit that draw peoples eyes more than others...for instance, where jacket/collar/tie come together, or shirt/belt/trousers, or to lesser extent, trousers/socks/shoes. but the one that intrigued me most was the suit/shirt/cuff/watch combination. i find myself not wearing suits as often as i like and in general being a lot more casual...a lot of jeans especially to bars and bar/clubs. what kind of interesting cuff styles are there that I could pull off without having to wear a jacket or would look appropriate even if the shirt was untucked (rare but occuring). i would post this in the street wear section but i've found the regulars in here are more opinionated and the topics are more creative

That's cos we have Eric Glennie. He's sure to have some never-before-seen-or-even-imagined ideas on cuff styles ...

The concept of "points of interest" on a person is pretty interesting. Effectively, what you have said is the "intersection" where several fabrics/textures/colours come together make for spots which people will notice. That means, hands/wrists, neck/face, possibly center chest and feet. Maybe movement could be factored in? Is an area that tends more often to be in motion, i.e. hands/wrists, more or less noticeable than others and how would that affect what you wear?

Anyway, as for cuff-styles, some people like having the insides of their cuffs done with a different fabric, I've seen paisleys used a lot. I've never noticed the difference between someone wearing a cuff with square edges or round edges. You can have a monogram, but it looks cheesy. Well chosen buttons are always nice, I do like crows-foot stitching on the few occasions I've seen it. I have a button up shirt that has elasticated jersey-style cuffs which is sort of interesting. Of course, whether you need these embellishments or not is another story. I guess you shouldn't forget about your choice of watch and/or jewelery either.
