    I blew it. I am wearing both blue and gray today. Yesterday's fit would have been in but for the blue shirt. :(

    I just heard about the challenge today and this was the closest thing I wore this week. The jacket has blue in it, but everything else is legit. Feel free to disqualify.

    Leaving aside your abject failure to abide by the riules stitchy, I have to say that for a man with a stated aversion to pocket squares you have absolutely nailed the perfect compliment to your threads with today's adornment.
