    Jan_ :



    Read your post just in time. So, gentlemen, my contribution (that will catch no vote). Unfortunately today is rainy weather so I had to use the flash. Sorry about the missing lower part... Not a pic I'm proud of, OTOH it's for the Friday challenge.

    Blazer: Night blue, wonderful cashmere.
    Shirt: Blue
    PS: Blue
    Tie: Blue with gold and green
    Cup: Blue with golden stars. [​IMG]

    Friday Challenge (see, I read your instructions, oh, Spoo-meister . . .)

    It occured to me not long ago that one of the great sources of pleasure in popular entertainments these days is invocation of the sense of moral superiority in the viewer, i.e., to put on TV, as entertainment, a person or persons so reprehensible as to please the public that they are not him or her. (it is my only explanation for the popularity of "The Jersey Shore", which does rather take the prize for reprehensible behaviour in creatures otherwise believed to be homo sapiens.)

    On the Internet as well, there are few pleasures as acute as the venting of righteous anger in response to the posting of a troll, in an attempt to silence said troll with logic and persuasive arguments. The only problem with such a pleasure is that is usually the desired response of the original poster, looking to incite flame wars wherever possible.

    That would never be my intent in posting here. However, as my personal style is often at odds with the local aesthetic, if I let out all of the sartorial stops (an unfortunate habit of mine), I will most certainly be the object of criticism, which will invoke that sense of, if not moral, then sartorial superiority that brings so much pleasure to so many.

    So it will be, I sense, with today's posting - a complex set of attire accessorized heavily, with more than a whiff of costume about it, but, it does qualify for today's competition - blue is the dominant color.

    For your viewing pleasure (one way or another), then . . .

    Rainy and blue. BB pictures aren't exactly up to snuff here but use your imagination. Note the extra blue sprezz in the lapel. [​IMG]

    Shirt: BB
    Tie: FIH
    PS: Wang
    Pants: Mabs
    Belt: RL
    Boots: AS for BB
    Socks: BB



    Holdfast:


    RL put out a load of items a few years back with this feature, and I got a handful at the time. It's a detail that always splits the crowd on SF, with the majority being unfavourable. Still, I think it makes for a fun change occasionally.



    Dig this.



    Great tie.



    The mustard gloves are the highlight for me. Lovely.



    Even for a blue challenge, this is too blue for me! [​IMG]



    There's something so delightfully StyleForum about this photo. [​IMG] [​IMG]






    Blue challenge. Managed to incorporate a few recent purchases from earlier in the week into today's look too... must have subconsciously had blue on my mind. [​IMG] Got the crepe-sole suede chukkas from Zegna, and the navy wool bow-tie and the cotton cornflower-blue sweater from RL. All at decent prices, but the bow-tie was the best deal at under a fiver.

    Sorry for the crappy pix, but Mrs. Spoo bounced on me. Anyway, all blue everything.

    Miserable, awful rainy day in New Orleans. As such, I was forced onto the porch. Sorry about the pics, I did the best I could in the lighting and short distance conditions. [​IMG]

    BLUE CHALLENGE!!!

    I think I had some sprezz left over from last week that snuck out. My collar pin/tie bar is only Sterling Silver though....I don't roll as deep as Graeme. [​IMG]

    Anyway, have a great day and try to stay dry/warm.

    Full disclosure: this is yesterday's fit, held over for the challenge. Fridays are difficult days for me to wear challenge-worthy fits because my office is so casual.



    HappyCamper:


    First post in while and i thought i why not enter the competition.

    Pretty crappy picture to show of the fit. No natural light as im wearing this suit for the evening.

    Suit is BB custom (not for me)
    Tie is LaSalles (bluish gray, I hope the picture captures it)
    Shirt is BB extra slim fit w/ Ainsley collar
    PC is random

    Doral:



    Hello all. I have not posted in about a month due to the fact that my organization had a reduction in force (RIF) and I was one of the 42 people that got released. All is not lost though. I got my separation package January 18 at 9:00 am. Had a job interview that same day at 11:00 am and I just got notified today that I was hired and I will be heading to Abu Dhabi in the U.A.E. the first week in March. I am excited and can not wait to leave. Anyone here ever lived/worked in Abu Dhabi?

    Now my input for the blue challenge.

    I vote for yfyf, I don't give a fuck what options that poll has.

    That said, this was certainly a nice collection of outfits, a WAYWRN Challenge gone ab-so-lutely right.

    Voted Fred H. Nice, fresh debut and enough blue for the challenge (not according to the rules, but hey, I'm not a lawyer).

    Overall, my faith in enough contestants for next week's challenge has increased...
