So pretty much every time I wear cufflinks, I get annoyed at how they interfere while working. I always have to twist the ends of the shirt so that the cufflinks do not lie underneath my wrist.

Anyone else noticed this or am I doing something wrong here?

Erm this may or may not help- but get the cufflinks that are made of elastic thread? ( the ones that come with shirts?) Maybe that'll help? Because they aren't made of metal and they still do the job just fine!! I have a lot of guy friends who used to get this problem and they sorted it out using the elastic ones

Sure, but that doesn't help me with all the metal ones I have currently. I do have one that is essentially just thread and that's fine. But I was more thinking about metal ones and if this is common or not.

Hmmm I see, how do you have so many?

It is common!! They complain about it all the time- one of my Friends just ends up taking them off and sticking them in his pocket!!

I know what you mean! It can be reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaally annoying, but they look so good. I had a shop around, and managed to find some that had a bit more of a 'bend' in the stem which helped...

i am wearing my lovely metal 'links right now... as we speak !!! they are not actually touching the desk because the keyboard is at the edge...

it is a simple adjustment to the cuff to ensure that the 'links are not under your wrist...

Simple?

My shirts just seem to keep on turning til the cuff is back next to the wrist or almost under it...what's this trick?

I have a collection of high-end products including Hugo and Ryan. It is most certainly not the quality of what I am wearing.

Eugh.

I have started using a powerball again. Maybe that will help.

As you put your wrists down to the desk, make sure they are twisted so that the lower edge of the cufflink, ie the inside/lower surface/peg is positioned face down to the desk and touches down first. Then the weight of your arms/hands relaxing onto the desk surface twists the shirt material so that the cufflink sits comfortably on the outside of your wrist, rather than underneath it, and the feature face of the link faces upwards. You can even twist your wrists further round to further relax tension in the sirt material if you want.

It soon becomes second nature just to flick your wrists outwards slightly so the links sit flat beside your wrist rather than under it. The feeling of the weight on the wrist is a feature of wearing cufflinks.

It was my first pair so it was a bit saddening, but they weren't particularly fancy.
