Where do cufflinks come from?

When you wear cufflinks you tap into a rich vein of cultural history. First came the shirt cuff. The French or double cuff dates back to the time of Louis XIV of France. This large, folded over cuff had no buttons and so required something to keep the ends fastened together.

Originally this would have been ribbon or string, but towards the end of Louis’s reign, in the 16th century, members of the royal court and aristocracy began wearing decorative jewellery, linked by a chain, in their shirt cuffs. Cufflink styles had become more common by the end of the 18th century and eventually cufflinks were established as an essential part of male dress.

How to put on cufflinks

First make sure that you’re wearing a shirt with double cuffs. Fold the cuffs back so that the line at the end of the sleeves is even. Hold the two ends of the folded cuff together so that the sides lie flat away from the wrist. Line up the holes in the cuffs.

Move the bullet-shaped catch at the back of the cufflink so that you can insert it through the holes, and then secure it by moving the catch back to the horizontal position. When your arm is by your side the decorative part of the cufflink should be facing outwards.

By wearing cufflinks you’re completing a picture of yourself, enhancing your image with a unique cufflink brand. The art is in the detail, the detail makes the man.
