Previously, we began a journey to help you understand the anatomy of a pair of cufflinks. Today, we take on the topic of the cufflink post. Although this part is the most critical part of the cufflink it is unseen.
The cufflink post connects the face of the cufflink to the toggle, ball, or latch in the back. Many times the post of the cufflink is curved to fit around the wrist and also prevent rotation of your cuff link. The post is usually made of steel or aluminum (but it can be made of silk) and is usually solid or of one piece. However, some of this type of post are dual posted in order to attach to the toggle (one of several types of backings). The solid neck of a cufflink allows for a better and more secure fit to your French cuff sleeve.
Below you can see some different examples of solid posts. Some are elegantly simple, while others can be elaborate.
Chain Link Post
In the United Kingdom it is popular to wear a cufflink with a chain-link post connecting the cufflinks face and cufflinks back. Unlike a solid post, a chain-link post is loose and may need to be wrapped through the back cufflink hole a few times to provide a proper fit. Consequently, this is not as popular in the United States or Canada as it is in the United Kingdom. It’s most common to find the chain-link post in vintage or antique designs.
Even though others may not see the post when you’re styling your cufflinks, it’s a critical part of the cufflink anatomy.

Although St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish feast day celebration, it’s celebrated around the globe with beer, kisses, and lots of green!
A Little History
According the the Encyclopaedia Britannica: St. Patrick was born in Roman Britain in the late 4th century. After he was kidnapped at the age of 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave, he escaped and later returned to convert the Irish to Christianity. By the time of his death on March 17, 461, he had established monasteries, churches, and schools. Eventually, many legends grew up around him, including one that he drove the snakes out of Ireland and another that he used the shamrock to explain the Trinity.
