You may know him as the James Bond or the sultry husband of Rachel Weisz–and we know him as a fashion guru. Impressively masculine, charming, and stoic Daniel Craig embodies the image of style and male fashion. He doesn’t get caught up in silly trends, but sticks with the basics and always looks good while doing so.
Becoming a man of style here at Cufflinksman is no easy feat. Few men in modern media meet our standards, but Daniel Craig definitely has them. “Craig’s reserved demeanor and his avoidance of the showbiz-party-red-carpet milieu makes him a cool “007”. He is the first blonde actor to play Bond, and also the first to be born after the start of the film series, and also the first to be born after the death of author Ian Fleming in 1964.”(SOURCE: IMBD.COM)
Even ASKMEN.COM takes notice of his stylish demeanor: “Look at Bond’s black-tie digs during the Craig era proves that point perfectly. Casino Royale featured what at first glance appears to be a traditional tux but in reality packs the punch for which Bond is known. The button is solo, the lapels are peak and the fit, of course, is glove-like. The shirt and tie likewise have a subtle surprise in store: The placket is hidden and topped off with a bow that could almost be considered Pee-wee-esque if it weren’t worn with a Walther P99. Bond wore it undone, so the practicality inherent to its slimness cannot be stressed enough. After all, who wants to have a bulky bow flailing in the wind? The same can be said about protecting that pricey stud set with the covered placket. As for the shoes, well, if you paid close attention, you’d know they weren’t patent. That would almost be too predictable. Rather, they’re simply high-shine oxfords that are far more versatile — that is, if John Lobb lace-ups for two Gs can be considered simple.

Why were the 60s so grand? Surely it wasn’t the psychedelics, but rather the music that was produced during this imitable era. We have the Beatles, The Temptations, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, The Rolling Stones…and the list just keeps going on.
Here at Cufflinksman, we’d like to give you OUR top 5 songs of the decade for this upcoming Winter Season. How do they measure up to your standards?
1. Beach Boys “God Only Knows”
“This song fires twin darts at your heart from the beginning. A maudlin French horn heralds the start before those timeless words “I may not always love you” pin you to the wall. You’re at Brian Wilson’s mercy from then on as he tips out tumbling drums and sweet harmonies relentlessly for the next three minutes. Simon from Biffy Clyro has the lyrics tattooed across his chest and it’s Paul…” -from NME.com
2. Bob Dylan “Girl From the North Country”
“The song was written following his first trip to England in December, 1962, upon what he thought to be the completion of his second album. It is debated as to whom this song is a tribute to, some claim former girlfriend, Echo Helstrom, and some Bonnie Beecher, both of whom Dylan knew before leaving for New York.”–from Wiki
3. California Dreamin’ By The Mamas and the Papas
4. Velvet Underground “Chelsea Girls”
“The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City by Lou Reed and John Cale, who both went on to find success as solo artists.
Although experiencing little commercial success while together, the band is often cited by many critics as one of the most important and influential groups of the 1960s. In a 1982 interview Brian Eno made the often repeated statement that while the first Velvet Underground album may have sold only 30,000 copies in its early years, “everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band.”
Andy Warhol managed the Velvet Underground and it was the house band at his studio, the Factory, and his Exploding Plastic Inevitable events. The provocative lyrics of some of the band’s songs gave a nihilistic outlook to some of their music”
5. The Beatles “A Day in the Life”
1. Long lines
You know it’s love when…the line doesn’t just end at the “Enter here” sign–it extendes, or travels rather, past the entry sign, down the hall, through the Children’s department, passes a different register, and ends next to a drafty door with foreign tourists traipsing back and forth through the entryway. Love, right?
2. Heavy coats mixed with air conditioned, crowded rooms
Whilst one your way to the actual store, you’re bundled and cozy, warm and confident. Then you step into a department store sauna, and suddenly your forehead begins to perspire, your hands sweat, the silk blouse you’re wearing underneath saturates itself with your sweat, and then your great “Black Friday” hairdo gets dampened by the humid breath all around you.
3. Babies and bad mothers
You see a stroller with a baby. Two legs in one stroller hole, the child has a lump of dusty hair in one hand and a lollipop in another, whilst the wandering- sale- seeker- of- a negligent- mother combs through a clearance rack. The baby starts to cry. The mother doesn’t flinch and continues her combing.
4. Crappy music on the loud speakers
Because there’s only so many times you can hear jingle bells and not think of the lack of jingling dough in your wallet.
Red light. Blue light. Green light. Middle finger. Grandma in Cadillac up ahead. Stopped to fix the lens on her scratched glasses. Yellow Light. Red Light. Blue sirens. Stop. Go. Stop.
6. Sales tax
A $160 item ends up becoming $200 somehow. What’re you guys just making up the sales tax now?
7. Bad customer service
“Hi, can you tell me the price of this?”
“Um, doesn’t it say??”
Look through the item over, turning it every which direction to find the price.
“Oh, yeah no it doesn’t. Can you price check it for me?”
Eye roll. Fifteen minutes later.
“We can’t sell it now, because it doesn’t have a price tag.”
8. Gum chewing, eye rolling cashiers
Walk up to the register. No response to your human presence. Chatter with co-worker. Gum snapping.
“You have ______ credit card?”
“Oh, do you want one?”
“Do you want _____ discount card?”
“No, thanks. Just these.”
“Well, if you ______, and then _____, you get ______.”
“No, really thank you. Just this.”
Resume chatter with co-worker disrespectfully. No response once you get your receipt and actually walk away.
“Um, have a good day?”
