    As winner of last weeks 'All Blues' challenge I present to you this weeks challenge - the loud tie challenge.

    All you have to do is to wear a loud tie tastefully - can it be done? Yes? Show us how!

    The definition of 'loud' is up to you but it's at the opposite end of the spectrum from soporific.

    Rules -
    1) Challenge is open to fits from this week only from now until midnight AEST Saturday 6th September (Australian time)
    2) Outfits must fit the basic premise of a MC fit i.e shirt, tie, suit/sc, trousers and proper shoes/boots. PS's are optional.
    3) The tie must be loud (D'Uh! [​IMG])
    4) The rest of your fit may be as loud (or not) as you want - just remember to keep it tasteful
    5) One entry per person - if you submit more than one entry, you must nominate one as your final submission


    Edit: Corrected the closing date.

    I couldn't find a way to add a poll to this post so I've created a separate thread. Please vote at http://www.styleforum.net/t/417294/poll-friday-challenge-5th-september-2014-loud-ties-worn-well/0_30

    If the weather in NYC cools off (or dries out) a bit, in!

    This should be fun. I like challenges which get members to post fits they wouldn’t otherwise post, and this surely fits that description.

    Cheers,

    Thanks. It's definitely outside my comfort zone and a challenge for me.

    To be honest, my ulterior motive is to get some great inspiration from the group.

    Dear god.

    There's a fine but important distinction between 'loud' and 'hideous' ...

    Cheers,

    I'll find the loudest I have, and we'll see how far it goes.
