Around these parts, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until we dust off the DVD player and pop in Christmas Vacation. After watching it for the 300th time last night, we came to the realization that Clark Griswold paved the way for winter menswear as we know it.
1. Canada Goose Parka
The only way to flex in below zero weather.
2. Sorel Boots
Perfect when paired with the parka.
3. The Kurt Cobain Cardigan
Before Kurt, there was Clark.
4. Tortoiseshell Frames
Way out in front of Warby Parker.
5. Puffy Vest, Plaid Flannel, Snapback
Try to keep up with this fit.
6. Tasteful, Toned-Down Christmas Sweater
Ugly Christmas sweaters are very 2014.
7. The Hockey Jersey
Wearing a jersey before it was a thing. Bonus points for personalization.
8. Classic Khaki Trench
For those mild Christmas shopping days.
“The most enjoying traditions of the season are best enjoyed in the warm embrace of kith and kin. Thith tree is a thymbol of the thpirit of the Griswold family Chrithmath.” – Clark Griswold
