And if you want more, you know I’ve got two great options for you. I’ve got a free e-book, 47 pages. It puts you on my email list when you grab it. The link to it is right down there. If you want more of a course, I’ve got a 14-hour audio with 600 pages, 400 images, and it’s something that I do actually give a little bit more support to those guys that support my business here in Wisconsin by purchasing that premium e-book. Okay, so let’s get to cufflinks. To wear cufflinks, you actually have to have a cuff that can take them. So the most common one we’re going to see is the French cuff or the double cuff. It’s called that because literally it doubles over. It’s a heavier cuff. Traditionally, this is seen on more formal shirts. You won’t find this on casual shirts, and if you do, it’s something that’s probably custom-made and it’s breaking a style rule, which I guess if the man knows what he’s doing, more power to him.
It’s a great way to wear a piece of jewelry, which is the cufflink, but the cufflink comes in various levels of formality. And so, I’m going to go ahead and jump to this section. I’m going to give you a good visual. Let me know what you guys think about this in the comments. Without further ado, here we go. All right, so real quick, let’s talk about the varying levels of formality, so you’re going to have the least formal to the most formal in terms of cufflink build. This right here, normally called silk knots, very common, inexpensive, made from a material. As you can see, they’re in a playful color and this would be something that yeah, a lot of guys love this especially the young man. It adds a bit of color to this wardrobe, helps him stand out a bit. At the same time, he can purchase quite a few of them. Now over here, this cufflink right here is the one that you’ll probably see most often and you’ve got a semi piece. This right here is pewter, but we could have silver, gold.
I’ve even seen this with Stormtrooper Head’s Legos. I mean, it runs the gamut, but the thing is it’s actually two separate pieces, so we have the hinge part here that moves and that has been attached to the piece of jewelry. The way that this one works, so let me grab a French cuff right here, fold it over, and we’ve seen these. They slide right in and once they go through, then you would turn that hinge and it stays right there, very simple. Actually, most cufflinks you see out there are going to be this style. Now, this style is technically more formal and that’s because it has no moving parts, usually made from a precious metal. This one’s made from silver and its whole design is to be able to go through the hole and hold it on both ends without having any moving parts. And by the way, this isn’t a rigid system. Oftentimes, you’ll see a cufflink and hear that it’s more formal because of what it’s made from than something over here. But usually, if a cufflink is built to this standard, you’re going to see it’s very high quality, so right there. Now, the last cufflink I’m going to talk about, this one’s unique. This actually I had it made by a craftsman.
It’s got a very unique design. You would even argue perhaps that this one isn’t as formal as this one should be over here, but I put it here because this basically can become an heirloom because it’s a one of a kind piece. So you can see this is how it actually goes on the cuff, very unique, something that I had a gentleman design. And because it’s a one of a kind piece, that’s why I put it over here. So again, the three levels, there you have them or the four levels broken up for you. All right, guys, hopefully that gives you a better overview of cufflinks. There are other styles and other types. You notice almost everything I had there was silver. That’s my personal preference. I’m really not a gold kind of guy. Even my wedding ring is silver, but you can bring in other colors. I’ll probably eventually do a more detailed article on cufflinks that would support the post as well, but let me know what you got in the comments.
