Anthony Giglio tweeted this image of ad hoc cuff links someone at Crunch Gym helped him make out of binder clips as he was getting ready to head to a lunch. They are forthright and strangely chic…because they are so….off-the-cuff. THAT’S what that expression means: “ not prepared in advance : done without planning or preparation”.
We’ve long relied on binder/presentation clips to secure buttonless jackets and sweaters, as well as shawls. We prefer the stainless clips to the black and keep assortment of different sizes on hand to suit the size to the purpose (12 mini clips – (5/8 x 1/4); 12 small clips – (3/4 x 5/16); 6 medium clips – (1 1/4 x 5/8) come in a pack of 30 for $7).
Sometimes, we soften the shine with a fine grit sanding sponge.
The clips also great for clipping packages of tea and other foods closed for storage….
