“These cufflinks feature a beautiful little 20mm long sculpture of the Type 35 which, being in the art metal’s essence of form house style, displays no more fine detail to readily demonstrate the beautiful aerodynamic lines of the 1924 Bugatti Type 35. The miniature sculptures are cast in EX-T35 bronze and patinated to take on the dark brown color associated with true art bronzes. The sculpture is then mounted upon a stylized T-35 radiator shaped back plate, the latter plus cufflink arm being cast in solid EX-T35 solid aluminum. A limited edition of 350 cufflinks. Each piece is engraved with its limited edition number and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.”

Perhaps I'm the only one who thinks those are very cool?
So "EX-T35 bronze" is not really bronze? Is bronze so rare they needed something else? Is "patinated" really a word? And why specify 350 cufflinks, instead of 175 pairs? Are there that many one-armed men that might only order 1? In related news, the latest Restoration Hardware catalog is about as chock full of useless, expensive crap as any catalog I've ever seen. These would fit right in.
Sounds cheap. Looks odd. I'll take a pair of Dunhills anyday (probably their headlamp models, available in a variety of lens colours). I already have a Dunhill wallet, so I have to coordinate, just like all completely heterosexual meat eating red blooded gun loving macho guys, yessir.
