    Leather jacket from Banana Republic, and money. I am using it to stock up on dress clothes for my new job. Got some dress pants, sport coat. Need to get some new shirts, ties, shoes soon also.

    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.

    On the sartorial front, a pair of sterling silver collar stiffeners, and cash which I used to buy some Alfred Sargent chukka boots from Pediwear.

    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.

    I am still a child, but didn't get anything either.

    Maybe we could make a "what did you get yourself for xmas" thread. I got myself a sweet suit. Just hope it fits.

    I'm so not going to touch that one.

    At any rate, I celebrate Christmas on January 7 so no presents for me yet. What do I want? Nothing...I got enough stuff.

    I just noticed your quote, and recalled a story:

    A year or two ago, I had hired a few freelancers for a rather official event. One man showed up wearing the most awful light grey suit, far too small for him, not flattering in the least, given his complexion (he was a red-head). He said to me, in a panic: I have this embarrassing problem. Look. I look down, and his right inner pant leg is split at the seams. Another one of my freelancers, a woman, shows up and says she can fix it temporarily with my handbag sewing kit. And I hear the man grumbling, as he goes off with the woman freelancer: I don't understand, it's brand new, I bought it at the Men's wearhouse.
