The phrase Black Friday was originally coined from a financial crisis that occurred in the US, in 1869. Its reference to the “kick-off” to the holiday shopping season frenzy didn’t come about until the 1960’s in Philadelphia. Now, everyone knows that Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and usually bedlam is let loose. Some associate it with excitement of hunting down the best bargains of the Holiday season and some see it as something to avoid like the Flu. Not this intrepid blogger – my primary destination?, Macy’s men’s department.
When the weather starts turning cooler, it’s time to break out the sweaters. For your wardrobe, sweaters are versatile as layering pieces or to stand alone. At Macy’s they have a great selection of different sweaters that include: turtlenecks, full and half zip, cable, argyle, vintage, cashmere, ribbed, cardigan, slim-fitting, and chunky knit styles. For around $29.99 to $329.99, the choices are endless.
INFEASIBLE: Pink shorts
No. Just no.
Feasible: Simple dark gray shorts

Nothing fancy here, but they fit snuggly and look posh enough.
INFEASIBLE: Driving caps with *crazy* colors
No one, including models, should ever wear something like this. Driving (or “cabby”) caps are silly to begin with, but then to go and make one consisting of a patchwork of a nauseating designs? The horror, J. Crew, THE HORROR.
Feasible: Corduroy hats

If you’re going to wear a cap, go corduroy. This one in particular looks good even on this android-looking fellow. And hell, if you’re feeling frisky, you could even throw a pin advertising your favorite band* on it. Totally ill, son.
*Weezer’s ok, but I do like the pin.
INFEASIBLE: Wallet + Money Clip + Credit Card case +…
There is this phenomenon in fashion called the Will to Over-Accessorize, and none of you should get pulled into it. This warning extends to even your wallet. Don’t have, on top of a three fold wallet, a credit card case, a business card case, a money clip and photo insert with pictures of your dog or, heaven-forbid, your grandchildren. Not only does it make you look like a fool when you have to cycle through all that shit to get to get your coin purse, it makes your pants pockets swell and look lumpy.
Feasible: Just a wallet and money clip

Keep it simple (my usual advice). These two items aren’t exactly high-class merchandise, but they look nice and they won’t break the bank. And seriously guys, what’s the point in buying a really expensive wallet with a gigantic gay logo on it? How often does one see someone else’s wallet and form strong impressions about the person as a result of what they keep their money in?
