    I also like your look..but reading the stipulations, it states "outerwear"......jacket or coat.
    I didn't take that to mean sports coat/blazer.

    Most people pretend that I'm like everyone else.

    Indeed. Very clean. I think that one would go down well on either side of the forum, @Shen

    @Coxsackie , you seem to have missed the second line of the challenge rules: "You have to wear some sort of outerwear." With the examples that @EFV provided, I think it should be clear what that means.

    ^ I think the problem is that I don't (or didn't) understand the meaning of the word "outerwear".

    I took it to mean "the outermost garment of one's outfit" but apparently it has a much more specific meaning than that.

    One lives and learns. I withdraw. If anyone needs to contact me, I'll be fishing.

    When fishing, wear outerwear.

    Whilst on the subject of fishing, the man who fishes the pond scum out of the Lily Pond is behind me fishing out the pond scum. If anyone is wondering why there weren't any entries from anywhere around here, it's been between 90F and 110F here all week.

    Only the man who fishes out the pond scum and I have, like mad dogs and Englishmen, gone out in the midday sun.

    (The closest thing to anyone wearing outerwear in this picture are the waders that the man in the Lily Pond is wearing.)

    Many wonderful entrances, so mine will be just for the number
