    Any similarities between my fit and Spoozy's are entirely coincidental - honest!

    FWIW, CinqueColori (actually, under the rules, SeiColori, but who's counting).

    Blue
    Grey
    White
    Green
    Yellow
    Cordovan

    One hopes that the fit does not evoke either Ringling Brothers or Fisher-Price (though the inclusion of a red rubber nose or orange fright wig would push the color totals to seven or eight [​IMG] )

    Nice, Crusty. Like the tie.

    Working on my "self picture taking skills"

    [​IMG]

    The tie is green with small orange dots, they look pink in the pic but it's orange, hence zee orange PS[/SPOILER]


    Derek, I think there's a bit too much going on here, pattern-wise. You at least need a plain shirt without the twill, and a plain white square would help too.

    Awesome, like everyone else has said.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG][/SPOILER]


    Everything is fantastic here except the tie, which seems a bit too shiney for the tweed. And you need to button that collar.

    CinqueColori:
    Shirt - white
    Jacket - black (or grey)
    Tie - lilac
    Pants - navy
    Shoes - red (Bordeaux)
    Square - pink

    Also post 9,000 [​IMG][/SPOILER]


    The square and shoes look awfully close to the same color, but you deserve a pass. [​IMG]

    Hey there! I was on vacation from WAYWRN, but this challenge was just too much fun to pass up!


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lavender shirt
    Fuchsia/navy bow tie (weirdly tied, it would seem)
    Brown sportcoat
    Green pants
    #8 shoes
    "Black watch" colored cap

    So: Lavender, fuchsia, brown, green, burgundy.[/SPOILER]


    Great look, BB! The cap and bow are great. This style really suits you.

    Mike and Acrid are great, but I already commented on them.

    The five colors:
    White shirt and pocket square
    Blue blazer
    Green tie
    Nantucket Red pants
    Brown shoes and belt
    Silver buckle and watch (bonus hue)

    The whole look:
    [​IMG]

    All colors together:
    [​IMG]

    Shoes:

    Didn't you guys just get snow? What are you doing sockless?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    It is amazing! I can see Parker's feet from my livingroom [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Fantastic.

    O/O, the tie is not something I'd wear, but as usual it's fantastically well coordinated with the rest of the outfit.


    Five Colour Challenge Entry (worn yesterday):
    [​IMG]

    Grey plaid suit
    Blue microcheck shirt
    Dark Red (Manton, avert your eyes) tie
    Off-white square
    Black shoes

    Still working on figuring out what to wear with this suit, so the challenge came at the right time to experiment a bit. Probably a bit too much, tbh, but hey, what's life without a little jazziness at times! [​IMG]

    If it wasn't for the challenge, if I was using the same everything else, I think I'd have gone for a navy tie with some red highlights and something with vaguely similar colours for the square.

    Looks like the trousers need to be shortened a fraction more too, based on the full-length pic. Funny, I didn't notice that IRL.
    That's a sweet suit. I don't know if I'd have the guts to wear it, but it looks great on you. I think your alternative combo you mention sounds nicer than the one you're wearing, though.

    5 COLOUR CHALLENGE....
    Afternoon/Evening Gents - Holdfast is my current favourite, Love that whistle...

    Anyway...Green Jacket, Pink Shirt, Navy tie, White Hankerchief, Charcoal trousers, Tan shoes.

    [​IMG]
    This is...relatively subdued for you, LC.

    Challenge
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    BLACK Shoes
    CREAM Trousers
    GRAY Waistcoat
    PINK/WHITE Striped Shirt
    BLUE Coat
    SILVER/BLUE Checked Tie
    PURPLE Square
    -TTO
    Theo, you're killing it as usual. I do think the square is perhaps a bit too close in color to the blazer, but that's a very small quibble.


    Edit to add: MKtitsworth: Your best fit yet, by far. A darker tie would have been better, but this is a huge step forward.

    2) Off white jeans
    3) Brown SC
    4) Burgundy captoes
    5) Blue polka dot square
    6) Fleshy socks

    ^ FTFY. ^
    I really like this, acrid. I think pink and brown often look very good together, but I'm afraid that most other people don't so I often talk myself out of pink/brown combos before leaving the house.

    You always have nice ties. Today is no exception.
    You haven't been around long enough to know how ironic that compliment is. But thanks! [​IMG] It means I'm making progress.

    P.S. Nobody on this site mistakes sartorial compliments for untoward passes.
    Speak for yourself. I take what I can get.

    Didn't need the tie. Also, chose to interpret this challenge as a call to for a little boldness:

    1) Pink shirt
    2) Off white jeans
    3) Brown SC
    4) Burgundy captoes
    5) Blue polka dot square

    [​IMG]


    Extra points for the salt and pepper hair.

    My first post on WAYWRN.
    Here's my "young & fresh" twist on CinqueColori for FRIDAY challenge.

    The biggest problem I ran into, was taking pictures...
    I couldn't took a picture of myself with right angle, to show the colours and fit properly.
    Forgive me, but after countless tries, I gave up and decided to just display the items

    1. Navy suit
    2. Lavender shirt, with contrast white collar
    3. Brown Tie
    4. Orange/Yellow/Green (count 1) Pocket square
    5. Burgundy oxfords

    Bonus points: no black, no white, no grey! [​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Could be a major contender, but hard to assess without the outfit on.

    ^ New suit on Monday, yes. Someone once asked if I colored my hair gray. The look I gave her was similar to the left most pic.

    really? i think the shoulders and waist suppression are pretty good (best he has posted yet - i agree).

    however a striped suit jacket that looks very much like an odd jacket coupled with the overly wide (at least for his frame) bellied lapels and color choices makes it hard to stay its a "huge step" forward.

    I agree and I would appreciate hearing what's off about the color choices.
