What is even Loud Cufflinks?
The story of this shop is recounted thusly: in late 2010 and early 2011 I had some friends who started making cufflinks as a hobby. They got the idea to make a company and start selling them online. Unfortunately, the cufflinks they were making were very traditional, so prices were low and competition was high. They ended up going under. For one of their birthdays, I taught myself how to make cufflinks and gave him some ridiculous pairs, like little realistic lemons. He loved them and this gave me an idea: what if I only made weird, eccentric, specialty or novelty cufflinks? Pairs that no one else makes? Would they sell? Would people buy poop or octopus or creepy doll eye or Tanzania flag cufflinks?
TURNS OUT THEY TOTALLY DO.
I then started making pairs of cufflinks as a hobby and selling them on Etsy, initially to give me some extra money while going to college full time. By the time I graduated four years later, Loud Cufflinks had grown more than 16 times its sales of the first year. I didn't have to look for a job in the field I studied for, just got to make cufflinks full time.
