With so few essential accessories, it makes sense to indulge a little in flawless craftsmanship and the pleasing heft of fine, rare materials. It also makes sense to have a few pairs of cufflinks to choose from, since our day-to-day choice may be suited to a particular occasion or simply dictated by mood or whim.
