Last week was all about the uniform. This week we're gonna go to a place where less of us are as comfortable. This week it's all about denim. The rules are simple:
  • Wear something in denim, be it a garment or an accessory. That means that anything from denim suit to denim tie, a shirt, or a regular pair of jeans will qualify you.
  • Keep it CM compatible. This is a pretty loose definition, but when in doubt, ask yourself "could I post this in either regular or MC casual WAYWRN?" If the answer is yes, then submit it.
  • The outfit has to have been worn this month, ideally this week.
  • It has to be posted before Saturday (or on Saturday, before I put the poll up).
Examples:
What you (probably/hopefully) don't want to do:

Would this qualify? Edit: This is my entry. Thanks, @EFV
x-post WAYWRN, for the challenge, then . . .
Funny little anecdote. Putting up a camera to take pictures of oneself wearing clothes, to show other men on the Internet, is perhaps not something you want to be caught doing in public. Therefore, I have found a few places pretty close to where I live, where I can do this without disturbance from prying eyes. Or so I though... Today I went to a newly found location, behind a school that's closed for the summer, and where no one goes. I set up my camera, but get the creeping feeling that I'm being watched. I look up and see that there's a cleaning lady inside the school, taking pictures of me with her phone, probably thinking I'm a burglar scouting the place with my camera. Well, at this moment I can't very well just pack up everything and move along, I have to continue taking pictures of myself, to show her that I'm just a harmless iGent. If I look slightly uncomfortable, it may have something to do with this. (I guess this story would make a decent #StyFoDude quote for Vox).

Certainly would!


On chambray:

There is chambray that's very similar to denim. If you couldn't tell from looking at it, it's allowed.

I think I actually wore denim to work earlier this month, but it was of the white variety, so I will disqualify myself from this one..

Damn. Suede shoe requirement last week. Denim requirement this week. Looks like I'm out again, but will enjoy seeing everything that gets posted.

I would probably wear different glasses, but otherwise I don't really see what's wrong with this.

@archidbaldleach do you not own a pair of jeans?

I do not. Haven't for at least 20 years. I'd rather wear linen on a hot summer day and I'd rather wear cords / moleskins in winter.
