Text provided directly from Holdfast... Pattern Frenzy Friday! The core challenge is to be able to incorporate those patterns into a whole outfit that pleases the eye, without tipping over into a Hieronymus Bosch-esque level of fantastical insanity. Wear whatever you like, but no solids allowed (shoes and other leather accessories are excepted). Your shirt, suit, tie, square, socks and so on must all have a pattern with at least two colours. They can be as muted/small or as loud/flashy as you like but they must all have a multi-coloured pattern. Texture/weave doesn't count, there need to be some different colours within fabric. So a black/white herringbone jacket counts as pattern even though it seems solid grey from a distance... but a plain grey herringbone would be a solid and therefore not allowed. A solid donegal doesn't count, but a multi-coloured donegal that appeared solid from a distance would be permitted. You get the idea. The aim is, of course, to create the best looking outfit within those parameters.
