    OTH, a striped tie challenge would probably ensure a healthy number of participants, which is a challenge in itself this time of the year.

    hmmmmm.

    i really like a lot of these options. very much like the british idea, but i fear participation will be low, and it really will be a very hard concept to vote on.

    i will pick one of these idea by tonight.

    Stitchy, I'm kinda tied up this week with the aforementioned travel. You think you could run this one for me?

    For you, anything.

    This weeks challenge will be the striped tie challenge.

    Because striped ties are now my jam and because I think it will promote entries.

    Ill start the new thread sometime when I am bored at work later today.

    That's how I read it at first too, Cleav. I think stitches just meant that wearing a jacket is required, not necessarily that it has to be striped. Not positive, tho.

    ^^ Well, if one is wearing a tie, a jacket should be required.

    Still confused. So a jacket is not required? Currently it says a jacket is required.



    Oh, and who's going to be first to post a fit pic of just a tie and jacket with no shirt?

    oh jeez, guys. one has to wear a tie and jacket. the tie needs stripes and the jacket does not.




    i was hoping someone would do better and leave out the pants too.
