Well, here we are at Christmas 2010 and I've never been so sartorial in all my life. It seems that all I want for Christmas are clothes and clothing accessories. I've bought other stuff over the past year, like an iPhone and a new laptop so I'm all set with electronic toys for a while.
Here are the things I bought myself for Christmas.
Florsheim Cedar Shoe Trees
I've never owned shoe trees, but I recently bought a pair of Bostonian burgundy longwings at The Barn and they're nice enough to warrant some shoe trees.
Corduroy Mallard Pant from Rugby
I've been jonesin' for some corduroy critter pants for a couple years now, but they can be a bit pricey. I've been kickin' myself since last winter for not getting the flannel lined lodge chino from Rugby. But I think these are better and more of what I'm looking for anyhow.
Leather Man Ltd. custom D-ring ribbon belt
This isn't color I got, but you get the idea. I went a little crazy and got the red roman stripe.
I've been on a mission to find a new flay/ivy/scally cap. I've searched online, but a hat is really something that you have to try on before you buy it. It's all about how it feels and looks when you put it on your noggin.
I'd like to add that I got all of these things on sale and with free shipping. Cyber Monday and promo codes are beautiful things of great beauty.
