One-on-one combat is one of the oldest traditions mankind has. It links us, particularly men, with our forefathers who had to do battle to protect what was theirs, to conquer a territory, to defend one’s honor, and to beat some manners into somebody. There are numerous martial art sports, but Boxing is very much western civilization’s approach to them. It used established rules of conduct, based on the Marquess of Queensbury Rules, to make sure the combat was between two and only two combatants, that they fight in a pre-arranged location, that the contenders are of roughly the same size and weight, that they keep their blows above the belt but away from the throat (the rabbit punch), and when one is unable to fight for any reason that the other contestant does not continue to attack. This, and the addition of padded gloves has made melee combat much safer, but there have been accidents, injuries, and even deaths. Boxing is a sport of endurance, patience, and timing, of lightning jabs and quick defenses all encapsulated into a match that never gets old to watch. These Boxing Cufflinks are an excellent gift for those who you know enjoys the sport, and are excellent to wear when you go down to the arena to watch the matches. Gold cufflinks and sports cufflinks offer a way to personalize your formal attire while remaining your class and distinction that doesn’t require one to dress elaborately, especially to a boxing match where formal wear, while not expected, is appreciated. Doing so adds class to the sweet science, elevating it up from the more mundane and vulgar forms of combat sports that have recently seen popularity.

We often see jerseys and caps and t-shirts that has the emblem of the New York Yankees pinstripe uniform on them but it is quite rare to see the same iconic prints on cufflinks. Not anymore as many accessories enthusiasts wear New York Yankees pinstripe cufflinks not only during the games but elsewhere.
Fans of major league baseball can now flaunt their love for the game anywhere they want, even in a place where baseball caps just won’t do. Hint: formal events.

Purchasing one for you and that friend of yours will seal your friendship bonds—a friendship that does not only last until the game of your favorite major league baseball team ends.
One may find it surprising how very cosmopolitan Wallstreet individuals would pay anything for a chance to take off their coats and ties and get all muddy and damp with sweat to take part in a huge gathering of aggressive adolescence and post-adolescence possessed by school spirit.
The very idea of competition among colleges and universities is as trivial. How can four years of living in a dormitory and the nearest fast food chain be enough to develop in an individual a sense of pride for an institution that aims to put him in the same box he has been put into since he began calling himself literate? How could someone feel that way on his alma mater to the point that he would kill for the last pair of college cufflinks available?
Come to think of it, school pride does not really begin on the first day of college. In high school, one would meet people whose goal in life is to go to an Ivy League university, if not, to a university where the most successful member of the family went.
America has always been a nation that has loved American football. It has been one of the most important sports in US history but lately something else is trying to take over. That something is soccer. Soccer has never been that interesting before now. It was always much more fun watching men tackle each other for the ball and throwing it for miles. Well not any more. Why has soccer become so popular I hear you ask? That will be because of a certain Mr David Beckham. For those of you who don’t know, David Beckham is an English football player. LA Galaxy bought David Beckham from Real Madrid for a rather hefty sum. Before playing for Real Madrid David Beckham spent many years playing in England for the infamous Manchester United. This is where he was first discovered in the under 18’s team and has since gone on to Captain the England team for many years in a row. It was believed that David Beckham would draw in a big crowd to his matches and would raise the profile of American soccer. Whether he has managed it or not is unknown because he has recently gone on loan to AC Milan to play the rest of the season out there. If you are a “footie” fan and love watching soccer then why not try a pair of soccer themed cufflinks? These silver cufflinks have footballs on the front and are made from solid nickel. They would look great with any color suit and will really show you’re love for the game. If soccer isn’t your thing there are many different types of sports cufflinks so you can pick from golf all the way to shooting!

Did you ever notice how the NFL players clean up after a big game? On the field, they are warriors, with mouth guards, helmets and paint on their cheeks. Later in the interviews they are transformed; clean, polished and sharp. Some of the veterans are post game analysts and are instantly recognizable in the crowd of non-descript sports presenters. These guys are always head to toe style.
Being men of means, they usually have designer suits and plenty of bling, sometimes overstated but always a treat for the eye. Some of them even sport old school hats or scarves, they know how to accessorize and they do it well. I like the nod to the eras gone by of gentlemen who always wore suits and hats and took pride in their appearance.
Another thing I notice is their shirts, always sharp and cufflinks are essential to enhance the look. Style like that insists on cufflinks. So if you have a football loving man in your life and he already has the jersey, the socks, and the inevitable baseball hat, then why not mix it up and give him a way to emulate the players’ style off the pitch? Let him show his support in a classier way. The NFL cufflinks (such as the 1966 Commemorative Super Bowl cufflinks) might be the only way you can persuade him to try the look while at the same time pledging his allegiance to his favorite team!
Many corporations are into standardization because it makes sense. They standardize work stations, office spaces, and they also standardize workers – through the uniforms! Now, that steals the creativity right out of you, and the venue to express yourself, when you are required to wear something similar to what your seatmate – and everybody in the room – is wearing. For a girl, that limits expression of self to just a very limited items – hair, bags, shoes. And for a guy…well, shoes? But there’s one other thing that you can use to express yourself without violating your company’s code of ethics. The cufflinks!
Cufflinks nowadays are not devoid of art and beauty, and are no longer exclusive to men. In fact, they are a piece of art in themselves. There is a myriad of cufflinks out there which will really allow you to personalize your style, even if you are wearing a uniform.

Now, that doesn’t have to be expensive because real fashion and beauty can be had with the correct combination of effort and style, as all the trendy ladies out there will agree! And when you walk in to your standardized office with the standardized chair and the standardized work station, you know you are a cut from the rest because you have something they don’t – the ever glam cufflinks.

Nfl season isn’t quite here yet but it’s almost around the corner! Can you smell the stadium hotdogs and the 12$ beers? I know I can’t wait and that’s why I wear my nfl cufflinks throughout the year to show off my love for the nfl and also to remember to myself that buying beer at the local supermarket is much much cheaper than at the stadium. These pairs of cufflinks are roughly 4 times the price of a stadium beer but hey, these will last you a lifetime.
