Link: When should you take your Christmas decorations down?

Welcome to 2017. I hope we all have a great year.

I always dread all through the Christmas season how barren the house will look at first when the decorations come down in January. But, of course, down they must come; this article has a lot of fascinating information about the history of when various cultures around the world take down their decorations. 


See my January 2015 article on post-Christmas winter decorating.

Missing Blogroll Links

I don't know why the list of links to my favorite style blogs has disappeared, but apparently Google is aware of the problem and is working on it; hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

Re-Launch of A Suitable Wardrobe

Kirby Allison of The Hanger Project acquired A Suitable Wardrobe from Will Boehlke last year. ASW, which ran from Dec. 2006 to Nov. 2014 if I recall correctly, was probably the best and most thorough (and I believe also first) men's clothing blog. It was taken offline about a year ago. 

The blog is finally being re-launched; the archives through April 2008 are available now, and the entire archive -- almost 1,800 posts -- will apparently be available soon. 

The new site's layout is a jumbled mess compared to the old Blogger format, but I'm just glad to have it back.

Happy Holidays

Here's to you and yours having a beautiful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Solstice, Voodoo Man Day, or whatever you celebrate this time of year.

I'll be spending this Christmas Eve at home with the Anthony Cumia Christmas Show and the Bryan & Vinny Christmas Show.

But here is my outfit for Christmas with my family tomorrow:
  • Gray flannel Southwick chalk-striped suit   
  • New navy Chaps tie with Christmas dogs motif (I'm hoping to pick up the green one too on after-Christmas clearance)
  • Light blue Stafford shirt with white collar and white French cuffs, linked with red and green silk knots 
  • Red cotton ribbed over-the-calf socks from Viccel 
  • Brown suede Allen-Edmonds brogues
  • Dark green Brooks Brothers Tyrolean hat
  • Tan Glen Eagles trench coat 
  • Red plaid faux cashmere scarf
