FWIW, CinqueColori (actually, under the rules, SeiColori, but who's counting).

Blue
Grey
White
Green
Yellow
Cordovan

One hopes that the fit does not evoke either Ringling Brothers or Fisher-Price (though the inclusion of a red rubber nose or orange fright wig would push the color totals to seven or eight )






Nice, Crusty. Like the tie.

The tie is green with small orange dots, they look pink in the pic but it's orange, hence zee orange PS[/SPOILER]

Derek, I think there's a bit too much going on here, pattern-wise. You at least need a plain shirt without the twill, and a plain white square would help too.

The square and shoes look awfully close to the same color, but you deserve a pass.

Lavender shirt
Fuchsia/navy bow tie (weirdly tied, it would seem)
Brown sportcoat
Green pants
#8 shoes
"Black watch" colored cap

So: Lavender, fuchsia, brown, green, burgundy.[/SPOILER]

Great look, BB! The cap and bow are great. This style really suits you.

Mike and Acrid are great, but I already commented on them.

O/O, the tie is not something I'd wear, but as usual it's fantastically well coordinated with the rest of the outfit.

Still working on figuring out what to wear with this suit, so the challenge came at the right time to experiment a bit. Probably a bit too much, tbh, but hey, what's life without a little jazziness at times!

If it wasn't for the challenge, if I was using the same everything else, I think I'd have gone for a navy tie with some red highlights and something with vaguely similar colours for the square.

Looks like the trousers need to be shortened a fraction more too, based on the full-length pic. Funny, I didn't notice that IRL.

That's a sweet suit. I don't know if I'd have the guts to wear it, but it looks great on you. I think your alternative combo you mention sounds nicer than the one you're wearing, though.

Theo, you're killing it as usual. I do think the square is perhaps a bit too close in color to the blazer, but that's a very small quibble.


Edit to add: MKtitsworth: Your best fit yet, by far. A darker tie would have been better, but this is a huge step forward.

I really like this, acrid. I think pink and brown often look very good together, but I'm afraid that most other people don't so I often talk myself out of pink/brown combos before leaving the house.

You haven't been around long enough to know how ironic that compliment is. But thanks! It means I'm making progress.

Extra points for the salt and pepper hair.

The biggest problem I ran into, was taking pictures...
I couldn't took a picture of myself with right angle, to show the colours and fit properly.
Forgive me, but after countless tries, I gave up and decided to just display the items

1. Navy suit
2. Lavender shirt, with contrast white collar
3. Brown Tie
4. Orange/Yellow/Green (count 1) Pocket square
5. Burgundy oxfords

Bonus points: no black, no white, no grey!


Could be a major contender, but hard to assess without the outfit on.

Breaking out the new suit on Monday? Btw, I can't wait until I have salt and pepper hair. It's awesome.

^ New suit on Monday, yes. Someone once asked if I colored my hair gray. The look I gave her was similar to the left most pic.

really? i think the shoulders and waist suppression are pretty good (best he has posted yet - i agree).

however a striped suit jacket that looks very much like an odd jacket coupled with the overly wide (at least for his frame) bellied lapels and color choices makes it hard to stay its a "huge step" forward.

I agree and I would appreciate hearing what's off about the color choices.
