Links to the Past™

Welcome to Links of the Past™, a special project of Leviner Wood Custom Tailors and Shirtmakers. All of our links are vintage. So are some of the stories, some of which are true, some of which are better. You may click through to an even larger image to examine the cuff links more closely. Each set of links is priced individually, shipping and handling will be calculated at checkout.

 

“‘Morning guvnor, may I take your hat and brolly? Thank you, sah. I’ve set out coffee in the Gentleman’s lounge as usual. Shall I hold calls?”

Maybe they didn’t exist, the Glory Days of the Empire. It must have been a fiction, created before the advent of The Euro and the open boarders. Remind yourself of how things used to be with these vintage coin cufflinks. (Click to enlarge).
