Well shit, Pingson crushed this. My humble submission:

As the unofficial spokesperson for NAVY BLUE, I have to say Pingson, DC, and HF are front runners. Just my humble opinion.

My first time here, cross-posted from earlier WAYWRN Part III.  Not expecting any votes, but thought I’d dip my toes in the water. 

 

From WAYWRN:

 

“First time uploading photos.  Indeed, first time taking them.  Inspired by the Friday Navy thread, but not part of it.

Apologies in advance for the poor quality of the photos.  This is way harder than I thought.  Help needed and hereby solicited.  Also didn't have time to get the suit pressed.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, a truly sad last attempt to score extra blue points:

 

 

Notes:

A couple quick comments.   Everything here, with the exception of the shirt, I’ve had for a few years.  But this is what I wore to work yesterday, which is when I took the pictures.  Suit, tie, and pinstripes on the shirt are all navy.  Socks are predominantly a sort of blueish-grey.

 

My wardrobe’s small by SF standards, so I didn’t have a lot to draw from for a monochrome challenge.  I’m aware of the danger of having stripes in both tie and shirt, but hope that the slightly different scale, the different directions, and perhaps most importantly the different textures might make it acceptable here.  Opinions are actively solicited, of course.  Given the lack of colour variation, getting a variety of textures was the best I thought I could do, hence my choice of this particular tie (I’ve at least a half dozen navy ties of various sort, but this is the only grenadine).  The suit itself is of heavy winter weight wool (probably around 12 oz.) with a softer finish (so there’s a bit of a nap to it). 

 

Lastly, special and sincere thanks to InStiches who, as some of you may not be aware, has been kind enough to take the time to read other threads on the forum and invite people to participate in this one.  I was inspired by the Friday challenge, but would have chickened out were it not for him.  That’s very generous, and I’m sure I’m not the only forumite to appreciate it.

 

Thanks to all, and have a good weekend.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Wore this yesterday, but didn't have a chance to take a good photo that morning, so I took a crappy one with my closet mirror last night.



Sadly, my new phone, despite having a very high resolution camera, is horrible at image stabilization. So none of the close up shots turned out, but I thought I'd throw it up here anyway.

Pingson was knocking down all comers, but then tchoy stepped into the ring. Now we have a serious battle.
