    Ah, good!

    I'm going to recreate this post, from some time back. This isn't the competition entry (unless shit hits the fan before the deadline).

    Don, having a similar pair of pants I find that a light blue shirt can wash the look out a bit, particularly when you take your jacket off. I realise the rules for the challenge this week necessitate a blue shirt but I can't help thinking something like, say a crisp white or even an orange university stripe, would look better. Just my two pesos.

    No chance to wear anything remotely CM this week, so this fit from a few weeks ago will have to do. Stretching the rules of this FC to the limit.... [​IMG]

    The PoW has a blue overcheck. I believe that my fit does conform to the letter, if not the spirit, of the law. Gotta try something to stand out in this sea of blue [​IMG]

    With a blue overcheck. The rule is that the garment has to contain blue, not that the garment has to primarily be blue.
