    Love the challenge but unfortunately working from home for the past few weeks doesn't really allow for me to wear anything remotely close to CM.

    Here is an old fit

    I may get in on this. Just to be clear, shirts must be blue or contain blue i.e. no white shirts. Does the fit have to be from this week? Also, that tie looks mad purple, @EFV .

    Edit. I added some more pics of my old fit. The socks are also blue.

    No white shirts, blue stripes or checks are a minimum. Weird. You're the second person to see a purple tie. There is nothing even remotely purple irl. I'll have to check the colours before posting next time.
    I'll allow older fits, but it's more fun if they, at least, are from August.

    Do I have to wear blue trousers too? If I use navy shoes instead? [​IMG]

    It is supposed to cool down for Friday in NYC, which will be an enticement for me to participate in thie challenge. My only concern is balancing all that blue with some other color, so that the overall effect isn't too bland (as if blandness would be possible with my fits, but still . . .).

    Here is my contribution. The POW trousers have a pale blue over-check - really!

    I never knew how hard it is to take a full body picture with a timer. The picture could have been better, but I did my best!

    The outfit looks like it maybe nice, but it's hard to see. You should crop that top photo so we can see your outfit better.

    Done! The crotch thing is all pose. But it got dark, so didn't get to redo it!

    Much better. In most photo editing programs, you should be able to adjust exposure or brightness too. It's a bit dark.

    I really want to play this game, but I don't have light blue trews to riff off a casual navy jacket. Hm...

    Pairing a navy jacket with odd navy pants seems a bit suicidal hah!
