When to wear cufflinks?

The wearing of cufflinks started somewhere in the 17th century. In the 17th and 18th century reserved for the elite, in the 19th century embraced by the public. In the 1950s they could really be found on almost every dress shirt. In the swinging sixties, they became the style feature of the stylish, fashion-conscious man. After that, their popularity declined. Today, many men again see cufflinks as a stylish accessory that can subtly add a personal touch to a shirt in an instant.

 When to wear cufflinks

A dinner jacket outfit is not complete without a pair of cufflinks. Choose a classic, elegant model. Festive and ceremonial occasions also lend themselves perfectly to wearing cufflinks. Again, it's best to choose a classic, modest design. For less formal festivities you can also wear novelty cufflinks. For weddings, for example, slip a 'Best Man' cufflink through your cuffs or wear a pair of champagne bottles to your shirt on a night out.

For the office, a simple silver pair is a stylish way to stand out from your colleagues. Going for colour? Then make sure the colour of your cufflinks is either reflected in your tie or harmonises well with your shirt. Are you wearing a light blue shirt and a dark blue tie? With a dark blue pair of cufflinks your outfit is well balanced.

Excellent tie, silky soft material and extra long as advertised. Allows taller folk to tie knots that use more length.
Thrilled with the tie….absolutely perfect colour and quality. Service and delivery were without fault. About to order two further ties!

Excellent service and quality. I ordered replacement leather ends for braces. They arrived within a few days and I am very satisfied.
Sometimes the quality of on line purchases is not what is claimed. This company seems to be honest and what it says is what you get.

I attend many motorsport awards yearly and wanted some braces that were in fitting. These were just prefect.
Quality is of the highest standard and beautifully made. Very pleased with my purchase.
Order process was simple, delivered in a timely manner and communication was good.
I’d highly recommended and would definitely order again in future.

I ordered a pair of braces for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. He was over the moon with them and they are of really lovely quality. The colours in the two-tone set I chose go really well together and he\'s already worn them multiple times over the holidays. Delivery was also very quick!
