    How about: darker shirt than jacket, corduroy shirt, white trousers in winter, with grey suit jacket?

    Gingham, plaid, or tattersall shirt challenge. Every body should have one at the very least.

    That were mine (I think). I didn't limit it to jacket or suit, but suggested extra credit if the item were more prominent. (As in, don't wear the same pair of cufflinks and expect to get respect). The idea was to do two very different quality fits with the same item(s).

    I think I had another idea last week, but can't remember what it was....

    Thanks for all the votes, I am really flattered that so many people decided to vote for me :embar:. Special shout outs to Anden, Cleav, tchoy, Butler and Towers who I voted for and Stitch for organising and hosting a really fun Friday challenge. I'll try and come up with a topic for the next Friday challenge during the day, so keep checking this thread or the WAYWRN thread for more info.

    I was thinking about doing a "jeans and tailored jacket" challenge (don't tell Mimo, he'll have a seizure when he hears that) but then I saw that it was actually done a few years back. Would it be OK to repeat an old challenge? I might twist the original challenge by requiring ties to be worn....

    I do have exactly one pair of jeans, but my main reason is that it will 100% guarantee that I don't win :sly:

    And yes, you have said that you hate me but I know you really love me :inlove:

    lol. i would not expect many good fits from this, but sure, lets see what happens!

    always, babi.


    hell no. i also have the same pair i wore in that old challenge. but neither of those jeans should be anywhere near a SC. and the ones from the old challenge dont really fit well/look good on me at all.

    Well, I haven't decided yet what it will be so you might still be in it Stich. I have a few other ideas and might pick one of those just to keep you playing. Really, the competition isn't nearly as fun if you aren't in it :nodding:
