    And don't bring any of that OCBD mess to this party, noobs. Spread-collar, French-cuffed in luxe fabrics are the ticket to victory.

    i have dark gray trou, but sadly no check SC that works with the reddish tie. :(

    i will triple down on red though.

    Is the idea to look as good as possible given the restrictions, or to be as un-SF-approved as possible?

    The challenge of the Challenge is to figure out what you think will appeal most to the voters.
