Cufflinks

The development of cufflinks was inevitably linked with the evolution of mens' shirts. It wasn’t until the 1500’s that the precursor for the shirt sleeve cuffs we are now familiar with made an appearance, as tiny ruffles began to appear on wristbands; as these developed, gent’s would use narrow ribbons or string to ensure their sleeves were closed. It wasn’t until the early 18th Century, however, that very fashion forward gent’s began to use pairs of buttons linked by a chain to secure their sleeves.

The 19th Century saw the emergence of modern shirt sleeve cuffs which were incredibly stiff due to the use of starch, and this rendered using a simple button to fasten the sleeve ineffective. As a result of this difficulty, manufacturers developed the use of a metal chain and the cufflink was born. By the mid 19th Century almost everyone in the middle and upper classes wore cufflinks; both a testament to their functionality and a Victorian taste for decoration.
