    it is very well executed. nice textures and there is contrast in the hues of navy but not so much that they are fighting with each other. thats the sweet spot i think.

    Stitchy, I urge you to reconsider allowing fits not worn this week. I think it's better when folks respond to the challenge rather than scour their archives for something that works. I know there's nothing to prevent someone's doing this without saying so, but I trust fellas to do the right thing.

    you make a valid point.

    that being said, i will allow anything from 2014. i trust that people will be honest.

    oh, and if someone posts a fit that was pre 2014, i likely saw it or will find it. dont fuck my challenge up people.

    also, because i am offline from friday afternoon til saturday night, entries can me made until about 9 or 10 PM on saturday night, about that time i will put up the poll.

    Do you mean in terms of being able to do it, or being able to judge it?

    The former shouldn't be hard for any of us, but the latter might well be. Small details might make all the difference here.

    A-men brutha. I mean, what's the point if you don't play for real? I just had a couple of things to sort out with local police, got a whole load of passport pictures done for official use, then went to sign my new contract. And this, blue on blue on blue on blue on blue, is what I am wearing, start to finish, fo' real. Meaning that for as long as I stay with this new company, my picture will feature this fit. Maybe I can change it for another challenge after the first two year contract...


    Stitchy said a shirt "leaning more towards conservative", so I ditched the pink gingham I had intended for a blue micro check, and a brighter blue tie instead. Out the door, ready for a big morning...

    [​IMG]

    Brighter navy tie, very navy linen suit, blue micro-check shirt, light blue PS...

    [​IMG]

    While waiting for the passport pics, a quick full length selfie in the photo place:

    [​IMG]

    Police criminal record check, done, forms collected, quick chat with the new boss, contract signed with HR...in a three piece, bow tie, spectators and argyll socks just for the hell of it. Yep, had to get some blue in the socks and the shoes to enter into the proper spirit of the Challenge.

    [​IMG]

    And the only cufflinks I had with some blue in them.

    [​IMG]


    This, my friends, is commitment. [​IMG]

    For the record, were I wearing any more blue and white than I am, I'd be a frigging Ming vase.

    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Tie - BB
