i wore the cufflinks to church and they looked goo
October 24, 2012
I was very satisfied with the cufflinks and I plan to purchase additional items.
silver and black stripe silk-wool tie
Nice, simple tie - but thinner than typical ties
March 17, 2013
A thinner tie - both in width at widest point and quality of fabric - than I prefer. However, the price was right. If you like that modern, thin tie look, this one is for you. I like the look, but will have to tie a fatter knot than my normal day-to-day knot to make this one appropriate in my workplace (bank.)
However, I will pay attention more closely next time - again, this is a little thinner of a tie than I usually get. So, when buying a tie, I recommend finding your favorite one, measuring the widest point, and comparing.

About Swarovski Swarovski, now a fifth-generation family-run business, was founded in 1895 by visionary inventor Daniel Swarovski. After completing a two-year apprenticeship at his father's glass cutting factory in northern Bohemia (now part of the Czech Republic), Daniel Swarovski I patented his design for a machine to aid in cutting of crystal in 1892. An interest in precision-cut lead crystal led him to found Swarovski in 1895 in Wattens, Tyrol, Austria in order to utilize the local hydroelectricity in his new factory.
From creating the iridescent aurora borealis crystals alongside French designer Christian Dior in 1956 to inventing the "crystal mesh" (a metallic fabric composed of tightly woven crystals) seen in designs by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Louis Vuitton in 1993, Swarovski continues to maintain the creativity and innovation it is known for and to flourish as a leader in cut crystal for fashion and home.
