    #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'

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.
