    That is allowed, as per the first post. Only the tie must be soporific, though I hope good taste will still prevail if your planning on wearing something a bit louder for your coat/suit etc.

    Does this count?

    On a side note, I tried uploading my full fit pic, but it said it couldn't because the image exceeded 10mb. Any idea how to make this smaller so it will upload?
