    Spending this week not feeling well, but here's a picture from a few weeks ago (which I know won't count but it will demonstrate how sound the concept of this challenge is).

    Brooks Brothers camel hair jacket, yellow OCBD, and tie, Hermes yellow pocket square, Tommy Hilfiger yellow cotton sweater vest, Ralph Lauren Polo embroidered cord trousers, and Allen Edmonds brogue suede Strands.......

    ^ Critters on trousers is all kinds of fun. Hope you feel better soon.

    Definitely in on this one. Interesting challenge, especially in winter.

    Traveling with only two jackets. One is lighter than the trousers on hand, but not really a good fit for this challenge. C'est la vie.

    Interested to see the entries here. I went with medium/dark grey trousers today, but I kept running into a city/country dichotomy with the various lighter jackets I was contemplating.

    Mr. Doe, I think the trousers would need to be much darker to merit inclusion in this challenge.

    John, you can call me John. I humbly disagree. The challenge said as long as the pants are visibly darker than the SC, which to my eye they are. I guess the OP can decide.




    I like that.

    The easiest way to check is to open it in photoshop and desaturate the picture. If they are visibly darker when desaturated, then they pass.

    That does not look like it'd qualify.

    John Doe. It's a good fit. Grab the artificially darkened version and submit it as your own [​IMG]
