Can't believe there's no thread on cufflinks?

Anyway, there I was sorting out the further reaches of my wardrobe and I came across a Laco watch box...

Those are all from the mid-2000's and I completely forgot I had them. Was rather chuffed.

And Etro, what are they doing now? I've only come across them in airports for the last several years. The flower one is Duchamp. I bought three similar pairs at the same time and I knew one was missing and I thought maybe I binned it as the enamel had chipped and one of the flower petals was missing.

I've had several pairs commissioned by Deakins & Francis. These are my Motorhead Warpig set. I actually have matching dinner shirt studs with this set, and tie tack.

Benson & Clegg had hand painted enamel cufflinks of the Fab Four awhile back, they were around GBP 495.

I am always losing my cuff links. I prefer silk knot metal cufflinks, as if I lose one they can always match with another orphan.

They are in the accessory thread.

I have a pile of knots in my drawer. For whatever reason I just don't wear them anymore. I would guess it's since I only wear french cuffs in the evening for various events, and I tend to not associate that as much with the knots.

I have silk knots, but my cufflinks are silk knots....

A few other items, some Turnbull cufflinks and some D&F black oxidized ravens skull ones as well. A set of spinel encrusted skull studs with moving jaws and ruby eyes, from Deakin & Francis as well. Oddball silk knots.

I'm apparently missing a set of cufflinks too. I have some MoP ones from Henry Poole and I have no idea where they are.

Purposely wore cufflinks yesterday, those dull blue chequered ones from Gieves & Hawkes with a T&A blue similarly themed shirt.

You have the problem of the tippity-tapping on your computer keyboard with cufflinks. You need to push the keyboard to the edge of the desk.

Those raven skull ones are cool.

I had a quite conspicuous collection of cufflinks in sterling silver from Tateossian, but I sold almost all of them: it was a pain to constantly remove the tarnishing.

At the moment I just have one or two shirts with double cuffs, and don't plan to buy more, so I don't need any cufflinks.

If I would, I would wear something like these:
