I've been looking at cufflinks for a while now, and I must say its very difficult to find high quality hand crafted cufflinks these days.

I'm not a big fan of swivel backs, and least of all the cheap mass produced stuff from the Far East, so when I saw that Diva

makes his cufflinks mostly in a fixed style I was pleasantly surprised ....and moved to buy these that you see.

 

 

 

 

This is MOST kind of you Osqua...and..

 

It just might be an opportune time to re-iterate my open INVITATION  (and plea) TO ALL:

 

Now that my site/signature is enabled  - PLEASE look at my site  - and cufflink designs - and give me what feedback you can!  Any - and all - feedback is most valued.  Remember, my cufflinks are more of the refined classic style  - designed to be timeless and to effortlessly complement quality attire within sophisticated - probably mainly conservative/business -  environs.

 

Now I know this a bit outside the envelope of much of the  - more casual - attire often discussed here....but..

 I'm developing new designs as we speak -  open to suggestions  - and entirely happy to develop a few designs a bit more out there!

 

So:  Go Go Go

 

best to all

Davo

The ones I linked and are wearing are linen. I wouldn't buy any of their house branded suiting products though as they are pretty much all wool/poly.

Hey Prof, how wide are the hems on those? Like the look.

I avoid their in house branded products. I am a w28 . Near impossible to find pants on my size. Few places I can find but over $150. But I bit out of my budget . So I bought few pants from asos and few from topman.

Lovely 'Bourges' , where did you get them (exact link much appreciated) but just names of the model are fine :)

Like the 3rd from the right!

 

Thanks

Looks like a combo of Alden and Florshiem shell, with a couple of grain calf thrown in.

I bought a Ralph Lauren Classic fit from the Ralph Lauren store in Sydney QVB

E75B887B-1F23-4ECF-B803-D95849F3FAE5-1265-00000103BCC9CE65.jpg

I just noticed I says "Blue Label" on the tag if my RL custom fit polo.

I thought Blue Label was for women, no? Is this a mistake on the sticker?

62E244B7-924C-44E1-9447-B12E27D15CBD-2534-000002024F634563.jpg

I also realized the sticker says "PRL Classics", but as you can clearly see its a custom fit, not a classic fit. Why is that?

21FF0FED-52F0-4FE7-9B8C-4F3133615DC7-2549-000002038CA1CA0E.jpg

It still says "Classi" on the original rag after I removed the sticker. Why does it say classic if its a custom fit?

C9219EBA-59AE-4AB8-BA57-E13F3E28D32C-2618-000002112D10A51D.jpg


I made a thread about it and everyone days it's fake because it has orange inside the neck line and on the bottom where the cuts are.

WTF I'm so confused why would Ralph Lauren in QVB sell fakes

Please help me as this has really ruined my day

^^ The buttons and Made in Sri Lanka label looks pretty real to me.
Wouldnt worry about the 'blue label' sticker since Australian labels may have slightly different wording and PRL can be called blue label anyway.

$100 for that polo is kind of steep though tbh. Outlets tend to polosm for about $50.

Still not a fan of the quality though as their ribbed collars are notoriously easy to curl up.

Just got my chinos today and damn when they say slim fit theyre reaaally slim fit. I can feel the pants wrap around my calf and I'm known to have chicken legs. Next time I think I'll get the straight fit stuff.
I wouldn't go with their polyblend suiting either, but for other casuals there can be some bargains to be had.

The real bargains however are the ASOS collab items, or the reputable branded items on clearance.

How can I prevent the collar from curling?

Ryback it's not a fake. I managed the polo store in the QVB for a while around 8 years ago and I can tell you there is no fake goods being sold in PRL store in Australia. Like Lacoste there are different labels and names for things depending on the region being sold in.
