SB delivering the sartorial equivalent of a nuclear strike. Including the radioactive fallout. wink.gif

 

Butler - no purple at all? The sumptuary laws no longer exist, you know! colgate.gif

 

Betelgeuse - love the jacket!

(I think ditching trousers is more Derek's department than mine.)

close. saks off 5th! i wore it just for you. its much less offensive when its seen as a whole, and from a few feet away. regardless, i knew it was right up your alley.

Regarding SB's disaster of a fit, I was thinking that a navy linen SC and a different shade of green pant might have saved it... But then it wouldn't be the masterpiece that it is...Never mind.

Canta, I will have you know that every item here is lovely on its own. It's not their fault that I did this.

FWIW, the green is closest to that shown in the shoe shot. The full-length is glowing! That's what I get for editing pics on a tiny screen.

Clags, I will leave it up to you to choose which of my fits should be entered in the challenge.

This is pretty crazy even by my standards.  Purple tie and socks with green pants.  icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.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.  

Man, these pants are waaaaaaay baggier than any of my suit pants.

You say that as though I can't see them.

Funny, I've been in a similar situation today - a co-worker told me how much nicer the "slim" pants looked on me. I was wearing my cream linens, which are the baggiest summer pants I own. They just happen to drape amazingly.

I would assert that you actually can't see them in this context.

Very nice.  I really can't make out the colors though.  Purple tie, navy jacket, white pocket square.  I got that.  Everything else is unclear to me.  Shed some light.
