    One of my 8th graders gave it to me today as a Christmas gift...I was not wearing it when i left the house this morning, but since she gave it to me I figured I'd wear it for the day...

    I love B's jacket, obviously. I don't understand people's aversion to loud patterns/plaids. They're not good for everyday, but I think for the month of December they're more than acceptable. Maybe I'm just a big kid at heart, but to me there's something so special that starts on Thanksgiving and ends on New Years. But then I still cry at the end of It's A Wonderful Life after seeing it hundreds of times.

    I'm all for getting into the spirit of Christmas and this can be done in a number of ways evolving from various traditions but I utterly fail to see the connection between celebrating Christmas and weariing horrifically loud tartan jackets.

    Although some have managed to butcher the concept - this from GQ in 1973

    Actually the jacket in tartan in this image is far from wretched - but the tie :facepalm:

    We'll not even discuss the madras.

    The thing is, I bet wherever old Bill went no one gave a shit that he wasn't in a plain dinner jacket, etc. Either they didn't know what it should normally look like, or they didn't care. I think we all forget, if momentarily, that outside of ourselves and our companions, no one really gives a shit about what we're wearing, no matter how much one may wish otherwise.

    I shall balance out this festivity with as much grim and gray as possible.
