The cufflinks themselves look great, and you certainly can't get that TF look for this price anywhere else!
The construction quality is excellent, like with all of Magnoli's cufflinks, and though I've never seen a pair in person, I'm pretty confident they're an exceptionally faithful and well-built reproduction of the genuine article. Like another reviewer has mentioned, however, it's unfortunate that the "stalk" of the cufflinks is round, rather than flat (like on the originals and with the rest of Indy's Dupont-patterned Bond cufflinks) - this means it's maddeningly easy for the cufflinks to rotate and spin around like a propeller when they're holding your cuff together.
With that said, I suspect this would be pretty easy to fix with a small metal file. The roundness is really the only thing that makes it such a pesky problem, but I'm positive that flattening would reduce or almost eliminate this annoying (at least for someone as persnickety as myself!) tendency of the cufflinks to revolve and never sit straight inside the buttonhole.
I haven't gotten around to doing this myself yet, but I see no reason that wouldn't resolve the issue. All in all, superbly handsome and quality cufflinks! Highly recommended despite the aforementioned spinning.
