    Epsom salts, I think you probably mean? I grew up in Epsom, so residual civic affection means that I can't help correcting the mispelling! [​IMG]

    Glad you don't need surgery, and looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

    Clags got my vote so far I think! You submitting the navy or the grey? I see two fits.

    The light blue/gray was from a few months ago; I was checking that the shirt qualified. The navy above is my submission. Wearing it now (well, my chair is wearing the jacket at the moment).

    Forget the one I posted on (I think) Wednesday, this one is my submission. I think it should count as an unusual colour... [​IMG]

    Included a jacket-off pic, purely to melt your retinas:

    With the weather in NYC predicted to be both warm and humid, morphing into thunderstorms, a suit was out of the question for today.

    The rules say that yellow is acceptable, so here it is.

    Tyrwhitt shirt
    BB linen trousers
    Cole Haan loafers

    HF and UC know how to keep the forum from taking itself to seriously without resorting to dick jokes.

    I figure I'll play. Super casual Friday. Bleeding Madras, linen barleycorn, denim, suede.

    Dang. Does that mean I have to keep it clean? Oh, well, the leading progenitor of penile humor is, for the moment, going to be pre-occupied with the birth of his new child. I reminded him this morning, via PM, that he is now no longer the most immature person in his household - a sobering thought, perhaps.

    It's just gone 11pm on Friday here in Sydney (I leave you to ponder the existential dissonance of location vs. backdrop), and I'm about to go 'round the corner to drop in my favourite cocktail lounge.

    Usually your photography is much better than this, so I'm only able to guess at these colours. White balance fail on the camera?

    Doesn't your partner complain when you fail to do so?
