Q: When we went to a black-tie party recently, my fiance looked terrific. But instead of wearing studs in his formal shirt, he wore it buttoned. He had on beautiful cuff links he inherited from his granddad. I would like to give him a set of studs for Christmas. Then he'll have them for our wedding in June and for years to come. Do I have to buy matching cuff links, too?A: Some men don't wear studs in a formal shirt; the unadorned look of buttons appeals to them. But to most eyes a pleated-front dress shirt with buttons rather than studs looks undressed, or like something young men wear with jeans.
