The following were (unfortunately, and after some thought) disqualified, I'm sorry gents:

 

NOBD: Very peacockish, but looks mostly blue and off-white.

coxaca: Mostly white.

Butler: Same as NOBD, very nice "weird" shirt, but it's mostly blue.

I don't have a camera right now (and probably won't, for the forseeable future), but I will most definitely use this as an excuse to wear my green Rugby club collar shirt later this week.  Oh, and I highly recommend lavender and purple in general because it's a very versatile color.  Here's hoping we see some interesting stuff. thumbs-up.gif

i think Tril just won this one without even posting a pic.

Yeah, just like all those who flat out predicted he would win the hat challenge before a picture had been posted.

How did that work out?biggrin.gif

This rule kinda defeats the purpose of the thing, no? There's plenty of flexibility already in allowing any fit worn this week.

Agreed. It's a challenge. Not a "Look in your archived photos" thread.

 

I've got one shirt that is a little crazy. I'll give it a try.

Question on eligibility from the judge....does this work or is there too much white?

I think we should rethink using old pics.

post #15 of 317

^ Using old pics sucks all the spontaneity & fun out of the contest. New pics please!! :)

 

Great theme, btw. Can't decide whether to go tropical or business; weather this week would permit either, on different days...
