    I sometimes wear cufflinks (most of my bespoke shirts are to be used with cufflinks). Usually with some kind of v-neck and to make it not look formal at all i'll throw in some old jeans or something and a screwed up pair of chuck taylor's ehhe.

    I love double cuffed shirts, they look so much cleaner than buttons.
    get a few shirts from http://www.thomaspink.co.uk/ and you will look great.
    Maybe a little OTT from sixth form, but it depends on the type of sixth form...

    I just buy shirts, and if they're double-cuffed I wear cufflinks. If they're buttoned, so be it.

    Go down to the dry cleaners and get it done for 1.50 (washed and ironed). Its easier and quicker.

    Islington is a big place. My bit is the rich bit.

    A three bed room house for nothing less than half a million. If that isn't a rich area, I don't know what is.
