For a dude who owns not a single french cuff shirt I sure do own a lot of cuff knots. Why's that? Well, I like to put them into the buttonholes on my jacket lapels. See, some of us who aren't ready for stuff like this still want a little bit of sartorial flair on our lapels. And that's where your friendly, neighborhood cuff knot comes in. Pop one in and you're done. It's that simple. You can go all novelty during these dreary winter months or keep things brooding with dark, solid colors - it's totally up to you. Maybe you want to highlight the fabric in the jacket itself, your trousers or your shirt. It doesn't matter. At the end of the day you're the guy who went that tiny extra step to keep things interesting. And that guy usually does pretty well for himself. Here are some of my more monochromatic F/W sportcoats with that added bit of cuff knot jazz.
