Cufflink eye candy

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Some enamels, some snaps, some figurals, a pair of spool cufflinks, some advertising. All vintage. Which pair is your favorite?

Either the yellow/blue or the red/blue would look great with a navy suit.

The guiness ones for sure.

I'll second the choice of the guiness ones

Not sure why, but I am digging the hot air balloons.

Nice . The blue/yellow ones would go nicely with one of T&As, the runner up is the blue t-bar ones. There are bound to be some that actually look better in real life than in the photo. Nice hobby you've got . Bjorn

Great links. I'd love to see other folks post theirs. Here's my entire collection, assembled over the past couple of months. The Tiffany links were a gift from my wife, the others are ebay purchases. The silver knots are Joseph Bank, the second barbell set are Brooks Brothers (with box, not pictured). The others are vintage.

I'm torn between the Pink Octogons and the Blue and Red Ovals. Where did you find such pieces?

Some Ebay, some antique shows/flea markets, some come to me via a network of pickers I have that send me things on approval. I buy about 10 pairs a month to add to my collection (hope my wife doesn't read this

Allow me to third the choice for the Guinness ones.

I like the Guinness, but they are a bit more gimmicky than what I'd care to wear. The two that I think are most unusual are: LC5 (golden and brown spiky shape) and RC3 (light blue enamel cross pattern). I also like the greyhounds with a light blue background (L2) and the simple pink octagons (R5). The blue and red (R3) and the blue and yellow (R2) are also very nice and quite wearable. Great collection. Let me know if you have any that you would like to deaccession..

My favorite ones are next to the Guinness pair, sort of an Art Deco light blue/white accents. How do you proceed to make a decision in the morning?

I have close to 2,100 pairs. Of those, many are in permanent display cases around my house and the precious metals and gem ones are kept offsite in a secure location. That leaves "only" 300-400 pairs to choose from. I pick mainly based on color of the shirt and tie I am wearing. A lot of times I wear the least expected one, such as the nut and bolt pair. I love the contrast between a bespoke DB chalk stripe suit, spread collar, perfectly placed dimple in my tie, linen pocket square, and a fun pair of cufflinks. To me, it shows you have a sense of humor. It also, IMHO, shows that you know the rules well enough to know how to subtly break them.

I think you may have been tricked...
