Mailbag: Cufflink Alternatives

Voxo asks: "I read that wearing unbuttoned French cuffs can give you a rakish edge. It just seems sloppy to me. What do you think?" Answer: Your instincts serve you well; this is about as cool as leaving your fly open. If you think it's a little too dressy for you to wear cufflinks with your French cuffs (or "double-cuffs" as the British call them), it's perfectly acceptable to go with a simple silk or elastic knot instead. Shown: Thomas Pink Cuff Knots, $10.
