    You took the time to specify that EVERYTHING on your enormous list is a "must-have."

    Then you admit you don't have any cufflinks, even though they are just about the only thing on your list that is, in fact, a "must-have" item.

    You ask "what's wrong" with a couple of items when someone points out that they are not "must-have" accessories by any stretch.

    Then you call someone else moronic because your own list included a bunch of things "None of which are must" (sic).

    Are you trolling or completely illiterate?

    I got my first Rubinacci pocket square recently, which is gorgeous. Now I'm on the hunt for the yellow Drake's unicorn wool-silk square. I STB when it was in stock at Malford and didn't buy it, and now can't find it anywhere.

    Sooo you are illiterate as well, or take things out of context...."None of which are must in order to be well dressed." - is what I said, because frankly many of the items on the list aren't needed to dress well.

    JayJay only mentioned the tie bar and collar pin, both of which in my opinion are more important than a flask, notebook, or fountain pen. His comment didn't make sense to me since he specified those two items and not the pen/flask/notebook....

    Nothing wrong with not owning something you consider a must-have...just something to work towards owning

    All I listed were items I considered a must-have, Jay Jay disagreed, i found it moronic that he mentioned tie bar and collar pin, before he mentioned the rest...

    In any case, nothing wrong with either, they are both nice accessories that fit a certain style - if for some reason you don't think so, then "that's just like your opinion, man" - but maybe you've never seen them executed in good taste..

    My father told me that a gentlemen must always have on his person a pocket knife, a pistol and a clean handkerchief; everything else would follow.

    My must haves are PS, cuff links, tie clip, money clip/cc and biz card holder and a wedding band which is the one thing I'm NEVER without.
