Just beautiful. I think I'll be placing an order ..... once my month-long buying ban ends.

Louder than smoked pearl maybe but still classic and not garish, IMO.

Thanks for the mentions. I do think my plain MOP links are good for casual settings.

The first rule of cuff links is never wear singe-sided cuff links. The only real cuff links are double-sided cuff links. As almost all novelty cuff links are single-sided, the first rule obviates the need to mention them. I should add that novelty cuff links are akin to novelty ties. Not only are they distasteful, they are often poorly made.

Kent - funny that your avatar is the very pair i'm considering. Probably won't pull the trigger until morning, but i think i've gotten over the edge on that blue pair in addition to the smokey MOP. Great stuff you've got

I've been fantasizing about the guilloché set for months now. Don't know why I kept putting purchasing those off for so long. Thinking of kopping that blue/brown bi-color knit tie along with it too.

(Still hating Spoo for snapping that tie up from B&S for cheap)

I disagree though I respect what you are stating. I use both and prefer the single-sided ones because they are easier for me to get on/off. Ofcourse to each his own preference.

Don't wear French cuffs with jeans. Ever.

Silk knots Ok with jeans but the principle is very weak.
