    also, if anyone really wants to post up sans pants, with or without underpants, you may, and you will be included in the poal.

    I think I did my one tie+BD collar look per year a little while ago; I think my immune system would rebel against another one so soon thereafter. [​IMG]

    Oh, I'll probably play along, the challenges are always fun... but I can't promise to actually keep the tie on (and the square absent) after the photos are taken! :)

    In fact, it might be interesting to post both variants up (although of course I do understand that only the "no pants"-approved version would go into the poll!)

    Stick to your guns, Stitchy. I'm out, though. I don't own a single BD.

    I entirely agree with your explicit and implicit main points - the suit has to be casual and the shirt will likely have to be bespoke.

    I think you're being a little too restrictive in terms of suiting. A mottled flannel could work. On the other end of the temperature spectrum, a cotton, linen (I have to admit even though I don't like linen suits) or Solaro suit would work. A lighter colored fresco, especially one of the very mottled new Crispaire-s with patch pockets could also do the trick.

    But for all practical purposes, I'd be willing to bet that you see a lot of blah with overly business / dark / slick suits with buttondowns and printed ties.

    its not about losing my nerve. if everyone said they have BDs but did not like the idea, id press on, but considering it seems there is a dearth of BDs, i wouldnt want to make a challenge that would preclude the masses from entering.

    tho i guess it would make the poal easier for me to make.

    Sadly enough, boychik, I think that I will have to decline participation in this challenge. I am scheduled to be meeting some acquaintances from out of town for drinks after dinner on Friday, and they, as a group, I expect, will be decked out in the fullest of suited splendor, which would include French/double cuffed shirts, and no buttondown collars. BD collars will not be grand enough for this bunch, I fear.

    So sorry to disappoint.

    Good Sukkot to you. (One assumes that the holiday has nothing to do with the old blaxploitation movie, "I'm Goin' to Git You, Sukkah" - sorry, couldn't resist the pun.)

    Lol crusty, no correlation.

    At present there is a very good chance that I will change the requirement from a BD collar shirt, to requiring a striped shirt with any collar. No solids, checks, plaids.... striped shirts only. And no micro stripes that dissolve to solid.

    The other requirements will remain. Final the word will be given later tonight or tomorrow. Hang with me, guys.

    Feel free to share thoughts on the change.

    no thoughts on swaping a stripe shirt for the BD?

    food for thought in the meanwhile....
