    In this challenge let's open it up. It's just about wearing black and white, all or part. Anything to be considered by the voting masses though a tie is of course encouraged though not obligatory...

    The choice is yours of course, some examples shown above...

    Challenge details: Submissions must be posted by 1700hrs GMT Saturday 13th January 2018. All submissions are to have been worn in 2018. The poll will go up directly on Saturday evening GMT and close on Monday 15th January 2018. For the summary post, I will use only one picture per entrant and will therefore choose your first offering.

    In conclusion the winner shall receive a most generous prize donated by Styleforum affiliate :worship: @House of KYDOS - who offer the winner a choice of one of their new 3 fold ties!

    Good luck!

    As this is likely to be the only time I'll be so monochromatic in 2018, I'll throw this fit into the ring...

    Excellent, always good to start with the bar high!

    You double sixed me there, I wondered if you'd go with one of your exemplary black tie rigs...

    Thanks! It didn't occur to me to go with black tie as I haven't worn my black dinner jacket in months. But as the fit doesn't have to be entirely black and white, I guess I could! Are multiple entries allowed?

    It's always nice to see good evening wear, and on SF the evening wear is more often good than not. Even though I wore a tuxedo for New Year's Eve I'll post something different. A black knit tie with a white shirt... in black and white (Changed my mind. Looks better in color).

    Mainly making up the numbers since I think @sebastian mcfox is going to walk away with this fairly easy. Chalkstriped flannel and a tweed tie. In B&W but also a pic in colour so you can see that I haven't hidden any colours anywhere!
