    Hot on the heels of the Green Tie Challenge is this week's Friday challenge, the BTC (originally coordinated by @Cleav at the beginning of last year).

    Is a brown tie one of your top 10 staples?

    In this Brown Tie Challenge let's demonstrate, or otherwise, the versatility and range of any shade of brown tie.You will wear a suit, SC or odd-jacket combination and a tie of course (!) is obligatory.

    Challenge details:

    Submissions must be posted by 1700 AEST Saturday 27th February 2016. All submissions are to have been worn week beginning 22nd February 2016. The poll will go up directly on Saturday evening AEST and close on Monday 29th February 2016.

    Cool. I made it as an example. [​IMG]

    That's my favorite and maybe only brown tie. I'll have to check my cache.

    Fun. Are these Friday challenges open to all posters? Or is it invite only?

    I promise I didn't just put this on for the challenge. I actually had a meeting tonight.
