    I think that could be a good choice any season but Summer...people are much more-limited this time of the year in their choices. Basically, the Summer Suit Challenge of last week covered this territory.

    I have some decent suits from pre-sf. Mostly SFA. Got quite a few Thomas Pink ties that are far from awful (a bit too suit-y for what I wear these days though).

    And I think it's possible...though very, very challenging, to wear a suit jacket as a blazer. I mean, I could cheat in that one because I happen to have something which is very much an odd jacket (brown tweed herringbone, 3 patch pockets) that I also had pants made for...so technically a suit. But that would be, I think, a violation of the spirit of that hypothetical challenge.

    Given that Bastille Day, July 4th, and some sort of Korean national holiday are all coming up soon, I think the Patriot Challenge might be a good one.

    This one would be very very interesting.

    Pink, I would be able to participate on that one.

    Clap would have to build around black red and yellow. A challenge indeed.

    Considering how many would be going red, white and blue, I think it could be quite unpleasant. Still, since when was that a reason not to do a Challenge?
