    Don -

    Well done, sir. Very well done. Nice progression on fits, by the way. Every time it seems to get better.

    I think the premise of this challenge is this..

    Break the rules badly. But look good doing it. Dons fit is breaking the rules from what I can tell.
    1. 3 herringbone
    2. Patterned trouser and jacket

    But he looks damn good doing it.

    AAS has the same style like 3-4 times. That's not breaking the rule, that's shattering it. But it looks great, in its own way and I think would hold up against the majority of the SF members.

    That said, I don't have the necessary garments to break the rules and still look good. I have houndstooth trousers, socks and sport coat, and herringbone shirt/ties, but I'm not sure it'd hold up well. Not against AAS, Don and Betel.

    Maybe the object for you is to win. I thought this was just for fun. Is there a trophy or something I don't know about? Are reputations at stake?

    The trophy is the right to the next challenge.

    If I ever win, my challenge is "shorts with OTC socks."

    Boom. I will win again, being the only contender.

    nah, im just a stupidly competitive person by nature. it is for fun.

    but i think whats its REALLY for, at least for me, is to encourage people to try out a fit or combo that they would not have thought of otherwise. its good to broaden the horizons of what we can do with our wardrobes and what we are willing to try out in a fit.

    AS, I am so disappointed. No all-black watch fit? Harrumph.

    My entry, modified from a previous outfit, taken under the extreme duress of a wife calling you an idiot in a language you don't understand for taking pictures of what you plan on wearing the next day.

    Holy fuck...I just read what I just wrote. ....folks.....some of us may have some serious issues.

    Anyway, double pattern inversion bombshell

    My attempt. If I'm honest, I would not have gone with this square but for the challenge. So in that sense it seemed a bit forced. But otherwise, I think the glenplaid shirt/jacket/square PLUS the navy/pale blue striped tie/socks should qualify me. [​IMG]

    Nice one. Double stripe and triple glen plaid? Is the shirt glen plaid? Hard to tell. I like it either way. And the shoes are utterly amazing.
