‘Touch of Gold’

26 Feb

Discovered my ‘touch of gold’ for our special day – gold-plated cufflinks! Tear-drop shaped (no less!), for a very special occasion. Cufflinks suffer the same fate as the available ties in Singapore; they mostly do NOT look good.

Though the tailor mentioned that it does not matter that much as cufflinks are hidden when one is wearing a jacket, I am a proponent of quality within & without. Recent discoveries have irrevocably shifted my quality threshold for certain dress items; for instance, leather shoes.

Have always loved to learn about artisans and their obsessions with quality and craftsmanship. Of course, good design is an indispensable bedfellow!

Such items are rare for men in Singapore, and I am definitely enjoying the search!  <d>
