Run for the Roses with Kentucky Derby Cufflinks

 

 

It may be the “fastest (and most exciting) two minutes in sports,” but the Kentucky Derby is much more than a race.  While women show off their most fashionable hats, men suit up and strut their stuff, too.  Don’t delay!  The Derby is run the first weekend in May.  You don’t want to get left in the dust!

 

A Little History

The Kentucky Derby Grounds: By The original uploader Sayeth via Wikimedia Commons
The Kentucky Derby Grounds: By the original uploader Sayeth via Wikimedia Commons
Known as the “Run for the Roses,” the Kentucky Derby is the culminating event of a two-week festival.  It’s also the first event in the Triple Crown, followed by the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.  The winner of the Derby is traditionally draped with a blanket of roses.  Attendance at the race is the highest of all the races, even topping the Breeder’s Cup.

 

The Kentucky Derby began in 1875 and has taken place every single year since.  And, because of its long running, it abounds in tradition.  Obviously, roses are popular, as they are the official flower of the Derby.  Other  traditions include drinking mint juleps and eating burgoo.  But the most well-known tradition is the wearing of hats and the expectation that all respectable attendees dress the part.

Every Derby attendee knows that in addition to watching the horses, one should watch the hats.  Ladies wear large hats and it often becomes something of a competition to wear the best or most fashionable one.  

 

Men, on the other hand, may wear a hat, but that’s not where you get to shine.  Since a suit is expected, how else to celebrate the occasion and show your Derby spirit, than with cufflinks that celebrate the special day?  Thankfully, we have you covered.  There are lots of fun options:

 

The mint julep: sure, you can drink a mint julep, but you can wear one, too.  And not in a way that leaves stains or makes you spend precious minutes mopping things up.

Designer Spotlight: Jan Leslie

 

Jan Leslie began her own line of cufflinks after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania and spending some time consulting with a large accounting firm.  Her passion for design led her to open her own jewelry design business.  Eighteen years later, her line includes a diverse collection of men’s accessories that are sold exclusively in a handful of select luxury stores around the globe (including here at Cufflinks Depot).

Called a visionary in her field, Jan Leslie continually redefines menswear with her vibrant hand-painted enamels and gorgeous semi-precious stone collections.  From beautiful classics to irreverent showstoppers, Leslie’s cufflinks are highly sought-after by stylish men.

 

Jan Leslie is well-known for her collection of sterling silver hand-painted enamel pieces that use artisanal methods to produce unique works with understated elegance.  According to their website, this “creative process begins with the study of the actual subject–insect, animal or otherwise. Next a wax prototype is sculpted then cast in sterling silver and polished smooth. The creation is then individualized through a technique of meticulously hand painting layers of enamel, creating the desired blend of color and luminescence.”

By reinterpreting and reimagining the world around her, Leslie creates beautiful works of art that reflect her spirit and imagination.  Because of the high-quality components, meticulous craftsmanship, and attention to details, Jan Leslie cufflinks are fun, playful, and fashionable accessories.  Every stylish (and slightly quirky) man should own at least one pair of these highly collectible cufflinks.  
Here at Cufflinks Depot, we want to ensure that you always have the best cufflinks and most sought-after designers to choose from.  We offer a large collection of Jan Leslie cufflinks here.  Our convenient online store allows you to shop from the comfort of home.  And with fast and free shipping on orders over $29, plus a free gift, we make it easy to dress with style and class (and sometimes even a bit of sass).

Lapel Pins: How to Choose and Wear Them

What is a Lapel Pin?

The lapel pin is a classic accessory that is an easy and cost-effective way to customize your attire and enhance your own personal style.  This small pin, usually worn on the lapel of a jacket, are often used as symbols of achievement and belonging in different organizations, as well as to to designate achievement and membership at certain businesses.  Collecting these pins has become a popular hobby for some as the number of designs has increased, and popular businesses like Disney have made pin collecting a social activity.  Here at Cufflinks Depot we also have a selection of lapel pins for you to choose from.

 

How Do I Choose a Lapel Pin?

These days, lapel pins come in all shapes and styles, and even quite a few sizes.  

 

The boutonniere:

This is a floral pin and the most formal option.  It features a small flower tucked into the buttonhole of your jacket.  This is most commonly seen at weddings, but it can also be worn for everyday occasions.

The long-stem pin:

This pin has a stick pin attachment and are usually made from metallic materials including gold, silver, and copper. They often feature designs with feathers, animal heads, arrows, and geometric shapes. 

 

Badge or Mini-pin:

This is what most people think of when they think of lapel pins, and it’s one of the most popular types of lapel pins.  Originally used in the military, in political movements, and for charity campaigns, this tiny pin is small and subtle so it doesn’t look like a brooch.  They often come enameled or with precious gems or stones.  They also come in a wide variety of shapes.

How Do I Wear a Lapel Pin?

Lapel pins should be properly placed on the jacket to avoid them looking tacky.  The video below gives some good information about how to wear one properly.

Ultimately, lapel pins are a fun way to add class and “dapper” to a suit.  They also give men an additional way to express their own personal style through their accessories.  Try one today, or give our service department a call for additional help.  We love to answer questions!

Choosing Stylish Prom Stud Sets

 

It’s spring time and love is in the air.  So is Senioritis, graduation, and PROM!  Yes, prom season is in full swing with seniors across the country dressing up in their finest to party the night away.  Young men everywhere will don a snazzy suit (and maybe even a bowtie) and head out to impress the world.  But the truly stylish guys know that you’re not fully dressed without a swanky stud set.

 

What is a Stud Set?

Many men don’t think about stud sets unless they’re in a wedding: a groom or groomsman.  However, stud sets are a great way to pull an outfit together.  A stud set is a decorative fastener that fits onto a buttonhole on the front of a pleated shirt, or onto the starched bib of a stiff-front shirt.  These shirts are specially made to use studs rather than (or in addition to) regular buttons.  Because of this, shirts with stud fasteners have a little extra glam factor.

Stud sets were first used in the mid-19th century, because some shirt fronts were too stiff to close with buttons. Today, they are usually worn in semi-formal and formal settings with heavily starched shirts. Stud sets can be made of any metal, and they’re often inlaid with a precious or semi-precious stone or pearl. You can see our entire collection here.  They can even be engraved like the ones in this collection.  We even have fun stud sets that are perfect for a themed prom (like the skull & crossbones pictured above).

 

Styling Your Stud Set

If you’re wearing a beautiful stud set, you’ll want to make sure you pick out a stylish pair of cufflinks to accentuate your look (if your stud set doesn’t already come with matching ones).  Try to match the metals of your sets for continuity, but feel free to be more playful with your cufflinks if that’s your personality.  You can even match your cufflinks to your date’s outfit, if you’d like.  Or, if the prom is extra formal, stick with something simple and classic.

How to Care For and Clean Your Cufflinks

 

Cufflinks are a fun and beautiful piece of jewelry, but it’s important to care for them properly so they last your entire lifetime, and beyond!  Our guide below gives you some tips for to care for and clean your cufflinks.

 

Professional Services

The easiest way to clean your cufflinks is to take them to a qualified jeweler in your area.  Ideally, you want someone with some experience with cufflinks, but most jewelers have the equipment and know-how to get the job done.  Additionally, if you happen to scratch or scuff your cufflinks, a jeweler will be able to polish them back to perfection.

 

Another option is to contact the retailer where you purchased your cufflinks (we hope you bought them from us, and we’d love to help you if you have questions – please give us a call!).  They can point you in the direction of a reputable cufflinks cleaner or give you tips for doing it yourself.

 

At Home

If paying for a professional isn’t your preferred method, you can easily do most cleanings at home. However, the best way to care for your cufflinks is to wear them mindfully.

 

Cufflinks should be worn frequently to keep them in top condition.  While this may seem counter-intuitive, wearing your cufflinks helps keep them from tarnishing and gathering dust.  And, by keeping them where you see them frequently, it’s also easier to remember to care for them.

 

 

Deakin & Francis, a premiere cufflinks designer, suggests some tips for keeping your cufflinks in top condition:

  • Keep your cufflinks in a clean environment, separate from other jewelry. A cufflink box is ideal for keeping the cufflinks separate and clean.
  • Don’t take your cufflinks for a swim, chlorine can damage sterling silver and gold.
  • Keep a silver or gold polishing cloth in your desk drawer to wipe away office dust that may mark your cufflinks.
  • Don’t run over your cufflinks in the Ferrari, or drop them in a glass of G&T!

 

Sounds like some good advice!

Precious Metals & Gemstones

Polishing cloth

If you have cufflinks made of gold or silver, you can use a professional gold or silver cleaning solution or warm, soapy water and a soft cloth to gently clean them.  You can use an old soft-bristled toothbrush or professional cleaning brush to get into nooks and crannies, if necessary.  Made Man has step-by-step direction for cleaning vintage gold cufflinks that can give you more details on cleaning your jewelry with soapy water.

 

Clean sterling silver with a soft polishing cloth.

 

If you also have precious stones or pearls, you can use the same method, but be careful not to let them sit too long in the water.

 

Enameled & Stainless Steel

If your cufflinks are enameled or stainless steel, avoid using cleaning solutions, because it could ruin the solvents used to create them.  Instead, use a soft polishing cloth to gently rub them clean.  These items don’t generally require frequent cleaning, though.

 

Protect Your Cufflinks

Taking care of your cufflinks, long term, is easiest if you keep them in a jewelry box.  This helps prevent oxidation and tarnishing, which occurs as a reaction to oxygen.  This also helps to keep them away from heat and sunlight, which can also cause damage.  Ideally, you want to keep each pair in segmented compartments so they don’t scratch other jewelry items.  We have a large selection of cufflink boxes here and a selection of jewelry boxes here.

March Madness Has Arrived! Are You Ready?

March is here, and there’s so much happening!  The luck of the Irish descends upon us, and balls are flying as basketball’s March Madness begins.  

 

Played mostly during March, this season is known informally as March Madness or the Big Dance, and has become one of the most famous annual sporting events in the United States.  It includes the top teams from 32 divisions, plus 36 other teams who are awarded spots in the brackets.  Teams, seeded by rank, proceed through a single game elimination bracket beginning with 64 teams, to a “Sweet Sixteen”, and eventually, a Final Four. The Final Four is usually played during the first weekend of April, when these four teams, one from each region (East, South, Midwest, and West), compete for the national championship. (wikipedia)

 

As awesome as watching the best college basketball teams in the country is, it could always be better.  How?  Cufflinks, my friends. Cufflinks.

St. Patrick’s Day Style Guide

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up quickly, and with it comes images of shamrocks, pots of gold, and leprechauns.  St. Patrick’s Day began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland and has become an international celebration of Irish culture with festivals, parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.  And with all that excitement, pinching, and partying, the well-dressed man still wants to stay stylish.

 

The Serious Man

Not every man gets into the fun and silliness sometimes associated with St. Patrick’s Day.  And, if you work in an office environment, it’s not always appropriate to be overt in your love of the Irish.  A green suit isn’t exactly the pinnacle of fashion-forwardness.  So, how can you subtly show your love of all things Irish (and keep from getting pinched)?  Wear one of these classy pairs of cufflinks that highlights the green without being too flashy.

With an initial focus exclusively on men’s accessories, in the 70s and 80s the business grew and became known as one of the industry’s best accessories companies. With the advent of a new CEO in the late 1990s, David Donahue was soon became a successful brand of accessories in all of the finest retail stores. In face, in some locations, they were the exclusive retailer source for men’s formal accessories, offering cufflinks, stud sets, money clips, and key rings.

 

The Company Expands

In 2003, the new CEO began expanding the company’s offering to include formal furnishings: bow ties, cummerbunds, formal ties, and vests.  This resulted in an overwhelmingly positive response from retailers, leading to high demand and the development of a collection of fine silk formal accessories.  And when they launched their formal wear collection using fine Italian and English silks, it was an instant hit.

 

“WE ARE AMONG THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS AT DELIVERING ACCESSIBLE LUXURY TO DISCERNING CUSTOMERS.” – ROB DONOHUE

 

Always eager to keep retailers and their customers satisfied, David Donahue expands again to include neckwear, a formal shirt collection, and dress shirts. All were a huge success.
