I maintain that all men should have at least one dress shirt with link cuffs, single for the minimalists and French for the snazzier. I also maintain that on said dress shirt you should wear cufflinks beyond simple metal or glass buttons, something with a sense of humor. Like, perhaps, this brand new line featuring all things Star Wars.… read more
I've long been a fan of business cards that are so unique that they become, essentially, impractical. The blogosphere is rife with interesting business cards, but this is the first time I've seen concrete business cards. Impractical? Maybe. But the awesomeness of these makes them total worth… read more
