    Dennis Walter gave me the idea for this challenge with this post:
    I think quite a few of you have at least one pin- or chalk striped suit in your wardrobes (a SC is fine, but very hard to pull off). So the challenge of the week is simple: 1. Wear a pin- or chalk striped suit/SC. 2. Post it before Saturday evening (Swedish time). 3. The outfit must have been worn this month (to get more interesting submissions). 4. All levels of formality are welcome. I'd really like to see someone attempt this in a non-CBD way.

    Ah, crap.
    I dont have a good chalk- or pinstripe suit to use this week.
    So sad, one arrives from my tailor in 3 weeks...

    I would be lying if I told you this picture was made last month. I will try to get a new outfit in this week with the same suit:

    I like how pinstripe suits can make you look all bossy or all sprezzy depending on how you decide to wear them.

    I'm going for bossy this time.
