Now, there are some things you most definitely do not want to wear during the holiday season. Above all, you want to avoid any seasonal ties, socks, handkerchiefs, or shirts like they are the plague — because they are. They are kitschy, gimmicky plagues of fashion and they need to be avoided like the plague.
In general, darker jeans or pants are a better bet. After all, the snow can get muddy, accidents happen — but they will not show up so much on dark colors, so no outfits will get ruined right before a holiday party or get together with a date.
Now, a lost art: why do so few men carry handkerchiefs? You should. You should always have one with you, in fact — it is both stylish and gentlemanly.
