Actually the deadline is until the end of the day on Sunday, so there's about 26 hours left.

I see your double breasted vest:



And I raise you a Hemrajani herringbone topcoat:


And a head of grey hair:

Nice coat! Don't forget the gray walls--props counted in last yr's trad contest... If only your eyebrows were gray.

You are correct about the grey walls in that room. Had forgotten about that. Good catch.

I had initially intended to go for some shameless pandering and wear a Kent Wang pocket square, but this is the combo I'd worn to church this morning, so I went for authenticity over pandering (did I make a mistake?). That's also the reason for the dreadful wrinkling on the trousers (YIKES!).

No excuse whatsoever for the dreadful photography.

As for the eyebrows, there is some grey in them. When the subject comes up about whether grey and brown can be paired together I often respond that in my case I have no choice.

Here's my submission. More detailed shot. The coat is RLPL with both charcoal and medium gray. Shirt is custom with gray stripes. The pocket square is unknown and a gray Glen check. The tie is Nicky with splashes of gray in the paisley. This tie is impossible for me to get a decent knot with. Pants are a light gray Borrelli.

I never knew that was a common debate. I'm a big fan of brown and grey:
edmorel's earlier post probably did the brown and gray better, though.
I like your purple and gray too, zbromer. ^^

That's a great tie, CT.

But ... black punch caps with a tweed jacket?

In my defense, black shoes are required for professional singers on Sundays...

Frustratingly bad pictures here. The tie detail doesn't come through so I've provided an isolated pic:

The deadline for entries has passed. Now our judge, yfyf, will select the finalists.
post #224 of 224
I just picked the finalists and sent them off to Kent Wang. Well done and many thanks to all who participated, it was *extremely* difficult to narrow it down to a mere 7 people but I hope people will enjoy the picks. I'll post a little review commentary when he starts the voting thread so at least people know why the finalists got picked.
