    Since last week I think we all long to bring back our beloved blues. Therefore this weeks challenge will be to put together an outfit consisting of only blue garments. This, of course, includes SF's favorite color: Navy. There will be 2 acceptable exceptions: Pocketsquare and shoes (if you can successfully pull these two off I will be very impressed however ). All other garments + accessories must contain the colour blue. This challenge ends on Saturday and voting ends on Monday.

    "Contain" as in "be the main color" or does it just have to have blue in it somewhere?

    It has to have blue in it, i.e. striped shirts are allowed as long as one of the stripes are blue, ties are allowed as long as there is blue in them. I am, however, hoping to see some really good monochrome outfits as well.

    Subscribed. Should participate and may even have some ideas for how to make it a true Rhapsody in Blue (I.e., blue head to toe).

    Really nice @Shen and @NOBD! Just a question though NOBD, is there really any blue in that suit? It looks very grey on my screen.
