How to make a standard shirt cufflink ready?

by deborahjlinares

Cufflinks can easily add flair to your look, and they’re not hard to wear once you know how to accessorize with them. Many men feel intimidated by cufflinks because of the perceived complexity of using them properly, but these simple steps can help you make your shirt cufflink ready in no time!

Pick out your shirt

Cufflinks are a fashion statement with many purposes. Some see them as essential to their suit’s style, while others wear them casually with a dress shirt and tie. No matter the occasion, cufflinks can be paired with your outfit to take it up a notch. However, one of the downsides to wearing cufflinks is that you may have trouble getting them in place on your shirt cuffs if you don’t know how. 

Pick out your cufflinks

  • Decide which cufflinks you want to wear for your event. 
  • Please put on the cufflinks and remove the shirt or dress shirt over it. 
  • Put on a new shirt and button it up, but leave one of the cuffs unbuttoned so you can access it easily when needed. 
  • Take off your jacket and put it over a chair or another surface in front of you so that you can easily get to both sides of your shirt at once as needed later on in this process.

Cut Out the Space For The Clasp

As a designer, I’ve been asked this question many times. The answer is simple – use the Maximillian Studio cufflinks with a clasp! These are ready-made, so you must open the clasp and attach it to your shirt cuffs. 

There are five steps in total, and they are all easy to follow: 

  1. Cut out a space for the clasp on each side of your shirt sleeve. 
  2. Please put on your shirt and wear it as you normally would with buttoned cuffs. 
  3. Slip on your new cufflinks onto each side of your cuffs (so there should be one on each side). 
  4. Open up the clasps at the end of both sides and slide them through (making sure they’re sitting in place). 
  5. Enjoy wearing stylish cufflinks!

Iron and Sew

  • Iron the cufflinks flat and make sure they are facing in the right direction. 
  • Pin them in place with a small stitch on the back of your shirt cuff, being careful not to sew through the fabric. 
  • Sew all the way around, leaving an opening for turning, and cut any excess threads from both sides. 
  • Turn it inside out and press with a warm iron if needed!

Enjoy Your Perfectly Sized Cuffs!

Maximillian Studio offers a wide range of cufflinks. Our designs are meticulously hand-crafted in the USA using only the finest materials and most recent techniques. Maximillian Studio’s cufflinks come in four sizes, Standard (3/8), Large (1/2), Extra Large (3/4), and Jumbo (1). We also offer two different styles, with or without a loop. Our standard cufflinks are designed for shirts with button cuffs so they will not slip off. If you want your shirt to remain as natural as possible, we recommend that you consider our larger size, designed for shirts with wider cuffs or if your shirt has double buttons on the sleeve.

How do you tell if a shirt can have cufflinks?

The easiest way to tell if you can add cufflinks is by using the following criteria: 

  • The shirt has buttons on the front. 
  • The cuffs are not too tight. 
  • There is enough fabric between the button and the end of the sleeve. 

If these three requirements are met, then you should be able to add cufflinks.

Can all shirts use cufflinks?

Cufflinks are the perfect accessory for any man’s wardrobe, but not all shirts can use them. Standard shirt cuffs need to be able to lay down and not have any extra fabric that could get caught on the cufflinks. This is because most shirts have buttons or buttonholes near the bottom of their cuffs. For these cuffs to lay flat, there needs to be enough fabric on both sides of the placket so that they don’t bunch up and look sloppy. If your dress shirts are too small and tight at the end of the sleeve, you may need some new dress shirts.

Final Words

There are many ways to attach shirt cufflinks, and it’s up to you how you want them attached. One way is to sew them onto the front of your shirt, which will require sewing skills. Another way is to sew them onto the back of your sleeves, which won’t require any sewing skills but might not be as visible. Using this method, you can use snaps or buttons on the back of the sleeve and then fold over your cuffs on top of those buttons or snaps. You could also use loops on the end of each sleeve that can attach with a button or snap at its base.
