The challenge is simple. Wear The Uniform better than anyone else


:






The Entrants:

Quote:


Dressing down The Uniform with an odd tie.

And very happy with suede shoes and belt I just bought specifically for FC:























Navy Hopsack
White Linen square
Lt. Blue Chambray shirt
Grey raw silk trouser
Chocolate Grenadine
Chocolate suede Adelaides



My first ever challenge entry, or WAYW pic, go easy fellas!













Edit: used a larger pic.

Well, I didn't get a chance to snap the best picture, but I guess I will do a last minute entry from today.


I suppose this is a little like the Borelli dude Gezza posted at the start of the thread - though this is a bit less tight and much more of a "Mod" take on the #uniform.

Probably won't be everyone's cup of Tetley but something a bit different I guess - and what I happened to be wearing yesterday:

This was my thought as I read the challenge
It just so happened that the previous week's contest was won with "The Uniform" but your style extends to much more beyond. I've narrowed the scope so to speak


Also, you don't need to DTO one of your previous outfits if you don't want to.

"The Uniform" does not need a tie or a pocket square so there is that ...

It would seem, from the Internet, to be a good season for shoe sales in Paris - start at Bexley, and work your way upwards :D.

I'm honestly so sad that I'm not going now, when all the sales are happening, instead of August, when the entire city is dead.

Ironically enough, I'll be in Paris for five nights this August - not the month I would pick to be in Paris, but circumstances (and cheaper hotel rates) prevailed.

"The rest is up to you (no square/tie/socks is permitted)"

Wait, so no square, ties or socks?
