    You looked fabulous as usual. Dissension is the ultimate compliment.

    I have had all kinds of hangups about whether you can wear X with Y, this with that, etc. etc. Those hangups are generally rooted in my understanding of what is traditionally acceptable. One of those hangups was wearing a tie with jeans.

    Then I went to Italy and saw the most stylish dudes ever doing it and looking awesome. And I'm not talking about the average dudes, but legitimately stylish men with clear personal style. There were also poorly dressed Italian dudes, and probably a lot wearing a tie with jeans, but I didn't notice them because the dudes doing it well are the ones who caught my attention. Anyway. Goes to show that the rules can and should inform what you do, but can't be elevated above looking great.

    Awesome challenge, though tough to vote (some fits looked really good but didn't seem to really be casual fits). Thanks to whoever kindly voted for me in spite of my awful photography and absence of a full length shot. Based on the votes thus far, I think Formosa should be an honorary co-winner.

    Congratulations Mcfox. A well deserved win. It's difficult to pull off the suit and t-shirt look without looking like Miami Vice era Don Johnson but you managed!

    I look forward to McFox's use of that suit with a collared shirt.

    Thanks all for the votes and kind remarks! I'm a bit surprised I can out on top. Does that mean I get to figure out the next challenge? Any ideas?

    #Menswear At least one item has to be a current or previous item in the #menswear-world. Think casentino, dubmunks etc.

    Grandpa-style. Dress like an older relative.

    Purple. One or more items in purple.

    FU-jacket. No explanation needed.

    Suede kicks.

    Anden's idea sounds like something I'd like to watch, and probably take part in.

    Purple? That's easy. Why not pink, but no pink shirts allowed? :)

    I do like the FU jacket idea, although I'd wait for slightly warmer weather. Madras and all...

    A lot has been said about denim, however I am not sure if it has been proposed before. I would like to see denim pulled off correctly with a coat and tie (if possible).

    If it's purple, I wore purple yesterday.

    So I hope it's purple.

    In the 90s today, so I'm in linen shorts and a polo.
