This Day in History: Feb. 20, 1962

Feb. 20, 1962

The first American orbits the Earth. In 1962 Astronaut John Glenn Jr. was successfully launched into space aboard the Friendship 7. Glenn, a highly decorated pilot from his flights during WWII and the Korean War, was among 7 men chosen to become America's first astronauts. Glenn orbited around the Earth 3 times before he descended back into the Earth's atmosphere after problems began to occur aboard the spacecraft. Glenn landed in the Atlantic Ocean and was picked up by the USS Noa, with his first words after stepping out, "It was hot in there." Glenn became a national hero and even met with JFK at Cape Canaveral.

The space race was a heated one between the the Soviet Union and the United States beginning when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 on October 4, 1957. The end is not as definitive, some speculate the Apollo moon landing in 1969 finished it. Russians claim that by sending the first man into space they won the unofficial race, others believe the US claim victory because they landed on the moon first.

No matter the winner, the tension filled race between the two superpowers became less of a nail biter. Now we can look back on our accomplishments and appreciate them for their worth rather than their numerical order.

Commemorate this day in history with this pair of Rocket Cufflinks by designer Ravi Ratan.

Made from .925 sterling silver you can re-live your childhood dreams of space travel in style. Engrave the backing for added personalization or commemorate a special date.

Its The Look

A survey of 1,000 women reveled what kind of look they want their man to have. Posed with the question - What do you find attractive in a prospective partner?- women have made it abundantly clear they no longer endure the scruffy tops and jeans or a man with a slumped posture.

In these tough economic times, your reputation and the look you project are of high importance. The citation of classic gentlemen figures like Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy or James Bond star Daniel Craig, men who are well-proportioned and well-dressed and who always carry themselves well, were recognized as the look they are drawn to.

Alan Cannon-Jones, senior lecturer in tailoring at the London College of Fashion and an expert on menswear, said the current economic crisis meant women were more likely to be attracted to men wearing smart, tailored garments.

He said: "Because of the financial situation, many guys are smartening up their look. Even if they do not have much money, they are keen to project the perception that they do."

Sales of cufflinks and ties are on the rise, making a smarter look within your reach.
Before you resort to or eHarmony, give your look the adjustment it needs to project who you are and you might find once the distressed jeans were replaced with a crisper look, the pair of links on your cuff might not be the only couple in your future!

GQ's 10 Most Stylish Men in America

GQ searched the world to find a collection of guys that would be a crime not to take cues from.

"Real men with real style."

Justin Timberlake

The man who helped bring fedoras—and sweater vests, and beards, and three-piece suits, and skinny ties—back.

Mark Ronson

Ronson wears the of-the-moment uniform—slim suit, skinny tie—in such a way that doesn’t make you want to punch him. How? He respects details like the taper of the pants and the length of the tie—and he backs the Mr. Success look up with actual success.

Alexi Lubomirski

Lubomirski is a photographer you could easily mistake for a model—one cast in a fashion spread called “How to Achieve Timeless Elegance in a Blue Shirt and Jeans.” Born in England and raised in France and Botswana, he’s worldly enough to pull off undoing that third shirt button.

André Balazs

If you’ve ever set foot on an AndrĂ© Balazs property—the legendary Chateau Marmont, say—you know his philosophy: Style isn’t about exclusivity or trends; it’s about honesty, authenticity, and above all else, comfort.

Kanye West

Stylistically, Kanye no longer seems like a sugar-deprived kid in a candy store. Yes, he’s still flashy and attitudinal. But whereas he used to look like he was flaunting all those luxury labels, now he looks like he’s expressing himself through them.

Sid Mashburn (and staff)

Sid Mashburn is a throwback to a time when looking sharp was about a lot more than labels. His philosophy—the one reflected in his Atlanta store—is that good style is about knowing how to tie a tie, dress right for an occasion, and be comfortable in your own skin.


Glenn O’Brien

Find us an icon of New York’s punk/new-wave scene who looks as bold today as he did in 1978. Fact is, most are dead, washed-up, or worse—banking. The secret to Glenn O’Brien’s style longevity: He hasn’t strayed from his roots.
The Atlanta-based rapper rejects hip-hop’s merry-go-round of trends in favor of tailored blazers, jeans of distinctly hip-hopian proportions, and one trademark: a hat cocked at an extreme angle. Only problem now? He’s due for prison time. But look for him to pick up where he left off—fashionwise, anyway—the day he gets out.

Jason Schwartzman

Even when he was an awkward kid playing an even more awkward kid in Rushmore, you could tell Jason Schwartzman had style. Behold, a decade or so later he’s an ace at looking cool in a suit.

Ed Ruscha (and son, Eddie)

At the age of 71, Ruscha brings to his style the same attitude and humor that imbues his artwork. Exception: He may have created those iconic “word paintings,” but he says he “never liked T-shirts with sayings on ’em.”

Rules of Style and Fashion

Tom Ford's fame came from his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house. Now the creator of the Tom Ford label has some tips for the trendy as seen in the December issue of DETAILS Magazine.

1. I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a fairly classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs. Classic simplicity always works.

2. Someone who is secure enough to be very present when relating to another person is sexy. In other words, a good listener always lands who he wants.

3. When mixing patterns, don’t think about it too much—just throw it together.

4. I hate the trend of short suit jackets. When a man’s butt is showing below the bottom of his jacket, I think it makes him look like a female flight attendant from the back—not my idea of sexy.

5. With jewelry, I actually like bracelets more than anything else, but they have to be small and simple. Cary Grant always wore a simple gold bracelet with his watch, and I think that was very chic.

6. If you’re careful not to overuse Botox, then yes, why shouldn’t you use it? A little bit of it between the brows can make you look less stern and more approachable. Who needs to frown, anyway?

7. Just like girls need to learn to be comfortable in heels before they go out in them for the first time, a man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit—and sometimes even in a tuxedo—and so I’m really comfortable in one.

8. When it comes to grooming, keep earwax out of the ears and keep stray hairs and flakes of skin in check and you should be good to go. In the morning, I put ice cubes on my eyes and use lots of Visine.

9. Time and silence are the most luxurious things today.

This Day in History: Feb. 13, 1633

Galileo's passion was what lies beyond our grasp. He devoted his life to studying motion and astronomy. So wear you passion on your cuff with career and passion related cufflinks.

If math is your forte grab a pair of stylish sterling silver pi cufflinks. This irrational number makes Euclidean geometry make sense. For the math nut Ravi Ratan created these shiny Sterling Silver cufflinks that weigh 16.2 grams (.57 ounces) because 3.141592653 would have added grams that would make it too difficult to punch a calculator while wearing.
Or maybe music is your muse. This simple, yet refined pair, is a great way to express your passion. No matter your genre preference every sound comes from a note. Show your appreciation by adorning a pair on your cuff!
