    Here's what I would have posted were it not for the prohibition on "re-runs:"

    @Mr Cucumber: deets on the shoes, please!

    I like the entries so far. I was going to participate, but it has been very cold this week in Mexico... [​IMG]

    My photography continues to be pretty bad. Not a great camera in my phone and nobody to take pictures of me. Here goes:

    Light navy linen blazer from Hemrajani, purple so-called Prince of Wales purple check shirt from Tyrwhitt, cotton / linen khakis from Lands End, Crockett & Jones monkstraps in chestnut.

    My linen, cotton khaki and seersucker entries got one (sympathy?) vote apiece in previous challenges, so here goes with the tropical wool mohair sharkskin:

    Nicely done Stitch.

    Thank you again, UC, for extending it through the weekend.

    Uh-oh. I misread. I'll have to buckle down tonight and get them done.

    Could have used a pressing, but c'est la vie.

    I think it looks fine without the pressing.
