These cleverly conceived Deakin & Francis cuff links (www.deakinandfrancis.co.uk) are designed to appeal to sportsmen of all stripes. Made of enamel and sterling silver and priced at $525, they can add an element of whimsy to otherwise conservative attire. For men whose passions lie in other arenas, Henry and James Deakin—the seventh-generation owners of this British brand that has been in business since 1786—offer more than 2,000 styles covering nearly every interest, from animals and bugs to food and drink.
