    Going to try this one more time. Lots of new posters turned out for the plaid/black challenge, and there was more going on in WAYWRN yesterday than it was all summer, which was nice to see at the least.

    So, new challenge. Making the poal close early for our Furriner friends and ending it a day in advance so you can get your fits together. Just remember :

    I suggest dressing well in clothes that fit.
    - B


    Added more options to choose from. They are :

    -Best double breasted / 3 piece suit
    -Best use of tweed
    -Best use of the color orange
    -Most unique shoes
    -Enough with your stupid WAYWRN challenges, Spoo

    My guess is that someone will wear a vintage DB tweed three piece suit with an orange tie and Allen-Edmonds spectators.

    Yes, I'm lookin' at you, MBrenin.

    I went DB or three piece because the tweed challenge should be done later in the year.

    I own no orange ties, nor Allen-Edmonds specs. However, I have multiple 3 piece DBs and a couple 3 piece tweed vintage suits. [​IMG]

    Too hot for tweed. However, my most recent vintage 3 piece tweed suit should be ready at the tailors on Thursday. [​IMG] If I don't have to wear it anywhere but the house, you are ON!!!

    I think you should have had the black challenge next.

    Also,

    If you are going to go through the trouble of setting up the challenges, you should have a winner.

    What team won plaid?

    +1, I think another poal should be opened.

    I like the idea of those challenges, Spoo.

    I can´t support neither of your suggestions, though. This is why:

    - i don´t own a three piece suit, nor a double breasted one
    - it´s too early for tweed
    - I used orange this week
    - I think the most unique shoe will turn up some fair oddities
    - there is no way i´d not support those challenges. The idea is great!

    So, here comes my suggestion: best use of black.

    I don't understand the last option. I think the challenges are great; they really liven things up in WAYWRN.

    If it was a "team" effort, your beautiful daughter brought it home for the US of A.

    If it is a single winner...that was clearly me. [​IMG]

    I agree - on a team basis, i think the Yankees really came through ... whilst on an individual basis, both your DB with the subtle bow tie, as well as your full on plaid were very well done.

    Spoo - i also thought black should be the obvious next choice.

    Btw - in many companies, there is casual Friday (i think Threadbearer noted this too) ... so if 3 piece, or DB wins, i'm gonna sit this one out. no way i am wearing a 3 piece or DB to work on casual Friday ... unless i can find a 3 piece denim suit between now and then.

    I suggest a Netherlands vs Spain WAYWRN...a knockdown, no-holds barred, clog versus sombrero, windmill against taco, below sea level clashing with Bilbao, fight to the death.

    I vote for black, as I did last time ...

    Or just monochromatic outfits. Keep it simple, keep it clean but make it look good. Is SF up for the challenge?

    I'm all for the three piece. I'm guessing that this is on a Thursday because of casual Fridays? Oh well.

    Should I really redo the poal to include black, and make it on Thursday instead of Friday?

    Friday is casual at my office, i.e jeans (as if my office could get any more casual). However, I have recently given up on jeans for Friday since I finally came to the realization that jeans really aren't that comfortable...at least not ones I would wear to work. I am the freak at my office anyway. Either day works. Mike

    Save the tweed challenge for winter. Plus, it'll give me a chance to order my plus-fours.

    Challenges like this are annoying when your wardrobe is split up around the world.
