Hello I'm image consultant Susan Bigsby at In this clip I'm going to show you how to put on cuff links. Steve may I have your shirt please and you as well? There is no more formal shirt than a tuxedo shirt and since he happens to have one on, you take your cuff link and you're going to take the top part of the cuff, put the bottom part of the cuff link into the button hole then you are going to take the underside of that shirt sleeve and you're going to find the underneath buttonhole, then you put it all the way through. Then you find the underneath buttonhole of the bottom of the cuff, put the bottom of the cuff link through it which it should go very easily and then the underneath side of the outside cuff and you put it through and then you adjust your sleeve, you adjust your cuff and you have a perfectly positioned cuff link into a French cuff of a dress shirt. Don't forget to button the button on the upper part of the dress shirt. The thing you want to make sure about is that once you have got the cuff link in place then you check all around your cuff to make sure it's even and since this is quite well starched. It could be a little tricky to just adjust the cuff so that it's nice and even all the way around. You never want it to be uneven or messy looking and that can be tricky since sometimes these are really really well starched but you always want the top part of the cuff link on the top part of the arm. Now there are all kinds of styles of cuff links that you can choose. You can certainly wear the ones with a tux that come with the tux sets but you can also buy very very nice cuff links of fine quality or you can buy cuff links in any price level whatsoever that look very nice as well. This is Susan Bigsby. Thank you for watching.
