I can’t lie here – I severely dislike having to wear cufflinks. Not because I don’t like the way they look or anything, but because I always lose those little fuckers and end up in some sort of panicked trip to the mall to replace them last minute.  Though I’ve vowed to get rid of all my French cuffed shirts it has yet to happen so, for now, cufflinks remain part of my wardrobe.

If you’re going to wear cuff links wear these

Times have changed and the days of operators sporting shorts, Tevas and a pair of Oakley’s 24/7 are long gone. With Personal Security Detachment (PSD) assignments, intelligence work and regular trips to embassies the modern day operator has evolved and so has his wardrobe.

So if you’re going to go the way of the French and use cufflinks you might as well make sure they are bad-ass.

Oh but to pick a lock?

Lock picking is an acquired skill that I think everyone should have. It’s just one of those things that everyone should have a functional knowledge of like changing the tire on your car.

Of course the easiest way to pick a lock is to have a key, like in the case of these handcuff key cuff links.
