Not to steal TTO's thunder in starting this thread, but it was decided that, in honor of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, that the Friday Challenge will be the Blue and Green challenge.

The basic premise is to put together a fit that includes blue and green.

Extra sprezz for military-inspired attire and/or regimental ties (especially in the challenge's color scheme).

Double extra sprezz for integrating vintage military attire or vintage regimental tie into your fit.

Negative sprezz for weaponry - we are at peace now!

I didn't state an end time for the challenge, so my apologies if anyone wanted to participate before I set the poll. The poll expires at midnight (GMT) Tuesday.

I'm not expecting to get many votes as I'm up against some really stellar ensembles from several other members, but at least it ups the total number to choose from.










Serengeti - Gant - Hackett - Déclic - Silk ascot from a Shanghai market stall -  Alexander Olch - SuitSupply - Carmina
