Supporting Our Troops

airborneOne thing that we take seriously here at JustCufflinks.com is supporting all the brave men and women serving in all the branches of our armed forces worldwide. Regardless of how you feel about the military and all the politics behind it, the soldiers at home and abroad deserve our respect and support. Without the sacrifices they and the millions before them have made, we wouldn’t live in a country as great as the one we do.

Everyone has a different way of showing support, but we love wearing and gifting military themed cufflinks (would you expect anything less!). We’re proud to carry cufflinks for the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. We also carry many historically themed cufflinks that feature famous airplanes and other military symbols.

Military cufflinks make a wonderful gift for any collector, and they also make a great gift for those in the service that have recently been promoted or even just finished boot camp. Let them know you stand behind them and send them a pair of cufflinks just to show you care!

St. Patrick’s Day Cufflinks

Show Off Your Irish Pride!

Show Off Your Irish Pride!

Are you a proud Irishman?  Married to a proud Irishman?  The time to celebrate your Irish heritage is almost here.  At JustCufflinks.com, we have a few sets of St. Patrick’s Day cufflinksavailable for you to order.  But don’t wait too long to place your online order, because you want to make sure that your cufflinks will arrive before March 17th.

If you work in an environment where you need to dress professionally, or you need to wear a specific uniform, then St. Patrick’s Day cufflinks will still allow you to let others know that you are proud to be Irish.  Plus, if you are wearing your cufflinks, you will be able to avoid being pinched, because you are technically wearing green.

So if you are Irish, or you know someone who is, make sure to check out our selection of St. Patrick’s Day cufflinks at JustCufflinks.com.

Show Off Your Gold Medal Style!

1160978_skiingLike most of the world, we’ve been enjoying the recent coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympics and cheering on our favorite athletes. We’ve enjoyed the rush of seeing Shaun White and Apolo Ohno win their gold medals, and are eager to catch the rest of the events over the upcoming week.

If you’re like us and can’t get enough of all your favorite winter sports, why not bring that fervor to the office with a set of cufflinks? We’ve got a couple of pairs that are the perfect gift for every Olympics fan.

Sterling Silver Skier Cufflinks – These elegant skiing cufflinks capture the beauty and grace of this downhill sport. These are detailed right now to the miniature ski poles. Even if you’re stuck in the office, you can almost feel the snow beneath your skis when you wear these cufflinks!

Sterling Silver Snowboard Cufflinks – If you like to live on the edge and enjoy the creative flips and jumps of snowboarding, you’ll love these snowboard cufflinks. You might not want to wear them when you’re out on the mountain shredding, but you’ll probably think about it!

Men’s Hairstyle Tips For 2010

935170_cest_moiIf you’ve been going to the same barber since you were 12, or you haven’t changed your haircut since your mom was using a bowl to cut a straight line, it’s time to upgrade your hairstyle for 2010. There are a lot of options out there for the well dressed man today, and there’s no excuse to not have hair that looks as good as your new suit and a tasteful set of cufflinks.

  1. Choose the right tools. You need a good sturdy comb and brush in order to style your hair. Don’t skimp here or you’ll have trouble creating the look you want, even with the right haircut and products. And of course, they don’t have to be expensive to be well made!
  2. Products are important! When it comes to hair care, you really do get what you pay for. Look for salon quality products that will hold your hair all day and actually nourish each hair follicle to keep it shiny and healthy.
  3. Choose a classic cut. You might love the look of a mohawk (not at the office we hope!) or some other complex cut, but will you have the time in the morning to style your hair? Choosing a cut that’s easy to maintain will ensure it’s simple for you to look your best. A side part or some messy bed head is simple to do even when you’re in a rush!

Behind The Cufflinks: Jade

jadeOne of the things we love most about cufflinks is the huge variety of styles that they come in. There are cufflinks in just about every metal and stone on the planet today. But if you’re not familiar with the stones that make up our cufflinks, you might not understand the true worth of these wonderful accessories. To that end, we’ve decided to start examining the different materials that make up some of our favorite cufflinks.

Some of the most unique cufflinks we have in stock right now are made out of jade. This stone has long been used in jewelry and is loved for how well it can be carved. This ornamental stone may come in a variety of colors, though the most common is green. It is most famous for the carvings that the ancient Chinese used it for.

Today, jade is most commonly used in jewelry. A ring of jade was even featured in the 2008 Olympic medals. We love jade cufflinks just as much as we love ladies jade necklaces and earrings. This ancient stone is always in style!

Valentine’s Day Gifts He’ll Love!

tazWe can hardly believe how fast the time has flown. There’s only a week left in January and before you know it Valentine’s Day will be upon us! We’re still recovering from Christmas and New Year’s, but we can’t deny the charm of February 14th.

Some men can be notoriously hard to buy gifts for, especially on Valentine’s Day. If he’s not a big fan of candy, what else can you do? We polled everyone in our office and came up with some great suggestions:

  • Cook for him. A home cooked meal and hand made dessert are sure to warm his heart! Everyone loves to be pampered, so creating a whole night just for him is a fun gift to give.

  • Romance themed cufflinks. If he loves to look good, why not spruce up his sleeves with some new cufflinks? We have a full line of wedding and romance themed cufflinks that will do the trick! Even better, right now you can get him two for the price of one during our Valentine’s Day Sale!

  • Be practical. Does he need a new wallet? Are his favorite sneakers looking a little worn? Buy him some brand new accessories and keep him looking great!

Do you have a hard time shopping for the man in your life? If you have any tips or great stories, let us know in the comments and we’ll share them!

Dressing For Success On Interviews

1196040_stop_and_go_2There are few times when your clothes make more of an impression than on a job interview. From the second you walk in the door, the way you present yourself can make a power impression on the company you are interviewing with. But what kind of things should you focus on when dressing for your big interview? Here are four of the most important things to consider before leaving the house:

  • Avoid cologne. You don’t want to overwhelm the interviewer with scent, so even if it’s part of your normal routine, skip the cologne. It can be overpowering if you’re chatting one on one in a small office for a long time.
  • Dress up. We know it sounds obvious, but you need to look presentable for your interview. In most industries, this calls for a classic suit. Even in more casual industries, you should dress a little bit nicer than everyone in the office would dress.
  • Watch the details. Do your shoes and belt match? Are they clean? It sounds basic, but you want to look put together and not like you just grabbed a random outfit out of your closet. If they expect you to pay attention to detail in your job, they’ll want to see that quality in your dress.
  • Accessories. Don’t go overboard. Avoid most jewelry – all you really need is a watch and cufflinks. Anything else ends up being overkill. Carefully selected accessories should compliment your look, not overwhelm it!
