    Calm down, boychik. Those who insist on yelling in their threads get no hamantaschen or rugelach for their afternoon snack. :satisfied:

    Bummer, I'm confined to bed with a fever. Otherwise I believe I could have been a decent contender in this challenge.

    My entry is inspired by Rudals self-professed limitations of preferring navy/navy looks and needing outfits that work in a very conservative office, but that he also wanted something a bit more interesting than all solids. This is a look that would sail through any conservative setting in the world, but perhaps especially so here in the UK where this kind of microcheck and old-school tie in rep fabric remain, if not common then at least comfortably familiar to most. The shirt sleeves are slightly long, but that's the only non-conservative aspect of the look.

    I see o/o also went down the route of using a similar type of tie, and shirt. Your mind to my mind, clearly! [​IMG]
