I think that would be a little too narcissistic. revolve.gif Maybe a dress like EFV challenge though.

I remember a few years ago there was a brand trying to make cummerbunds casual everyday wear. I haven't heard from them in a while.

Congrats, AAS.

 

Well, if a colored tie challenge is wanted, there was some recent discussion on GNAT about purple being a challenging color generally.

 

Cheers,

Nice.

Cheers,

By project, do you mean this outfit or the whole black watch thing in general.  For the outfit, I started with the shirt.  In general, freshman year of high school I bought a dope black watch Tommy Hilfiger hat.  It was stolen during gym that winter. Maybe I never got over it and am over compensating.  I just think it's the coolest pattern ever. 

Stubbs and wooton had some...had a very thin red line in them though...and I thought I wasn't ever going to find someone who likes blackwatch more than I do...I was way wrong.

Nice one, AAS. Won´t be playing this time, being Roycru isn´t easy and many, oh so many lost souls will fail and be doomed.

It's just for fun. No doom involved. I think dressing like Roycru is the easiest thing to do. Trad/ivy looks aren't hard.

That might be true for some, yet not for all probably :-)

I believe I cast the deciding vote for AAS. Good entries overall, but closer than I thought it would be.
