So I'm actually wearing denim shorts, a very lightweight gauze shirt and blue suede chukkas. But I can certainly do purple - so here's a reminder what I might have worn had this challenge been some other time...




Deets: 3-piece suit is bespoke, made by Walker Slater of Edinburgh from Dashing Tweeds fabric, shirt is Dunhill (which I probably wouldn't wear in this combination again), and most importantly, the purple tie is cashmere from Borsalino.(This is also a rather scary photo for me, because I'm now about 4kg lighter than March, when I took this shot)


Fantastic jacket.

Thanks! But there's already stiff competition, and I'm sure more will rock in over the course of the day. I want to see what the likes of Butler and Tira might come up with, too! These challenges are always the most fun when there's a large field of entries.


Don't wait for me . I do not own a purple anything peepwall[1].gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

This is pretty crazy even by my standards.  Purple tie and socks with green pants.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif  Looks kinda familiar though...  I love the fit of the pants.  These seem slimmer than your suit pants.  I think it looks better on you.

I wasn't going to upload this, but Sugarbutch's last fit encouraged me. 

 

Quick shot before going out.

This is a masterpiece.

It's not just that each item (except the shirt) is fugly in its own right it's that together they're, somehow, even worse.

If only the worth of a challenge were measured by the deviance of its participants.
