Become a Gentlemanly Geek With These Cufflinks

Traditionally geek attire is characterized by jeans and a (themed) t-shirt, but even us geeks run into moments when we need to tidy up a bit and put on something a little bit more formal. Next time you have to break out a tuxedo where your E3 Portal t-shirt doesn't cut it, ditch the traditional black cuff links and go for something that little more geek-chic accessorizing your sleeves. It's Father's Day this weekend...just sayin'!


iCufflinks ($128): These sophisticated and modern styled cufflinks are completely open source. Not only do the iCufflinks look great, but there is a light behind the power symbol that pulsates at the same rate as the sleep light on a Mac - which not coincidentally is the same rate at which a human breathes while at rest. Also, if you happen to the type of person that likes to hack around, the open source nature of the project allows for you to make any modifications to fit your specifications.

Forever Young Cufflinks ($150): These appropriately named cufflinks bring a nice nostalgic feeling to everyone that sees them. While the Forever Young Cufflinks are not the only Lego themed cufflinks out there, they are certainly one of the nicest. There is no doubt that these cufflinks will get you tons of compliments and be a great conversation piece at your next formal engagement.

Command Cufflinks ($164): A must for any Mac fanboy out there, the Command Cufflinks are made from silver, and are some of the highest quality computer key cufflinks available. The distinctive apple command key is prominently displayed so everyone will instantly know where your computer allegiance lies.

Think Geek 2GB Silver USB Cufflinks ($99.00)
Dad more of an inner geek rather than someone who wants to wear it on his sleeve? Then these more subtle-sophisticated 2GB silver USB cufflinks should do the trick. He's Don Draper on the outside, Dilbert hidden on his wrist.
