    Congratulations crusty, if congratulations be the right expression for winning this challenge! :)

    I like your potential idea of a straightforward "summer" theme; could lend itself to a variety of different looks from lightweight business to totally tropical.

    Thank you, Herr Doktor Freud - as noted above, I was unsure whether honor or dishonor was the hallmark of winning this competition, but, having won it, let me at least make a new Friday Challenge that will be fun and perhaps instructional.

    As much as I like both the idea of pin/chalk stripe, and most improved fit (though I think that "bashed" by SF or not is probably equally effective, so long as there's a big difference between "before" and "after"), they may not be suitable ideas for execution (or comfortable, all-day wearing) in much of the Northern Hemisphere, August being what it is.

    I am leaning towards "best summer look", as we are heading toward the end of the summer season, and it would be fun (and reasonably comfortable) to get everyone's take on what constitutes one's "best summer look", be it tropical wool, linen, seersucker, business or casual.

    I am happy to participate in a summer challenge, but it will be a variation on a theme since I have only one summer suit. :(

    I won't win but I'll sure as hell participate. I'll basically be re-posting a fit. Almost all my summer stuff is in shop. [​IMG]

    i like a summer fit challenge. it seems its not so easy to pick a specific summer theme, so seeing what people can do freestyle, should be cool.

    Is the summer thread up yet?! Getting a new camera on Friday or Saturday. I'll make sure to put on what I wore some time this week and snap a picture.

    I've not started the thread yet, but will soon - and it is official, the theme is "Your best summer look" - from business wear to MC casual - useful for those of us in the Northeastern US, where temp's are to return to normal summer highs this week.

    Best in a while. It's still over 100 here so it's hard to wear anything but trunks, and hard to be anywhere but the pool, but I will find a way to make a casual fit work..

    Get it up? Right here in the office? That would be so embarrassing :embar: (Keeping it up would be difficult as well, all things considered.)
