Emergency Cufflinks.

Picture of Emergency Cufflinks.
This is what happened to me the other day. I had my sleeves rolled up. After reaching office I realized it was one of those shirts with cufflink holes and of course I left the cufflinks at home!

Easy fix, all you need is a U-clip! (or a 'paper clip' depending on where you live)

Step 2: Step 2 - Prepare

Fold the sleeve just as you would if you were to wear an actual cufflink.

Step 3: Step 3 - Through one side

Bring both ends close and secure the other side the same way.

I had to use these this week away on business..... Worked brilliantly and agree that they look like a minimal cuff link

The square style paperclips look surprisingly good - I think it would be easy to look at these and think they were a minimal cufflink, not office supplies. I'll remember this in case I ever forget mine.

Hey thanks! This is an emergency fix. So if you're planning to gift it, then maybe you could decorate it or, personalize it. Better than gifting plain paper clips :D
