    thanks you kindly, SB. looking mightily fine your own self. deets on the shirt if you dont mind.

    sidenote, for those who thought this was going to be the same fit one after the next, i dont think SBs fit and my are even remotely similar.

    :fistbump: The shirt is from Luxire, in their dobby twill IIRC.

    Since the shirt is custom, have you considered a taller collar?

    I have considered it, but I don't have the longest of necks. As it is, the collar sits just under my adam's apple. I'm not sure a taller collar would be comfortable.

    Good stuff posted already. I tried for something texturally interesting considering the limited palate for this challenge. The suit is a gray nailhead from RLPL, wool/silk tie and cotton shirt from Armani and Santoni shoes. The tie is a very dark navy with muted dots that you can barely see from any distance. Far more muted than the closeup shot would lead you to believe.

    I agree, these fits are all interesting and varied. There are a lot of nice, tasteful touches that I never would have though of on my own, which I suppose is the point of these challenges. For example, DC's socks.

    So the plan today was to mitigate the rules of the contest with some texture - mohair sharkskin suit, herringbone cotton shirt, garza grossa tie:
