Just received my secret Santa. I told the sender I like overwrought cocktails and menswear accessories. @NakedYoga did not disappoint.

First some lovely cocktail mixers courtesy of Charleston, SC.

The one on the left I'll bring tonight to a holiday party but the one on the right is staying with me. I love a good tom collins

Next there was a solid holiday-themed pocket square from another local SC shop.

Once tucked into my obnoxiously loud Santa blazer, the look will be complete.
Thanks again. Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday and New Year to all.

Awesome, I'm glad you like it! I actually have the same pocket square, albeit in a slightly different color scheme. The best part is that it's reversible.

Here's me wearing mine last week: https://www.styleforum.net/threads/...art-iv-starting-may-2014.394373/post-11653161

Really interested to hear how those cocktail mixers work out.

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a great Christmas. I’ve been running this gift exchange for years and it’s been a lot of fun. Always happy to see people post their gifts.

Merry Christmas!

Daddy @LA Guy took amazing care of me!

A beautiful Eaton press leather bound SIGNED edition of neuromancer.

Didn't even come with a not telling. Me how big of a cuck I am :)

My guy, thank you so so much! Very rarely do I find a book that I value too much to physically read, but this one is one I am contemplating making. A shelf bunny

An amazing holiday season as always!

Was back in the office today for the first time since the 21st, so I was able to take delivery of my secret Santa package.

@PASstudy hooked me up with some socks fit for a degenerate golfer like me, as well as a nice watch repair kit (box came open in the mail, so the contents are a bit jumbled). Love it!

Got to the office today from my warehouse - pants a bit tight from Christmas overindulgence. Was good today, no random snacking.

The best laid plans.

Thanks @Jen . Always love fun stationary. And this walnut, cranberry bar is excellent!

Hope that you guys had a great holiday!

My secret santa was @bdavro23, and I received this wonderful trio of pieces!

The book is amazing, this pottery piece is beautiful, and it's borderline irresponsible how quickly we consumed that bag of coffee. It was delicious. Thanks so much!

I started Sharpe this year on the recommendation of a friend. We have a yearly reading challenge for charity that awards bonus points for chain reading so I picked it up. It is... very pulpy. Definitly an indulgent read. If you like it, make sure to look up a reading order. They were written extremely out of order. I'm on 14 and still enjoying, though some are stronger than others.

The Mignon chocolate really is the best. If you are a marzipan fan make sure to save row 6 #4 for yourself!

I plowed through the Sharpe book in about 3 evenings. It was absolutely fantastic. I'm planning to stop at the library on the way home from work this afternoon to pick up Sharpe's Triumph.
