Do you wear the same cufflinks every day? Wouldn’t you prefer to be singled out for being a little different in your office? You put on a new tie and it looks great. Rather than wearing a pair of old cufflinks why not spruce them up with a new pair that matches exactly with your tie? People will notice!
Many men often ask me what they should wear with a french cuff shirt – in other words what tie matches with what cufflinks? It goes without saying that cufflinks can only be worn with a french cuff shirt. Under no circumstance can you wear cufflinks with a normal button up sleeve on your shirt! The best way to look smart is basically to match your tie to your cufflinks. For example, if you are wearing a striped blue tie, try and match it up with a blue pair of cufflinks which match at least one colour in the tie. Alternatively look for a striped pair of cufflinks which may contain a number of similar colours to the tie. If your tie has blue and pink in it – go with a pair of cufflinks which have blue and pink in it. I think you get the picture. If you only have a few pairs of cufflinks, make sure you get your hands on a classic pair which go with absolutely anything, like a plain pair of matt or shiny silver cufflinks like the malebox classic range. A plain silver pair of cufflinks can be worn with almost anything. Make sure the bottom of your tie goes to your belt buckle. Don’t forget, if your cufflinks have a silver or gold finish, be sure to match that with the colour of your belt buckle and your watch band.
