    A casual entry, though I realize the jeans may disqualify me. Out for dinner last night. No name, too small brown "feathersuede" jacket, J Crew light brown merino wool sweater, Brooks Bros white OCBD, Nudie Average Joe's, Florsheim wingtips, J Crew handtooled western belt, brown heather socks, Kent Wang Pucci-inspired handkerchief. Tried a pointed fold, but tamed it down in to a square later.

    BIG fan of the Kent Wang Pucci-inspired handkerchief - mental note to one self to get PS from KW next time!

    The contest does have one iron rule: to qualify, entries have to be worn.

    Hopefully my colorblindness hasn't led me astray.

    Thanks, Suiting. It's my odd duck jacket. It's from Polo, but the model name is "Canvas." I've never seen another like it. A shame, as I really dig it.

    Couple more from the archives:

    Very interesting outfit! I love the unique color of your knit tie. My only gripe with you is going to be the white shoelaces. Why? Also excellent pocket square!

    I was afraid the laces looked white in the pic. They're actually beige/cream.

    The pocket square is something I cobbled together myself. You can find some wonderful things at the fabric store for 99 cents.

    Well put together and frugal, very admirable.

    Errr, do you think it's an optical illusion or that I decided to Photoshop it to look even bigger?



    Do you say that because of the big head, the ensemble, or the anvil that's about to fall on me?



    I reckon a slightly fuller trouser leg cut might balance things a little better.

    Very, very nice Doc. All of it...and especially the square.

    PS. The laces look beige on my monitor...kinda cool touch IMHO.
