    Does this count? :p Not ambitious to specially make a new outfit. Socks match suit pattern quite well, tie almost matches PS ;) Give it a try

    Per the instructions, the socks don't count unless it's a triple match. And no on the pocket square/tie. They are the same color, but the pocket square is polka dot and the tie is more of a neat geometric medallion i.e. not the same pattern. If you were wearing a polka dot tie, then yes.

    This is a tough challenge. I'm sure it CAN be done nicely, but the OP's examples are not it (sorry). Dunno if I will participate, but it will be fun to watch.

    Triple herringbone. This is very well done. Good job, Don.

    Does this qualify? Windowpane sportcoat, and similar pattern on the shirt.

    Quote:I find this to be an incredibly well-done entry to this challenge. I can understand how the shirt wouldn't qualify, but the coat and pants are clearly the same pattern - just different scales. No different than the triple herringbone. Am I alone in this thought?

    don - nice choice with the herringbone. no hate, but that was probably the easiest, and hence most subtle and probably tasteful way to go. and yet, i never wold have thought of that.


    i dont think so. the pants are a glen plaid, the SC is a windowpane, and the shirt is a small check (tattersall?) i guess a tattersall check is essentially a very small windowpane, but i dont think one would generally say they are the same patten. all that aside, it was a very nicely executed combo.

    i have decided on what i will do and im not sure it will work, but what the hell. gotta try it.

    I'm not crazy about it. I guess it will work.
    I think it was an excellent fit, but I don't think it fits the description of the challenge. I teach math for a living. I'm paid to be particular. A rectangle is not necessarily a square and it is most certainly not pentagon. I'm looking for a pair of squares and not just a pair of quadrilaterals.

    If it doesn't work, it doesn't work - just thought I'd give it a shot

    You gotta post the lower half, just because. Good monks can't hurt.
