Forget top hats, goggles and pith helmets. No truly sartorial man should ever wear shirts with buttons on the cuff, especially if he claims to be a steampunk. A true steampunk, or Victorian gent (God Bless Her), should wear shirts with double cuffs so that he can place upon them cufflinks that not only show how much of a steampunk he is, but which also show others just how stylish he is.
For a couple of years now, I’ve been looking for cufflinks that I can wear both to work, and when I dress in my steampunk clothing. I have to say that I have a weakness for cufflinks, as I think they’re marvellous. Unfortunately, I have been completely unable to find cufflinks that appealed to my quirky steampunk nature.
Until now. Finally, after years of me saying, “I want some steampunk cufflinks”, the subtle hint has wormed its way into my wife’s mind and so onedottyduck has started to produce steampunk cufflinks that not only would I wear, I would actually buy. Filled with cogs galore, and coming in a number of colours, they look truly marvellous. She has even started to create word-based ones as well, which are probably more diesel punk in look, but which a steampunk could easily wear and get away with.
Currently, all stock being made is going towards Dysprosium/Eastercon2015, so if you want to order some, you’re going to have to wait a little bit!
