I see you shop at the excuses store, did they have a sale recently? You seem to be well stocked.

I suspect that I will be disqualified :)

3. Don't just put together some kind of "timeless & classic" fit that you would wear any given day and try and say it would fly 50 years ago too, so it counts. I will disqualify such tomfoolery.


but I saw "The Man With The Golden Gun" yesterday, and the 70s Roger Moore is the coolest dressed Bond

I was thinking more Nucky Thompson, but either way it is fantastic.

Peaky Blinders or Nucky Thompson - different countries, same general genre of characters. Actually, were Dennis and I in the same place at the same time, wearing our entries for this challenge, the effect would be very cool, IMHO.
