    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    White tie at Holly Jolly Mocha is a StyFo tradition.

    That's a good approach to dressing up for New Year's. With that in mind, there would be no such thing as arriving overdressed. I quite like it.

    I am attending a smaller party of no more than twenty friends. No dress code per se, but most everyone makes some effort to dress nicely. I will probably wear a white dinner jacket, one button, shawl collar. Black velvet butterfly bow tie. I realize a white dinner jacket in December breaks with protocol, but I'm comfortable bending this rule with our mild desert winter. There is also something inherently wintry to me about the off-white/cream color of the jacket.

    I'm celebrating the only way the New Year should be celebrated according to my Wiccan order: in the nude.

    Oh, OP was talking about December 31st?

    Also in the nude, just in my bed with my girlfriend and maybe a friend.

    That sounds like something that might work well for me. Anyone seen any good examples of such an outfit that might help me along? Also, that type of outfit sounds like it could leave room to throw in a merino v-neck and tie too.... thoughts? How about no sweater and tie? Am I completely off track yet? lol

    I'd wear a red, or dark green, or blue, or even yellow merino vneck, with a tartan shirt and a wool plaid tie with simple tan chinos.

    This is my philosophy/excuse for dressing up every day. New Years lets me take it to the max (top hat and tails).

    What do you guys think about something like this? I like the idea of a herringbone blazer look like below. Is that a good or bad though? Any suggestions for a different way to go?

    I know someone is going to ask: this is straight off the Zara website.




    I was considering a sweater like one of these two as well:

    I don't know about you guys, but whenever there's alcohol involved, I prefer to keep the nice clothes closeted.

    Do you have a Ducati in the living room, too?

    Nice clothes + alcohol = panty dropping

    Most of us don't wear panties like you do, however.

    I used to wear them, but they are all in wads and bunches on the floor.

    I'm going with a midnight blue suit, solid black (regular) tie, white shirt, french cuffs with links. Tan cashmere overcoat if it's cold.

    and yes, I will be enjoying an adult beverage while wearing tailored clothing.

    Yeah, but if it's "enjoying an adult beverage..." it's a little different...

    I'm assuming there will be none of this :spew:
