    Default Yes or No?



    I thought a thread like this would be useful to ask opinions on prospective purchases.



    I came across these cufflinks, and I love them, but there is no way to discern if they are a genuine Dries van Noten product. Now, I know the seller deals with a lot of genuine Dries, I've bought from them myself, but I still wonder as to their authenticity. Has anyone seen these anywhere and can confirm if it's a genuine Dries product?

    i probably wouldn't doubt that seller. although i'm not a fan of the cufflinks really. looks like a pebble (or a rolled up ball of tinfoil) and a ball of lint to me.



    if i wore french cuffs on somewhat of a regular basis i'd buy the shaun leane horn cufflinks.. those are crazy.

    And crazy expensive! I think these would look great on a black shirt. Two balls of lint, that's true, lol. I like the texture of the "silver" part, too.

    do band collars look stupid when you just wear them without a bowtie?

    Looks too much like a toned down version of those hideous guatemalan bags proto-hippies wear + they keys made it into a gimmick.

    Faust, I love those cufflinks--have been eyeing them myself, for the BF. The textures are lovely.



    I do trust that seller completely, but her shipping charges make me reluctant...

    Thanks!
    So, I showed them to my wife, and she bought them for me.
    Sweet! Yea, shipping charges are usually high (although there was
    a $10 option to the US), but I've negotiated with them before for free
    shipping with buy it now.



    Coldrice, I think if you dye the bag black so the keys don't stand out, it could work.

    I was thinking about getting this shirt too. I am having a white shirt fever lately....I would wear it without a bowtie though.

    i like the bluish-grey better. the contrast on the black/grey/white is a bit loud for my tastes... but i'm not sure how you dress, so go with your instinct.

    Default Re: Yes or No?

    I like the loud one -- it's quite traditionally structured and I think the high contrast gives a bit more edge

    The black would look better with your hair.

    wow, thanks guys! so nice to get responses.



    I agree the black would be better with my hair, but I also agree with xcoldricex that the black is a bit loud. hmmmm.....i think it will stay in my dreambox for the time being.



    anyone have suggestions for a short, dark, jacket? i definitely want something structured, but not necessarily traditional.

    Rick the-king-of-the-cropped-rock'n'roll-jacket Owens. They are very expensive, but one is de-rigeur!!! There is a trusty Ebay seller called Countesse that always has some. But, if you have access, I would certainly try his clothes on before ordering, as the sizing can be very small.



    And of course, my dear Ann does cropped jackets all the time. I also saw a gorgeous assymetrical one by CDG CDG in Dover street market. My friend tried it on, it looked amazing on her.



    BTW, are you located in New York perchance? Century21 has some of those Chalayan jackets, and it's usually much cheaper there...
