Off The Cuff

 |

As an accessory in men’s fashion, cufflinks have been around since the early 1600’s when men would make a primitive link to hold their shirt together.  Instead of using ribbon or lace, the men of this time period would fashion a link out of metal or wood.  Fast forward to the roaring 20’s when the “t-post” with a flip hinge was invented creating a high fashion look as well as functionality.  Through the 50’s and 60’s, cufflinks were the rage and became the go-to accessory for men.  As we entered the 70’s and a more casual look prevailed, cufflinks were much less popular.  After taking a few decades off from this look,  we’re starting to see a resurgence in this accessory as a fashion statement and way to express one’s personality.  From golf ball cufflinks to gemstones and everything in between, cufflinks have become a hot look in fashion right now.  Read on for some of our favorite looks.
