    Break the rules, wheather they are ancient or SF idiosyncrasies - not just for the sake of breaking, but to actually make it work!

    Entry closes at GMT on Saturday. Poll closes on Monday at noon . Multiple votes will be allowed. I don't care when the fit was worn.

    Finally, I highly encourage a full body shot as well as detail shot . :bigstar:


    For inspiration (sorry, it's my own) 2 rules broken; monocromatic and grey SC

    Sorry for the bad pictures... night or work... Rules brocken : check on check, combining different type of green (shoes and suit) and wearing a summer tie with an autumn/winter fit.

    According to Alan Flusser's opinions, correctly mixing patterns could be categorize somehow like this:
    - No mixing: beginners only
    - Two patterns: knowing man level
    - Three patterns: advanced sartorial level
    - Four patterns: iconic stars of pattern matching...

    So, does mixing 5-6 patterns in the same outfit make me break the rule? If not, these socks do by themselves for sure...

    On Claghorn's urging, I present to you: not a rule broken per se, but modification on convention, the coat 3 piece.

    First got this idea where people talked about wearing a coat but not a jacket to work because of indoor heating in some places, and some people choosing to wear a waistcoat in those situations to keep up some formality (so one can still wear a tie, cover up button area and break between trousers and shirt). So then I thought, why not just wear a three piece where the jacket is coat instead? And I love trenchcoats, so I comissioned this from Luxire, with the benefit being that all the pieces are entirely wearable on their own.

    Fabric is Dugdale Caldonaire Tweed. Had them make me a hood for the drizzles, too.

    Buttoned up:

    With hood up, kinda ugly, but hey, function.

    Featuring gloves and bag:

    With hood attached: the collar lifts up a little, slightly melodramatic I think.

    I like it, @Isolation. A very nice, innovative idea.

    Pants fit better than a lot of your others. Whatever they did, keep having them do it.

    I assume it's just that the fabric drapes better, but I'll have a look into it. :)
