Eastern Market! Wow. I'm going to have to venture over to the other side of town when I get home again.

FWIW, I always have a couple pairs of silk, French knot cuff links in my suitcase. (http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Knot-C...Fe99Ogod8VEADQ) I would be furious with myself were I to lose a pair of really nice cufflinks. The knots work just fine and it doesn't stress me out to replace them. The ones your sister gave you are also very cool and at $40 not so pricey that I'd kick myself if they were lost or damaged.

My favorite links are the double sided ones affixed to little chains. They flex a bit and don't cause the shirt to pull when I extend my arm. They are also easier (I find) to fasten as after putting one side in before I don the shirt, the other side slips through the buttonhole like, well, a button. LOL.

All the best.
I've got some Dunhill ones with the chain and love them, I also often only put them through the front and don't actually close the cuff. Any ideas on other brands that make them? Not the easiest thing to find.

Grew up in BMWs, am actually at my 5th own BMW, am a watch enthousiast since I got my first watch at the age of 6 (Flikflak haha). I think you can say I am an enthousiast of both.

Very nice cufflinks posted, I am not that much into cufflinks otherwise, suite and tie are working outfit for me, I am happy when I can wear a polo shirt and some shorts.

This Ebel 1911 BTR Chronograph was my first expensive watch





Also have a TAG Carrera Calibre 8 and Oris Big Crown Complication plus a few "nice" quartz watches in my collection. Drives the wife nuts.

She's just jealous and wants more baubles of her own. <winks> Just be sure to give her a piece of jewelry in between each of your watch purchases. If she's like my ex, she won't even notice your watches if she has something sparkly and new of her own.

All the best.
