    Those Hobbs & Kent links look (even) better on a cuff than they do on display.
    Eh, I'm not a fan. Looks a fuddy-duddy to me. What's it made of?
    When I want to tantalize myself with overpriced cufflinks I will probably never be able to afford, I go to www.ultiman.fr . They also sell random vintage knicknacks that are truly awesome.
    Their self-made "99 exemplar" links are pretty boring but some of the vintage ones are cool. Still, their markup is ridiculous. At least 5x, which may or may not be standard in the jewelry industry.

    Vox- those pics trump most of your WAYWN pics. Nice shots.

    That watch looks awfully big on your wrist to my eyes.

    But nice SC - I really like it.


    The wedding ring also looks one size too big to my eye. I wonder if it's bespoke.

    Those were taken by professional photographers.

    Pretty fingers.

    Buffed, like their owner.

    vox, you should consider switching the plastic buttons on that grey suit for some nicer ones.

    Well, the effect is to make Foo's outfit seem a tad less fuddy-duddy and obsessive, which is good. They are mammoth ivory and silver.

    I agree Ultiman is on the Arnys scale of markups, which is too bad because some of their vintage stuff is drop-dead incredible gorgeous. I do feel bad looking at the Asprey silver humidor with jewelled pattern representing the Maginot line... [​IMG]

    I like Kent's pictures above all in this threak. It seems he alone is showing cuffs and links with style without pretension to the sort of idiotic lifestyle porn which has taken over this forum and which the MC sheep all too willingly encourage. The more I live, the more I feel that critical thinking and perspective are what is missing at all classes, ages and education levels. Mind you, I'm two espressos into my day.

    I think that you need a bit more expresso. I'm unsure how many are needed to stop sounding like an old lady, but my guess is more than two.

    Kent's shots are very nice indeed.

    Glad to know I touched a nerve. I thought you generally overlooked smalltimers like whnay. and myself. I need to backflush the machine first. And I need to eat something.

    I like it when you take time from hanging the laundry to scold the children.
