Some superb entries in this week's contest. Some rather clashing ones too, but I applaud the ideas! Good stuff, everyone.

 

 

 

Friday Challenge. I was hoping to put together something interesting this morning, but I overslept and so had to get ready quickly, so went straight into zero-thought, wear-what-works mode. Meh, it's OK but very dull. Sorry, stitchy! At least there are some elephants on the square to brighten things up.

White shirt, white PS, black shoes.

If only the ties were 9 cm wide cloud.gif

Nice, didn't know about that. Too expensive for my taste though, you could get a similar tie bespoke from Hober for about a third the price. Even with shipping and if I would happen to get docked with import charges it would still be less than half the price. Too bad, since I would like to support local makers.....

@Cleav is looking like the guy to beat this week
post #82 of 196
Only true glen plaid I have...sea foam green suit. More of a spring/Summer suit but c'est la vie.

My major concern is the PS...it's darker navy then the tie but maybe I shouldn't have gone with a navy PS in the first place.

Still trying to figure out a way to get better pics.
