Emergency cuff links

About ten years ago I started to cultivate a less-affordable-than-I’d-like fetish for suits and ties. It’s awfully weird for a guy who works in a home office, but there you go; you can never have too many pointless affectations, I always say.

Anyway, this is why I was tickled to discover the Emergency Cufflinks created by Touch of Ginger. They’re constructed of a credit-card sized, thin piece of stainless steel. Just punch ‘em out, fold the ends, and voila: Instant pseud cred!

(Thanks to Sensory Impact for this one!)
