The Friday Challenge thread for 2014/12/12 has been created: http://www.styleforum.net/t/443852/the-friday-challenge-2014-12-12-retro-detailing
Whoever has the big brass ones to wear it (or the occasion - anyone getting married before Friday evening?).
Thread is up: http://www.styleforum.net/t/443852/the-friday-challenge-2014-12-12-retro-detailing
The aim of this week's challenge is to integrate something from another era into your fit - the era is your choice, whether it be the 1930's, the 50's, the 70's - whatever.

As it is, I'm taking my staff...
Okay, gentlemen, it would seem that it's my responsibility to come up with this week's challenge (and thank you all who voted for me - I could not have done it without the help of you all - and Turnbull & Asser). The suggestion of suits and boots has been made - are there any other suggestions that I might entertain before making a decision? For myself, I had thought of the theme of the "retro detail" - integrating into one's daily attire a detail from another era (the...
Flattery like that will get you virtually anywhere, Cleav (within reasonable limits, of course!).
