    If only I had any pocket squares. Plenty of patterns other than that. Nowhere close to get a good one and not paying overnight for a PS. :-(

    Get a notepad and pen/crayons, doodle away for an hour over lunch or during a meeting or something. Stick it in pocket.

    TTO, I assume that single-colour, but patterned, squares like the one below are fair game? I used it in a practice attempt today, and it certainly made the game easier but are they allowed?

    It's kind of skirting the rules a little, you lose Barbera points but I will allow it as a square, But NO self stripe shirts!
    If any of you use such a thing, then I require a close up to prove the pattern.

    It may be allowed, but I doubt such shenanigans will garner many votes. Look in your heart, doctor, and do the right thing.

    I assume it's against the rules to submit an old pic?

    Fair enough. I'm traveling now, and without the number of patterns required for participation, but I'll post a couple for entertainment porpoises.

    Hah! I love the suggestions. Unfortunately I'm still building a better wardrobe and my staple navy SC I would probably wear anyways (with patterned pants) will most likely arrive Saturday or Monday, too late for the competition. I have a linen houndstooth but it's casual. I'll sit back and learn for a few more weeks.

    But it would be pretty funny to have a paper towel or the serrated edge of notebook paper popping out as an SC. I'll keep that in mind for you gents.

    would a herringbone shirt count as a self stripe? no big d, because i can just use a butcher stripe too if thats too close to rule bending.

    @uberlazzgo: (Sorry if username is misspelled) that is very very nice!

    I have tried a couple fits and I don't like the end result. [​IMG] This is hard.
