Style Share: December

Sheesh. What a year / month / week (pick one or all of the aforementioned). I sincerely hope that you and yours are well and that you're able to spend some quality time with the ones you love over the course of the next couple weeks. If nothing else, remind the people in your life that you love them every chance you get.

It's been awhile since I've done a Style Share, so even if you're a new follower to the blog, fortunately the rules are quite simple; I offer up some items of clothing and the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said free* item email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site (I'll give you credit for the photo and even link your blog if you have one).

This month it's all about ties, and each one has sort of a winter / holiday theme. I'm sending out the first four claimed, so have at it.

Brooks Brothers Santa

Vintage Brooks Brothers Santa Claus emblematic tie. Not really much more to say other than that it's a classic.

Navy ski tie

Yellow ski jumpers emblematic tie on navy silk. Awesome as well.

Lands End candy cane

Lands' End green candy cane / mistletoe colored tie.

Pendleton tartan

Semi-wide Pendleton tartan tie in the colors of the season.

Brown ski tie

Wool / silk knit with another skier motif. I think it's going to snow here soon, and I hope it does in your area as well (once you reach your intended location).

Italian red dot

No-label made in Italy beauty with small black dots on juicy red. No problem going year-round with this.

As usual, claim your item in the comments, then email me through the address listed on the site. It's really that simple.

Perhaps it goes without saying, but if you see something you like that doesn't get claimed and you want to trade/purchase it, just email me. I've actually traded for a few items in the past and frankly it's nearly just as fun for me.

*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'm digging the Lands End tie. Love seeing the Made in U.S.A. label.

  2. Ooh! Ooh! I claim the Pendleton!

  3. I've been on the scout for a red tie for a while now and I think that lone Italian at the end fits the bill!

  4. Will; Mr. R; Bruce, shoot me an email and your ties will be on their way.

    Looks like the Santa and the two skiing ties are left. Anyone want to grab one of them?

  5. The yellow ski jumpers would be perfect for my husband. Thanks!

  6. If it's still around, I'd like the other skiers tie, thanks! A quick google search found this info on the Squire Shop of Hinsdale:

  7. Heck, I'll round it up to five and send out all of the claimed ones thusfar. If you haven't yet, please email me with your mailing address and I will get your ties out in the mail to you.

  8. The Santa tie would be a stunner with my BB's "fun Christmas pants" in four panels of plaid.

  9. I'm glad to see style share making a strong comeback, can't wait to see the returns!

  10. Thanks for the tie! Hey, I just noticed that it's the same one you're wearing in the previous post.

    You mean that the clothes you give away are—USED???


    1. Clothes are definitely used, yes.

      This one just happens to be a duplicate. :)
