    The beauty of democracy is that it liberates authority from moral responsibility.

    Now I'm sort of curious whether someone who posts something clearly not purple would garner any votes.

    I've got like six active socks (JapanAlex, Pranav Gautam, etc. etc.] so I'm looking at seven votes right there.

    Which, I believe, would have put me ahead of mrjester last week.

    I shot a cowboy action match the other day in which I won first place. No shame in the fact that I was the only one shooting in my category that day [​IMG]. In an empty field, you gotta play to win.

    Actually, maybe he will.

    That's darn close to burgundy in my book, but you're the judge.....
    :lol:
    The good thing is I've only got one, so that makes it an easy choice. The bad thing is that it is my only jacquard tie.... :fu:

    Funny, I happened to wear a lilac tie today purely by happenstance. I'll probably think of something else before Friday, but it's good to have an early banker available in case I don't feel inspired later in the week. Interesting theme, Clags.

    My entry, a day early, as I'll be casual tomorrow, in anticipation of getting on a plane for several hours, heading west to Vancouver.

    Note that the footwear in this picture was expressly chosen at the suggestion of Claghorn.

    Off My Rack, you might want to consider taking another picture or adjusting the color balance of that one so that it actually looks like it's purple.

    Will try to take another close-up shot showing the shirt, tie and jacket later. The shirt is a sky blue and white bengal stripe.
