Local Plunder
You’ve Got Parties. Here’s What to Wear.

Let’s just say that your so-called dance card this holiday season is full to bursting at the seams. Speaking of seams, you’ll need to dress the part... and read on.

UD - A Velvet Blazer by Peter Millar

FOR HOBNOBBING AT THE THEATER

A Velvet Blazer by Peter Millar

It’s not every day that you come across a velvet blazer from a fellow who’s clothed the likes of President Clinton (Bill: huge velvet fan). If you want it customized to your exact specifications, the guys at Wingtip can arrange that. It’s like Christmas came early.
411:
Peter Millar Velvet Blazer, $695, Wingtip, 550 Montgomery St (at Clay), 415-765-0993
UD - A Plaid Vest Fit for the Highlands

FOR A NIGHT OF CAROLING

A Plaid Vest Fit for the Highlands

Consider this your ugly-Christmas-sweater upgrade, souped up with a side of backcountry lumberjack dapperness. It’s made by Golden Bear in Potrero Hill, with leather-lined pockets, Woolrich Woolen Mills plaid and wood buttons. Actually chopping wood isn’t required.
411:
Golden Bear Cazadero Vest, $325, Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th), 415-861-3373
UD - Girton Plaid Wool Pants

FOR THE BLUE-BLOODED SHINDIG

Girton Plaid Wool Pants

Nothing says the holidays like a swatch of Royal Stewart plaid. And nothing screams the holidays like these pants made with that plaid. They’re wool on the outside and silk-lined on the inside. But that’s for you to know and one lucky person to find out.
411:
Girton Slim Wool Pants, $148, Onassis, 845 Market St (in the Westfield), 415-281-8888
UD - A Not-Too-Skinny Tie

FOR THE CASUAL DINNER PARTY

A Not-Too-Skinny Tie

Sure, you could go bow tie. Great look. But this year, we’re thinking... bolo tie. Just kidding. Go big with a red plaid necktie like this one—or veer slightly more professorial in the gray houndstooth. Sometimes you just need to zag.
411:
Skinny Tie, $68-$125, Steven Alan, 445 Hayes St, 415-558-8944, and 1919 Fillmore St, 415-351-1499
UD - Custom Paul’s Hatworks Top Hat

FOR THE LINCOLN-THEMED FETE

Custom Paul’s Hatworks Top Hat

Lincoln: great movie. The reason: Daniel Day-Lewis, mostly. But also his top hat. Pay homage with your own custom one made from rabbit felt. Assuming you’re not going to be anywhere near Ford’s Theatre.
411:
Custom Top Hat, $300-$400, Paul’s Hatworks, 6128 Geary Blvd (at 25th Ave), 415-221-5332
UD - Angel and Devil Cufflinks and Studs

FOR THE BLACK-TIE OFFICE PARTY

Angel and Devil Cufflinks and Studs

You may, during the course of an office holiday party, find yourself making decisions. When making those decisions, it may help to have an angel and a devil on your shoulder. Or at least on your sleeves, as with these cufflinks. And no, they can’t undo anything involving your body and a copy machine.
411:
Angel and Devil Cufflinks and Studs, $1,000, Wingtip, 550 Montgomery St (at Clay), 415-765-0993
