Silk Knots

Does anyone know of any ebay sellars or other online sources of silk knots? I would like to pick-and-choose either individual pairs or perhaps 2 and 3 pairs at a time if I have to.

I know at one point someone posted an ebay seller who sold in such a manner, but I cannot seem to find them on ebay nor can I find the post.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I posted at one time about EBay seller "Pathol", who sold (and shorted) me on a few silk knots. Pathol went out of business amid a flurry of negative feedback. The links she did send were fine. I then later bought some Thomas Pink links from Ebay seller "Dynamoman"-goods were shipped quickly as promised. I happen to think that all these links are all the same, no matter who the retailer. I've bought silk knots from Jay Kos, J Press, "Pathol", Thomas Pink, and they all look the same to me. They're not really silk either (more like better looking rubber bands), which is good-they don't break like the "real" silk knots that Charvet sells. Edit: Prior discussion started August 10, 2004 and was entitled silk knot cufflinks.

TM Lewin have a 50% off all stock sale on at the moment, with a good selection of silk knots at a very reasonable £3 (down from a very overpriced £6)

T.M. Lewin is okay if you live in the UK or Europe. Not sure if you would want to pay the absolutely ridiculous 15GBP shipping fee for a couple of silk knot cufflinks.

You might try Neiman Marcus. The price isn't the best, and you don't get to choose exactly what you want, but the selection of colors in their sets is more interesting that what's at BB.

Are silk knots really all the same? I just buy mine on e-bay. They get shipped from hong kong, but the knots that I wear the most (red pair and navy pair) always come apart. not in the middle, but one of the knots starts to come untied.

Maybe they aren't. My own navy/red links don't have this problem.

Fair point that.

Wow, I never even noticed that Jantzen sells links.

Were I placing an order today I would likely include the links, but I think I will look elsewhere for now. The Quality/Price ratio is worth the wait for shirts.....I would rather just pay $4 in the US for knots if I know I will receive them this week.
