    Your tongue is certainly in your cheek with your comment on contributing, boychik - it's good that you're a good practicing Jew, or you'd be on here 24/7/365 - all stitchy, all the time. :)

    Thank you, BTW, for the compliment.

    This was taken this week.................. but unfortunately in 2010.

    I don't think I have pink, after giving away all my non MFM shirts.

    Some seriously good entries; good job lads. o/o is my fave so far, but I'm impressed with the average standard this week. Actually, that raises another point I've been meaning to make: I think the average contestant standard is higher in this run of challenges than it was when it was in its first incarnation. There were always some excellent entries each week back then, but I do feel that as a field, the standard is a bit higher these days. Given the frequent laments about the quality of the board, I find that an interesting observation. Either that frequently-made comparison is inaccurate, or the current membership is simply a bit more willing to participate in these themed events (whereas the really good dressers back then didn't play), thus pushing up the apparent average. Maybe a bit of both columns, perhaps.



    I prefer my fit today to the one I posted yesterday so can we count this one for the contest please, sb?

    Any extra point inducing flower color co-ordinating is purely coincidental :hide:

    Napoli su Misura tobacco linen 3 piece with slipped waistcoat and Thomas Mason shirting by NSM, Dior tie and New & Lingwood PS :bigstar:

    Ironically, I was thinking of Butler's photos when I took this. His landscaping has mine beat, but not for long...

    Truly, in spite of the white washed pic, the shirt is pink. This cherished baseball has Charlie "Paw-Paw" Maxwell's autograh. He is now 86 and was at yesterday's Tigers game. My rosebush did look good until two heavy rainfalls did their damage.

    So far, O/O, Crusty, Butler, Clarinetplayer--and Timotune. For the most part, the old(er) guys have it?

    The only pink shirt I have with me; I think it "resolves to solid" sufficiently. An unused option for the "four pattern challenge"; I therefore dedicate this fit to TTO!

    (SB, sorry the PS is a little badly behaved..please forgive me)

    Sunglasses recommended for my red gingham that turns near-nuclear pink from a few feet away. If it's too much on the side of red and not pink then I'll gladly be DQ'd.

    Burgundy knit tie, grey linen soot, and a swing and a miss with a cream knit belt. Is it next week yet?
