    Tiger, I think you may be misunderstanding the term "cufflink porn". [​IMG]


    Eyemuffs!

    Just wait until I get the rest of the collection [​IMG] Actually, those are the ones I'm wearing today, too.

    Alan those and the other vintage ones you've posted are what got me into this in the first place. BTW, that blue check shirt still rocks.

    Thanks! A couple of years ago I had no worthwhile cufflinks, just a couple of cheap toggle pairs. Cuffthis inspired me, and I started hitting ebay. As you know, it takes some patience, but anybody can afford nice links.

    Here's a modern pair (also from ebay), Brooks Brothers snappers. I think you can still get them from Brooks:

    I got these off of ebay myself, they are from the 1950s. I usually like silver but these were a horse of a different color.

    I think they look a bit like early Georg Jensen. Lovely.

    Yes, art nouveau, art deco - whatever you want to call it. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    Anyone have any jet ones? They seem to have fallen out of fashion since the Victorian age.

    Here's a pair of vintage French cufflinks, enamel and silvertone mount. Contrary to recent rumours, the fleur de lys design does not signal Royalist leanings on my part.

    ^Those are 14k white gold front with a gold colored band, which I assume is base metal although I'm not sure.

    Here are some sterling links:
