Reminder that invitation to post three pattern combo's is encouraged, just don't expect to be in the vote.

I think as a concept, this almost works? If you could find a combination of patterned fabrics with trousers that matched either the coat or the waistcoat and that worked together...I think Loro Piana has a book of flannels designed to match each other, say a chalk stripe two piece and a hounds tooth waistcoat ?

I'm new to this forum so I don't know if these Friday challenges are normal, but I like the idea. What's the deal? Is there a bunch of voting that goes on? Are multiple entries allowed? Can I just throw up several iterations for the hell of it because I think I can pull it off? Working without a net here, people!

Thanks! I'm basically self-taught, but I like to think I know a thing or two about color and patterns. Do I get slapped on the wrist if I post more than one?

This really depends on your artistic talent. There's no reason for us even to know it's been Sharpied if done well. Are you up to the challenge?

Ok, I'll give it a shot.
