    I don't know if it makes any difference at all, but the title of this thread seems a bit.. vague?

    Other than that, all jolly good!

    Good challenge, but I'm out. I just checked. I counted 12 solid navy blue sport coats. No non-navy blue blues. [​IMG]

    I have 2 DB, 3 SB with gold buttons, 2 cotton, 3 linen, 1 suede, and 1 waterproof nylon. [​IMG] Too much.

    Suède and waterproof nylon?! Have we ever seen those on SF?

    The tropical climate here is good for lighter shades of blue. I have baby blue linen, mid blue fresco wool. Might play in this one...

    I don't wear them that often. These pictures are both from last year. The waterproof one is reversible.

    Love the suede one, such a deep shade of blue! Not so sure about the nylon one, though...

    Thanks for posting!

    For myself, I'm happy with the date/time that you originally proposed, and, as it's your challenge (and an excellent one, IMHO, as it dovetails nicely with a new acquisition of mine), set the date/time to your own convenience.

    Hogwash! A girl once asked how many navy blazers I had, after a moment of thought I replied "Pretty sure I have less than twenty."
