How to Put On Cufflinks?

Cufflinks actually pre-date the button, safety pin, zipper or Velcro. Luckily, advancements have been made since the first cufflinks were made. Cufflinks are a great way to add a some personal style to suit or dress shirt. With so many new styles now, they can also be a way to support your favorite teams, celebrate a wedding, or simply complete a look.

Step 1
Wear the correct shirt. Put on a dress shirt with French (or Double) cuffs. This sort of shirt has extra long cuffs with no buttons and holes on each side.

Fold the cuffs back, making sure that they form a neat and even line at the end of the sleeves.

Hold the cuffs together. Hold the two open edges of the shirt cuff together. Unlike cuffs with buttons where one side of the cuff folds inside the other, with cufflinks, the two sides lay flat away from the wrist as shown in the photo above.

Line up the holes. Make sure the holes for the cufflink line up.

nsert the cufflink and secure it. When your arm is at your side, the decorative part of the cuff link should be facing outwards. The way you secure the cufflink this will vary slightly depending upon the style of cufflinks:

Bullet back closure - The most common of all cufflinks backings and the easiest to put on. This style has a torpedo, or bullet shaped, capsule that is suspended between two posts. The bullet can be flipped on its axis to manipulate it through the button holes in the cuff, and then flipped horizontal to secure the cufflink on the shirt.

Whale back closure - This style has a straight post combined with a flat, solid whale tail that flips flat to insert, and flips back in place to secure the cuff.

Fixed Backing - Fixed backings are an extension of the cufflink face. This means that the post and backing are formed from the same piece of metal as the front side of the cufflink. The backing does not bend or move in any way. May require a bit more work to put on, but benefit in the long run from not having moving parts.

Chain Link - The most traditional form of cufflinks feature a chain link. Chain link cufflinks are the original form of cufflinks and are found most often in items of English production. Chain links characteristically have 2 sides that are joined together by a chain link. Due to the agility required to put them on, these are certainly for the expert level cufflink connoisseur. The benefit of this style is that there is something to look at on both sides of the cuff. Additionally, chain link cufflinks typically allow for a looser cuff.

Reversible - Fixed back cufflinks that have a design on the back end, rather than a plain fixed disc. Allows an appealing design on both sides of the cuffand enables you to switch what is shown on the main side of the cuff, like having 2 pairs in one.
