I sometimes wonder if people look down on me because I donât wear cufflinks.
I work in the investment banking market. Everyone, Iâm not exaggerating, wears cufflinks. This dawned on me about a month ago and Iâve been looking at everyoneâs wrists since then. Of course, Iâm only talking about men-so I hope they donât think something is up.
I started asking around about this. One of my colleagues told me, âIf you want to work in the City, you gotta wear cufflinks.â I work in the City. I donât.
I donât see the purpose of cufflinks. It seems like a superfluous bit of jewellery that men have taken to wearing. I donât like that. Iâm all for looking good. Iâm for taking showers, combing hair, ironing shirts, and shining shoes, but I donât get wearing a bit of metal that replaces buttons as being that cool.
