    No white shirts, blue stripes or checks are a minimum. Weird. You're the second person to see a purple tie. There is nothing even remotely purple irl. I'll have to check the colours before posting next time.
    I'll allow older fits, but it's more fun if they, at least, are from August.

    Do I have to wear blue trousers too? If I use navy shoes instead? [​IMG]

    It is supposed to cool down for Friday in NYC, which will be an enticement for me to participate in thie challenge. My only concern is balancing all that blue with some other color, so that the overall effect isn't too bland (as if blandness would be possible with my fits, but still . . .).

    Here is my contribution. The POW trousers have a pale blue over-check - really!

    I never knew how hard it is to take a full body picture with a timer. The picture could have been better, but I did my best!

    The outfit looks like it maybe nice, but it's hard to see. You should crop that top photo so we can see your outfit better.

    Done! The crotch thing is all pose. But it got dark, so didn't get to redo it!

    Much better. In most photo editing programs, you should be able to adjust exposure or brightness too. It's a bit dark.

    I really want to play this game, but I don't have light blue trews to riff off a casual navy jacket. Hm...

    Pairing a navy jacket with odd navy pants seems a bit suicidal hah!

    I know that my phone sucks, but still - 6 shades of blue:
    - Navy suede Derby shoes.
    - Dark blue khakis.
    - Light blue/white gingham shirt.
    - Blue V-neck jumper.
    - Navy knitted tie.
    - Dark navy jacket.

    So much purple in this thread. :confused:

    EFV: Can I use an old pic if I promise to wear the same clothings?

    I will allow it. As I said earlier, old fits are allowed, but it's more fun if you post something fairly recent. :nodding:

    Noted, and thanks!

    The best I could possibly do with this would be with the pairings of items I did before.

    I have the perfect items for these, just bought navy G&Gs. I won't be able to wear a tie till the weekend though. Maybe I'll wear one Friday night.

    Tie is optional, but I'd really like to see at least one all blue outfit, from head to toe.

    Nice challenge! Will try to put something together later this week, but here's a waiting for gf to get ready-selfie from last weekend just to keep the thread going.. Very non sf - pants are navy and jacket is mid blue. Bring the hate!

    Thanks for allowing older fits. I added some more pics to my previous post.
