Between Crumbs closing and the oppressive heat (and all the colorful odors that come with it), New York City is kind of an awkward place to be right now. And in this crazy heat, I feel particularly bad for the guys who have to wear long sleeves. Add a blazer and subway commute to the mix, and you’ve got a perfect recipe for fainting! If you must layer up like this, though, at least you can do so with some flair. Consider these five new cool pairs of cufflinks to offer some fashionable relief, and Godspeed in finding those air-conditioned subway cars.
