    Like you say "I'm in." Then you decide what the poster above you has to wear, and the next guy below you who is "in" decides what you wear?

    And so on down the line.

    And we agree not to be a dick and say "Mickey Mouse vest." or something equally absurd.

    Would a dark shirt challenge incite a riot?

    I think this is a good idea, but I'm not sure how easy it would be. I can easily show my wife all of my sport coats, shirts, ties, pocket squares and shoes. I think it'd be pretty hard to pick out an outfit for another guy based on pics from SF. I'm not totally against it though. I think if you own a Micky Mouse vest, it should be fair game. Yo bad.

    Well, I meant that I could tell you to do patterned trousers, or double breasted jacket. And you could tell the guy above you to wear a plaid tie, or tattersall shirt, and so on up the line.

    Most likely, though I'd be out as I don't own anything that would qualify. If one was to do this challenge, I think you would have to at the very least make the tie optional.

    would be very hard. the only thing i could really see as looking good with a jacket, let alone jacket and tie, would be a darker color gingham because its anchored with the white potion of the check.

    This poll doesn't end until tomorrow, but I think we can go ahead and call @Butler the winner. Congrats, sir. [​IMG]

    I know we've been having a lot of idol chatter about the next challenge, but it is his call. Let's get this next challenge on the road.

    Thanks for all the votes, gents. [​IMG]
