    Recycled look from yesterday, as the only entity saying FU in the metro NYC area today is Mother Nature - attire is practical (corduroys and hiking boots).

    I don't know if this is FU enough for this contest, but it's certainly eccentric enough.

    When I grow up, I want to be crusty.

    I'm obviously not the one who decides these things, but I'd say Crusty qualifies and that his outfit will be tough to beat.

    After that exchange, I am reminded that, although chronology is inevitable, maturity is entirely optional. Besides, who said that I was an actual grown up - though, in my own mind, my current role is "geezer in training". :satisfied:

    Thanks betel! The tie is from exquisite trimmings' own collection. Extremely good value for just £55 new and £30 on sale. Sadly, they're all out of stock at the moment.
