    I will accept blends if linen constitutes the major part, and leave it up to your conscience to adhere to this ruling! :bigstar:

    Please remember : "Front and back shots compulsory" - in order for us to evaluate the true fit! - I might make exceptions to the rule in the case of the reasons mentioned above, but this is the main guideline. :bigstar:

    Thank you, I'd like to participate, but my main concern was the compulsory front and back photographs, because I don't have any back photographs and, as I said, there no possible way for me to don linen trousers in this weather.

    Victor, the fit on those white pents is fantastic.

    Thank you, I'll pass on the complements to my tailor. They're the result of a project, incorporating the Ghurka waistband model posted by Ambrosi on his blog.
    Btw, the tan ones fits the same, the leg position changed how they photograph.

    How about taking 5minutes for an indoor shot from the back? :bigstar:

    Okay thanks. I'll double-check the blends and see if they qualify.

    I have some I'll try to shoot. Don't think I can make the deadline though. What's the prize?

    You get to call the next challenge and run it. Yes, it's lucrative.

    Ah, it's one of those. I'm glad they're still running. I was wondering why the early deadline.

    Unfortunately, I've been too sick to go anywhere or do anything today. Last night in the Biergarten on a typical, freezing SF summer evening set me back a couple days. But it was worth it to bask in your glow for a bit, SB.

    Here's pics of some linen pants by SA that I posted a year or so ago. As mentioned then, pls. excuse the zombie expression and the not so great shirt/tie. I was taking pics of like five very different pairs of pants and had selected a shirt/tie combo that I hoped wouldn't go too bad w/ any of the pants, but I'm sure didn't go very well w/ any:

    I'm sorry for the poor quality photographs, there's a better one earlier on this thread of the same pair of trousers.
