@ Usama

Sir,

Please accept my apologies for posting my own pictures on your thread, but i thought i would share something with the group as well that is related to the subject.

below are tiger claw sherwani buttons and cuff links that are from a tiger hunted by my grand uncle in Assam. It is tradition in my family for the groom to wear these on his wedding.
