    Don't you have a peak lapel odd jacket? Dudeman, that's a missed opportunity.

    Nah, I think he just laid down a marker that will be very hard to beat. The only weakness here is that Claghorn doesn't have feet and therefore can't sport the iconic shoes of #menswear--either narrow-waisted loafers in grain or suede, or double-monks.

    Some predictions: lots of the aforementioned shoes, lots of linen, lots of cream/eggshell trousers, lots of high-waisted trousers, lots of slubs, lots of beards. (My entry will tick all but one of those boxes).

    I do, but BnT is more #menswear

    My strategy for this challenge was to try to reference as many of the things @Anden included in the examples as possible, and then add linen and slubs to that. That's what #menswear means, right?

    First, linen galore: linen blend jacket, linen shirt, linen pocketsquare.
    Matka silk tie with slubs for days.
    Bonus points for aircraft-carrier sized lapels.

    Down below, we've got cream trousers that are cotton but are cuffed like they're wool.

    To cap it all off, dubmonks in suede.

    @heldentenor Love the PS/jacket/shirt/tie combo. Would love a close-up if you have one.

    All the pieces look great, but I don't think the white shirt goes well with the cream pants. I think a light blue shirt would look much better here.

    @Coxsackie well that's my entry done and dusted. Great look and I love the suit--first wear/post on SF?

    Also, you forgot to give yourself credit for the bigass oak door, another iconic staple of #menswear.

    Thanks, I've posted the suit once before, but it's a summer suit and we've been in winter here in Sydney.

    Predictably, though - first day of spring today and it's suddenly 22 degrees in the shade! That's Sydney for you.

    Don't discount your entry yet, it's strong.

    This is off to a strong start. Doesn't look like I'll be able to participate (going out of town), but look forward to what everyone else comes up with...maybe a linen DB with a polo and Belgian loafers [​IMG]

    I must say that I'm utterly impressed by the entries so far. Both the thought behind the fits and the photography.
