I have 15 and a half cousins.  (There will be 16 in February).  I love this time of year because between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, we get to see them all.  Here are two of them, and they have on my ties, WHICH they tied themselves.  It's a family talent.  So is looking good. They also get to wear a tie and a jacket to school every day.  Do you know what I could do with that?! Some guys are just born lucky.  These two are double lucky because their cousin has a tie company so they always have something to wear.


SNOW (hopefully)

Normally I am a warm-blooded guy.  I don't like to mess up my outfit with all the layers and stuff that my mom makes me wear when its cold. BUT I make an exception for snow.  I like snow. I like to play in it, help my dad shovel it, make forts out of it, throw it, miss school because of it, you get the idea.  Cool accessories come along with snow - boots, gloves, scarves, hats, goggles, shovels, facemasks... I also have an awesome overcoat that was my Uncle's. I think its about 100 years old.  It's cool: double-breasted, blue and grey checked tweed with a dark blue collar and a matching hat that has a chin strap with a weird buckle of some sort.  It fits over my suits but I also like to wear it with a pair of jeans and my corduroy jacket with the elbow patches.  Here it is:
