    Ok, I figured this wouldn't be easy, but I loved the jacket so much I had to buy it. (I really want a blackwatch shawl collar DJ too!)

    Put my navy grenadine tie up against it, and my eyes bled a little.

    I'll scavenge the closets, put some looks together, and post pictures.

    I am determined to not have this jacket relegated to light jeans and white OCBD duty.

    Thanks for the feedback so far.

    Listen, this is a jacket you can really do a lot with. Just understand the principles and use some imagination. It is not at all and ugly pattern for a jacket.

    Would navy or hunter pants be disqualified for being matchy? Yellow would be unseasonal. I don't think I could bring myself to wear any shade of brown or tan.

    Meh, I'll figure something out, I'm a resourceful SOB.

    Remember, you are looking for contrast here. Navy would be too dark here, hunter green is just way too much green. It would start to look costumey. If you don't like brown then stick with mid gray. You can't go wrong.

    Well, it looks like AAS ran away with this one. What do you say AAS? Would you like to choose the next two contestants for next week, or would you like to defer back to me?

    I can do it, but I'm not sure what my time frame will be.

    No worries. This is a pretty informal thing anyway. I think we would prefer, however, if it was as close to Tuesday as possible, so that it wont divide people's attentions from the Friday Challenge. Anyway, have fun! Can't wait to see who you pick.
