Today, I would like to feature a pair of cufflinks from the Classic range - Gold Snowflake Cufflinks.
This design is one of my favourites, because it looks really exquisite and expensive! It is especially relevant during the Christmas season, for personal use, or as an affordable and presentable gift below $20. Nonetheless, the classic design and plain gold colour allows great ease of matching with almost any shirt colour.
A tip on choosing and matching your cufflinks, is to match your cufflinks' colour to other smaller pieces of accessories. This pair of cufflinks particularly matches gold accessories, watches, and belt buckles; and/or any shades of neckties, bow ties, and shoes; formal occasions.

I’ve been distributing GreatValueBuys promotional flyers at Market Street Food Centre @ Golden Shoe for the past 2 days, and here are some of the reactions from people who received our flyer:
- “This is a good idea!”
- “Don’t need to use tissue anymore”
- (Initially rejected, but turned back) “This looks interesting, can I have one?”
- (I handed one to her colleague) “Can I have one too? Thank you!”
- (looked at the flyer, then turned to me and gave me an “amused” smile)
Some curious uncles and aunties saw people taking the flyers and came forward to get from me too. They’re not my target group, but I’m still thankful for their interest. J By the way, I distribute mainly to guys, so be happy if you got one, coz the women don’t get it~!
There are quite a number of guys who wear cufflinks at Raffles Place, more than what I initially thought. Cufflinks were traditionally designed especially for the upper class, and was a symbol of the elite. Today, cufflinks are a staple accessory in any man’s wardrobe. Indeed, from my observations, men no longer don cufflinks only when they are in suit and tie. Many men wear cufflinks even when they are not wearing ties.
Another observation I made was that more than 50% of the guys whom I spotted wearing cufflinks, were wearing plain, silver cufflinks. It seems to me that they do not view cufflinks as a fashion accessory, but are donning them simply because they have taken a liking to French cuff shirts….!? Guys…. BIG Mistake. Classic Cufflinks enable the wearer to exude an aura of self-confidence and success, while Novelty Cufflinks express the playful personality behind your polished style. Cufflinks are one of the few accessories you can use to stand out from the crowd, and your unique cufflink design can even be a nice talking point! For example, a pair of Novelty Smiley Cufflinks can brighten up your (and someone else's) day, and a pair of Bullseye Cufflinks can bring out the go-getter attitude in you. This Christmas season, why not don a pair of Gold Snowflake Cufflinks to get those around you into the festive mood!
