Style Share: December

I'm trying something slightly different this month with Style Share, and I've arrived at this idea after reading comments from some regulars on the site. For the first week after posting (up until Dec. 28th), the items in this months entry will only be available to those who have commented on this site under posts other than Style Share. So, if you've commented on different entries in the past (I'm thinking of folks like Mr. Readerston, JH078, JKG, YankeeWhiskeyPapa, MarcoBerlin, and others) but haven't been quite quick enough on the draw, this one goes out to you...

As with other entries, the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said item of free* clothing email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site. First three items claimed will be sent out.

Robertson tartan

Unclaimed from last month, this lovely tartan tie features some great colors. Goes with just about anything.

Lands End tie

Lands' End tie in silver/brown, navy and red. Wintry mix.

Liberty of London tie

Liberty of London paisley in amazing colors. Might be madder. Either way, it's gorgeous.

Pendleton hat

Pendleton newsboy tweed hat in size large. If this fit me, I would be keeping it for sure.

two tone hat

One of the coolest hats I've seen in the past year. Vintage two-tone driving cap in gray-flecked tweed and black cotton velveteen. Insane.

Dunn & Co jacket

Best for last? If this chocolate corduroy Dunn & Co jacket fits you, you should be able to slay the town. Side-vented. I think it's a 42l, but check following measurements to make sure it fits you. Shoulders (seam to seam across back): 18"; Sleeves (outseam): 25.5"; Chest (armpit to armpit across front): 20.5"; Length (base of collar to bottom): 31"

As usual, claim your item in the comments, then email me through the address listed on the site.

*Seriously, it's free, and yours to keep forever. No strings attached. I won't share your name on the site or with anyone else unless you have a blog of your own that you want me to link. Please note that all clothing will be used (but certainly not stained, smelly, or damaged, as I do have standards), so please only agree to participate if this sort of thing doesn't gross you out. Thanks!


  1. I would love to give that tartan number a good home. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    P.S. And this time I'll keep my kids' grubby mits away from me until I get a picture for you.

  2. I WOULD request that incredible Pendleton cap if weren't cursed with such a massive melon. May it find a worthy home.

  3. Thank you for thinking of me and the others! Nice stuff as always. I sure wish that jacket were my size.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  4. Hehe mister mister Midwester :) As you are right, I was always late for your great monthly style share! Probably due to my different time zone in Germany, and me trying not to linger infront of my computer as much, but NOW I am in a new timezone again for work (China) and I happen to be online :)

    I am reading many blogs and comment just if I have really an opinion on something and want to share my idea. I dont actually know if I have commented on anything else than style share on your site.

    if not, excuse me, since on my blog I love comments and so do you on yours (besides I hardly get any, its on all facebook now, sadly)

    so if I am eligible for participating, I really LOVE that two tone drivers cap... :)

    yours truly, from Beijing China today


  5. MarcoBerlin: The hat is yours. I'm not sure how much shipping to China will be, but I _think_ I can handle it.

    JH078: The tartan is yours.

    Anyone else: There are still 4 items available. I can't believe a couple of those things haven't been claimed.

  6. Oh yay :) I made it, and BTW I really love that section of yours, style SHARE, hmm I am thinking how I can incorporate sth like this in my blog. I am not a fashion blogger, but I am into dressing appropriate and think of my appearance before I leave the door hehe :)

    No need to ship to China, I am here temporarily, leaving in January. BUT, I guess shipping to Berlin, Germany would coust around the same amount... :( For this, I'll think of compensation, either I get my girlfriend to take the BEST pictures with me wearing the hat for you (normally I am the photographer in our relationship) OR I send you a card or whatever from China :)

    Yours truly


  7. OK! How about the maybemadder?

  8. Marco: Drop me an email with the address you want it sent and I will get it to you.

    JKG: The maybe(likely)madder is yours.

    Everyone else: If you see something you can't live without of the remaining, let me know and maybe I can swing it. It is the season for sharing, after all. :)

  9. Is that Pendleton cap still available? I am not sure if it will fit my size 7 1/8 noggin. The corduroy jacket is a great find too.

  10. Excellent. Check your email for my addy -- thanks for the callout, too! Please accept my warm wishes for a peaceful and restful weekend (or, at the very least, safe travels).

  11. my mail is out too :) merry christmas!!!

  12. Wishing you a Merry Christmas. Off-topic, yet timely.

  13. Makaga: Shoot me your address through my email listed in the profile and I'll hook you up. I think it will fit you, as I wear a 7 3/8 and it's just a smidgen too snug for me.

  14. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and ask to see if that Lands End tie is still available...if not, no worries!
