WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN THE TYPES OF BACKINGS YOU OFFER?
We offer several different cufflinks backings, and here are our most common fixtures:
Bullet and Torpedo Backings are our most common backings. Easy to use, bullet and torpedo back closures utilize a simple swivel mechanism. Simply flip the backing vertically 90 degrees into the post and slip through your cuff. Once through the cuff, flip the backing back another 90 degrees to secure in place.
Whale Back Closures will flip flat against the straight post for an easy insertion into your cuff. Flip the tail back to secure the cufflink.
Fixed Backings typically feature a curved post and are constructed as one solid structure as the backing does not move. Since no parts move it can be a little more difficult to insert into the cuff, but it allows us to add unique designs and brand logos to the backing. The best way to affix these to your cuff is to maneuver the backing through the first part of the cuff, and then through the second part of the cuff. Once inserted, adjust the cufflink as necessary to ensure it is comfortable and secure. Sometimes fixed backings are reversible, leaving you multiple options of how to wear your pair.
Chains are the classic cufflinks backing. A small chain joins the two faces of the cufflinks, giving the wearer multiple options on which face to display. This style can require a little more effort to put on (similar to the fixed backings) but they provide more comfort for those who prefer a looser cuff.
