    1. 2 pairs
    2. $50 (both $75 retail, but got one for $25) Both from Brooks Brothers
    3. Stored in jewelry box when at home, box they came in when traveling.
    4. Not bad, but I don't see much need to display cufflinks, unless you are extremely proud of your collection.

    Proud is not the right word as I have done nothing to have my collection, just paid.

    I like to look at them and it is practical to see them all instead of opening X box to find the pair you want to find.

    I have 7 pairs of Dunhill with the same box...

    You're right, going through several boxes would be a major pain in the ass.

    Didn't mean for my remark about the collection to sound derogatory; just realized it may have.

    Have a good one.

    Thanks for your help. I do not like any of these boxes as : - they can not store enough cufflinks (I have already 15 pairs) - they have no system to immobilize each cufflinks of a pair so they will damage each other when you move the box - when such a system exist, it is an elastic that is not practical to use (I have this in my boxes) - there is no way to see the links without opening the box (so the closing system will be tired more quickly) All these boxes confirm me that my box is a good choice and that this is not easy to find a good box.

    I have probably 25 pair (haven't counted recently). Some were my father's, some from antique stores, some I purchased. Typical purchase price would be $20-50. I store them loose in a jewelry box--it IS a pain to locate the mates, but I haven't taken the time to organize them properly. Perhaps someday. [​IMG]

    So they touch one the others and get scratched? Please stop this. This is unbearable to hear.

    2. Average price $$50 US, with prices ranging from $.25US to $1,250US per pair.

    3. Most of mine are stored in display cases provided by Claude Jeanloz, the propietor of the Cuff Link Museum in N. Conway, NH.

    4. Nice box, but I will post pictures of mine, which I hope you like

    1) Haven't counted, but it must be over 100 pairs. 2) Ranges from $35 to $1800. 3) In various cufflink boxes -- most of them leather, but one or two in wood. 4) The box you're thinking about is actually quite nice; I recently purchased it's "double-decker" brother and I'm quite happy with it. Use this one to display my "nicer" links... :*) Cheers, JV

    4) On the same website? if yes, did it come with delay? I ordered this box 10 days ago and nothing for the moment and impossible to track it. I did not take the double as I do not have enough links and because it looks not very practical on picture as links down seem to touch the upp of the box when you close or open it. Is it the case? How is the leather and construction? First quality?

    Yeah... got it at the same place. Reliable folks, so don't worry; it should get to you soon (if they're out of stock, usually they tell you; have they sent you an email stating that the item has shipped?)... I was pleasantly surprised by this piece -- certainly very good quality, and smaller than I thought it would be (didn't really pay attention to the dimensions... just went by the pictures). Have experienced no real problems with the box; sure, on top, some of my cuff links are too "tall" for the case, and the glass top will not close properly unless I lay them on their sides or place them at an angle. Down below, it's the same design, so no real problems to get the case to open and close properly. If you've got a lot of links, the double-decker is a smart option; otherwise, the single-version is just fine. Cheers, JV

    i'll break my collection into two parts - i own about 8-10 pair of cufflinks; most from T&Co. with a few passed down from my father. and i also have close to 30 pair of french knots in varying colors and color combinations. i keep most of my links in the bags they came in, as most are silver and i do not like them getting tarnished. as for price my cufflinks run from 100-200 on average. and if they are not in the bag they came in, chances are i left them on the last shirt i wore with them, and this happens far more often than i'd like to admit.
