THE POLL IS LIVE!
To sum up: shit that shouldn't go with other shit, but actually does. Or doesn't. Colors, pieces, brands - it is open to your interpretation, but if you don't post in the spirit of The Challenge, you will disqualified and ridiculed. Yes, you are being actively encouraged to wear a Rick Owens safari jacket with Indy boots, or a tailored jacket with sweatpants - you might not win, but that's beside the point. But, for the sake of all of us, try to do it in a way that isn't hideous.

THE CONTENDERS:

Thoughts behind this (Click to show)
So I figure there are two elements of discord here. One is the red and wheat pocket square against an outfit that is all blue (except the shoes, which were black derbies from AE). The other is the shirt, which clearly isn't something that is intended to go with an odd coat and wool trousers.


I really had to struggle with my options to figure out how to approach this from a SWD standpoint rather than an CM. Ignoring rules in favor of aesthetics. I noticed a lot of fits that I like on this side are monochromatic, so I figured I'd try and do the same thing. Most of them tend to be gray or black, and while I could have put together something in gray, I'm not sure how comfortable I would have been in it. Blue just feels a bit more "me," so I went with that.


Blue trousers with a blue jacket are generally a big no-no on the other side, but that's (I hope) an objection based tradition rather than aesthetics. So I ignored that stodgy voice in my head and went with something that hopefully came together decently.

STANLEYVANBUREN

has pointed out that

SOME PEOPLE

who shall not be named
work M-F at places that do not appreciate sheer tee-shirts and bondage trousers, and are therefore somehow unable to come to grips with things happening on Saturdays.

AS A PERSONAL FAVOR TO STANLEYVANBUREN

the poll will go up on SUNDAY

so that there is time for people to

WEAR THINGS ON SATURDAY

and then

POST THEM HERE

tl;dr the poll goes up Sunday, post your pics from the week on Saturday
post #7 of 189

time to break out the ol' transparent silk parka

the level of my laughter is out of proportion with that which is reasonable for someone who is, pic notwithstanding, sober at this moment

What will you pair it with though ? How will you avoid synergy ?

Wear it with visible clothing, auto-clash.

Sipang, are you going to participate? If you win, you can insist that every outfit feature succulents.

 Who said I'd pair it with anything?

post #12 of 189
Consider my vote yours.


Think I might've accidentally achieved total lifestyle synergy by getting rid of all the items that would qualify for this :/
post #13 of 189
I have a plan.

Hopefully I can avoid making eyes bleed?

This should be interesting... :nest:

Same. I think the trick now is to style things in very unusual ways
