Though it’s just about time to swap summer-weight fabrics for those more fitting for fall, I wanted to wring one more look out of my seersucker suit. From summer wedding to business to suit separates, I’ve dedicated the past couple of weeks to showing off its versatility. So before this suit is retired for the season, here’s a nod to classic style with a little bit of a personal touch via some interesting cuff links.

Cuff links are a great way to show some personality and add some individuality to a look. The ones I’m wearing are a nod to my bicycle racing days. You can’t see it, but instead of the usual clasp on the back, the chain ring’s crank arm and pedal keeps them secure. Never go overboard or try to be too clever with these. Stay away from novelty cuff links, like rubber chickens. If you’re wearing them to get a reaction, think twice. Details should be noticed upon closer inspection; they shouldn’t scream, “Hey, look at me.” Keep it classy.
I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of brown. Definitely not a typical summer color, but I’ve worn it often and I’m fixing to wear a lot of it this fall. Especially once I get this vintage number back from my tailor.
Tell me about your favorite pair of cuff links and what they say about you.
Thanks for reading.
