Shindeco: Bravissimo! I'm a recent member, but I wanted to compliment you on your brilliant "Formal Wear Primer" post. That said, I would like to pose a question and pass along a comment: The Question: Isn't .5" of [shirt] cuff exposition considered de rigueur? The sleeves of your tailcoat and white dinner jacket appear to be a bit too abbreviated as you appear to be showing upwards of ~1" cuff beneath your jacket sleeves. The comment: Recently, while attending a black tie affair, I was chastized by a well-respected fashion maven for appearing in formal garb donning my usual pair of small, designer spectacles. He indicated that this was akin to wearing one's cell phone [as a presumed fashion accessory] dangling openly from one's waistcoat pocket. I of course begged this wag's pardon for my apparent lapse of sartorial judgement and sashayed away in bewildered confusion. It wasn't until I viewed your photos that I got the point. There's just something about our (relatively funky) 21st-century eyeglasswear that just doesn't seem right atop the timeless understatement of classic formal wear.
