Cufflinks may be a very small item, but they can make a huge difference to the way that other people see you and react to you. Most people have heard the saying “dress for the job you want, and not the job that you’ve got” and it is very true. If you are rising up the ranks in your company, or if you want to, a pair of cufflinks can actually make a very big difference as to how quickly you can go.
This is because the right pair of cufflinks can stand out and convey the impression that you don’t simply dress in the morning. You dress to impress, because you know that you have got places to go and people to see. In fact, some studies have been done which show that most people perceive a man wearing cufflinks to be more competent, and therefore better at the job, when he dresses smartly and is wearing a pair of cufflinks. Whether that is true or not doesn’t matter: it’s the perception which is important.
However, there is one thing to watch out for, and we have said this elsewhere. When you wear a pair of cufflinks to work, don’t go there with a snazzy pair with gold and diamonds and outdo the boss! Of course, if you are the boss, you can wear whatever you want, and again an expensive-looking pair will add to the perception of you being king of the jungle.
This works just as well if you are not the CEO but a manager somewhere further down the line. You could be a department manager, for instance, but wearing a pair of cufflinks will still mark you out as the “boss” of your particular part of the company.
Furthermore, cufflinks have always been associated with royalty and with wealth. When they first arrived on the fashion scene in the 16th century, they were often commissioned to commemorate a special event such as the birth of a prince or the wedding of a special relative, and they used gemstones and silver and gold which the “hoi polloi”, or general public, could hardly afford. That connection of being someone of importance still continues today.
You Don’t Have To Go To Jermyn Street Or Saville Row
There are an incredible number of different designs of cufflinks available on the market today, and you don’t have to go to Jermyn Street or Saville Row to find them. Just take a look on Google. You can spend what you like on cufflinks as well. Many are £50 or less for a pair, although some can be at what you might consider the ridiculous end of the scale when they include such things as rubies or diamonds in the face design.
At Wimbledon Cufflink Company, you will be pleased to learn that, when it comes to pricing, we are at the lower end of the scale. That doesn’t mean you won’t get a choice of many stunning different designs, because we love to give our customers what they want to see: ingenious designs that mark a man out as being special.
Our Heritage Range is very special, including, as it does, designs which mark out symbols of a distant age such as our cufflinks with a nod to traditional folklore and times gone past. Take our Welsh Dragon Cufflinks, for instance. We have used the dragon who was the battle standard of the legendary King Arthur who led the battles against the Saxons back in the 5th and 6th centuries. Our Welsh Dragon Cufflinks depict the dragon in gold on a background of red. The Welsh Dragon is on the arms of Cardiff, the capital of Wales.
We have many more cufflinks in our Heritage Range, and they celebrate the history of England, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as Wales. Other Heritage cufflinks depict similar historic figures in other countries such as the head of George Washington, the American Eagle, the Statue of Liberty, the Canadian Maple Leaf, and we even have a more modern American one which depicts the colours of the National Football League.
Not only do we have a huge range of different designs of cufflinks, but we will also make cufflinks to any specific pattern that you wish, so you can have your cufflinks made with your company logo on them, for example. That will really impress not only your staff, but your customers as well.
