Tis the season indeed! And when you’re looking for some perfect holiday accessories that you’ll wear time and again during the party circuit….well here you go. Hand needlepoint belt from Smathers & Branson. Incredible detail shows off the icons of the holiday!
It’s official, the holidays are upon us. Friends, family and good times are what the next few weeks are all about. And there is nothing better on Thanksgiving morning, Black Friday morning, Christmas morning and (for sure) New Year’s Day morning than a good bloody mary. If you’re not familiar, then it’s time you discovered Big Tom Bloody Mary Mix. Direct from England, this is some good stuff. Add two ounces of vodka and it’s even better. If that’s not your thing, then Big Tom is great on its own.
We have two sizes.. the large 25.4 oz bottle for entertaining and the small 8.5 oz bottle for two cocktails and perfect for stocking stuffers and hostess gifts.
Grab a bottle (or two) for the coming days… you’ll be glad.
M. S. McClellan is constantly on the look out for the new and unique. Those items that you won’t find anywhere else. With these new weekender bags from Hook & Albert we think you’ll agree that we struck gold. It’s a garment bag – duffle bag all in one. No more juggling two pieces of travel luggage at the airport. Or worse yet trying to pack your suits and dress shirts into a rolling case only to get to your destination to find your clothes are wrinkled. We think the Hook & Albert Weekender solves both problems. Compact enough to treat as a carry on. Big enough to get everything you need for a weekend out of town.
The Weekender starts as a garment bag laid flat so you can get a suit and some dress shirts laid out (or a sport coat and two pair of trousers and dress shirts) and then zip up the case to create the duffle. Since there is no folding involved, your dress clothing remains fresh requiring only a quick shake out when you arrive. The inside walls on the ends serve as a shoe caddy for extra reinforcement and stability. Zip up the sides and use the inside as the duffle bag. It’s roomy enough to hold extra jeans, shirts, sweaters, underwear, socks and dopp kit. (You’ll see how much it holds below.) Zip up the top securely and you’re off and running.
What and who is this bag perfect for? Weddings, guy trips, the man who takes 2-3 day business trips, a weekend getaway (obviously) and a host of other short term travel adventures. We’re pretty sure that a Hook & Albert Weekender will become your go-to for quick trips. If you’re really stumped for a unique holiday gift….here you go. We have two models available – brown leather (featured here) and an olive waxed canvas.
First – it’s a hanging garment bag. Roomy enough for a suit or a blazer and two trousers.
Plenty of inside pockets for belts, ties, cuff links, pocket squares, braces ……
The ends serve as a shoe caddy that provides some stability to the duffle….
Zipped up and waiting for more clothes!
Loaded up….and ready to hit the road!
Zip up the sides and securely fasten with these metal clips…..
We got all this into the Weekender including the sport coat and trousers….
Side pockets on the front and a deep zippered pocket on the back provide quick access to the stuff you need quick.
It would appear that the cold weather has arrived and it might be here for some time. It makes for festive holidays, egg nog and what not with the possibility of getting snowed in somewhere remote. While others are out raiding Kroger for bread and milk, you should take a look at our new outerwear that will help you endure and survive the Vortex in style….. and while you’re at it why not throw on a colorful scarf from our many resources!

If you’ve been with M. S. McClellan for any amount of time then you remember when argyle and fair isle sweaters with your favorite jeans or khakis was the order of the day. It not only looked right, but it felt right. It made fall feel more like, well… fall. Brilliant autumnal colors are the hallmark of argyle and and fair isle sweaters that go beautifully with cords, oxford cloth button down and a navy blazer and many other combinations.
We owe a debt of thanks to the Duke of Windsor for the popularity and endurance of these classic patterns. For it was he that made both patterns fashionable on the golf course and for casual dress – and whatever the Duke wore conferred instant validity for the masses. Both patterns are synonymous with the word “preppy”, and why not? Take a look at old Ivy League photos and you’ll see an argyle or fair isle sweater on someone. Look at any old Ralph Lauren ad campaigns from the 70’s and 80’s and you’ll see an argyle or fair isle peeking out. There’s a reason these patterns were once so ubiquitous – it’s because the argyle and fair isle work with so much and add a dash of color besides.
M. S. McClellan is proud to introduce a new offering from Harley of Scotland. Simply beautiful argyles and fair isles that are sure to be a favorite in your wardrobe. The colors scream fall and you’re bound to be noticed (for the right reasons) with these luxurious sweaters. As we said above, they look right, they feel right and they make fall feel a little better.
What could be more perfect?? A donegal blazer with fair isle sweater, check pattern dress shirt and cords….
How awesome is this?
Now this is great …. a fair isle shawl collared sweater.
Kind of begging for a day trip to the Smokies…no?
