    Fortunately he won't be wandering the City or CW in those. He'll stick to Baker St. Hopefully.

    Be fair. Gok didn't pioneer the style. I look at Gok and do a double take.

    Most of their stuff is a bit fashion-forward and not great quality - square-toed, thin-soled shoes with corrected grain leather - but they do a few good pairs. The Barkers they sell are quite nice, as are some of their casual shoes, but for formal shoes I'd go to somewhere like Charles Tyrwhitt or any of the department stores that sell Grenson, Cheaney, Crockett & Jones, Church's, etc.

    So I got my stuff. Two suits, two pairs of shoes, several ties and shirts, etc... .

    What do people think about bags in the sense of document bags (is that the name)? I heard someone say on this forum some IBs hand some out on the first day? If so, is it actually advisable to use those? Oh - intern here btw.

    You won't need a document bag - you won't be taking any documents in/out of the office.

    Useful to have a hold-all for spare shirts, a tie, gym kit, squash racket, etc. Some firms give out these, and I think it's fine to use it, but others think you shouldn't. Up to you.

    I've got three. They fit well and feel nice but are a bit of a pain to iron

    Is wearing a barrel-cuff shirt not flattering at all? I personally hate to wear double-cuff shirts. It's cumbersome to wear, incredibly bothersome when typing on a keyboard, and it just seems to pompous/flashy/showy.

    What's your take on this? I noticed that quite a lot of guys wear double-cuff shirts in London...whereas it's generally reserved for more senior professionals here in NYC...

    Got to decide, which is better suited for London (though, I am completely aware that it's up to me).. what do you think?

    Double cuffs are smarter and pretty much the norm in the city, however most places you can get away with single cuff shurts if you want to.

    Yea...what's their [double-cuff shirts] appeal? Is there a stigma that comes with wearing a barrel-cuff shirt??

    They're more formal, more traditional and a bit flashier. It's like 2-button suits are considered more formal than one-button ones, or Oxford shoes are considered more formal than Derbys (Bluchers in American English) or loafers. There's no real objective reason that they are, it's just how things have developed.

    Its different in the US, where the standard seems to be single-cuff (which I prefer) and wide collar spreads.

    i suppose you could just consider it stylish on this side of the pond at the moment, maybe in 50 years people will look back on it and cringe like we cringe female shoulder-padded suits and baggy 4-button brown suits for men (although i doubt it)

    anyone fancy explaining fashion or style?
