Cuff links For Men
Often there is a lot of confusion as to why wear cufflinks. To simply put, they are alternatives to buttons. But being mere alternatives was a thing of the past. Depending on the design, they are the formal, semiformal or casual alternatives to otherwise boring buttons – which are a passing fashion fad. Silver men’s cufflinks from the house of Voylla are an exciting generation of cufflink accessories to redefine conventions.
At a basic, the function of cufflinks is to tie together closed shirt cuffs. The same function can be achieved with buttons. While buttons are sewn onto the shirt for this purpose, cufflinks are hinged or hooked at the same position. This aspect allows different cufflinks to be used for different types of outfits and occasions. Therefore, cufflinks are removable, and unlike buttons, are more elaborately designed and intended to enhance an outfit’s presentation.
Types of cufflinks
There are no set types of cufflinks because there are hundreds of variations. Basically they are hinged accessories although several other mechanical alternatives may be used. But the hinged variety is the most popular and durable. The most common type is the whale back which is characterized by a flat head and a tail that is ‘whale –like’. Being large, they are easy to use and the shape could have variations depending on the design and purpose of the cufflink.
Bullet backs are more or less similar to whale backs but the post is narrower and the hinging mechanism is through a metallic cylinder that has some free movement. Both bullet backs and whale backs can be used along with several other accessories such as bracelets, men’s long chains and earrings. It creates a bejeweled distinct appearance that will stay pungently appealing at all times. Chain links or links silver cufflinks are two heads connected by a chain. This type of cufflink is for semi-formal wear to create a loose fastening unlike a rigid fastening that is characteristic over very formal attire.
