NYE Look

New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite celebrations.  It’s just another night, but the ‘turning the clock’ plays well with my psyche in that it’s a night of optimism for what’s to come.  For many years I spent NYE at the Fox Theater with Widespread Panic.  Then it was bouncing around Atlanta parties or watching the Peach Bowl.  Most recently, Mrs. RCS and I have hosted some fantastic NYE parties at our house.  That woman loves to host.

This year is a little different, for obvious reasons.  Our plans are to get together with our neighbors (aka – our ‘pod’) and ring in the new year with a catered dinner (something like Local Three), really good champagne, and music.  Mrs. RCS insisted that we all dress to the nines, which we all agreed was a great idea.  It’s been too long…here’s what I’m thinking:

From top left:

Eton White Dress Shirt:  Eton arguably makes the best off-the-rack dress shirt in the world.  Get sporty.
Drakes Merino Wool Long Sleeve Polo: I dig the collar over collar look.  And this is a smart way to pull it off.
Drakes Print Wool Scarf: Maybe a little dandy, but I love these scarves as a way to dress up an outfit.   That long walk to the next cul-de-sac might get a little chilly…
W. Kleinberg Shark Belt: A sharp exotic, one you don’t see too often.
Boardroom Socks Purple Merino Wool Socks: Add a little color to the outfit in an unexpected way.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Grand Date Watch: Bring out the big gun on NYE.  Two options to count down to midnight…
Sid Mashburn Grey Wool Trousers: Impeccably tailored with no break and a 2″ cuff.  These should be a workhorse in your wardrobe.
Martin Dingman Addison Horse Bit Loafers: Black sleds for a fun night.  Make sure they are shined appropriately.
Hart Shaffner Marx Wool & Cashmere Topcoat: The reality is that living in Georgia doesn’t present too many opportunities for a heavy topcoat.  HSM makes a great, inexpensive option in a darker camel.  Worth the investment.

What are your NYE plans?  Got anything good cookin’?

    I’ll miss WSP not playing live this year and will have to make due with the 1995 Phish NYE show rebroadcast. If the weather holds, I’ll be in the back yard breaking in the my new Solo Stove, new Tellason denim and new-to-me Alden Indys. Don’t miss dressing up in the least.

      You can always watch the WSP 12/31/99 NYE show tonight rebroadcast, It’s from Phillips Arena and while I would rather go to the Fox the Phillips shows were bad ass.

    This year, as is the tradition, we’re on a very quiet stretch of Florida’s gulf coast west of Apalachicola. Shorts and a polo, perhaps a nice belt, and likely my Quoddy deck shoes, if any. Looking forward to ringing in a new year with family. HNY to all the RCS readers!
