    There is a lot of potential in this.

    Would love to participate, but my imagination is lacking.

    I would love to as well, but I'm wearing seersucker this weekend. Nothing subtle about that. Don't be afraid to let it go for another couple days to get more people, though.

    You have my vote if you integrate a David Lynch reference into an outfit.

    I was not thinking of entering this time, but looking back over the last two weeks I found this outfit that I posted on WAYWRN and which is perhaps oddish. I am combining two paisley patterns, hopefully in a subtle way - the John Comfort tie has a neat, small pattern and the Etro square a very much bolder one. I offer them here with some different / edited pics:

    Although I liked Clags' outfit most, Bienluienapris' doily hank was really the only subtly odd note for me.

    1...2...3 NOT IT!

    SYCSYC, ball is in your court. Though I think it might be nice to have a bit of a break until fall weather begins to appear.
