    Also an early entry from me today: Due to personal circumstances, I'm not back at regular work hours. I was in today, but won't be tomorrow. I'm counting the shoes and the tie fringe as my accessories, but I defer to T if that does not qualify. (Sorry about the crazy shot angles. to burnt out to edit) [​IMG]

    You asked for peacock, so that's what you're getting! I had a hard time finding odd accessories, and after searching my apartment I came up with nothing. Until I figured I could use the very thing that was hanging around my neck as an accessory, Fred Astaire style. So, without further ado, my first challenge entry:

    I gotta say... My tastes might be much more sedate than this, but this challenge is all kinds of awesome. Good choice, T.

    Some great fits in here thus far.

    Wish I could participate, I'm traveling today though :(

    Thanks Derek [​IMG] It's the first time I'm wearing a tie for a belt, and I have to say, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. It's a little silly, but it matches the outfit. I don't think I'd do it with a more sedate jacket though, it would stand out too much. Looking forward to your fit, and I hope you'll feel better!

    Couldn't find a brooch that looked anything but ridiculous, so I went with a tie clip I inherited from my grandad.

    Navy striped linen/cotton 3/2 jacket. Purple checked shirt. Gold knit tie. Light tan belt. White chinos. Light tan longwings. Sockless.

    these are all great. monkey man bringing that HEAT!!! not sure i should get involved in this one. diaz - really like the combo and fit. i know you prefer the fuller fit on the pents, but i would like to see them a tad slimmer. just my preference, do your thing of course.

    Me telling Chicago's 50 degree mid-May stretch to go to hell. Will attempt to post better pictures later. Odd accessory is a barely visible tie clip.

    Edited to try to get a slightly better picture of the jacket.

    Goddamit...I came here to post mine and it turns out I have to go after Tir? Oh well. I'm counting my flower pin as an accessory and hoping my tie is bright enough to count. Extra sprezz for missing tassel on my Belgians
