“I wear Charvet French-cuff shirts all the time. But I travel a lot, and I kept losing my cuff links—they would just disappear. A couple of years ago, I was in a rush, and all I could find were these garbage ties. Now I go into bakeries all over the place, looking for the gold or silver ones they use. I’ve stopped buying cuff links entirely; I only use bakery ties—that’s what I like to call them. When you’re in a pinch, they’re a great emergency aid. Not good, great.”

• If you’re going to go for Wayne’s trick, just remember: Do it with confidence. You will get comments.

Shirt and pocket square by Charvet. Sports jacket by Richard Anderson, London. Glasses by Oliver Peoples.

I find this emergency solution more attractive.

Good idea! I've repeatedly used paperclips as collar stays when in a pinch!

I'm wondering, if you buy these and remember to bring them with you (i.e. while travelling), couldn't you just as well have brought a pair of real cuffs? If you forget your cuffs I don't think it's likely that you'll remember the "emergency cuffs" either.

I'm more worried about the edges of those emergency cufflinks tearing up my shirt, though maybe hey aren't as sharp as they look in the picture.

I just keep a few pairs of silk knots or these little plastic 'MOP' double sided buttons (like $2 a pair or less) hanging around.

I keep a gray and blue pair of silk knots in my 'go kit' in case I find I forgot my links while on the road.
