9 CUFFLINKS TO MAKE THE MAN
A man who really wants to express himself, in a formal kind of way, can find himself limited in options. Ostensibly, the beauty of formal men’s style lies in its subtleties—the width of a lapel, the length of a pant, the quality of fabric. It seems the most personalized details often get left to the parts no one, save the man doing the wearing, can actually see (read: lining). Ties, of both variety, have some options but so often appear too ostentatious. So it follows, that cufflinks are perhaps the most demure, yet forward way, to express yourself when all dressed up.
