    I'm in. It was a fun theme to play around with. So, we're copying entries into this thread, right?



    Didn't particularly want to wear a suit & tie, so had to come up with something more relaxed:

    In keeping with the theme, the socks are a black/grey argyle, and I chose a black leather strap watch & a silver cisele patterned pen just to keep it going... [​IMG]

    This is going to be a hard one to vote. And I confirm that I would not have a chance to compete.

    Estitchy, I love that shirt!

    Hah - I just looked up at my husband as he was heading out to work and noticed he was taking part in the challenge without even knowing about it. Black jeans, white shirt, black/white/grey tie and a black raincoat. Didn't have time to take a picture though, and he looks pretty dishevelled compared to you guys :)

    Are you a girl?

    Sugarbutch, I like this... but why in B&W? What colour are the lines on PS?

    It's all black, white, or gray, so B&W is appropriate, no? The lines are charcoal.

    Color version in the regular WAYWRN thread...

    its ok, but it does not really capture the fit, which i thought was very good.

    for those interested or if you missed it in WAYWRN :)
