Polo store in Chevy Chase. You pretty much have to pay retail.
They had them at the Polo in Tyson's Corner as well.

Ah. I might have to break down and pay full price then. I've wanted those links for months!

Why? Don't puffy pirate shirts have button cuffs?

Sorry but I really don't get the attraction to skull and crossbones. I find the image morbid and ugly. Also, by the time you get these next year, they will look so 2006.

I'm with EL72. But if you insist, you might try Disneyland. When I took my daughter and niece there a few months back, there was pretty much nothing couldn't buy with that logo on it.

Wrong here. Skull and crossbones are a classic English motif. Hence the inclusion of the theme into RLPL ties and cufflinks.

Also, I think most cuff links are gaudy. I'm not into shiny jewelry and like the black enamel of the aforementioned cufflinks.

Alright...I was asking if anyone knew where I could find these. I could care less if any of you like them or not. If I did, the post would have been made in the 'Men's Clothing' forum and would have been titled, &quot;What do you think of these cufflinks&quot;!!

That post got to my inbox before the edit


Where do you like to buy Duchamp cufflinks? I googled them and a ton of links came up...just wondering if you have a place you could recommend.

I've bought some on eBay. www.tiedeals.com had some too (he also has eBay auctions i think). Full retail is $150+ but I have seen them on sale in some stores for as low as $50. I really like some of their designs. Some are a bit too colourful but I have a pair that look a lot like these

They may be classic, but they're also highly fashionable right now, so most people who see them in 2007 will think "those are so 2006". But if you put them away until 2009 you're right: you'll be fine.
Disclaimer: I just got some skull&crossbone laces for my sneakers - $2.
