TCU Cufflinks for Proud Students and Graduates
Before clothes were held together with buttons or zippers, cufflinks were a crucial part of formal menswear. However, that doesn't mean this style is outdated; to the contrary, the cufflink is a great way for a stylish gentlemen to add decorative flair to any suit.
For men who are proud students or alumni of Texas Christian University, as well as those who are fans of the school's sporting teams, TCU cufflinks are the perfect gift this holiday season. These cufflinks allow him to show his pride in his school or team while looking sharp at board meetings, holiday parties, and other occasions where formal wear is required.
This gift is available in a variety of styles and materials, with prices varying accordingly. One option is a classic purple and silver rendering of the TCU, horned frog logo, which pairs the mascot with the TCU acronym. This particular selection is nickel plated with an enamel finish, and the design is officially licensed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
You can also find a round, silver version of the TCU insignia, which is a good choice for a man who likes classic, minimalist styles. For a significantly higher price tag, the same style is available in 14 karat gold. Men who have a more unique, quirky style may prefer the horned frog alone, without the TCU acronym. Depending on the cufflink material and the design choice, some styles can be engraved for a special occasion, or that special someone.
For best results, cufflinks should be paired with a shirt with French cuffs. This style has extra long sleeves, but no buttons. Instead, it has a hole on each side of the cuff to accommodate the cufflinks. The cuffs are folded back evenly and attached together with the cufflinks. Cufflinks can have a variety of closures; while the traditional style included a chain link, today a "bullet back" is much more common. This construction is similar to the mechanism that closes a briefcase.
TCU cufflinks are the perfect choice for any alumnus or fan, whether as a graduation gift for a son or grandson or a stocking stuffer for a spouse. They also make an ideal groomsman's gift for a wedding or bachelor party. And today, cufflinks aren't just for men; women's shirts with French cuffs are now manufactured as well. No matter what the occasion, a gift of cufflinks is truly a special choice.
