How to Choose Shirts To Wear With Cufflinks

Thursday, 28 April 2011

shirts to wear with cufflinksWhen the particular company sets the objective to keep the business casual dress code, it is made to have all employees loyal and equal to each other. Employees should project the professional image to our customers, potential partners and community visitors. Business casual dress is the standard for dress code. Our casual clothing is not appropriate to wear in the office and thus, most men can a little bit feel uncomfortable about the limited version of business wear. Strict shirts require classic men’s suit, ties and shoes. However, the choice of such a traditional and standard piece of the men’s wear is difficult for the nuances to know, like which shirt is appropriate to wear with cufflinks and when cuff-links are usually put on.

Cuff-links is somewhat decorative element for the men’s suit since they come as a jewelry which does not yield to other women’s bracelets and necklaces in beauty and price. As a matter of fact, cufflinks is the clasps to fasten the cuff and collar of the men’s shirt. As a rule, cufflinks available requires the evening dress code for functions.

Cufflinks appeared as a men’s wear in the time of reign of Louis XIV, the King of France. The court persons used to decorate their clothing with glass buttons linked with a short chain. That was the prototype of modern cuff-links. The cuff-links as they are today appeared only in 1924 when the designers of the Boyer Company invented the special mechanism to clasp the cuff-links – the pin loosely revolving around the stem.

The shirt to wear with cufflinks has the special cuffs. The most used shirt is the one with the French. The cuff is made from two layers of fabric which are folded and fastened with the cuff-links. As a rule, such a cuff is of square edges while the rounded angles come rarely.

A French cuff shirt is a shirt of business dress code with French cuffs also called double cuffs. French cuffs are folded back and are fastened with cufflinks or silk knots. Today, French cuff shirts are said as fashion shirts, and are often worn with eveningwear. French cuff shirt are considered to be more formal than button cuffs. However, French cuff shirt are not really suitable for some professional events as job interview. A button cuff shirt is better, more modest and appropriate not to show off with cufflinks. Such a shirt is good to match with business suit for every day, and the only thing to consider is whether the cufflinks are suitable to business dress code. When putting a shirt on for cufflinks, a classic rule regarding the suit should be followed when the cuffs go approximately 1-1,5 cm under the jacket sleeve.

A French cuff shirt is considered to wear to match the expensive suit, while the evening dress code for functions requiring the tailcoat dictates a shirt with cufflinks to go with Vienna or combined cuff.

Cufflinks is the attribute of formal and solemn style, most of all. And they can be the decorative detail for men at any social rout or function. The luxury diamond necklace seems inappropriate with the dress for every day wear, and as it is, the expensive cufflinks hardly ever decorate the ordinary men’s suit. On the top of it, men should take in mind that cufflinks should go with other attributes in color, style and texture. Cheaper plain cufflinks are better to match with the suit for every day wear without precious stones and metals. As for the solemn event, more expensive and luxury cufflinks can effectively complement the smoking and appropriate shirt.

Cufflinks should go with the shirt in style, color and texture, as we said before. Moreover, when considering the cufflinks to put on with business shirts, consider your budget again. With the limited budget, think of cufflinks with semi-precious or imitation gems. A pair of cufflinks to wear with all business shirts is not a good idea. A pair of expensive cufflinks and some of them of basic form and color are the best. And you’d better buy a pack of them if you can afford it since they have the feature to get lost easily and often, as well as earrings or keys.

Cufflinks are perfect for suit and tie and once you find your favorite pair of cufflinks to suit particular occasion, you make sure to have improved your look.
