Bespoke shirts, ties and sterling silver cufflinks: A match made in heaven – who knew?
Most would agree that elegant, bespoke shirts and stylish sterling silver cufflinks go hand-in-hand; just like bacon and eggs, or cheese and wine, they are the perfect complement to each other. Whether it’s a formal occasion or a more casual affair, when paired with a stylish bespoke shirt and tie, cufflinks are the ideal finishing touch, if you are looking to add a little flare and complete an outfit.
With this in mind, we at One Bond Street, purveyors of the finest sterling silver cufflinks in London, have joined forces with Sartoria San Giorgio, the luxury Naples-based tailors, famed for their traditional, Italian, bespoke shirts and ties, to show our customers just how well these luxury goods complement each other. After all, wouldn’t every sharp Italian, bespoke shirt look even better when adorned with a set of stylish silver cufflinks?
When you’re planning on sporting cufflinks, however, it’s important to make sure they complement your shirt, tie, jewellery and whatever else you may be wearing; that they suit the occasion and don’t take too much attention away from the rest of your outfit. If you are wearing one of Sartoria San Giorgio’s crisp, white, bespoke shirts, for instance, then it’s likely that a subtle yet stylish set of sterling silver cufflinks will be exactly what you need. If you’ve chosen a gold bangle or dazzling blue tie, though, you may want a pair that are a little more colourful; something bolder and brighter will do the trick.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that cufflinks are the preserve of black tie events, just like jewelry, you can wear them on your shirtsleeves regardless of the occasion: the possibilities are endless! Of course, the perfect combination will always be a sharp, white, bespoke shirt, tailored by the likes of Sartoria San Giorgio, teamed with a slick black tie and a tasteful set of sterling silver cufflinks. But, you can dress them down nicely too, with a smart pair of jeans or casual chinos to inject a little pizzazz into your day-time attire. You can wear them to parties, to work or simply day-to-day. You can even throw on a stylish bangle or necklace for a casual yet classic look.
There are some who shy away from cufflinks altogether, thinking them unnecessary, too fiddly or simply not thinking about them at all, but with our latest collaboration with Sartoria San Giorgio, it will be difficult not to appreciate the classic and elegant pairing of traditional, bespoke shirts and tailor made ties with quality sterling silver cufflinks.
In honour of One Bond Street’s collaboration with Sartoria San Giorgio, we’ll be offering our customers a 10% discount on all bespoke shirts and ties purchased from this luxury tailors, so that they can be paired with some of our finest sterling silver cufflinks. A tasteful, bespoke shirt deserves to be adorned with a stylish set of sterling silver cufflinks – it’s a timeless and classic combination and the perfect way to complete an outfit.
