Our satin-finish cuff links designed for wear with a wide variety of Men’s and Women’s Air Force uniforms feature the instantly recognizable Air Force symbol, a modernized version of the iconic “Hap Arnold star”—called "wing and star" in uniform regulations— that the United States Air Force designated as the service’s official, trademarked symbol in 2004.

While all Air Force uniform regulations always refer to it as the "AF symbol," the design is also known as the “eagle device” because of its resemblance to a spread-winged eagle. This was intended as part of the design process: A monograph titled “Meaning of the Air Force Symbol” often distributed at Wingman Day events states, “The symbol can take on two different forms depending on how you choose to see it: a medal of valor in service or our nation’s emblem of freedom, an eagle.”

Cuff links are mandatory when wearing the Men’s or Women’s Mess Dress uniform, and are optional for the Service Dress, Semi-Formal Dress, Blue Service, and all Maternity uniforms with long sleeves. However, the blouses worn with the Women’s Service Dress, Blue Service, and Maternity Blue Service uniforms need to modified at the Airman’s expense to accommodate the wear of cuff links.
