    Holiday Parties - What are you wearing?

    I have three Christmas parties in the span of 8 days. We have been so busy that I really haven't put much thought in to these parties until I realized that the first one is about a week away. Never one to panic I have started to panic.

    Since we are short on time and I have really tighten up the budget I have decided on the following which I already own:

    All outfits include:
    JCrew Factory Thompson suit in the original charcoal
    Allen Edmonds Chester Wingtips
    silver cufflinks
    TheTieBar 1.5" charcoal tie bar
    Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic

    Party 1:
    CT french cuff white/black windowpane
    red wool tie

    Party 2:
    JCrew Factory royal blue gingham shirt
    black silk tie

    Party 3:
    Ratio spread collar with french cuffs - White
    CT Waist coat in matching charcoal
    tacky Christmas tie

    What do you guys think and what are your plans for the upcoming party season?

    It's Canada, man. Don't feel too bad.

    Me? I'm going all professorial for an upcoming party. Dark denim, ocbd, dark grey cardigan, brown/fleck herringbone harris tweed, and a really open-weave wool tie.

    Or maybe I'll wuss out with the jacket.

    Since it's Alberta, does that mean you're wearing a Canadian Tuxedo?

    I'm in Canada and have never heard of a New Years Masquerade. Is that an Albertan tradition?

    Am I missing a play on words here?

    Masquerade ball/party, wear mask, dress well. Hope some drop dead gorgeous women are there and you hit the jackpot etc.

    $100 a ticket, new years eve of course, not day.
