I was looking to spend a small amount in my paypal account & came across a couple of sellers on ebay with $2-$5 shipped cufflinks. I bought 5 pair from this seller. Some examples:
This seller has lower prices but some of the backs look suspect, but they do have something for the pirate clan:

Have you received them yet? How are they?
How are they different from cufflinks which cost $300-400 retail??

I am woefully underwhelmed by these meager offerings... Talbott, or nothing.

I don't have any silk knots, but I was considering it. Why aren't they fash? Is it because they look like candy?

I am not a member of the anti-silk-not jihad, FWIW.

i'm wearing a silk knot right now. i'd much rather use a silk knot rather than some tacky cereal box cufflink. however, you did choose the best of the bunch, and most people don't know the difference between rt and what you've got up there.

I asked this already, but no response...although I suspect the difference between a $1 cufflink and a $300 cufflink will be too subtle for anyone to recognize. Unless I am wrong?
How about anyone else who ordered from here?
