    I'll keep it simple:

    >Wear checks (SC or Suit). However, the more checks the more you will catch attention and tastefully win, or be bashed in good SF manner!
    >Submissions must be entered by Sunday midnight
    >Polls will be open on Monday until midnight

    Last summer's check-challenge-winner followed by some other examples:

    Since it seems I'm an exemple (first time for me, thanks you), I'm in.

    Looks like it was a cold day this summer, or a hot winter day on Monday since I was wearing the same jacket.

    Very good idea. Usually I'm not here to promote my works (their s a very good thread for that) but this time, it would be a shame if I didn't introduce to you this very serious candidate !
    And I'll also try to be in

    Well done Cleav! I had to pass on using that jacket today. I normally use mine with charcoal trousers and a blue or grey cashmere tie. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Did you say check mate?

    This is my most extreme check combo ever :D

    Impressive entrances.

    @Tom Miler my sketch was a joke, but it seems you succeeded in making it real. Amazing

    Well, I was wearing a PoW SC today, I guess it qualify?
