Since it’s the holidays, although I can’t be sure because of the unseasonable warmth, let’s take a look at Ebenezer Scrooge. He’s not a character I’ve ever considered before, which is odd because A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite stories. So when Calvin Klein asked me to interpret a 2012 version using their collection, I jumped at the challenge.
Most will recall Scrooge as a grumpy businessman who despises the holidays, always ready with a “bah humbug” for any well-wisher, charitable soul or. Of course on Christmas Eve his ghosts catch up with him after a warning from his deceased business associate, Jacob Marley whose selfish ways earned him a wretched afterlife. The ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come show Scrooge Christmas in a new light. The ghost of Christmas yet to come, the most terrifying, gives Scrooge a preview of his grave and he finally repents his ways. Shocked and frightened, he awakes a changed man spreading the holiday spirit wherever he goes—from what little family he has left to the family of his mistreated employee, Bob Cratchit.
So the next time you’re feeling over the holidays, just remember that you probably once enjoyed them and if you remain selfish, you’ll get what’s coming to you in this life or the next.

My iphone case is now stretched from overuse. I used it so much that it’s stretched. It has almost no feeling to it. As usual, Jack Spade has the options.
1. An iphone case I like.
2. Another iphone case I like.
3. Don’t you care so much about this?
If you do, you may like this stuff too:
Dropping this stuff off at INA Men on Prince St. today. If you like, go get. I have no idea how much they’ll be, but they’ll be there. I didn’t really wear either of them.
