Thank you kindly, sir. I can totally see your point about the pocket square. By my standards it's actually pretty tame and I am at the conservative end of the African diaspora aesthetic around here. Here's a friend of mine in his shop in Central Harlem:



I can recall four times in the last 25 years that I've worn a tie:

  1. Immigration court
  2. A funeral
  3. A rather stuffy wedding
  4. Another funeral

So I do actually own one but I think it might be characterized around here as "just barely acceptable" (at best).

I really dig this idea for the challenge! This is the first I've entered, I think. Hopefully Air Force blue will get a pass

 

 

And not the greatest photo, but I liked all the detail.

Last day to enter! Poal goes up tomorrow at noon ET.

Is there a standard rule for how long voting should remain open?

The sudden bout of cold weather doused my plans for seersucker and navy trousers but the entrants are very god indeed. I'll be voting for quite a few again.

I realized too late I was wearing a tie so I'm not sure it will be accepted, but if it's, trouser is an orphan one from a navy suit made by Fabio Sodano, SC is from Ermenegildo Zegna and loafers from John Lobb



(And I'm taking the picture in an Uniqlo store, where I usually buy my underwear)

Sorry man, great jacket and I am a big fan of Uniqlo, but rulez is rulez.

This is my fault. Alex posted that great fit in WAYWRN, I suggested he should enter it into the challenge, and of course he came in here and crushed us all like bugs. Mea f**king culpa.

Congrats @AlexRamius! You killed it.

If you don't already have an idea for the next challenge, recent events suggest we might want to do something with purple?

Cheers!

Oh my gosh, it' sur wonderful! I don't believe it!
I should have wroten a speech!

I would like to thank CruzAzul for his foolish mistake, my mum, who continues to pay my rent even if i still refuse to wear clothes she likes (Rick Owens and Yoji Yamamoyo are gods for her) and my grandfather who force-fed me with 40's and 50's movies during my childhood.
