POLL IS UP!

This week's challenge is simple: wear a white jacket and wear it well.

It must be worn this week, but other than that it can be any kind of jacket, from a classic white DJ, through linen and cotton, to white leather. And yes, varieties of white are permitted: cream, ivory, off-white and so on.

**ENTRY DEADLINE EXTENDED until MIDNIGHT PST Saturday 22nd August, to account for Saturday Night Fever.**

The vote will open shortly thereafter and will close at 8pm EST on Monday 24th August.

Any shenanigans will result in the shaking of fingers and loud tut-tutting...

Will enjoy watching this one from the sidelines, since I haven't gotten any white jackets, and have grown out of my only cream colored one.

Hmmm. I have a white jacket, but it's back in my apartment and I'm still travelling. Will enjoy watching this one, though.

Unless it's clearly egregious - i.e. not a white (etc.) jacket - I'm going to leave it entirely to the voters to decide what they think best meets the challenge requirements...
