Make it simple but significant.
Cufflinks do just that.
Cuff links are such a simple thing, a peg designed to hold your cuff together and yet they can say so much. Cufflinks are essential with all double cuff shirts which have no buttons, such as formal wear, black tie and white tie, business shirts and with some stylish casual wear.
Cufflinks, a wrist watch and a pocket square may be the only personal styling in view while wearing formal attire, so it is important to make your statement. With thousands of designs for the visible part of the cuff link available, these come usually decorated or monogrammed to reflect your hobbies, association or maybe just inlaid with gemstones.
What design to choose? Do you go with the novelty cufflink that says whatever you want from “Best man” to “Kiss me quick". You may choose the cuff link with a character, flag or object which has an association with you or your genre. This is a stylish approach giving other guests an insight into your interests and an opening point in conversations when greeting other guests.
The designer cufflinks made by many fashion houses can add style to your black tie attire without making a statement, ideal for formal black tie events which have a more formal expectation. Traditionally it was considered important to match the metal of your cufflinks with other jewellery such as a wrist watch, shirt studs, belt buckles, tie bar or rings. Style experts prescribe gold to be worn during the daytime and silver for evening wear but neither expectation is considered critical, with the exception of the most formal black tie events.
Cuff links can take on more meaning when wearing a Fancy Back Shirt. A stylish Gent will round his outfit off with his accessory’s, so matching your cuff links with the pattern on your Fancy back shirt does just that, All our Fancy Back Shirts come with a pocket square made of the same patterned fabric to add a subtle insight before your jacket is removed.
