In this case, the green/blues/browns of the centre rather than the yellow of the edges.

glad this pic showed up better!

thanks for the tip, ill keep in mind for my next PS appearance. i kind of just scrunched it up and shoved it in, making sure a lil bit of the burnt orange showed, to pick up on the tie color a tad.

Thank you, dear Mimo. FYI: I don't own cargo pants and I never go sockless in pictures smile.gif.

NOBD, I apologise; I have rather lumped you together with the vile Derek, borderline criminally cargo-panted Kappelan, and incorrigibly unsightly-ankled SouthernStyle.  Among other felons.

 

Stitchy, I think you look great. You should keep rolling with this.  That square might not be entirely SF-approved, but it's not crazy either, especially at short notice.  And it's kind of...you.  Very well done I'd say.   :)

GMMcL - nice combo. is the jacket more brown or more green? also, far be it from me to say this, but that fit might have been more suited for a more dressy pair of socks. keep on keepin on.

Very nicely done indeed! I like all the colours together, and that's a very difficult tie to work into a look. I'm not 100% on board with the shirt (ever so slightly more white space would be perfect), but certainly going to get a vote from me assuming the contest poll will be multi-choice.

Extremely high on the difficulty scale, so kudos for attempting this! I love the suit, and actually like the whole outfit too. if I was to be super-nitpicky, I wonder if a square more in the cream/tans/browns range might have worked even better in terms of balancing the look in terms of the colour spectrum, but given the sheer complexity of what you've put together here, I really am looking for things to quibble about. I'll be chucking one of my votes your way, for sure.

Thanks. This suit gives me fits, and I think I tried about every square in my drawer three times before (somewhat reluctantly) settling on this one. Honestly, if it wasn't for a challenge, I wouldn't have tried to do three more patterns with this suit. I had another four-pattern fit picked out that was much more subdued and much more to my taste. However, previous experience tells me that challenge voters tend to reward boldness more than taste, so I decided to go with this one. biggrin.gif

Thanks, Stitch (and everyone!). Jacket is definitely green. I think you're right, I probably should have reached for my beige Panthys.

And HF: Thanks very much! Voting is going to be particularly tough. Some really good stuff out there.
