It is widely held that sometime during the reign of King Louis XIV (1643 – 1715) a short link of chain between two identical glass buttons replaced “cuff strings” as the favoured mode of holding one’s shirt closed at the wrist.
Which is very good news because who would want a piece of string for Christmas?
“Bill Hornets here: we’ve taken 20% off all of our cufflinks for Christmas. Many named brands, and all of them made in England.
Keep stylish and carry on. That is all.”

P.S. “Bill Hornets here again. If, however, you really do want to buy someone a piece of string for Christmas (and who am I to judge?) then here’s the website for the hardware shop on High Street Kensington. Tell ’em Bill sent you.”
