Indeed I do!
Pocket squares, however many you stuff into a breast pocket, count as one pattern towards your total!
Socks do not count.
Additional items like overcoats, scarves & hats do not count but are welcome if you can integrate them coherently into your post.
For those of you unable or unwilling to go the full four, please try for your best three pattern combos and post here, they will not be entered into the vote but may serve as inspiration/examples of coherence.
Any more questions...?

I don't own any patterned shirts, they're all solid blue, white or pink. I'll just use this challenge for inspiration, in order to find out what the most versatile patterned shirt will be. I'm guessing it'll be a bengal stripe.

Excellent, excellent theme.

 

I picked a not-dissimilar theme for a Friday challenge back in their first incarnation, and IIRC, it brought out an excellent mix of good, bad, and most horrendously ugly combinations. Highwire themes are always good entertainment value!

 

Looking forward to this one. I also like the rule that you can pick any one outfit from the week as your entry; nice one.

Indeed, I think your's was the challenge that got me posting rather than just lurking, it was certainly the inspiration for this challenge. IIRC, NYI won with a truly spectacular vintage suit and paisley scarf combo.
@ Monkey face & other plain shirt owners, I may be convinced to allow a sweater vest/waistcoat as a patterned layer, but it would have to be seamlessly executed...
Reminder that invitation to post three pattern combo's is encouraged, just don't expect to be in the vote.

TTO - you must get in the cage for this one.

I think all my summer weight SCs are solid. I may have to make myself uncomfortably hot for this one, or bow out. Or someone can overnight me an awesome summer weight patterned jacket.

Put it on, then ditch it, use it only for the challenge purposes. You don't have excuses, estitchy, you are going to wear a PS! lol8[1].gif

 

Have you decided what colour it will be? bigstar[1].gif

I have decided on the PS. Its the only item I'm decided on.
post #41 of 423
TTO - in some of the example pics you posted, the combos included 2 striped items of different scales/sizes.

This is cool to do in this Fridays challenge and will be included in the poll?
