You have no idea how tempted I was to create a gift guide consisting entirely of black “Ivy chic” items. But seriously, it should come as no surprise that advertising support is what has enabled me to devote the time necessary to inform and entertain you as we approach our 900th post. So the following are some holiday gift suggestions from our sponsors and associates, specifically chosen by me.

Above is a handsome watch from Brooks Brothers, who get the lead image because they are the king of this genre. Continuing in alphabetical order, we have the Wilton Weejuns from Bass:
