Cufflinks - Have I Been Missing Out?

Wife wrote in the last day or so about how the Boy has been carrying around an old set of my dad's cufflinks. At his memorial tribute, we had his old jewelry box (for lack of a better word) set out, and near the end I opened it to see if there was anything inside. There were a few things - cufflinks, a fishing weight, some tie clips, some screws, lots of keys, and a few other misc. metal things. It smelled good - like a garage and tools.

Anyway, my sisters and I all took a few things we wanted, and then let the kids pick a few things, too. I explained cufflinks to them. Do all men have shirts that need cufflinks, or only if they rent a tux? It seems like cufflinks are a typical groomsmen gift, but is a wedding the only time a guy really needs cufflinks? There are amazing cufflinks out there, both for men and women. Makes me want to start a new collection! I'd need some dress shirts though. Well, hey, I'll be a fancy lawyer before too long, and then I'll need them. It's never too soon to start collecting!

Oooh I think a crisp white shirt with french cuffs and some silver cufflinks is the epitome of class!

Class...and a power thing. There is something really attractive and powerful feeling about a woman (or a man) in a crisp white shirt with cufflinks.

AGREED!

Agreed. Nothing says style and class like a shart, well tailored suit, a crisp white shirt, and a carefully selected pair of sterling silver cufflinks. There are soooo many verieties and styles out there to choose from too.
