    Title says it all, this week we're DTO:ing an outfit by @Claghorn. I.e. Let yourself be inspired by an outfit that he has posted, either here or on his Instagram. I chose Clags as a subject, since he's got a wide variety of outfits, but also posts a lot of solids, which I suppose a lot of us can try to simulate with stuff from our own wardrobes. Rules: 1. Post the Claghorn outfit that inspired you next to your own. 2. Your outfit has to have been worn this week or the week before. 3. Post before Saturday evening (I'm going by CET here). 4. Claghorn can DTO any of his old outfits, but has to wear the challenge outfit this, or last week. 5. You don't have to copy the outfit, just be inspired by it. Examples:

    Since I actually had a jacket made that was inspired by Clags' style, I am in.

    Clagish elements: Jacket pattern (Incidentally the fabric in the first inspiration pic and this jacket are both from Holland and Sherry), OCBD spread collar, fiery PS, knit tie, suede captoes (although no shoes at all may have been more appropriate). Since I can't DL photos from instagram here are the links to the two pics that inspired this fit: http://instagram.com/p/3PC5LEMgZR/, http://instagram.com/p/27Bodjsgbr/

    Caustic Man, that's not an Oxford Cloth Button Down. Also is 'OCBD spread collar' not an oxymoron?

    I know it's not. I added the superfluous BD out of habit.

    These were the kind of pictures I wanted to give as examples, but I couldn't find it in your SF albums.

    I also wear a surprising amount of windowpane given my sensibilities
