This week's challenge is all about seasonal incongruence. Thanks to @Claghorn for the idea!

Could be a tweed suit with a linen tie, summer fabrics in autumnal colors, pastel flannels, etc. or just be weird and wear tweed to the beach on a nice summer day.

 

I don't have any inspiration pics for this one but you get the idea - feel free to post some inspiration pics to get us going :)

 

The cut off will be close to midnight (AEST) on Saturday June 4 and the poll will close on Monday evening.

 

The winner will need to organise the next challenge within a day of the poll closing. This is very important to keep us on track. If you don't know how to organise/organize the challenge, there are many people here who can help so don't let that dissuade you from entering. I've added some guidelines below:

Organising/Organizing A Challenge (Click to show)

You need to come up with a theme for the next challenge. This theme is entirely up to you but I'm sure there will be plenty of ideas

 

Once you do, start a new thread in the Classic Menswear forum with a title like "Friday Challenge <Date> - <Title>".

 

Make an announcement in the HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) and WAYWRN: Classic Menswear, Casual Style threads with a link to the challenge.

 

Just before voting is due to start, edit your thread to include a poll, add in the entries and choose a closing date for the poll.

 

You can see how the other challenges have been run and pretty much copy the format.

 

Reach out if you have any questions.

Here's a Winter cashmere tie with Fresco.  Seems a shame that such a uniquely textured cloth has to be reserved for Summer.
