Double cuff shirts

Friends, what is your view on wearing DC shirts on weekends, with a sweater, or with an odd jacket? As I am known for my minimalism, I would hate to reblud my wardrobe with an additional slate of button cuff shirts. I also have gotten used to wearing double cuffs, so wearing a button cuff feels both too tight and too short.

Easier with a jacket than a jumper IMO. Go for it if you like wearing double cuffs all the time. Silk knots might be easier with a jumper than other links.

Re: Double cuff shirts

Yes, that is true. They are especially comfortable because they stretch a bit.

Re: Double cuff shirts

With a sweater? I am not so sure, I only wear a wafer Ole Mathieson watch with jumpers anyway as I like them tight around the cuff, so it wouldn't really work for me. And wouldn't in stretch the jumper?

I would definitely sport a double cuff shirt with a tank top sweater and at weekends, if I was going somewhere, not for lounging around the house though.

Re: Double cuff shirts

So the question is: does one have to stick to the igent AAAAC rules to wear clothes in their designated context or to hell with it?

Re: Double cuff shirts

No, my position was one of stretching the fabric and losing shape. Is it a risk, or not?

Checking it out today with a grey M&S jumper and cufflinked shirt. I suppose the knack is to keep the cuffed part of the shirt exposed.

Yes pull the jumper's sleeve cuff from the shirts cuff so that 2cm of shirt are visible, and a glimpse of cufflink
