    I think I'll make this my inaugural entry, since I have just the jacket for this. It's about 60 degrees too cold for it to make sense seasonally, of course, but what's a little discomfort in the face of a good challenge?

    3 and 12 are both less than 20. Can we get a lower bound?

    I'll go count them when I look for something that isn't navy.

    Then sign myself into some sort of rehab...

    I'm thinking of using this suit again. Don't tell me this looks navy? If so, then it must be your monitor that needs adjusting.

    Blue is that, not navy. Love that Finamore Eli!

    Regardless, people should post what they deem to be appropriate as per Butler's instruction and the masses shall decide surely.

    Splendid.

    Not as bad as I thought, counted 11 navy blazers and 5 navy sportcoats.

    Even if a few are hiding somewhere, I can still buy the two boating blazers I want for summer and come in under my upper bound.

    I am of the opinion that Friday challenge deadlines should be on... Friday. Poll goes up Saturday or Sunday, and is done by midnight Monday.

    I agree with SB. Deadline Friday, vote all weekend, winner crowned Monday and new challenge is announced COB Monday or early Tuesday at the latest.

    Not sure if it's possible for this challenge, but maybe in the future.

    This week's challenge looks tough, not sure if I have a winter ready non-navy SC.
