Likewise, the kind you'd WANT to impress or from whom you'd want attention will probably be turned off by something so gaudy.
There is something fundamentally wrong with your reasoning: 1) You presume to know what he
wants, I'm guessing you're basing this on what you'd
want. 2) He really shouldn't be buying any money clip to impress anyone else but himself. He's the one who's going to shell out the cash for it and keep it tucked away in his pocket 99% of the time where only he'll know it's there from any other manufacturer, it's just a piece of $15 piece of silver folded in half, there's no good reason to pay $115 for it.

Really, the Tiffany one and Louis Vuitton one are just as bad as each other. Either way you're paying a huge premium for the name, the clip itself is nothing that special. Either way you're paying for something you can look at with pride and think to yourself "this makes me special." If you're really convinced you're all about the substance and not about the gimmicky marketing hype, you can buy the same thing as that Tiffany one on amazon.com for a third of the price. But right now it seems to be a contest between a bunch of girls and a bunch of SF'ers blowing hot air up your ass over what they personally like and therefore you should want.
