Local Plunder The Best Wares of the Holiday Season

We’ve seen your December, and it is full. Full of holiday parties. Full of rogue caroling. Full of... well, full of things that require you wear something with detachable fur. Below, all the festive wares you’ll need this season. Just let Santa know you’ve got this.

UD - A Coat with a Detachable Fur Collar
FOR THE OPEN-AIR RENDEZVOUS

A Coat with a Detachable Fur Collar

If it gets really cold out (or you’re going for a distinguished Eskimo thing this season), here’s what you’ll want: an Italian wool, double-breasted peacoat with alligator lining and a coyote fur collar. That’s detachable. Helpful if the holiday party you’re going to is PETA’s.

UD - Cufflinks Made from Streetcar Tokens
FOR THE CLASSIC COCKTAIL PARTY

Cufflinks Made from Streetcar Tokens

Cufflinks. The tried-and-true holiday party icebreaker (it was either them or the weather). For instance, take this pair made from circulated, 1940s-issued Atlanta trolley tokens. One reads “Georgia Power Co. Atlanta,” and the other, “Good for One Fare.” Also good for holding one shirt sleeve.

UD - Suede Boots from Sid Mashburn
FOR THE NOT-SO-SILENT NIGHT

Suede Boots from Sid Mashburn

Not all parties are preplanned. In fact, the best ones usually involve very short notice, directions to a strange address and a password. For those times, you’ll need a trusty pair of leather-lined brown suede boots that’ll go with basically anything. Even a red jumpsuit.

UD - Wrapping Christmas Around Your Neck
FOR THE NOG-FUELED SING-ALONG

Wrapping Christmas Around Your Neck

If you’re going to carol this year, you’re going to need some sort of warm beverage spiked with whiskey. Also, you’re going to need this flannel scarf. It’s plaid. It’s red. It’ll keep your vocal cords warm enough to hit that high C at the end of “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”...

UD - Holiday Spirit Pocket Squares
FOR THE JACKET-REQUIRED AFFAIR

Holiday Spirit Pocket Squares

There are a lot of ways to say you’re really into the holidays. The subtlest: these Christmas-colored pocket squares emblazoned with things like snowflakes, snowmen and penguins looking off into the distance. Wear that one if you’re feeling particularly pensive.
