If not, you could buy regular cufflinks (good quality at lower prices) and have a jeweler convert them into chained links. Just make sure one of the ends fits through your cuff holes. It's gold so it shouldn't bee too difficult for a jeweler to do.
I think you are talking about the skull and crossbone broguing correct? If that's the case, you are thinking of Barker Black. It's their higher end line.
interested. Could you post measurements and if possible pics?

It's located on the third floor above Helios. He used to have a shop on the main road but moved up there for bigger space. His name is Mr. Bae and he and his son speak a fair bit of English.

(Itaewon exit 2?) walk past the Hard Rock Cafe store and keep going until you pass the light. As for Sfers in Korea? Never met any.

I see what you mean. I've used London Tailors in Itaewon many times for inexpensive suits and have brought most of my co-workers there for their suits. I had a Hugo Boss that was one and a half size too big for a friend. They took it and re fashioned it for him. Work was excellent. I guess if you give them a lot of business, they will do this type of work.

Can anyone identify what type leather it is and suggest care instructions? Thank You...
