    I thought it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to showing different cuff/cufflink/watch/jewelry combinations. In my opinion, the topic is extremely neglected.

    I'm pro double cuffs with a odd jacket.

    In fact, that's how I'm going out tonight.

    Makes no difference to me but I thought it was a SF faux pas.

    Those Hobbs & Kent links look (even) better on a cuff than they do on display. Did you get them from Barneys?

    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.

    When you use your budget shirt option and visit Michel Korn at Arnys for bespoke shirts, you should pick up the Arnys lacquer cufflink box. It's quite cool. Yours truly, with bigtimer tastes on a smalltimer income, has one.

    I got away from cufflinks about a year ago. Since then, my life has extremely well balanced and happy.

    I don't know where they were bought; my wife gave them to me as a gift more than a year ago. Dude, you shouldn't have shown me the Ultiman site. It's not fair how cool that stuff looks and how much it costs.

    That is not the same thing. This thread is about dressing your cuffs as a whole, not just cufflinks.

    You probably weren't happy wearing the same ones over and over again. That's where we differ.

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

    But nice SC - I really like it.

    I like the shirt, I unlike most people do not have a problem wearing a french cuff shirt with a sport coat. I don't like the coat however, I think it is a bit loud and dose not go well as an overall look.
