    Were they a gift? Do you wear them?? Do you look forward to wearing them??? (Styleforum Inquisition)

    A couple of years ago my wife bought a pair for my kid and got a pair for me too...I just wear them when I am going to the beach near my house or going with my kid for a bike ride. They are comfy and easy for just kicking around the neighborhood.

    But don't get me wrong...I do realize they are ugly as sin and I am now only one step away from jeans with an elastic waistband and a fanny pack. [​IMG]

    Sounds intriguing - I'm desperately seeking purist approval. Don't you need to get each side snug and secure in the button holes? I can't really see how that could ever be easier than toggle backs...

    Very easy - it literally takes all of 2 seconds. They're fairly cheap on ebay - I suggest you buy a pair and join the club:

    They're so damn ugly though. Is there anything there that Labelking wouldn't wear?

    Am I the only one who keeps their cufflinks in their shirts after wear? That'll take care of the whole inconvenience of double-sided links.

    Honestly, they look nice in an old fashioned way - I get compliments on mine all the time. I hate shiny new cufflinks in cutesy designs (all of which are...toggle-backed!).

    Why don't you buy just one pair for $10-$15, give it a whirl and see if you like it.

    Yes. Other people launder their shirts.

    After each use?

    Character is what you do when no one else is looking.

    People are looking. I tell them the same thing. Do not read this otherwise as an endorsement.

    No. I don't sweat much AT ALL. I honestly don't have a body odor nor do I leave ring around the collar. This is the damn truth. Regardless, I pretty sure I just offended everyone's sensibilities (if they cared).

    It's OK - you can speak freely here. This thread is open to you. You know that stinky sweaty shirts are "inferior" but you still prefer them. Noted. How do you feel about underwear? Keep it coming... we're all friends here.

    Except for two fat lesbians.

    Thanks for that - on several levels. [​IMG]
