    Welcome gentlemen to the May Friday challenge! Jackets in spring are an essential item depending on what part of the globe you live in. Whether its rainy, damp, cold or plain snowing; you need something that protects you from the elements..well we want to see how you get it done stylishly!

    It would be great to have the window of entries go on until the 19th and then start the polls to have people vote. I am open to giving the thread more time to allow more people to enter their fits and we'll gauge if we need to move the polling date further down the road on the 19th. Below are some examples:

    Good luck gentlemen!

    @chocsosa. Are Spring sport jackets allowable too? Not going to be all that cold during that period in the South.

    I would say yes.. but keep in mind the more creative, the more points...It was really geared towards outerwear pieces like raincoats, linen overcoats, suede jackets, etc.. but yea springs sports jackets are allowed. Good luck!
