    I tried to cover all possibilities ans then avoid misunderstandings like for exemple people who wear them often (never mind when can be in job or WE) and people who wear them only in job (so often but just for job)

    am I in the minority, or is Ernest perhaps the most annoying person in the world? Im not trying to start some kind of flamefest, but damn it, enough with the insipid polls already. You like cufflinks, wear em. You dont, dont wear em.

    I would also like to see simpler polls. Maybe splitting the poll in two. For next time: Poll 1 - Do you use cufflinks: a) Always b) Sometimes b) Never. Poll 2 - When do you use cufflinks: a) Special Ocassions b) Whenever I use a Suit c) Casually d) all of above e) a + b Just suggestions. I do find a lot of value on these polls. I love them. Thanks for posting it. Post more [​IMG] As for my opinion on cufflinks.... I love them, although I only have three shirts for cufflinks. If I had more, I would use them every time I use a suit or sportscoat.

    If you do not like my polls, do not participate, simple.

    If you do not like my post, post more interesting ones and people will reply to them...

    This is called freedom.

    I guess this is no use to make 2 polls when we can do in one. What is not clear in my poll? Which cas is not in it?

    I do post interesting ones, when I actually have something interesting to say. Unlike you, however, I dont think every thought in my head is fodder for a post or a poll or whatever you feel like droning on about.

    Actually waited until I was 30 years old to start wearing cuff links -- once there, I made up for lost time. ;-)

    When I'm in London (and Europe, in general -- with Italy being a notable exception...), I wear them almost exclusively.

    In Washington, DC, I wear them once or twice a week, but usually not more than that. Depends, too, on whether I'm wearing a suit, or just wearing a SC and slacks.

    I have come to the point now that I do not own button-cuff shirts. Over the past year or so, I have slowly fazed them out and replaced them with French-cuff spread collars. It was not even a conscious decision; each time I donated to goodwill or gave away my clothing to my younger cousin, it was always the button-cuff dress shirts that went. French-cuffs were always more comfortable (as strange as that may sound) and a bit more stately (I, for one, think that an improvement). And since I do not wear jewelry of any kind, save my watches (and I do love my watches [​IMG] ), cuff-links are a welcome addition to my ensembles. By the way, if anyone has or knows of any vintage silver Art Deco cuff-links that are being sold, please email me. I am starting up a collection and would love to add to the four sets I have now.

    I enjoy wearing cufflinks and cuffknots. I also enjoy Ernest's polls and posts -- thanks, Ernest.

    Hi Jofaile. I am like you , I do not own any button cuff shirts and stopped wearing them Long ago. I only own French cuff shirts. I enjoy wearing cufflinks and wear them casually with an open neck shirt as well frequently with Jeans. When it is very hot ,Iwill unfasten the cufflinks(leaving them in the cuffs) and fold the sleeves back twice but I like to leave the Links in when I do that. How do you mean French cuff shirts are more comfortable? Cheers Stuarts8
