The golden rule: cuff-links should only be worn on shirts with turn-back cuffs. Clearly, these are not to be found universally, necessitating a somewhat different path to cultivated styling. They are an absolute must with dinner jackets: shirts with double cuffs are the standard for special occasions, gala evenings, weddings, premières. The more sophisticated the outfit, the more official the occasion, the more sophisticated the cuff-links may be. Dinner jackets can be matched with cuff-links in gold or platinum, whilst silver or stainless-steel may be worn for daily use, depending on the outfit. Perfectionists co-ordinate the colours of the metals. In other words, a watch in a white metal such as stainless-steel or white gold will be worn with cuff-links of that colour.
