Wearing a pair of cufflinks in the 21st century is perhaps more important than it has ever been if you want to stand out from the masses and progress in your career. Sure, many of the shirts that you can buy today have a single cuff and a button, so you don’t need to use cufflinks. Indeed, with a single button cuff you can’t wear cufflinks because there is no hole through which to slide them on the other side of the cuff!
But when you wear a button cuff shirt, you just look like everyone else who is doing the same. You most certainly don’t stand out from the crowd because you are part of the crowd!
When you wear a shirt with double cuffs and cufflinks, you have choices. Many choices. There are almost endless designs of cufflinks available: just Google “buy cufflinks” and you will see what we mean.
The Right Choices
However, if you really want to stand out and impress, you need to make the right choices. So, for example, if you are going to the office or perhaps working on a stand at an exhibition for your company, you most certainly do not want to wear a pair of the so-called comedy / novelty cufflinks such as a pair of “Baby Yoda” cufflinks, or another pair we just spotted with “Bald and Sexy” written on them! That would not go down well at all.
No, you want unique cufflinks of course, but something suitable for the occasion such as silver-plated cufflinks that offer a refined look.
At Wimbledon Cufflink Company we have many choices of silver-plated cufflinks that are perfect for formal occasions. For instance, take our English Lion Cufflinks. This pair depicts the English Lion rampant – the king of beasts, ready to take on all comers, and used as a symbol by English royalty way back as far as the 12th century.
You might also like our St. George and the Welsh Dragon design which is another of our unique cufflinks and is ideal for the man who is proud of his English heritage. We still celebrate St. George’s Day on April 23rd every year.
If you have anything to do with the navy, either royal navy or merchant, then a very suitable pair of cufflinks would be the sextant design. This is an iconic symbol of navigation at sea, and dates back to the 18th century. Even today, all big ships are still required to carry a working sextant because it will work even if there is no electricity.
