    Wasn't there also a separate black & white one? Memory is hazy, but I'm pretty sure I wore my black & white houndstooth suit to win one challenge and it wasn't that one. I suppose I could wear either that one again, or that checked grey suit I have. But those seem too obvious choices, somehow. I'll think about what else I have, and hopefully improvise...

    In my defence:

    1) When trying to decide on this challenge, I had a look at some older ones to get an idea of what they were generally about, but did not see any of the ones mentioned.

    2) At the time of the aforementioned challenges, I was in a situation in which I did not have internet access, so also could not have seen them at the time.

    I do think that this one is a bit different to the earlier ones, and I hope that people can have a go and enjoy it, and if they've done something similar before, can try something different.

    I'm in. It was a fun theme to play around with. So, we're copying entries into this thread, right?



    Didn't particularly want to wear a suit & tie, so had to come up with something more relaxed:

    In keeping with the theme, the socks are a black/grey argyle, and I chose a black leather strap watch & a silver cisele patterned pen just to keep it going... [​IMG]

    This is going to be a hard one to vote. And I confirm that I would not have a chance to compete.

    Estitchy, I love that shirt!

    Hah - I just looked up at my husband as he was heading out to work and noticed he was taking part in the challenge without even knowing about it. Black jeans, white shirt, black/white/grey tie and a black raincoat. Didn't have time to take a picture though, and he looks pretty dishevelled compared to you guys :)
