I make a simple cuff link with a 10 ga bar and connecting post. The bar is 5/8" long and the post is 3/8" long. Attached is a photo (it’s an optical illusion that makes the connector seem the same size as the bar). Yesterday a customer said her boyfriend lost one of his cufflinks. She wasn’t blaming me at all, but it set me wondering if I could make these more secure by shortening the connector and lengthening the bar. Or if my 10 ga is too thin to be secure. Is there a standard range of these measurements? My first version of these used a disk instead of a bar, which I might go back to.
I have a French cuff shirt I got at Goodwill for photographing them, but as I am a woman, I have never worn cufflinks so I don’t have an idea about how they work in the real world.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
