    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.
