tbh tho, i used to keep one unbuttoned, now i close em.
The unbuttond cuff is so common that I bought a (cheap) cotton sport coat last summer and it's got all working buttons/buttonholes except the last one wich has the buttonhole closed to keep it unbuttoned...
Of course I opened the hole and closed the button.
Yeah, this has gotten really common, and it really sucks. Makes it very difficult and expensive to change the sleeve length, so if it doesn't fit perfectly right off the rack, you are SOL.
I actually do it more for the effect of the cuffs to flare out a little bit at the end of the sleeve rather than for just showing off...
for the record, i love functional cuffs. open or closed, they just look better. besides the spreez.
you cant tell me this is not a thousand times better than a non functional cuff.
From Friday IIRC, forgot to post it. Shirt's a blue OCBD, in case it's not obvious given the lighting/blurriness:
Steekjes, you need snuff suede Tetbury's.
dat is een uitstekend idee. het is al op mijn short list.
that or the alden unlined chukka.
don't get the unlined chukkas.
i think they're too unstructured to work with dressier pants - they really look best in super casual pants or jeans
Agreed that they are better. I love them, and almost all of my jackets have them. But for pete's sake, keep the buttons closed unless you are, like, delivering a baby or something. It's just gauche.
good tip, thanks. ill keep it in mind when im really to kop. who knows, i may have turned to the dark side by then.
lol, gauche, probably, but its also fun sometimes.
IST - blue and green is one of my favorite color combinations.
