With the new season of Mad Men beginning this Sunday, I began thinking about an accessory that would suitably evoke the era of the show, something that would say classic American style.
What spoke to me was this pinstripe etched money clip from Trafalgar. Although I honestly don’t see the marked difference in design from what is generally referred to as the standard engine turned buckle pattern, I will leave it alone and not nitpick.
What this money clip has over any number of similar looking items, is a very useful hinge as well as a scratch-resistant rhodium-plate finish over the solid sterling silver base. Alternatively, this item is available in a 23K gold-plated finish and both options can be engraved for that added personal touch. Who says you can’t improve on a classic?
