    Clags, can I use this shoes for the Challenge? I think navy shoes mightnot go so well with the outfit.

    What is crazier, brown ostrich loafers of grey suede boots? I also have other suede and wingtip options but am unsure which ones are more "unstapled". Thoughts? (edit, the last boot I actually have in grey suede not blue but I couldn't find a picture).

    Here's my entry. I hope the photos are decent enough. It's raining hard outside, so the lighting won't be any better.

    Here is my super struggle bathroom selfie train wreck
    This was crazy hard for me because I hate pattern and pretty much only own solid staples

    Great fit.

    I had that shirt, it is lilac and tough to iron.

    Of course you want the superlative title, but if anyone asks me, I will advocate for "The Hard 3" because I'm a jerk.

    As for Caustic Man's upstart candidacy, ask yourself this: Do you want proven leadership or a glorified intern who will be learning on the job?

    +1. one does not get the title they want. it must never be something you would choose.

    As I read through the pages I figured that out. I might bust out my blue cordaroys [​IMG].... Now I actually wonder if any of my sportcoats would go with them.
