Local Plunder
The Holiday-Party-Domination Toolkit

This is the dawning of the age of the holiday party. A time of candied canes and special nogs and festively natty attire. So take this list, check it twice and then deploy it for holiday-party dominance.

UD - The Velvet Sport Coat

FOR THE MISTLETOE RENDEZVOUS

The Velvet Sport Coat

The velvet sport coat is as essential to a holiday party as “Mele Kalikimaka” and that one guy wearing a tuxedo T-shirt. Our pick: this green-velvet number, from the Brits at Topman. Bing would be proud.
411:
Green Velvet Shawl Blazer, $200, Topman, 478 Broadway (at Broome), 212-966-9555
UD - The Vintage Tie Bar

FOR THE BLACK-TIE (BUT NOT BOW-TIE) AFFAIR

The Vintage Tie Bar

It’s the little things. You’ve heard this. And now, via London tailoring pros Holland & Sherry, we present the king of the little things: anti-tie-flipping technology at its silver-and-gold finest, including one shaped into a hand of cards. Conversation: consider yourself started.
411:
Vintage Tie Bars, $75, Holland & Sherry Bespoke, 209 Elizabeth St (between Spring and Prince), 212-343-1261
UD - Sabering Your Way to Bubbles

FOR THE FIRST ONE OF THE YEAR

Sabering Your Way to Bubbles

Popping open a bottle of bubbly with your hands: gets the job done. The problem with that method, of course, is the devastating lack of swords. But that’s not a problem when you’re wielding this mod champagne saber. Maybe get a practice case or two first.
411:
Georg Jensen Champagne Saber, $200, Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave (between 60th and 61st), 212-826-8900
UD - An Honest-to-God Monocle

FOR THE CLUE-THEMED SOIREE

An Honest-to-God Monocle

You’ve done a top hat. Tried spats. Maybe even a cane. This time, you’re going with something bolder. Something completely unnecessary. You’re going monocle. Yes, as in this tortoiseshell, single-lens one from Warby Parker. And to think, they laughed when you bought that monocle fob...
411:
Colonel Monocle, $50, Warby Parker, 121 Greene St (between Prince and Houston), 646-568-3720
UD - Wi-Fi Cufflinks. Why Not.

FOR THE TECH-STARTUP BASH

Wi-Fi Cufflinks. Why Not.

Cufflinks have it way too easy. They skate through life, never having to do anything but keep the two sides of your shirt cuffs from flailing all over the place. Not a hard job. That’s why these ones create wi-fi hotspots, too. About damn time.
411:
Wi-Fi Hotspot and USB Drive Cufflinks, $250, AC Gears, 69 E 8th St (between Broadway and Mercer), 212-260-2269
