    Good morning gentlemen. Your mission, if you chose to accept it, involves the recovery of a stolen item designated "Colour." You may wear any colours, but it is essential that you wear a dark suit. As always should any member be caught in a trainwreck or otherwise, the Administrator will disavow all knowledge of your actions. And please gentlemen, the next time you post a sockless picture please have the decency to spoiler it. This message will probably self-destruct in a few days.


    Challenge Details:
    Entries must be posted by midnight GMT on Saturday. The poll will go up some time on Sunday, and will close at midnight GMT on Monday.

    All submissions are to have been worn this week. ​

    So, just to be sure. Dark suit + 1 colourful item? No SC + trousers?

    The only real requirement is the dark suit. No limit on the number of colorful items.

    Interesting challenge but not many takers yet...

    My own mission on Monday morning (before this FC was put up) was to recover a colourful Hermes tie from the back of my wardrobe. I also happened to team it with a dark suit. Odder still, I decided to record the fit – just for my own amusement really and because I rarely wear the tie. So, FWIW I'll post it here later.

    I hope this qualifies as a dark suit - the colorful item is the tie, in case you should have missed it.
