    This week's challenge is to present your best summer look, whether it be a tropical wool suit, something in linen or seersucker, or something in the range of MC casual. The point is to make it your best, in whichever mode you feel most comfortable. Go forth, and get creative, gentlemen! Poll will go up Friday evening/Saturday morning, and will be up through Monday evening: Claghorn:

    Does the fit have to be worn this week, as with previous challenges, or is any pic from this summer valid?

    I think that the fit should be from this week (the challenge has been made such that MC casual is permitted as well, so it's adjusted enough for climatic conditions, IMHO). "Summer re-runs" are suitable for TV - perhaps less so for the Friday Challenge.

    As for voting, at your request, stitchy, I'll extend voting to Monday evening.

    Excellent.

    Let me warn you, it'll be a lot of the same junk you saw in some HOF posts of mine, since I'm pretty limited. But I believe I've got an alright fit.

    May I suggest, in order to make a practical geographical compromise, that all challenges should end Saturday noon New York time EST? :bigstar:

    Good theme. And it's a warm & sunny week here, so perfect timing! I quite like both looks I've posted so far this week; it's going to be tough to pick one fit to go forward into the challenge... and there are still a couple of days to go. I love this kind of weather.

    I haz acquired some suede which should add a new twist to my cream cotton suit, so I'm in.

    Stitchy, it's Señor Crust, not Senior Crust.

    congrats!!! i had been saving up to get you some suede, so i guess that frees up some $ for me.

    apologies, i dont know how to do that fancy squiggle thing.
