The underrated piece in men’s formal attire

We had this subject during 4th year called “Construction Project Management” where we were taught on how to — of course — manage a project. Our very creative teacher, Sir Kenneth, came up with the idea of dividing the class into groups which will serve as different contractors of a project which he owns. He acts as the project owner by the way.

I was grouped with my 3rd year classmates and Extreme Development Corporation was born. We were composed of 10 members and each had a position in the company. If I am not mistaken, I was assigned in procurement. I never knew what it was because what I actually mostly did was to edits our company’s “Company Profile” “Mission and Vision” and the Company header.

The girls had the chance to take somehow-formal photos but for the boys, I just tried my best to make them look formal in the only one piece of editable formal attire that I found on the internet. I mirrored the clothes to make it look random and this is how it looked:

Hahaha! I know, it’s very obvious that they were wearing exactly the same clothes well anyways, it’s just for the header but when it comes to actual formal attires that a professional man should wear, the most essential pieces were the coat and tie, polo, slacks and matching shoes. But as I examined some of the professional working men that I see on TV, I can’t help but notice this tiny thing on the edge of their long sleeves that seem to be keeping it from hanging apart.

My curiosity lead me to Google-ing it and I found out that those were cufflinks. And for a clearer explanation about the said object, Wikipedia says that, “A cufflink (also cuff link or cuff-link) is a decorative fastener worn by men or women to fasten the two sides of the cuff on a dress shirt or blouse.”

Isn’t it amazing? The cuff links? Often unnoticed yet it completes somebody’s formal wear. They even come in different designs and as for my groupmates, I recommend they try to look for suitable Mens Cufflinks if they are planning to actually wear formal attires someday when they become real engineers.
