    This is pretty crazy even by my standards. Purple tie and socks with green pants. [​IMG] Looks kinda familiar though... I love the fit of the pants. These seem slimmer than your suit pants. I think it looks better on you.

    I wasn't going to upload this, but Sugarbutch's last fit encouraged me.

    Quick shot before going out.

    This is a masterpiece.

    It's not just that each item (except the shirt) is fugly in its own right it's that together they're, somehow, even worse.

    If only the worth of a challenge were measured by the deviance of its participants.

    SB delivering the sartorial equivalent of a nuclear strike. Including the radioactive fallout. [​IMG]

    Butler - no purple at all? The sumptuary laws no longer exist, you know! [​IMG]

    Betelgeuse - love the jacket!

    Ouch!! I used to like you!

    (I think ditching trousers is more Derek's department than mine.)

    close. saks off 5th! i wore it just for you. its much less offensive when its seen as a whole, and from a few feet away. regardless, i knew it was right up your alley.

    Regarding SB's disaster of a fit, I was thinking that a navy linen SC and a different shade of green pant might have saved it... But then it wouldn't be the masterpiece that it is...Never mind.

    Canta, I will have you know that every item here is lovely on its own. It's not their fault that I did this. FWIW, the green is closest to that shown in the shoe shot. The full-length is glowing! That's what I get for editing pics on a tiny screen. Clags, I will leave it up to you to choose which of my fits should be entered in the challenge.
    Man, these pants are waaaaaaay baggier than any of my suit pants.
