    The white balance veers very much toward yellow due to lighting (fluorescent bulbs) - usually it isn't this bad, but with a yellow shirt, everything came out yellow. Trousers are navy blue, shoes are black.


    I meant the jokes, silly man.

    Only able to guess at the real colours, and my photo-editing skills are low-level amateur at the best of times, but here's a rough & ready correction. Maybe someone who actually knows how to do this stuff would be kind enough to fix it properly instead.

    I like this a fair bit. Perhaps lighter blue jeans (heresy, I know) would blend better?

    Damn you Tril! I try my first Tril-inspired fit and you post same shirt/tie combo: [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] SC is PRL Shirt is RLPL Tie is unknown knit wool Square is unknown linen Trou are Oxxford Socks are Pantherella Shoes are Alden
    So I go with my backup and .. MOTHER! Same shirt color Again?? [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] SC is nobody impressive ("Racing Green" I think?), linen Shirt is Charles Tyrwhitt Tie is PRL wool Square is unnamed, made in Italy, wool/silk blend Trou are Borrelli Socks are Pantherella Shoes are To Boot New York
    DISCLAIMER: I promise, I'm not copying you. Also, sorry about the lighting and pic quality. With all the rain here in NY, the lighting was pretty tragic.

    GMMcL, I'm assuming the seersucker with green shirt is the actual entry? The other one looks pink

    Um, yes. I just reread the rules and realized pink (or raspberry, presumably) is a FAIL. :embar:

    I feel the shirt hanging on your porch bench has the same unifying effect a pocket square would.

    srs.

    during summer time with kids at camp and going swimming all the time and all that stuff, my porch is usually a disaster zone.
