There's no doubt that classic cufflinks like these last and last.  Always understated, classy - and can subtly suggest pedigree - particularly with ones monogram/Initials engraved!   Now I would say that, wouldn't I?                        Kent Wang put up some good info.     There's an article on my thread which may help anyone buying substantial cufflinks:       ' Cufflink types explained...
  Y’know strumpy sometimes I think Heston is – just a little – taking the p*ss.   He’s a wonderful character, an historian as much as chef. ..rigorous ….perhaps a little OC (but then its television – anything to entertain – and his ‘guests’ love the publicity)   And its certainly not as banal as most tv.   Maybe the egg one was (also) a bit of a yoke….          (Oh dear)   davo
Thanks heaps Ernesto (The)   Now fixed.    I'm an analog man in a digital world!   Will I ever catch up......do I want to!   (a distant ancestor was gaoled in Wales because he was a militant Luddite ie sentenced for' machine breaking' - true!   I put some flowers on his grave!)   Best Davo
  Yeah...Romp knows his stuff: the large - APS size sensor - is crucial for high quality and 'noise' reduction.  I have the most challenging issues with (semi macro) photography of highly polished cufflinks. Not easy!  (I have to use a light box with slr etc)  Many don't realise that a big mega pixel count on a fingernail size sensor becomes meaningless - as do the  v long to v short lens specs (ie extreme variable focal length)...with their attendant distortion and low...
I think this is right....here  are quotes from  professional stylists ( on my website - articles 'sartorial advice') :    ‘For a man in a suit, they’re a way of expressing a bit of personality.    They’re noticed, but not too much.   The beauty of wearing cufflinks is that they are a way of wearing jewellery without ostentation – to merely hint at wealth and taste and qualities’  ...
Hello aad   Wishing you  the Very Best for the big day!    Cheers Davo
Yeah I had one of these too, also with the 16k pack. Do you remember the funny little printer - dot matrix on heat sensitive silver coloured paper!   The most interesting thing I remember related to this was that the famous inventor/designer behind it (sir clive sinclair) reckoned he did much of his work/got his best ideas in bed!  Winnie Churchill the same!   Both important enough to have secretaries on tap to dictate to.  Now however, this most civilised way to work -...
Whats the worry Dreamer?    May be I can help?  You never know!   Best Davo
      A GREAT history and article generally....  erudite - as usual - fxh!     (that Glenlivet S pretty good muse eh!....me? has to be brandy/cognac ...despite the olde ancestors  from the western isles.... scotch=headache, alas...then heartache)   fx old sport....would there be any copyright probs ...with me quoting some of this on my site?   I must be one of the few designers pretty much specialising in cufflinks....making a bit of a thing too with...
  Onya Romp....you' got it!                (and moon tan just means u hav healthy IQ!)   Truly truly life is TOO short to be a people pleaser - as against healthy  SELF EXPRESSION.    (and as a teacher I know just how precious CREATIVITY is!)   If this means being in the van with a bit of  STYLE EXTROVERSION - well that just makes the world a better place!  ..... regardless of the chicken hearted naysayers!    (usually just projecting anyways)   We really have to champion...
