    It has been a while since our last WAYWRN challenge and I miss it.

    So in honour of the one who had spent all the time writing up the challenges before, I propose the following..

    Do The Spoo.

    I'm sure all of you guys have seen how the Spoo dresses; this challenge is for those of you who want to take a page from the Spoo in whichever way you wish to and dress accordingly.

    Whether what you get from him is his use of colours, textures or wrist junk, wear it on any day in the next week and a bit, take a picture and submit it! Post up your pictures on or before Friday August 8th!

    Serious, light heartedly or simply a fun parodying, go Do The Spoo!

    A few select few pictures to get you started...

    While I can't say they're all successful looks (sorry Spoo), here's some more ideas for inspiration (this is just whatever i saved for various personal reasons):

    if i'm going to comment on what I think makes a "Spoo" outfit, it's one of the three poses (crossed arms, one hand in pocket with one foot forward, or sitting with side lean), plus the old style spoo of mishmashed items at least one of which has a certain FU-ness (bright color or pattern), or the new toned down Spoo with one solid flashy element , or awesome brogued shoes, or maybe that FU Tom Ford 3 piece big peak lapels look... at least for me that's a bit of what makes Spoo a Poker. plus bonus points for pink cashmere ties, cute feet poking out, and a flashy pocketsquare (try a Versace!) or beads bracelets

    And that is why the Spoo is a good place for a WAYWRN competition to be based on - take what you wish to out of Spoo's outfit and play around with it!

    teh internet, she is written in ink.

    if you want any of those gone just say the word.
    It's a random collection that I've saved over the years since there's probably some element in there I own or might go buy, or just the color combos, texture play, etc.

    Nah, I posted them, leave em. While I wish I could make some of them go away, I see so many of my early (and recent) mistakes in there, which is good. I learned off of these mistakes, and hopefully others can too.

    Is it crazy that I kind of want to see Spoo's face, but at the same time don't want to because then the mystery will be gone? :laugh:

    Do the Spoo sounds like a dance and/or radio catchphrase. Someone please make a youtube video, possibly a video mashup/remix of The Spoo and mafoo buying an Hermes breast wallet in green. I'm imagining the Christian Bale freakout mix.

    Spoo - what type of pants are the lime green ones? I nearly bought a pair of Incotex in that color last year and lament not pulling the trigger; I have not had any luck in finding a reasonable facsimile.

    If Vox were here, he might have made a gif of my poses rolled up into one herky jerky jig. He is missed.

    Those were BB Milanos from last summer.
