    I believe this should qualify?

    I was going to wear dark green cords with it, but then figured, sod it and go red.

    YES!!!!

    lol shugz pwning the thread.

    clags - great compendium, maybe add it to NOBDs list of all the previous challenges?

    also, i am honored that you used one of my pics in your example list! the shirt in that pic does eventually kind of dissolve to a solid blue. sometimes darker, sometimes lighter, depending on lighting.

    see here:

    and you are right, most organic fits do not fall into the rules here. it needs to be very intentional.

    Coxsackie - wow. damn, son!

    Clags: What's the ruling on these? I thought the rule was no brown cap toes. Is it all brown shoes? Because that's much harder. [​IMG]

    Only captoes. Those are in.

    Shugz, way to own the thread. I find myself really wanting a custom title ("History's Greatest Villain")

    If it's brown and it's captoe, it's out. Boots or no. Brown non-captoe is fine. Non-brown captoe is fine. Just not a combination of the two.

    If it is black and it is captoe, it is out. If it is brown and it is captoe, it is out. All other combinations of colors and toe types are welcome.

    What about a cap toe with semi-broguing, like the AE Strand?
    [​IMG]

    Or if it is suede?

    If it's brown and has a captoe it's out. Whole cut, wingtips, moctoes are available to you in any color you desire.

    Reply spoilered so as not to lower the tone of this thread any more than it already has been,

    I think that he's doing his golden shower nooner gig, in the rubber chaps (so much more practical than leather for such things, hence his sale to rudals). He'll get back to you after we hose him down.
