Still another gift certificate from Bergdorf to add to my stores. Can't use it because my wife (not me) decided against going to New York this Christmas season. Had hoped to add to my stock of grey flannel trousers at saletime. Oh well-my dad tells me that the weather is cold, dark and grim in NYC. Happy Holidays to all of you and hope we are all having fun, with or without desired new goods.
a pair of wing tip magnannis Cuff links (just plain silver oval's don't recall the brand and am to lazy to run downstairs) A kenneth cole watch that was way way oversized which has been returned. some cologne 2 BB ties
Nothing sartorially interesting, unfortunately. My wife and immediate family either (or both) seem to think I have more than enough clothes, etc. or can't imagine spending $150+ on a mere cotton shirt.
Virtual Clothes. It was all the rage this holiday season; I'm surprised nobody got them. Basicly you mount a projector to your shoulders and it projects a hologram on your body, changeable on a whim. Right now I've got it set on 'Joe Boxer.' Everybody thinks I'm comfortable as hell, but they have no idea.
What I got that I needed: I got a 200GB LaCie external Hard Drive and a new battery for my 12" PowerBook. The old one wasn't holding a charge. What I got that I didn't want or need but still think it is pretty damn cool: Season one of The Dukes of Hazzard on DVD What I got that I wanted but not quite: a 7" Henckels Santoku knife a 10" Cutco Chef's knife (I need a chef's knife and would love to have a Santoku, but I am planning on either returning or eBaying these for Wusthofs. Contact me if you're interested.) Some Williams-Sonoma cookbooks A Sharper Image barbecue fork with built-in thermometer from my friend who was a Senior Salesperson there. What I bought myself: a manicure/pedicure at the local Aveda spa a set of 500 11.5 gram clay composite poker chips a pair of Lucky Jeans a pair of Diesel Jeans a new sublet in Roscoe Village (Chicago) What I still plan on buying myself: a vintage leather cafe racer jacket a pea coat a pair of Dayton boots
