    I wanted to wear this suit today and had reached for the OCBD, then I remembered the 'No-Pant's' rules and made sure to omit the square so as to be eligible, if the challenge changes, no problem. I certainly don't mean to force Stitchy's hand, I just wanted to wear the suit today.

    Count me in for the BDs or the striped shirts. Just let me know which it is, because I have no striped BDs. Striped BVDs are another matter, especially since this is the No Pants Challenge.

    lastly, i REALLY wanted to DTO that fit above, for this challenge, but i decided it would be more challenging to try and come with something on my own. so i will save the DTO for another day.

    obv. TTO,maomao & HC look good in their respective fits... but I still think all 3 would look even better in exactly the same outfits but with spread collars. It's not that the challenge can't be done well; of course it can. I just think it's not as optimal a look compared to the same outfit with a spread collar shirt. Of course, as FlyingMonkey points out, challenges are more about fun & interesting themes than anything else so I don't say this to be a damp squib to the challenge itself.

    yes, the main thing is to try to be challenged, try something new, and push your boundaries, but tbh, i think both TTO and mao maos fits are better with the BD collars, HCs i could see either way.

    Crap, new Luxire OCBD and new suit, but I'm out of town on vacation. I want to see Malford, HC, Shimbumi, and some other vendors jump in on these.
