Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of textured solids as well. I just chose to go non-texture for this specific challenge.

I wasn't planning on submitting this as my offering, but the drenching rains today prohibited the alternative, so:

See, Tirailleur, that essentialism will always get you into trouble.

Because why? Your solids melt upon contact with water?

Birdseye is quite possibly my favourite suiting. Incredibly versatile, and not boring - which some solids sometimes are. nod[1].gif

Still, I assume the peasants are rushing to get the hell out of his way as we walks down the street....

 

 

That tie, the knot and the dimple are damn near perfect in my opinion. Clearly my favourite outfit so far. Stitches, RD, ping and ian will get my vote, too if there's multiple choice again.
