Friday Challenge - The Green Tie

This week’s Friday challenge on Styleforum was hosted by me. The challenge: Compose a great outfit involving a green tie.

Why?

Green is, alongside brown, my favourite colour for ties.

I’m not going to elaborate, but simply let these random pics from the challenge speak for themselves:

Styleforum Friday Challenge - Americans vs. the rest of the world

Last weeks Friday challenge on Styleforum was a team based challenge: “FURRINERS V MURICANS BEST OF THE BEST A-GAME ONLY”.

This meant that each poster could chose an outfit he was particularly satisfied with and enter it into the challenge. The Americans put up a great fight, but the “furriners” took home the victory. I have picked out a few outfits that I found particularly appealing from the winning team:

Pingson - A man who is incredibly consistent in finding great combinations of colours/patterns (and impeccable fit). A forum favourite, unsurprisingly.

image

Butler - Refined taste and flair, most of the time in lovely suits and jackets from Steven Hitchcock. Never boring.

image

Anden - Great poster who is definitely one of my favourites, mainly because he is not afraid of trying out new interesting combinations.

image

TTO - Oh come on tumblr, you already know Theo. Very personal style, which no one could do better.

image

Timotune - A man who has found a winning concept in colours and fit, and sticks to it. With subtle improvements all the time, he is now one of the most consistently great posters.

image

Betelgeuse - I honestly don’t know that much about this poster, but this fit pretty much speaks for itself, flawless.

image

Me - yep, I am that smug.

image

Holdfast - While I don’t always agree with his tie choices, this is just brilliant.

image

RogerP - Again, a poster I don’t know that much about, but that suit & those shoes are just stellar.

image

tchoy - A bespoke customer who really knows what he likes. He has got an incredibly inspiring tumblr, unfortunately I cant remember the url right now.

image

sansimeon - Another poster I don’t know anything about (other than the fact that he┬┤s a fellow Scandinavian, perhaps Swede). This fit is just great though.

image

MrChris - A fellow Swede I think. Obviously a fan of quality suits and shoes. I almost didn’t pick this one out because of the terrible angle, but changed my mind as you can still see it’s a very nice outfit.

image

Shen - Another Scandinavian who I don’t know that much about. This is classic stuff done good though.

image

Most posters were in fact great, but I excluded some due to too much cropping, bad angles and/or picture quality.

See all participants (including the “Murricans”) here.

Sunday stroll with the dogs. Wearing casual stuff, like a tweed sport coat with patch pockets, jeans, OCBD shirt, wool tie & suede chukkas.

Blue suede shoes.

Best of my WAYWRN Part 2

This weeks Friday challenge on Styleforum encourages all participants to bring out their A game. You will be allowed to chose from all the posts you’ve ever posted in Styleforums WAYWRN-thread and pic the one of your outfits you deem your personal best. These are a selection of the outfits I have posted that have gotten a lot of positive feedback.

I would definitely change a few details before wearing these today, but all in all I think most of them are pretty decent.

Pt 1

Getting as much wear out of my tweed as possible while the weather allows for it.
