The birthstone for January is garnet and its name probably came from the Latin word "granatum" meaning pomegranate" which is a dark red wine color just like the garnet gemstone. In ancient times, night travelers would wear a piece of garnet to protect them from vampires and other predators of the dark. At night they would wear a chunk of garnet stone around their neck as they traveled. It is said the garnet would light up their pathway and show them where to travel as well as protect them from accidents.
In many ancient cultures, warriors wore garnet to protect them in battle; it was set in helmets, shields, and other pieces of armor. When socializing, dignitaries dropped a piece of garnet in their wine glass to protect them from poisoning.

ACCESSORIES RULE IN DAPPER
Hats, pocket squares, cuff links, ties, bow ties and watches!
You can often find great bargains on dapper items at thrift stores or on e-bay and amazon. Just be selective and if an item seems questionable, ask for your friend's opinion. Don't be afraid to experiment and have fun as you develop your dapper.
In the photo above is Paul Newman, notorious for his blue jean button-down shirts. Denim is dapper! For pants use denim, chino, or khaki with a belt that fits well and is buckled two holes down.
Plaid shirts that button down paired with solid color blazers such as navy, gold, gray or brown will work fine.
SHOES such as wing-tips, loafers, suede boots, or sandals look awesome with dapper outfits. A good pair of boots are always a good choice if you are not sure what to wear.
Hollywood is filled with dapper suits and accessories. You will find some of your favorite stars decked out in dapper.
