Odd colored challenge! Because there is too much blue, brown, and gray around here (see what I did there?)

iGent challenge! Because let's embrace what we are.

Beard Challenge! Because, fuck yeah, facial hair.

Politician challenge! Replicate or improve upon an outfit worn by a politician. Does not have to be part of the current election cycle. But yes, I fully expect @in stitches to dress like Hillary.

The Unorthodox Icon Challenge! Mimic a style icon breaking some "rule."

Accessory challenge! Incorporate a non-standard WAYWRN accessory.

  1. "The day I quit my job"
  2. "Best dressed dad at the BBQ"
  3. "Running for President."
  4. "Instagram #menswear expert"

Also, and maybe this isn't the place for it since you also posted in WAYWRN, but for discussion sake I thought the brown of your pants was a little too dark to play nicely with the the blue of the jacket. But I may be alone there and congrats all the same! smile.gif

 

Murls suggestion for a "casual element" challenge is very good, but I do hope that we can come back to some of these proposals by Clags and JC. The politician challenge or the best dressed dad at the BBQ are both excellent suggestions, I already have some ideas, just think of the possibilities...
