Dennis Walter gave me the idea for this challenge with this post:

I think quite a few of you have at least one pin- or chalk striped suit in your wardrobes (a SC is fine, but very hard to pull off). So the challenge of the week is simple:

1. Wear a pin- or chalk striped suit/SC.
2. Post it before Saturday evening (Swedish time).
3. The outfit must have been worn this month (to get more interesting submissions).
4. All levels of formality are welcome. I'd really like to see someone attempt this in a non-CBD way.

I'm going for bossy this time.

I would be lying if I told you this picture was made last month. I will try to get a new outfit in this week with the same suit:
