ThePortForum cufflinks and lapel pins

Post by jdaw1 » 21:02 Sat 13 Sep 2008

Now available, :tpf: cufflinks and lapel pins, costing £20 or $40 for one pair cufflinks + one pin.
Image

I know about some orders: Luc (already mailed); g-man, jfacciol, EricD (those three taking delivery this evening); and for later delivery in the UK, AHB, benread and DRT (perhaps more than one set).

Anybody else?

When enough sets have been sold such that costs have been recovered, subsequent sales will go towards subsidising port at :tpf: tastings I attend. A noble cause, I’m sure you agree.

How did you manage to wear cufflinks with your trusty TPF F-Plan t-shirt?

Easy. Don F-plan T-shirt. Remove F-plan T-shirt. Don double-cuffed real shirt. Don cufflinks. Done.

It is surreal to see TBird peering out of the corner of a TPF offline picture.
Port is basically a red drink

My costs have now been recovered. Further sales, whether by me or by the holder of the UK-located inventory, DRT, will be used to subsidise food or port or corkage at subsequent tastings—wheresoever they might be held.

A gentleman might well wear cufflinks when drinking port. But a gentleman might wear a T-shirt when planting trees, or, ideally, when speaking to his forester. And this being an association of like-minded port-drinking gentlefolk, cufflinks seem more appropriate, even for the ladies.

I have never heard of Picassa but if you email the picture to me I will post it here. Or you could upload it as an attachment to your post using the "Upload attachment" function below the box that you type a reply into.

Scale the big picture before uploading. And, if wanted, add a zoom-in (or at least unscaled and cropped) picture of the cufflink.

Ah, I was wondering the reason why an "action shot" was being taken!

Whereas I’m more puzzled by the unpublished placemat.

I think that may have been because the official 20xi placemats were more DRT than even DRT could cope with! ;-)
