    The following were (unfortunately, and after some thought) disqualified, I'm sorry gents:

    NOBD: Very peacockish, but looks mostly blue and off-white.
    coxaca: Mostly white.
    Butler: Same as NOBD, very nice "weird" shirt, but it's mostly blue.

    I don't have a camera right now (and probably won't, for the forseeable future), but I will most definitely use this as an excuse to wear my green Rugby club collar shirt later this week. Oh, and I highly recommend lavender and purple in general because it's a very versatile color. Here's hoping we see some interesting stuff. [​IMG]

    Yeah, just like all those who flat out predicted he would win the hat challenge before a picture had been posted.

    How did that work out?:D

    i meant from from the pic used in the OP. i think that fit would be hard to top.

    and i think you meant to use this emoticon: :box:

    This rule kinda defeats the purpose of the thing, no? There's plenty of flexibility already in allowing any fit worn this week.

    Agreed. It's a challenge. Not a "Look in your archived photos" thread.

    I've got one shirt that is a little crazy. I'll give it a try.

    Question on eligibility from the judge....does this work or is there too much white?

    I think we should rethink using old pics.

    ^ Using old pics sucks all the spontaneity & fun out of the contest. New pics please!! :)

    Great theme, btw. Can't decide whether to go tropical or business; weather this week would permit either, on different days...

    Alright, since no one has posted yet I take back the "old pics permitted" rule. I agree it kinda defeats the point of a challenge [​IMG]

    HansderHund, that shirt is fine - there's more green than white!

    BTW, I forgot to extend my congratulations to you for winning the last challenge. Never in doubt, but still great!

    I might not be able to compete due to the fact that I have a date with my podiatrist on Thursday [​IMG]

    I will try to put something together before then though
