I never saw a purple cow,

I never hope to see one;

But I can tell you, anyhow,

I'd rather see than be one.

 

Rules are straightforward: wear a purple tie.

Note that the footwear in this picture was expressly chosen at the suggestion of Claghorn.

First time I've ever worn this suit. Looking at the picture, I think that the pants need to be taken in a bit in the crotch (a little too much fabric there) but otherwise, I'm pleased with how it turned out..

Assuming that my tailor finishes altering a suit of mine by this afternoon, and that I can post my entry one day early, I'm in. I won't see the results until my return from Vancouver/Seattle on the 7th, but as I have virtually no chance of winning, not exactly a nail-biter of a finish.

Didn't realize that I actually have 7.

I knew clag had this planned since I sold that tie months ago. He saw it happen and planned this thing from the very beginning.

Subscribed. Any restrictions on the shade of purple (e.g. does lilac work)?
