There are so many great entries, especially the 1960s-inspired ones.
I grew up in that decade, regretting that I wasn't a little older as the Mod styles of the mid-sixties seemed to me the epitome of cool. There was one particular piece of kit that I absolutely loved - the Harrington jacket. My entry pays homage to that exquisite piece of outerwear and the mid to late-sixties.
Jacket - Baracuta G9 in 'loden'
Shades - Giorgio Armani
Polo shirt and cotton v neck - Polo RL
Loafers - AE Kenwood

This is just a poor excuse for a post since I am frustrated that I cannot participate. Since I live separated from most of my wardrobe I only have clothes that I can wear on a consistent basis. If I would have access to all my clothes I would have been able to pull off a decent early skinhead look from the late 60s or a classic 2-tone 70s rude boy. But it was not meant to be...
Thank you, sir. So many designers I like were influenced by the 1970s -- I might in particular mention that Ford guy -- that the challenge for me is to not go overboard. Like, I could have worn ivory loafers and/or a shirt with big collar points laid out on top of the coat's lapels. Would have been a bit gilding the lily. I want to celebrate the era, not become a caricature of it, you know?
Edit: Here's a details / textures photo. Voting isn't open yet but I wasn't sure if we were allowed to tack on additional material, so I'm putting it in this separate post for you and anyone else who finds the fit interesting.
