    Right, seeing as I was picked to run this challenge, despite being only one of the runners-up of the last one (sob sob), here's the one for this Friday: any outfit, formal or casual, using only black, white and grey. We should see some imaginative efforts with entrants being very limited in the colours that can be worn. Time for submitting entries will end on Friday, and the poll will be open over the weekend. Good luck!

    Poll now open!

    Here are all the entries:

    I'm guessing we will see gray suits with white shirts and black ties. [​IMG]

    the main challenge for me, is deciding which all black/gray/white fit to wear.

    I'm in, though it is entirely antithetical to my usual style to eschew color, but yes, I'm in.

    Thank you Stitchy. It's not that I need support, it's merely that a color scheme of black, grey and white will most likely give me the pallor of a corpse, or the mien of a funeral director. Let's hope that at least I'll look like a well-groomed corpse, or a stylish funeral director.

    I've lived 33+ years on the island of Manhattan - I'm tougher than a restricted color scheme :satisfied:

    Let's get this party started. My entry:
    [​IMG]
    Grey pick-and-pick suit.
    White shirt.
    Dark grey satin tie.
    White pocket handkerchief.
    Black monk strap shoes.

    I'm kind of hoping I get to do the next challenge too, as I came up with what I think is a pretty decent theme after I'd started this one. Well, fingers crossed.
