    @Anden Just checking... just one item of herringbone as a minumum from the above? Thanks

    Mr. Knightley, I believe that the challenge minimum is one item of herringbone patterned attire, though all multiples of that would be welcomed, I am sure.

    I've gone for the double-barreled approach - overcoat and suit.

    @upr_crust is correct. Only one is required.

    I think the pattern's originator, Marcus Herringbone III, put it best when he said:

    I just took delivery of a gorgeous new mid-brown herringbone tweed suit --- and of course it's going to be 80 degrees in San Francisco today. If the temperature drops I'm in :)

    Again I have to object to the tie requirement, particularly if socks are optional. CM just doesn't mean the same thing in every industry, every culture and every part of the world.

    I'd rather have the option to participate with my kick-ass herringbone suit, pocket square, etc. than to be disqualified entirely.

    Please reconsider?
