Gentlemen, you are cordially invited to take part in this week's FC!

THE GREEN TIE CHALLENGE!

Is a green tie one of your top 10 staples?

In this Green Tie Challenge let's demonstrate, or otherwise, the versatility and range of any shade of green tie. You will wear a suit, SC or odd-jacket combination and a green tie of course (!) is obligatory.

Challenge details:

Submissions must be posted by 1800hrs GMT Saturday 20th February 2016. All submissions are to have been worn week beginning 14th February 2016. The poll will go up directly on Saturday evening GMT and close on Monday 22nd February 2016.

Good luck!

@Anden




@timotune




@Claghorn




@Pliny




Thanks in advance to our esteemed friends ^ for the inspiration pics (Last FC Green Tie Challenge, thanks @EFV) demonstrating a huge range from which to choose.

YOUR ENTRANTS

Trousers - Levi´s
Shoes - C&J Belgrave in Polo Suede

Cool.

Excellent choice, Cleav!  (And I'm not sure if there's precedent, but I think if you simply re-entered last week's winning fit, you might win by a landslide).  

 

What's the over/under on Panta count in this challenge?

Ha, modesty forbids old friend! I'll just have to try a different one, if I get the time...

Could be a few Pantas make their bow here, I'd forgotten that. Good shout nod[1].gif
