    We haven't dressed up in Vegas in a long time. For our next trip we are thinking about dressing up one night. I like wearing cuff links, are they still popular?

    As a SM for the Mens Wearhouse, your thread grabbed my attention. To answer your question, I would suggest that although we do sometimes still recommend French cuff shirts depending on our customer's general use or ocassion, they really haven't been in demand over the past couple years. People become more and more casual, and links are really only considered for formal (ie. Black Tie) events.

    Now, cuffs/links aside... I would recommend looking into shirts that have a wide/extreme wide collar. These shirts have most popular in Mens fashion, and our newest CK shirts can be found at TMW.

    CEO of my company fancies the French cuffs. I see men wearing them now and then. There was a fashionsita guy that I used to work with that had long arms. He would buy the shorter sleeved French cuffed shirts and not fold them and wear 2 pairs of cuff links.

    Yes they are. When I go to Vegas, I split time between these two pairs

    I wouldn't worry about what fashion "experts" say. Fashions change so they can keep selling new stuff. French cuffs/cuff links always look good.

    "Are cufflinks still in?"

    That depends - In what? Fashion, maybe not. Style, always!

    +1. Fashion changes. Style doesn't. Rock those cuff links.

    I hope you're wearing some nice leather soled shoes, like Allen Edmonds, and not some rubber soled slip on's with those cuff links though! :)

    Oh... and wear some fun socks as well!!

    In Vegas, anything goes. Will everyone appreciate the extra touch cufflinks bring? No. But you will know and be satisfied and that's all that matters.

    Out here in Nevada, cufflinks are absolutely "in" for any one who is any one or wants to be someone or look like someone.

    Just like anything else make sure they complement your appearance and you will be fine. People can look sharp in just about anything, it's the overall look that matters. For a casual shirt i always use no cuff but for dress shirts i have some that requires cuff and some that don't. I do however tend to lean towards cufflinks whenever i dress to the nines. If you looking to get some new cuff or other attires check out Stitched at Cosmo, its an awesome store for menswear.

    This thread got me thinking where my cufflinks were. After some searching, I did find 4 pair that probably haven't been worn in probably 20 years. Of course I haven't worn a suit in about that same amount of time. Sportcoat and tie is about as dressy as I get these days.

    I never thought cuff links were something that were in or out. Always thought of them being just like a belt or something. A necessary tool at times that can also look good.

    I do hate it when I'm in a rush and throw on a French cuff shirt inadvertently and then have to decide whether it'd be faster to change or stick in some cuff links. Or just say fuck it and leave my cuffs flapping open like a drunk in the middle of a bender.

    I have no idea what's in or out in men's wear. But, I will say...if you feel polished wearing them, you should wear them. My husband isn't a cufflink wearer, but, he does like to wear a nice tie tack.

    I have a hand in the jewelry business and have to say that new cufflinks barely sell. However what is relatively hot right now are vintage items, cufflinks included. Anything from the Mad Men era has been popular for the past five years or so and continues to sell well.

    Not sure what's 'in' but how can you do your shirt sleeves up without cuff links?

    I would wear a shirt with buttons on the sleeves. Am I missing something here?
