    In light of the very cold weather we have been experiencing the last few weeks (at leafs in the Northern hemisphere), this weeks challenge is to do a three-piece look for some extra warmth. However this has to be done with a creative twist - no true three-piece suits are allowed but rather you must use an odd waistcoat or alternatively cardigan to create something that mimics a three-piece look. I will allow anything that has buttons on the front to be used and I will also allow odd jacket and trousers, so suits are not strictly needed (although I would prefer to see as many looks as possible that incorporate a suit for a more true three-piece look). NB, ties must be worn! So gentlemen, dig through your closest for that odd waistcoat you never use or that cardigan you didn't remember that you owned and do a creative take on the three-piece suit. EDIT: On request I will also allow pairings of matching trousers and waistcoat with an odd jacket...... EDIT #2: Deadline for submission of pics in Sunday Feb 9, 09.00 CET (=UTC+1) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] This weeks contestants:

    I have a question somewhat related to this challenge.

    Is there a specific name for the equestrian tattersall vests like this one?

    Forgive my ignorance, and thank you in advance.

    If I get to see some clients in the rest of the week, which I hope, I'm in.

    Some slovenly ones already. Scruffy fawn cardigan with a navy suit indeed.

    I'm so glad you did this one! I will try to participate and really look forward to seeing what some of the heavy hitters put together. I have several odd vests, but no clue how to wear most of them. Excited!!!

    They are apparently called "cubbing vests".

    Intriguing choice Pingson, with a lot of scope within your restriction for different choices of that middle layer.

    It'd be a good theme to open up to the SW&D crowd too; it'd be interesting to see how they'd interpret it given the restrictions.

    Cool idea. Will have to see if I in fact own a waistcoat or cardigan.
