    Sorry about the quality of the pics. Camera-phone in a hotel room. At least the missus was able to take one nice pick before I left.

    Pliny, very nice attire. Not a fan of OCBD, but you wear it well...

    Keeping with the theme of last Friday's Challenge of wearing a shirt in an unusual color, this is what I would have worn, had the weather been better (rain was predicted for last Friday, though it hardly rained during daylight hours).

    Suit, shirt, tie, shoes - all BB

    I really like that jacket , and nice overall too Bernouilli. OCBD collars r a bit funky IMO- have to be picky about which jacket collar and tie to match them with. skinny ties, narrow lapels are the go

    Thanks, Pliny. I see your points regarding OCBDs...Again, very well put together, and the socks compliment everything. And upr, I so wish I could pull off a seersucker. Bravo!

    This may further solidify my status as a certifiable wacko when it comes to buttoning points, but that seems a little low.

    | coming from the guy who wears his buttoning point inbetween armpits...

    The buttoning point on Spandexters suit is at the right height, only the jacket front (and likely back) could be an inch longer.

    Button points are a weird thing, and, imo can't really be judged appropriately unless you can see the top of the person's head to get a sense of their height and where it falls.

    Spandexter looks good. Too linear even for me though. Not enough tie, suit contrast, imo. Also, the trousers look too skimpy.

    I like pliny'a color combos, less the socks. As noted the shirt is awful. I wouldn't have put a TV fold square with that either.

    Bernoulli's tie is awful, and so are the gaudy cufflinks. And funny enough, I would think Bernoulli's button point is off more than spandexter's.

    No, just a standard 4IH; the knot is longer than I would've prefered too.

    Kaplan,

    I love what you did there! I don't know if it's perfect like others have said. For instance, I think the first person who commented on the shoes was right. I wouldn't have chosen that. But it's a really strong outfit IMO. I'm jealous of your color matching abilities!
