    Well that's the problem innit. Everyone has an unusually coloured shirt. Nobody has the perfect jacket to match it.

    Impressed that you actually went out and acquired one.

    I've actually been searching for an unstructured summer blazer for months. Just happened to find one that fits today... rather short and trendy, but I liked how it looked on me.

    I have pants and a jacket to go with the colorful shirt, but I'm stuck on the tie selection. I think that's really the biggest challenge, or at least for me it is anyways, to make it work with the tie and still look alright.

    I think that SB really succeeded in that area, and to me that is the most impressive part of the fit.

    I know it's not necessary, but I'm not looking for a layup here. ;)

    Something like that. :)

    I need to check edmorels thread for combo ideas, as my shirt choice would not be a solid.

    That guy needs a real dedicated thread. Which one do you browse?

    And did you get the goods yet?!

    Don't think this will be the fit I choose to enter for the challenge (EDIT: definitely not), as I have something else potentially in mind, but it was what I wore today and it has a (partly) green shirt, so in the interest of populating the thread:

    Doc, that's one of your better applications of that shirt that I hate. :)

    Acute, that's a nice collar.

    The shirt appears white in the wide frame photo so I'll refrain from looking at the closeup and will like that fit.

    mint seems to be the color of choice for this challenge.

    Not for me, baby. Not for me.

    Then again, I may have to post mine as a casual fit.

    And with such different results...

    Can't say I've considered wearing a green dress shirt so haven't thought about what it goes with but this challenge has taught me that blue blazer / tan trousers seems like the only (or one of very few) workable options for a green shirt.

    Grey glen plaid, not so much.

    Yes, indeed... And my new blue jacket got badly stained on my commute home... might not be able to participate after all. [​IMG]
