    My entry, modified from a previous outfit, taken under the extreme duress of a wife calling you an idiot in a language you don't understand for taking pictures of what you plan on wearing the next day.

    Holy fuck...I just read what I just wrote. ....folks.....some of us may have some serious issues.

    Anyway, double pattern inversion bombshell

    My attempt. If I'm honest, I would not have gone with this square but for the challenge. So in that sense it seemed a bit forced. But otherwise, I think the glenplaid shirt/jacket/square PLUS the navy/pale blue striped tie/socks should qualify me. [​IMG]

    Nice one. Double stripe and triple glen plaid? Is the shirt glen plaid? Hard to tell. I like it either way. And the shoes are utterly amazing.

    Now that you mention it and I look closer, it's not a true glenplaid, just windowpane with some, I dunno, micro houndstooth in the field. Certainly looks glenplaid when you first glance at it from a distance. So call it dub plaid/trip windopane, dub stripe.

    nice fit clags.

    i like the use of using a PS as a matching pattern. its small and unobtrusive enough that i think it can still be tasteful. sucks for me lol.

    Tried out a few combinations for the challenge but didn't really like any of them so instead settled for a partial match with the (reddish) checks on both the shirt & jacket. Up to AAS whether it's a close enough similarity to qualify... and to the wider audience whether it hews closely enough to the rules to garner any votes! [​IMG]

    nice additions, guys!

    i was hoping that AAS was going to go with gingham. when he didnt, i thought id go ahead and combine the gingham with the game match, just for fun of course! :)

    also, in honor of the challenge i am trying a new pose.

    Close-ups on shirt and tie to prove there are stripes and give a better sense of the color.
