BAADE II: Artisan Cufflinks (Designer Spotlight)

BAADE II is a family-owned, artisan jewelry company that is known as a leading manufacturer of men’s jewelry accessories for the past 26 years.  Started in 1988, in Atlantic City, BAADE II has been hailed by many connoisseurs as America’s very finest, artisan-crafted personal jewelry maker.  Their cufflinks have been featured in magazines such as Executive Travel, Aficionado, Forbes Life, and GQ.

 

The Story Begins

The BAADE story began when Mary Ann Paul, after following her military husband around the world, finally opened her own shop in Georgetown specializing in estate jewelry.  After receiving a degree in gemology, she became intrigued by the beauty of the many vitreous enameled pieces she sold and set out to learn the manufacturing process.

After spending time in the UK learning the intricacies of crafting these beautiful pieces of jewelry, she started her own jewelry business, naming it BAADE.  Twenty-six years later, her company still produces wearable art, with most of the vitreous enamel work continuing to be hand-crafted in the UK.

Avoiding a large range of “funky and novelty” jewelry, BAADE focuses on quality and classics that never go out of style – something that is different than what is usually found in larger department stores.

Despite the popularity of their products, BAADE remains a small company, and Mary Ann is very hands-on.

 

Vitreous Hand-Enameled Designs

Although BAADE has various styles to choose from, they are best known for their signature vitreous enameled cufflinks (this is not to be confused with the epoxy type “enamel” used by the majority of cufflink manufacturers today).

BAADE still uses old-fashioned tools and presses in the creation of their cufflinks, hand-crafting each one to ensure its quality and brilliance.  From the beginning stages in the old-fashioned drop press, to the final stages of hand clipping and soldering, close attention is paid to every detail.

Once the cufflink has been prepared, it’s ready for the vitreous enameling process which uses heat to fuse powdered glass, infused with oxides and minerals, to the sterling silver designed cufflink plate.  This method is sometimes called champleve or cloisonne, depending on the manner in which the enamel is applied.

The process of vitreous enameling goes back to ancient Egypt and produces a vibrantly rich kaleidoscope of colors that is near-legend in the unrivaled depth and intensity.  Creating this beautiful look takes time and attention to detail.

“Vitreous enamels are meticulously handcrafted by layering, then hand-polishing, layer-after-layer of wafer-thin, molten glass, one atop another.  Each added layer renders a quantum leap in color depth and intensity.  Each layer is painstakingly made by first firing powdered glass to 850 degrees Celsius, or 2800 degrees Fahrenheit.  …Once the molten lava has cooled to a wafer thin layer of colorfully transparent enameled glass, it’s fastidiously hand polished.  Then, another molten layer is poured atop it.  And again, diligently hand polished.  Over-and-over, the process is repeated until the vibrantly rich depth and intensity of desired color is achieved.”

This process is repeated an average of six times per color as each layer is painstakingly applied and added to each cufflink plate.  Then, to ensure a product that never tarnishes, each cufflink is electroplated with either rhodium (part of the platinum family of metals) or 18K gold.  The result is a piece of prized jewelry, characterized by a brilliant, non-fading, vibrantly rich color.

How To Season Your New Humidor

Congratulations!  You got a brand new, beautiful humidor for Christmas!  It lovely and pretty and just sitting there because you’re unsure about what to do next.  Don’t put your cigars in it yet!  First, you need to season your humidor so that it keeps your cigars in pristine condition.

 

Your New Humidor

Florence Cigar Humidor (how to season your humidor)

A humidor is an airtight container for keeping your cigars and tobacco moist.  It’s important, when you first get a humidor, to season it so that it retains humidity better.  Although this process takes several days, it’s not complicated.  It’s definitely a process you’ll want to use, though, as it will preserve your cigars more effectively.  In fact, if you put cigars into a humidor before the wood has had a chance to absorb any moisture, it will absorb the moisture from your cigars and dry them out, ruining them!

 

 

 

Seasoning Your Humidor

Because humidors are wood, and wood is porous, you need to increase the moisture content of the wood so that it continues to maintain the proper humidity level.  

Start by wiping down the inside with a dry cloth (a damp cloth can cause the wood to warp).

Next, make sure your hygrometer is calibrated properly to ensure that it’s measuring the amount of humidity in your humidor accurately.  

 

The Wipe Down Method

This is one of the most popular methods because it’s very simple.  However, although it’s simple, if it’s not done properly you risk damaging the wood of your humidor.  For this method, you will need distilled water (it’s very important that you use distilled water to avoid any mineral deposits that could clog up or damage your humidor), a clean unscented sponge or cloth, and some patience.  

 

Get Your Humidor Ready

Start by dampening your sponge or cloth with the distilled water, then wipe down all the wood inside of the humidor, including the lid and any trays. Be very careful not to overly saturate the interior wood with water.   Once you’re finished, wipe down any wooden dividers and trays that came with your humidor using the same method and place them in your humidor.   

Next, moisten the sponge with more distilled water so that it’s damp but not dripping, then place it inside the humidor on a plastic bag (to avoid contact with the wood) and close the lid.  

Prepare your humidification device according to the manufacturer’s instructions.   Once the humidification element is filled, be sure to wipe it down to remove all the excess water. Rest it on a hand towel for approximately 30 minutes.

 

The Hard Part

Finally, close the humidor for 24 hours and wait. The next day, repeat the wipe down procedure using distilled water and the sponge, but do not leave the sponge inside this time, and wait another 24 hours.  

If you have a hygrometer inside the humidor, use it to ensure that your humidity level is between 68-70%. If the humidity is lower than 72% on the day after the second treatment, then repeat the wipe down procedure for a third time (you may also need to test your hygrometer or recharge your humidification device).  Once your humidor holds stead around 70-72% for 24 hours, it’s seasoned properly and you can safely load it with your cigars (your cigars will absorb some of the moisture and your humidor should stay around 68-70% humidity).

 

This video will give you a visual demonstration of how to season your humidor.

 

Other Seasoning Options

There are other ways to season your humidor, including one by Boveda, which offers a comprehensive set of instructions for how to use their products to properly seal and maintain your humidor.  If you are concerned about using the Wipe Down method, you may want to read up on their seasoning tools.

 

Another option is to use “Active” seasoning.  This is similar to the wipe down method, except that you start by placing the sponge in a bowl, and soaking it with distilled water or propylene glycol solution.  Then wring it out and place it in the cigar humidor on top of the plastic bag (to keep it from saturating the wood).  After you place the cigar humidifier (and any wooden trays or dividers) and hygrometer in the humidor, you close it up and wait for 48 hours.  

After 48 hours, the sponge should be completely dry. Remove it and refill the cigar humidifier by soaking it in water or propylene glycol solution again. Just like before, drain the excess liquid, place it back in the humidor, and close it for another 24 hours.  After another 24 hours, check the humidity level. It should be close to 70 percent. If it’s at 72-73 percent, that’s fine. If it’s higher than 74 percent, wait for another 24 hours and it should fall to the right level.

 

Now that you’ve properly seasoned your humidor, it’s time to load it up with your cigars!

 

Make Dressing Better Your New Year’s Resolution

It’s that time of year when we reflect back on the year that’s ending and look forward to the possibilities, hopes, and intentions for the new year ahead.  Many people begin the process by setting goals or making resolutions.  Often these include eating healthier, working out, stopping bad habits, and incorporating new habits.  No matter what your resolutions include this year, dressing better should be on your list.  There’s truth in the old saying: “Clothes make the man” (attributed to Shakespeare and Mark Twain). When you look good, you walk taller, with presence and power.  So, here are some ways you can step up your game and step out a little more stylishly.

Choose Stylish Shoes

A man who knows to dress better wears shoes that make a statement.One things that is most often overlooked when reconsidering a wardrobe is the area of footwear.  Yet, this is one of the first things that people (especially women) notice!  Many times you are sized up by the fashion on your feet.  If you’re sporting a pair of clean Converse shoes, you’re probably laid back and fun-loving.  If you’re styling a pair of suede chukkas or a pair of leather double monk strap dress shoes, you’re most likely a man who appreciates classy, well-made footwear.  Regardless, your footwear reflects your personality and style.  So, what do your shoes say about you?  If they’re not telling the world the story you want, then consider changing your shoes so they make the right statement.

 

Wear A Tailored Suit


On a casual day off, lounging at home with the family, or barbequing with friends, a nice pair of jeans and a relaxed button down with the sleeves rolled up is absolutely the way to go. But when you’re out-and-about, or heading to work, consider a slightly more elevated look.  Few things make a man stand out the way a tailored suit does.  Yes, you can certainly wear an off-the-rack suit, but it just doesn’t fit the way a tailored suit does.  And the right fit is everything, and it speaks volumes about your confidence and authority!

Plus, a tailored suit offers you multiple options for wearing it.  You can dress it up or down, add layers, or keep it simple.

 

“Putting on a beautifully designed suit elevates my spirit, extols my sense of self, and helps define me as a man to whom details matter.”

Gay Talese, Author

 

If the details matter, and if you like commanding attention, a tailored suit is the first step in the right direction.

Choose the Right Accessories

Accessories, when done well, can take a good outfit up a notch.  Items like a classy watch or belt always make a statement, but often it’s the little things that really catch people’s eyes (especially the ladies’ eyes).  Choosing the right tie pin, or wearing a pair of stylish cufflinks can really add a special touch. And, they can also help you to show off your personality a little bit, too.  We can help you find the right pair with our huge selection, or you can call us at 1-866-4MY-CUFF for personalized assistance.

Choosing the Right Cufflinks for the Stylish Man

Cufflinks are the hallmark of a stylish, well-dressed man.  And, these days, there are lots and lots of choices when it comes to picking a pair to wear or to gift.  With that in mind, here are some things to consider when choosing cufflinks:

Consider What’s Right for the Occasion

Occasion is probably the first thing most people think about when purchasing cufflinks. Chances are, you already have an occasion in mind, and that’s why you’re shopping.  However, although cufflinks are a great Santa's Boot cufflinks - choosing the right cufflink for holidaysaddition to almost any event, not every cufflink is necessarily appropriate for every occasion.  

For example, if you’re going to a white tie wedding, you’ll probably want to pick cufflinks that match the formality of the event and steer clear of silly or flashy cufflinks and pick a more elegant, refined pair of cufflinks.  You might want to consider our collection of engraved cufflinks.  Or look for ones that are pure silver, or silver and black with small crystals, like some of the ones here.

On the other hand, if you’re headed to a holiday party, you may want to wear cufflinks that are more reflective of your festive spirit, like the ones in this fun collection.

 

Make a Statement About Your Interests & Hobbies

Although you may not want to wear fun or flashy cufflinks to the most formal events, there are plenty of times when it’s completely appropriate to show off your interests and hobbies.  Cufflinks are one easy way to make a statement without saying a word.

If you enjoy surfing or sailing, you might like this selection of marine-focused cufflinks.

Red Ferrari Cufflinks - choosing the right cufflinks for your interests

Or perhaps cars are more your thing.  We have a fun collection of automobile-related cufflinks.

Maybe you have read every comic book, or seen every superhero movie ever produced.  We’ve got you covered there, too.  One of our licensed, themed collections may be just what you’re looking for.

Regardless, we have over 3,000 unique styles for you to explore.

 

Pick the Right Colors & Metals

When choosing cufflinks, you should also consider colors.  Silver, gold, white, and black are the easiest colors to match with an outfit, and more classic styles match these with crystals or gemstones.  However, brighter colors, like  red, pink, or purple, stand out more and may be a good choice for confident and stylish men who will pair them with suitable shirts and suits.  

 

Always Match Your Shirt

Cufflinks should match your shirt color, so you should choose cufflinks that will complement your shirt.

White shirts are very versatile and lend themselves well to a wide variety of cufflinks.  Here, you’re safe to play with colors and shapes, depending on your occasion.

Beautiful Sterling silver blue floral cufflinksBlue shirts are also classic and they pair well with cufflinks that have some blue in them.  You can choose cufflinks with different shades of blue, or stick with simple, elegant monochromatic options.  It’s easy to search by color: simply enter your search term and then use the filter choices to view cufflinks that match your selection.  Here are some by Baade that might work beautifully.

More and more often, it’s becoming appropriate to wear a wider variety of colors. As with blue shirts, try to match your cufflinks to your shirt color by filtering cufflinks to match the color or shade of your shirt.

Patterned shirts can seem daunting, but it’s not as challenging as you’d think as long as you stick to a single-colored cufflink.  Silver is fashionable and always acceptable, so by choosing silver you open up the possibility of subtly showing off your personal style through your choice of shape and design.

Engraving vs. Monograms: What’s the Difference?

It’s easy to get confused about the difference between engraving and monograms.  But although they seem similar, they are in actuality, quite different.  Let’s explore them a bit more.

 

Defining Each

According to the dictionary, a monogram is a set of entwined letters that is part of a decorative design. It’s often used as a logo or to identify a person or person’s possessions.  Most commonly, you’ll see the larger middle letter that refers to the person’s last name.  Many times, when couples are married, they create a monogram that is displayed on their napkins and party favors. Sometimes they even incorporate it into their attire as a symbol of their new union.

An engraving is different. Engraving is the process of cutting or carving a design into a hard surface.  Although anything can be engraved into a surface, it’s most common to engrave something into metal, glass, or wood.  And one of the most common things to have engraved into an object is a monogram!

So, monograms are a set of letters that can be printed or engraved.  Engraving is the process of carving a monogram into an object, like a cufflink or a money clip.

 

How Does Engraving Work?
