Don, if you're reading this, do NOT click.

I might have mentioned that my sweetie has become quite the natty dresser. In his journey to become so, he's found an appreciation for French cuffed shirts. Alas, he only has one old pair of cuff links. Naturally, I wanted to get him a set that would be stylish and simple but appealed to his creaitve and - let's face it - geeky side.

My first thought was the Legion of Superheroes. Don's a huge fan (I still have a bit of a time remembering who everyone is, what they can do and where they hell they're from) and the flight ring is a simple design that looks cool even if you don't know the origin.

Problem is, I could not find them in cufflink form.

There are other superhero cufflinks out there, and I'll probably pick up a pair of GL or Flash or Superman logos for Don in the future, but for Christmas I wanted something special. I fretted. I stewed. I groused. Then I found these.

Needless to say, my cufflink shopping is now complete.

They really are. I think next year I'll get him the TARDIS cufflinks. And your icon is beyond awesome.

Now I just need to figure out if any of the nerds I know ever wear cufflinks... sadly I think the answer is "no". Boooooo!

Man, I kinda feel the need to start wearing French cuffs just so I can buy those. Win, Kel.

In our quest for Star Trek cufflinks, which Cody proudly wore at our wedding, we discovered: http://www.cufflinks.com/

They have everything. EVERYTHING.

Everything except Legion of Superheroes cufflinks. *grumps*

It is a great site, though; I checked them out in my initial search and there will be purchases in the future!

Remind me to show you the GL cufflinks Julia got me for my Birthday. There's a guy on Etsy (I'll have to find his name) that will make things to order. He does Flash as well.
Julia go tme the GL cufflinks and a Darth Vader money clip!

Also a beautiful set of Alabaster Horse cufflinks as well.

I'll see if I can find the guys link for you.

I've seen the cufflinks, Jared. They're awesome. They also came up as I was fruitlessly searching for the Legion set.

I'd LOVE it if you could find the Etsy guy for me!
