Cufflinks and Tieclips ... anybody still use them?

These accessories seem to go in and out of fashion trends every few years.

Anybody still use them?

I have just started to get into them. I am a blue collar working industry guy but like to get dressed up for various functions. I have recently received a few french cuff shirts from Harry Rosen for Christmas and at first was a bit put off. But I am a silly, quirky guy and have discovered that the cuff link is a GREAT way to be silly yet fancy hahaha. Cuff-Daddy has a great selection of various links and they also have an Amazon store which make it easier to buy them.

Moores recently had cuff link, tie bar sets on clearance but it could only be in specific regions.

Now even more intesting if anyone is like me and enjoys a good EDC knife or multi-tool Amazon.ca Collar stay multitool


I might just pull the trigger on those puppies LOL

I'm a firm believer in accessorizing for men when the occasion calls for it.

That said, I use exclusively only tie bars as opposed to tie clips. Cufflinks too. I have a few of each in my collection.

Take a walk around the financial district? These are hardly a trend. Like watches, these are minimal accessories that give your outfit the extra pop. Its just a matter of whether its tastefully done or looks like like a Le Crapteau outfit.

Well ... I'm still into all of this ...

If heading out to a "formal" gathering ... cufflinks a must for me ...

My watch never leaves my wrist unless if I'm in the shower ...

People now only rely on their cellphone for time ... too much of a hassle to pull out the phone from your backpocket or any other pocket ... lift up your hand and you will see time on your wrist ...

They never go out of style, people are just deciding to become lazy, cheap and unclassy. If you want to dress properly and formal these are always the best way to do so.

Same.

I feel so naked without a watch.

Shoes, ties and their accessories, cufflinks - all of these things done right, along with a watch makes you standout from just another guy in a suit.

And belts...Sick of seeing people not wearing a belt. Or the young dudes that wear a belt around their hips so we can be graced with seeing their underpants. lol

Tie bars are for juniors and try hards. 20-somethings who think they're a 'boss' because of some sh*tty side business. Keep reading those LinkedIn quotes, brah, while talking about 'hustling' and how you're into 'experiences' .....

Did cufflinks ever go out of style? I'd say I've got a 60/40 split between french cuff and barrel cuffs and adding more french cuffs.

The Swank was handed down from my late father. He had them from the 1960s ... 50+ years and just toss them away? They're classics and cannot be found anywhere.

Value Village, lol? I don't even know why I know Swank, but I am familiar with them. I think they are still around? Or maybe there's plenty of dead stock floating around?
