Visiting The Commonly Overlooked Cuff Link

Cuff links are largely overlooked in the entire process of men’s dressing.  While they don’t necessarily make or break a look, they are a welcomed extra on the wrist of any gentleman.

Favourable cuff links

These designs are classic, subtle and classy.  They will blend with most any fabric, and do not consist of flashy metals or tacky designs.  The first four cuff links are Paul Smith’s design; this comes as no surprise.  Paul Smithis a men’s fashion legend and can always be counted on for funky combinations and accessories to make a look.  The silvers, blacks and whites together attain that classic look I spoke of earlier.  The pieces having being colorless also mean the cuff links have versatility, which also means you can save by buying fewer sets of them.

Bank chess classic cuff link (Jos A. Bank; $65), Fleur-de-Lis cuff links (Forzieri; $65)


Cufflinks you must avoid

These are the the tacky uncles of the cuff link family.  Basically any cuff link with a sports team logo, writing, female entertainers, faux jewels or comic book insignias are automatically stricken from your “what to wear” list.  No well put together man should walk around with pirate logo images attached to his suit (not even children!).  It’s beyond tacky, and just plain tasteless.

Well, I do not agree with your comment on tacky uncles of the cufflink family. I think even superhero cufflinks can be appropriate in certain occasions.
