    @DiplomaticTies nice idea for the challenge. One question though - since PS is optional, can it have a subtle pattern?

    I would say no. If its extremely subtle and not really visible, then maybe...

    Very interesting challenge. Fortunately I'm still in my underwear.

    Hm, annoying that I did not find that when I searched. Well, nothing new under the sun I guess. Great entry last time, hope you return for this one too.

    Not an entry, since this is an old fit, but perhaps some inspiration for someone.

    Great challenge - a personal one, at that. I definitely don´t own too many non-patterned items...

    Great fit and an unusual jacket. I like the colour and very creative with flaps on a patch pocket. I think it works.

    This is a vintage brown "blazer". It originally came with brass buttons which I replaced with smoked MoP. It has become one of my favorites. I have another just like it with brown MoP buttons from Kent Wang.

    @DiplomaticTies a question for the Challenge Master:

    Out of curiosity, can corduroy count as solid for current purposes, or do the ribs ipso facto make it a patterned fabric?

    Cheers,

    Ac
