When it comes to men’s fashion, cufflinks hold a special place. No suits are complete without a pair of trendy cufflinks. As usual, the French, in terms of fashion, showed that they are second to none. So, every shirt that comes with French cuffs requires cufflinks. Buttons are for the common and unfashionable, but for those with taste, cufflinks are what matters. The cufflinks, though for the most part remains out of sight, is still a fashion accessory that is as important as, say, socks. Cufflinks owns its origins to the ‘cuff strings’ that were used to tie the shirt sleeves. Then came colored glass buttons that were linked by short chains. This gave way to two heavily decorated studs, mostly diamonds, which was linked by a gold chain. Thus was born the cuff link, which is now available in numerous types of materials and designs. Cufflinks are worn with shirts that have buttonholes on both sides of the cuff but without any buttons. With cufflink nowadays being more of a style statement than a necessity, making your own cufflinks is an excellent way to show your taste without being heavy on the pocket. You can create attractive cufflinks that not only complements your suit but also shows off your attitude.
