If any of you use such a thing, then I require a close up to prove the pattern.

Oops, that is what I get for glossing over stuff (yes, it's obviously self striped).

I'm really worried the pents I need won't be back from the tailor in time. Not sure I have a backup plan either.... frown.gif

Oh, I hear you--I can't participate because I literally don't have the clothes for this one!

So far so good gentlemen, thanks making the effort & for not disappointing me.
There may be a second poll for those who make the effort but don't quite make the rules, any three patterns, casual's, self stripes etc.
For those going the odd trouser route, it may be easier to get to four patterns but I have always found the end result unbalanced & dissatisfying, it may just be me, but that is why I think of it as an extra cross to bear.
Good luck for tomorrow gents, I look forward to the remaining entries!

Yup, check scale of shirt is too close to that of suit, but suit pattern is top drawer.

I actually have three viable fits on deck, but it's all my pants that are either in the hamper or need to go to the cleaners! :-P
