    TODAY ITS OKAY TO GRIP IT AND RIP IT

    GOLF DAY

    Its time to pull those clubs out of storage, dust them off, and get ready to hit the green again! That’s right, it’s Golf Day! Heralding the beginning of the more Golfer friendly part of the year, Golfers Day’s origin is shrouded in the myth and legend of this particular sport. Some people say its origins lay in 1916, when the first professional golf tournament was held on this day.

     

    The Winky&Dutch Link Charm Bracelet $38.00

    Others claim that the first tubular steel golf club shaft was allowed to be used in championship play for the first time on this day. Whatever the case, get on your favorite Golf Sweater, it’s time to play hookie from work and tee off!

    Adjustable Band Bangle Bracelet $24.00

     

    Work: skip it

    GOLF: Grip it and rip it.

    #TBT MOMENT CIRCA 1999 - JUST-A-SWINGIN'

    SWING DEFINED BY MERRIAM-WEBSTER:

     jazz that is played (as by a big band) with a steady beat and that uses the harmonic structures of popular songs and the blues as a basis for improvisations and arrangements

      

    The original 'Swing Era' had a comeback moment in the 90's as sort of a backlash against everyone dressing like a 'grunge' zombie from the pacific northwest.  Our cufflinks were cited as a key accessory for completing the look.

     

     

     

     

     

    WINKY&DUTCH cufflinks were, and still are considered a must have item for the well dressed man.  Scotty Morris and his book 'The Swing Book', a bible of sorts of all things 'Swing' & 'Swing Related' cited our cuff links, specifically our Bettie Page cufflinks the perfect finishing touch for the 'Man of Swing'

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Bettie Page Cufflinks are no longer available but we will happily give you a free pair of our newest cufflinks if you are one of the first 10 people who do the following

Entertainment Weekly editors  loved the cufflinks, referring to them as 'Kitschy' in the headline, now we prefer to look at them as timeless, and uniquely personalized to ones own taste. Most importantly,  Entertainment Weekly referred to the cufflinks as, 'the way to add style to your life tout de suite" then they bestowed Winky&Dutch with the title, The Accessory Masters! Lucky for us, Winky&Dutch still holds the title of Accessory Master and our gorgeous American Made accessories combined with our exclusive Artistic Asset Library, are STILL the way to add style to your life tout de suite.
