Zoolander
Yes, we're talking Thin White Duke. Even though I'm far from young Bowie proportions, I can usually squeeze into a 48 or  sometimes 50. My usual size is 48 in most brands, but with Dries outerwear I go 48 and blazers either 48 or 50. He does really narrow shoulders, but the sleeves are usually very generous so unless you have swimmer back, you can usually go with your normal size or one size up if you're in between.
  I wore a beret in the 90s. I also had a convertible ('64 Corvair) so it kept the grungy long hair in place. My friends made fun of me.  Now I have this oversized 30s Gatsby cap which kind of has a beret vibe but with a visor. It's also my Stevie Wonder 70s funk hat. I was wearing it to the AZ Stylefarmer meet-up last weekend.  
  My deep winter house wardrobe is a giant calf-length Yohji cardigan over Nike tech knit sweat suit. And Biki-logs. 
+1 penanceroyaltea ^ I think blue denim goes fine with an olive green M65 type jacket and brown workboots. I like the pop of red in the scarf and the bag. 
My personal wardrobe goal is to just have everything fit in one closet.   I'm more of a visual minimalist than an I-Only-Own-15-Things minimalist :-)  I like my house looking clean and fresh. I don't want my clothes spilling out into other rooms. You can actually cram quite a lot of garments into a small city closet if they are all organized and folded nicely. That's the one thing I took away from the Kondo book: cool origami folding methods.   This topic has come up...
Someone should get those pony-hair chelsea boots on grlld. 
Sounds like you already have a lot of things to do! The botanical garden near ASU is nice. And, there is some good hiking in north Scottsdale. I've been to Lost Dog Wash and McDowell Sonoran Preserve trails which are both near Taliesen. edit: Funny I'll be there exactly the same dates. Stylefarmer meet up!   For shopping I would look for turquoise jewelry or cowboy boots, but I have no idea where. 
a friend of mine was just praising the Patagonia "thermal weight" baselayers. super light but warm.    edit: I guess those are not wool. sorry!
Sorry more old crusty jazz from me. But this is really pretty and one of my favorite musicians. Bill Evans Trio performing at a home in Helsinki in 1970. In addition to beautiful music, there are bonus style points: bearded intellectuals, horn-rimmed glasses, Scandi furniture, chicks in turtlenecks, modern sculptures, paisley neckties and moustachioed bass players. Plus a view of the Baltic. The whole program is very good. Happy holidays everyone.
