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.
Interesting Places to Take Your Date
We’ve all been there–combing through old memories of restaurants, venues, and music spots, searching for just those that are appropriate places to take your new “friend.” It must be suave, thoughtful, classic–not an evening at Shake Shack and the local AMC.
How can you get creative amidst a city with every possibility fathomable? Expectations are high and economies are tight. Sometimes a little planning and brainstorming will do just the trick to woo the one you’re pining after:
Fight or flight. Indulging in a good bourbon or whiskey can be a hit or miss, depending on how aggressive you want to get (pun intended). Try taking your special friend to a Whiskey Bar for a Flight Sample. For under $100, you can indulge in a whiskey sampler that will ensure a few hours of intimate conversation and sultry evening glances.
The cool thing about it too, is even if the date doesn’t work out, you’ll still have high-end, select bourbons and whiskeys to add to your palate. “Have you ever tried…?” is a great conversation starters in the “real world,” including bartenders, new dates, and bourbon connoisseurs everywhere.

Not your everyday collection. Instead of taking your date to that over-saturated art gallery with hordes or tourists, try to switch it up a bit this fall season. Museums with rotating collections are best, because you always know that you are one of the limited few that will get to glimpse _____.
TIP: Try Museum of the City of New York. It features 19-20th century memorabilia. “Today the Museum’s collection contains approximately 750,000 objects, including prints, photographs, decorative arts, costumes, paintings, sculpture, toys, and theatrical memorabilia.”
Fall picnic at the park. Bring along the following essentials: two types of gourmet cheese–one hard/ one soft, maybe one with truffles, one without, etc, a bottle of French red wine, a loaf of ciabatta bread, one blanket, checkered red and white napkins, a pre-programmed iPod with classical music, a Robert Frost poetry book, and a canister of Apple Cider (optional flask of bourbon to accompany).
Pick your ensemble carefully–focusing on autumnal tones like deep red and navy, orange and green. Think wool sweaters, jewel-toned beanies or old fashioned driving hats, and don’t forget the suspenders.
TIP: Try a fragrant garden in the park somewhere, under an Oak or Willow tree. Finding random eucalyptus and pine trees always a plus. Bring binoculars for bird watching and a .PDF of any bird watchers book.
