Cufflinks are worn in the US as status markers, usually by ambitious middle class types who utilise them as a relatively cheap and easy way to attain a certain level of sartorial sophistication-- undeserved of course--a pose invariably divulged by the shoddy quality of their suits and shoes (RTW, usually). Expensive cufflinks can not compensate for shitty tailoring and poor taste in off-the-shelf shoes. Not all of us are fooled so easily. And some of us simply don't like cufflinks. LBF
I must put this one onto my reading list. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
