I go for the racing mostly, there’s nothing quite like the fast cars, the fine yachts and the fabulous girls. Not to mention the thrill of the danger. The Circuit de Monaco runs along the streets of Monte Carlo and is renowned for being a true test of a driver’s skill.
If ever there was a time for wearing cufflinks, it is when one attends the after parties of the Grand Prix. I always find myself taking note of what everybody is wearing. Naturally, the women look gorgeous but it’s just as interesting to see what the men are wearing. Of course there’s the obvious black tie ensembles, but it’s the cufflinks that really tell you about a chap.
The real racing enthusiasts can be spotted a mile off, usually by their racing car cufflinks. The connoisseurs are often found enjoying a glass of the finest wine and a cigar, whilst the businessmen can be found wearing their exquisite gold cufflinks.
I usually opt for something a bit more eccentric, last year I went with my 18-carat white gold shark cufflinks, which caused a stir. Although thinking back, they might not have been the best choice of cufflinks to wear on a yacht…
