    Bubbler, if you write for your paper, the way you do on this board, just tell me the paper you work for and I'll start subscribing. No names, just your paper. Just PM it.
    Why the hate for French cuffs? Would it be better if I called them Freedom Cuffs?
    To clarify. The purpose of me going there on Friday are appointment interviews with a company CEO and the venture capital guy. You don't wear khakis when you deal with multi-millionaires. You need to bring it, so, in my world, that's a suit, with a good shirt and, on occasion, that's a shirt with French cuffs. Just something about cuff links that I like and it's a little detail that people notice and that I notice. Sort of like a good watch or expensive shoes.
    The PR chickie is just an added bonus.

    Then the cuffs might be appropriate, but you should wear a tie.

    It's not hate for French cuffs; it's just that it doesn't work with with the no-tie look.

    I just think the suit-with-no-tie look is too affected.The French cuffs just amploify that.
    Too self-consciously hip.
