Read your post just in time. So, gentlemen, my contribution (that will catch no vote). Unfortunately today is rainy weather so I had to use the flash. Sorry about the missing lower part... Not a pic I'm proud of, OTOH it's for the Friday challenge.



Blazer: Night blue, wonderful cashmere.
Shirt: Blue
PS: Blue
Tie: Blue with gold and green
Cup: Blue with golden stars.
Eyes: Blue (not the flashy red you see)

Thanks for clearing things up. I'm just getting started with this stuff and am really trying hard to get a grasp of it all

Love the socks, too.

Knew it as soon as I saw your pic, mate.
Bought the grenadine version, and got the same favourable reaction from people.
Thanks, gentlemen. Either the Forvm's anti-purple coalition has disbanded or it was a figment of my imagination in the first place. Somehow I got it in my head that purple ties are only slightly more tolerated than black suits here.

Thanks for noticing, bb. That's exactly what I was going for. Less Rocky Mountain High; more Appalachian Spring.

It is going to take quite a lot (much more than I've got) to top this. Blue shoes?? With blue laces?!?!?!?!

Back to boring. And blue.

Gents- you should post these shots in the 'Rock your Socks' thread... Proud of you, TB...something other than 'conservative. LOVE the monks, Crusty! I don't like most of the monks posted here, but yours - I would wear them.

Beg to differ. There's NOTHING boring about this look:

Just wondering, but would a blue shirt and blue socks be enough for the blue challenge? No sportcoat or suit involved. Also doubt it'd get many MC votes but sort of wanted to enter a sw&d thing in one of these.

Nope, minimum requirements are at least a jacket, or a full suit. Accessories alone dont count.

And as an aside- if you are entering today, it really helps when I make the poll if you put "Friday Challenge" somewhere in the text of your post

Friday Challenge (see, I read your instructions, oh, Spoo-meister . . .)

It occured to me not long ago that one of the great sources of pleasure in popular entertainments these days is invocation of the sense of moral superiority in the viewer, i.e., to put on TV, as entertainment, a person or persons so reprehensible as to please the public that they are not him or her. (it is my only explanation for the popularity of "The Jersey Shore", which does rather take the prize for reprehensible behaviour in creatures otherwise believed to be homo sapiens.)

On the Internet as well, there are few pleasures as acute as the venting of righteous anger in response to the posting of a troll, in an attempt to silence said troll with logic and persuasive arguments. The only problem with such a pleasure is that is usually the desired response of the original poster, looking to incite flame wars wherever possible.

That would never be my intent in posting here. However, as my personal style is often at odds with the local aesthetic, if I let out all of the sartorial stops (an unfortunate habit of mine), I will most certainly be the object of criticism, which will invoke that sense of, if not moral, then sartorial superiority that brings so much pleasure to so many.

So it will be, I sense, with today's posting - a complex set of attire accessorized heavily, with more than a whiff of costume about it, but, it does qualify for today's competition - blue is the dominant color.

For your viewing pleasure (one way or another), then . . .

Ye are the Shakespeare reincarnate of SF, both in language and in dress. It took me twenty minutes to decipher your post, and another twenty to give you the appropriate amount of homage by bowing.
