    I agree, but also think it's pretty much up the challenge organiser. However, I hope he reads that suggestion!

    Anyway, my only non-navy blue suits & jackets are summer items rather than winter ones. I tend to favour navy for winter and a mix of either navy or lighter blues for summer. I am half-thinking about ordering a steel blue suit though so will watch the challenge thread with interest!

    Ummmm... no. Folks need to get on the stick or the baton is passed to the runner-up. I believe there's precedent...

    As for this week, we got notice of the challenge on Wednesday, which is plenty of time to decide whether you're in or out. Butler, can we say the deadline is Saturday, 08:00 GMT or thereabouts?

    I'm afraid that this old, pre computer generation geezer has messed up:

    When I posted the challenge, I did not used the poll option, as I thought one could do that later in the process, when setting up the actual poll. When trying to edit the post, it turned out that the poll is apparently not an option :hide:

    Any idea how to fix this?

    you have to click the edit thread button not the the edit post button, then you can add a poll.

    Blue enough for you? The direct sunlight makes everything a bit more shiny than it is in real life. The suit is a normal S120s wool.

    As Stitchy says, you'll edit the thread to add the poll, but not until all of the entries are in. Once the poll is created it cannot be edited.
